Hola boys and girls today I want to talk about the last EP of Mexican grinders Fecalizer. This band is not new at all, the guys have almost 20 years of experience, but they are still not very known in the rest of the world. Guys are playing lo-fi goregrind with many nasty themes (but what would you expect from a band with such name? ;)). This new work is something like a step aside from classical gore guts/blood/corpses things. Not sure if all of you know but “Wendigo” is a mystical/mythological creature from Indians folklore (North American Indians). And all of this is about cannibalism, the devouring of the spirit, and human transformation. Lovely isn`t it?)
Honestly, I listened to this 7″ about 4 times, in purpose to dig all its moments but even this new stuff didn’t convince me. I don`t want to hurt anyone but Fecalizer is still paying a slow mix of gore and death metal. But let`s go in order… This recording session has an interesting heavy sound with some raw notes. The instruments sound good too, same with the vocal. Also, there are some nice riffs here and there, but the tempo is deadly slow so even groove parts with tupa tupa beats sound not cheerful and blank. My favorite track here is the first half of “We Are The Real America”.
I bet there are a lot of people who will love this noise, but “Wendigo” is not my cup of tea…
