Brazilian goregrind is something special, there are a few pretty famous names but many of great bands are still unknown to the rest of the world. Today I will try to fix that, ha! So here is a new band (but with old heroes) from São Paulo/Brazil. “Slum Zombie Gore” is their debut CD and I really hope they won’t stop. I think the visual side of this release is its weak spot. Zombies, so so characters, colors, and so on… I can`t say that I found it interesting or cool. BUT the music of Commando FxUxCxKx was worth my time!
Everything starts with a classic movie sample, just wait a few seconds until the music starts. The wave of rotting groove will hit you hard, haha! And once again this is a classical middle tempo gore with some tupa tupa structures, so if you`re looking for something like another LDOH clone, this is not your lucky day, haha! I think the best cherry of this CD is its low and brutal sound. Yes, it`s far away from ideal but I like how this mess sounds. All string instruments sound bulldozering and good. Drum work is also good, the farting sound of the bass drum, not cluttered cymbals, and so on. There are few types of vocals here, nothing unexpected, the growl and pitch-shifted types of vocals sound very nice. Also, you will find a few guest vocals on this record, which is a really good move, it shows you how small this world is and how friendship is important. The last track is a cover on a Regurgitate band and that is the right and last nail in the coffin of your mind!
