Today I’m reviewing Cancerous Womb‘s Born of a Cancerous Womb (which has a song called Born of a Cancerous Womb in it)  and just by now I’ve had enough alliterations, thank you.

As it can be expected from the song titles (Up to my Nuts in Guts, Grind Tear & Slice, Torn from Gunt to Cunt…) and my quick metal archives research, the song lyrics revolve around guts, sexual assault, gore, death and other slightly revolting themes, like paedophiles – was one of the members a Lost Prophets fan?. The lyrics are plagued with graphic descriptions of cutting someone open and moving gigantic fat flaps, masturbating to little children and even makes a reference to those news of this woman in Austria trapped in her fathers basement having his incest kids, meaning: what you would expect. I do have to give them mega-props for using the line “more chins than a Chinese phone book” in one of the songs. I laughed so hard I freaked out the people around me.

Music wise this was far more melodic than I expected to be. The larger part of the “gory”  bands I’ve listened to lately lack all sense of melody. The less melody the bigger your testicles, right? But Cancerus Womb achieves a sound almost (if I may say) Terrorizer sounding: just the right amount of melody in there to make the music worth listening to. I have no issues with comparing these guys to such music giants.

Even though I lost the taste for this kind of music years ago, today I find myself recovering my mix CD’s and listening to those senseless 24 second songs about chainsaw murderers. Cancerous Womb made a more than decent album, worth listening to, with lyrics that may go around the predictable but still fun to listen to.

4/5
