To my shame, if you ask me about Turkish grind bands I will only name Sakatat and Subjugation. The name Rektal Tuşe was unknown to me until now. Usually, bands with the names like “anal” or “rectal” are playing shitty lo-fi pornogrind (or other garbage) but this squad chose another way. We have here a solid portion of grindcore with punk and death metal attitude. The material is honestly good and unboring, this CD also has a really nice design (I think the artist used a more classical grind approach here). Let`s switch to the music part.
From the very beginning, this album attacks you with a decent dose of pumping energy. From the opposite moments, I want to highlight a great sound and production in general. Guitar sounds pretty crusty and pleasant, the bass is mostly cluttered (but this is the usual deal). Also, guys didn`t overdo with the vocal, it sounds brutal enough. It doesn’t stand out from the line and it`s cool. But there is one small negative “oof” that I found not so pleasant. I`m talking about a few clear pieces where the drummer uses a double beat pedal with triggers. That was annoying, but it`s only my opinion and I simply don`t like the sound of a bass drum like that. But generally, everything sounds solid and heavy I even caught myself thinking that Rektal Tuşe are fans of late Rotten Sound and Jesus Ain’t In Poland, because I’ve noticed some similar structures and riffs.
Let`s summarise. We have here an interesting, heavy and fast grind album that is definitely worth listening to. So grab a beer and play this shit loud!
Remember guys, keep the underground music scene strong by supporting the artist/band/labels.
