Foetal Juice
Masters Of Absurdity
by Craig “Thrashing” Rider at 14 April 2017, 10:32 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: FOETAL JUICE; signed independently, hailing from England - performing Death Metal, on their debut album entitled “Masters of Abusrdity”. (Released December 2nd, 2016)

Since formation in 2005; the quintet in question have multiple Demos, EPs & Splits behind them, I'm introduced to their debut creation “Masters of Absurdity”. Ah, British soil Death Metal! Guttural mayhem embossed here; gore and murder infused vehemence abound. 10 tracks of proficient Death Metal greats like CANNIBAL CORPSEMORBID ANGEL & SUFFOCATION influence FOETAL JUICE. Ranging at around 34:42; the quartet showcase prominence to the chosen sub-genre of their taste. Opening up the album with short but sweet tracks “Dutch Oven”, “Phantom Visions” & “Noneckahedron” deliver heavy-hitting instrumentation and musicianship elegantly. Already; I am filled with an enticing punch line of fierce pummeling of profuse excellence. Generating a well-executed groove that showcases exquisite yet powerful enlightenment that will guarantee your ever so needed fix to feel 100% brutal.

Consisting of Ryan Whittaker on guitar who showcases complex dexterity that will have you reeling at the galloping ferocity in which leads up to magnificent songwriting and a fulfilling sound production to boot, contributing divinely to the sub-genre. Sam Read on vocals effectively growls and grunts away with adapt efficiency and has a distinctly organic flair to it. The powerhouse from Rob Harris on drums pummels his set with harmonic, rhythmic adroitness, and excels diligently as the record progresses. “Leachate King”, “Brutal Tooth” & “Gin'll Fix It” provide unprecedented aggressiveness, sharing a moody atmosphere of harsh complexity and embodiment. Bassist Ben Read also contributes with grace towards the sound and enrages your soul with destructibility in mind. FOETAL JUICE raise the bar with hard-pressed headbanging intensity; flourishing with an original aesthetic and sufficient amount of uniquely formulated substances with systematics.

Grave Denied” & “Booze Locust” had me enjoying a crushing display of showmanship with profusely equipped construction; as a Death Metal fan of the aforementioned bands and more, I am compelled to say that FOETAL JUICE have recruited themselves a new fan. Concluding tracks “Nun So Vile” & “More Hate, More Hell” overall had me entertained with this solid slab of immense Death Metal. Easily repeated; you should check it out via their Bandcamp nonetheless.
