REVIEW: Love Sex Machine’s self-titled debut

Photobucket This album was discovered through an e-mail from Throatruiner Records, and when it stated it was an album the band were offering for free via Bandcamp, I figured it would not hurt to give it a listen. I’m glad I did.

For those who love the ultra-heavy slow grungy freak-out sludge of metal, check out this French band who call themselves Love Sex Machine. These guys play in a way that sounds like apocalyptic slaughter and survivor, combine bands like White Mice and Kowloon Walled City and you feel like you want to pull out your flesh and feed it to yourself. In truth, it’s that kind of metal that makes it feel like you’re in a world of oblivion, where instruments are tuned down significantly and the feedback is just murderous as it is heavenly.

On top of that, when you have a group who have written songs with titles like “Vagina Curse”, “Anal On Deceased Virgin”, “Killed With A Monster Cock”, and “Plenty Of Feelings” (the latter for the sensitive types even though the music is anything but gentle), one can’t help but listen to find out if they are as sick as they’re suggesting. Find out for yourself.

(NOTE: The album will be released on vinyl as a single LP in March, more details to follow when they are made available.)
