Anal Vomit - Peste Negra, Muerta Negra

Anal Vomit
Peste Negra, Muerta Negra
by Jacob Dawson at 01 June 2015, 4:25 PM

It doesn’t take a genius to see that ANAL VOMIT’s choice of band name, as well as the style of their album cover is intended to shock and provoke an immediate, gut-response. I think it’s fair to say that both are pretty effective, with the band name being suitably disgusting and the album cover being a pretty accurate depiction of said band name. A lot of the time with cases like this, the provocative nature of a band may be an attempt to make up for shortcomings in other areas, or to give them a rebellious image for the audience to latch onto and enjoy, even when the music sucks. Fortunately that isn’t the case here, and ANAL VOMIT spews out anything but (see what I did there?).

One thing that should be kept in mind however is that the lyrical content of the album is totally lost on me, as I have no knowledge of the language that the Peruvian band use. Because of this, what any of the songs are about is completely unknown to me and I can comment only on the musical quality. Fortunately there is a good amount of this present.

One thing that stands out as an impressive part of the release is undoubtedly the drums, performed fantastically by Joe Hoyle. They’re switched up on a regular basis to keep from becoming stale, and are timed beautifully with the frenzied guitars. The band prove themselves skilled at transitioning to heavy, weightier sections in a number of tracks, including the very first track “Brebaje de Muerte” which ends with a catchy riff at a lower tempo than the rest of the song.

One of the band’s gimmicks stand out in particular, in the form of the third track “Obsessive Sexual Slaughter”, which, while a decent track in its own right, ends to the sound of lots of female sexual sounds. The climactic ending serves as another provocative part of the band’s arsenal, but if nothing else is at least fairly unique.

The album on the whole contains some genuinely impressive guitar work, with “Dios Muerte” in particular springing to mind as an example. The vocals, while not really timed with the music, sound relevant and suitable to the music despite the language barrier, and Milo Possessor doesn’t lay them on too thickly so they never really become annoying.  If there’s any more criticism to be made it’s with the album’s production, which while not especially bad, could certainly have more depth to it as the guitars can sound quite grainy at times. It’s not too noticeable so doesn’t plague the release, but could perhaps have been better.

The album’s title roughly translates to “Black Metal, Black Metal”, and fans of such music will certainly be pleased with what’s here. It is unlikely to bridge the gap between Black Metal and other genres of music, but with a name like ANAL VOMIT it’s hardly surprising that appeasing the masses isn’t on their agenda.
