Sexcrement? Really? No shitty grindcore band has thought of this yet? The surprises just keep coming; surprise #2; This isn't grind. Surprise #3; this doesn't suck.

The band name, the song names, the cheap looking album cover...everything seemed lined up for one of those talentless, comedic grindcore type deals. Instead, Sexcrement play this really wretched, scrappy sounding death metal. Sloppy Seconds, despite the name, is actually really fresh sounding. It's got that stripped-down, gritty charm, but where this bands main strength lies is the way it jumps from one infectious rhythm-riff pairing to another. It's unpredictable, yet still really, really catchy. Sexcrement managed to find that nice balance between psychotic aggression and accessibility.

Don't let the presence of those rampant change-ups fool you; this is not a technical death metal album. In fact, this might just be one of the most primal sounding bands out there today. Raw and unrestrained with a distinct focus on rhythmic patterns so delightfully connectable they almost sound tribal at times.

It's all a shame really. This is a fun little band who may have left themselves out of some deserved exposure due to the goofiness of the whole package (name & image wise). It would be nice to see a band this fun and enjoyable be taken seriously as a musical entity, that probably won't happen, sadly. Fuck it, though. Sexcrement managed to come up with some imagery that properly reflects their quirkiness and D.I.Y. feel, even if it isn't the least horrendous thing on the planet.

They're from the next state over from me. Their debut is awesome though I haven't heard this one yet. Botched boob job is sooo good. Being to "sophisticated" to like this just makes you stuck up. This music is great and the humor is great, especially the samples. Its like if Goratory slowed the fuck down and Pungent stench without the shitty vocals. Groovy Death metal that isn't just a cacaphony is a rare gem and I'm glad people are actually talking about this band.
