Album Review: Putrid Offal – Sicknesses Obsessions (XENOKORP)

In it for nearly three decades, Putrid Offal have always been a one-of-a-kind band amongst the gore Death / Grind scene. Incorporating Gregorian chants and keyboards into their swarming mass of infected aural virulency ever since their cult 1991 split with Exulceration and, even though it took them 25 years, their successful 2015 debut, “Mature Necropsy” proved it once more.

Whereas “Mature Necropsy” was a rewritten re-recording of all of their ’90s material, their new album “Sicknesses Obsessions” is all new material. Out on September 11th 2020 via Xenokorp!

Sickness is the right word to describe what Putrid Offal spit out on their brand-new album. A sickness born decades ago but one that has only gotten stronger and more pungent as time as gone by.

With manic energy, savage intentions and a willingness to prove that they still hold relevancy, Putrid Offal allow their stink to permeate throughout the mind. Infecting the senses with their crushing take on gore/grind and death metal. 15 snappy tracks fired out at a non-stop and unforgiving pace. The goal is to wreck the mind and on that front Putrid Offal more than deliver.

That being said, there’s nothing new going on here. It’s a rotting and festering corpse made to stand up and dance to their whim. Bits might be falling off and the bile might be rising in the stomach but that doesn’t stop it being so entertaining in a morbid way.
