‘The Bunty Man’ is the debut album from the Sheffield-based British deathcore band Necrogrinder. It is the follow up to their 2010 EP ‘Mangled Fetus Insertion’.

Now, let’s face it; with a name like Necrogrinder and songs titles such as Chainsaw Brainsore, you can pretty much guess what type of music you’re in for. This could go one of two ways: it’s either going to be some brutal, Cannibal Corpse-esque death metal or death/grindcore. Well, this is definitely the latter and according to their official biography, Necrogrinder’s music is likely to appeal to fans of Gorerotted and Cock & Ball Torture.

If it’s “brutality” and guttural vocals you’re after then this album has those elements in abundance. The songs don’t tend to differ much from each other. They all follow a similar formula of croaking/squealing vocals, blast beat style drumming and fast, down tuned, grindcore style guitar riffage. Creepy Crawly is an exception that makes the rule, as it features the Machine Head style high pitched guitar riffs and even an attempt at a solo. At least some variety, though not quite enough to redeem the album.

Then there’s the aforementioned Chainsaw Brainsore, the shortest track on the album offering less than two minutes of pummeling and guttural vocals. You deserve a medal if you can actually make out a single word this guy is uttering.

2/5
