"Speedcore's vilest returns on the heels of his skull-scrambling album Planetary Evacuation Recruitment Tape on Unearthed with this three-track 7" on UK gabbergrind / speedcore imprint Legs Akimbo. This project continues to spew out some of the sickest speedcore coming out of this particular perverted corner of the electronic underground, fusing together brutal Bloody Fist-style techno-violence with his bizarre CGI visuals (similar to those featured in the surrealist animated splatterfest Where The Dead Go To Die that this guy directed) and disgusting subject matter that could've been lifted from the album lyrics for the most extreme death metal band. This ain't dance music, that's for sure.
The a-side has "Shallow Jungle Pools", opening with a long ominous spoken word intro over bleak black ambience before blasting into the pounding hardcore techno that takes over the track, the jackhammer kicks pounding relentlessly beneath howling metallic drones, nightmarish samples, blats of violent glitch and strange creaking noises. Compared to a lot of Screamerclauz's stuff, this is positively ambient at times, but there's plenty of distorted , fucked-up speedbeat destruction delivered at 500 bpm levels of aggression squeezed into this track, as you would hope.
The other side starts with "PPDSPEMFOBBT", a more chaotic speedcore track laced with those signature evil carnival synths, slurred pitch-shifted vocal samples and some seriously vicious hyper-speed grindblasts slipped into the pounding artillery pulse; its followed by "Corpse Sexing"'s weird hoovering synths and manic-attack kicks, which shift in and out of that pummeling techno pummel and savage skittering breaks.
For those into the blood-n'-vomit soaked middle region between the Nasenbluten / Bloody Fist camp and the nihilistic speedcore/grind mutations found on Grindcore Karaoke" - Crucial Blast
