The end of 2018 blasted my ass with this small split. I love good gore, so this 7” became a good nice “holiday cake” for me. So as usual, here is a little info about today’s heroes. G.O.D. or Grotesque Organ Defilement, is well known 3 boys band from Ontario (Canada). They blow up the underground with their interesting and unusual high speed goregrind. Their full length “Body Horror” set a big shoes to fill, so I’m expecting a lot from this new material. Domesticated is a new name for me. I believe they had started in 2016, Victoria City (British Columbia / Canada). This will be my first experience with them, but google says me that they already have 1 album and few more releases. Honestly I’m excited to hear noise from both bands so let’s cut off all this bullshit and put a vinyl on my Japanese turntable 😉
They were silent almost two year, and I started to worry that G.O.D. was about to split up. But, then this split showed up and calmed me down. Finally, some new songs from this unique gore machine. Ok, I must admit these Canadians didn’t disappoint me, pumping energy hits me from the very first riffs. Pitch shifted vomit eructations with classical yelling, fast and buzzing guitar sound, noisy bass and that snare sound, everything still there. This is boiling sound mass could be compared with a creature from the Blob movie, haha!
Domesticated’s side starts with slow, gloomy and melodic intro, first my thoughts were about some kind doom metal, but when the first riffs begins, that thought was wiped away. Domesticated is playing gory deathgrind with really dirty and messy sound. Yes, the production is bad but not awful, I still can recognize most of the riffs and drum beats. By the way – talking about riffs and songs writing, this song (Exorcism Of Lunar Spectre) has a ton chips of tasty old school death metal. The structures are mostly simple, with few cool guitar solos + this one song has very raw atmosphere and I really love it. Maybe this side is not punching as G.O.D. one, but this band still worth of checking.
