“You can sample the sound of fire or the air in the woods. But, to sample the sound of rain, that is forbidden. And the sound of bell too. Especially, if it's used on a band's first demo or album. Any band that use a bell or a rain on it's first release it's doomed to fail.”
fenriz to metal hammer gr / 2001. No.201
Well, Dirty Wombs from Patras, greece did the sin in fenriz's black book. In their latest cassette they kick off with some rain sound only to start their attacks of speedy hipper energetic tunes of good old-school hardcore. I think i have to sent him this cassette, with the note “First album, rain sample. Kicks ass”. Nice guitar works and double shouted / gravy vocals by some nice and “down to the ground” kids (consider that they call a 27 year old girl “cougar” and you'll understand why I have to call them kids).
“Eternity shore” starts with a great japanese fa(s)t and tight heavy riff (just after the rain sample) that many bands would like to have on their releases, while the rest tracks nail you to the ground. So, com'on push the PLAY button again - you fuckers - coz these guys really deserve it.
They did also the great japanese trick. They wrote some of the couples in greek and filled the choruses with English (that's clever guys...) while the majority of the English shouts have that old greek accent (αξεπέραστη ελληνική προφορά στα όρια της θέωσης). They did a great cover to Death side's “Fight your way” changing the lyrics to the greek language and added a bouzouki instead of a piano. Goat followers, tzatziki eaters and larissa locals take care (η αλλιώς “η προβατίλα μυρίζει από μακρυά”). Fans of japanese – burning spirits style – hardcore check these malakes coz many bands would like to have this sound and most of all, many bands would like to have so good compositions. If you like bands like D.S.B, Crude, Death side and the rest in your face doomed hardcore punk legends these dudes doing it great filtering it, in their own unique style. Arigato...
P.S. Ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ, στον ντίνο και τον βάιο από dirty wombs που μας άνοιξαν το σπιτικό τους, μας σήκωσαν στον αέρα για να κάνουμε crowd surfing με χίλιες δυο βλακείες για soundtrack, μας σκλάβωσαν με τα καθαρά χαμόγελα τους και μας έδειξαν τα κατατόπια σε ένα πραγματικά απολαυστικό σαββατοκύριακο για όλους εμάς που δραπετεύσαμε για λίγο απ'τα νυχιά της μητρόπολης.
