Greek scene is a long-gone reality. Let’s not kid ourselves. There are common tastes and influences amidst the lot of crowd and musicians, that were created the way they did, with their positive and negative points, however there are people who create music from the bottoms of their hearts, giving a piece of themselves to each creation. Due to the fact that our tastes are similar, only the releases that meet certain criteria reach the ears of the listeners. You’ll ask, how on earth did these guys merge La Cucaracha with Death Metal and created ‘Buttfucked by Giant Cockroach’…? But how many in the end will appreciate the slime of the distorted voice of Necropervert, the old school American influences in the guitar of Pungent Hemorrhoid and the merciless beatings of Shit Eater we meet in Escatology? Logically, these few were fanatics of Hellhammer, Autopsy, Cianide, Abscess, Master, Massacre, Onslaught and especially the Austrian Pungent Stench Austin gods. Those who were hanging out in the basement… Sorry, that’s where porn thrived… on the mezzanine of the video clubs to rent a B horror movie from Troma or Braindead, Bad Taste and other classics like Basket Case or Re Animator. This subculture that produces cadaverine odors and vomit is praised in this 15-piece epic and several idiots will not even realize the humor it radiates. Gore has its honors, but the caustic, foolish humorous lyrics are not the strongest point of this release. And even if it seems futile for the creators of these themes to take seriously into consideration these verses, as well as the listeners, the group’s music sows everything in its way. It’s an ode at the late 80’s – early 90’s when underground met panspermia and mainly vision and gossip about music. Just one year after their demo, the result sounds… mature… extreme, like a deadly mixture of Autopsy and Pungent Stench that just cannot leave unimpressed anyone ‘problematic’ out there. While I think the concept of ‘Greek scene’ is funny because of the insignificance in the quality of those 5-6 guys that think the metal genre owes them legacies, while being simultaneously backstabbers and establishers of false relationships, at the same time I cannot fail to point out the record that the drummer of Pile Of Excrements tries to break, by trying to be involved in everything that’s being cut in this Death / Thrash scene. Recommended only for the strong ones.
