Hymen Holocaust - Necromance Review
2006 seems to be the year for Dutch gore. Following No Escape Records' release of the acclaimed Dutch gore/grind outfit Bile's Camp Blood, and preceding the same groups re-release of cult classic The Shed comes Hymen Holocaust's Necromance. Hymen Holocaust is the L.D.O.H. influenced side-project of Marice, the drummer from Clit Eater (who themselves play killer grind infused with humour and gore).
The album is marked by a sickeningly downtuned and distorted bass guitar, simple riffing, pummelling double bass and unintelligible but somewhat varied pitch-shifted vocals, kept interesting by the occasional groove and spates of humour. The humour is actually what kept me slightly interested - take the lyrics of Sick Pervert: I fill your c*nt with snakes and eels / you just don't know how good that feels / you're a slave, I'm your master / I am a horny f*ckin' bastard.
While this did interest me a tad more than Bile, it's still far from my cup of tea. If you like this kind of stuff you'll probably adore it. I don't. With three reportedly brilliant grind/gore releases, No Escape seems to be on a role.
