Alright can someone please tell me where I was when Bestial Bukkake released Masculine Metal Mutilation? Did I miss the wave of praise for this album or did it simply slip under everyone’s radar? Well what matters is that I finally stumbled across this killer underground extreme metal gem.

When a band is named Bestial Bukkake your go to assumption is that you’re going to be hearing brutal death metal, goregrind or slam, but you would be wrong. What you get instead is a raw mix of black metal, death metal and war metal. This realisation gives the album art a whole different meaning, shifting from a slasher flick type feeling to that of a roaming death squad.

The album presents us with raw biting razorblade guitars that have an almost martial undertone to them at times. At other times the strike a balance between these black metal elements and a far crunchier, and dirtier death metal sound. The drum work on the album is pummeling and unrelenting, shifting between furious blast beats and slower heavier OSDM style segments. Bass wise we get a dirty, bouncy OSDM style offering that pads out the mix in parts and takes the lead in others.

Vocally the band give us a raw shrieked black metal vocal style that at times reminds me of a union of Marduk’s Legion and Mayhem’s Attila. We also get a far more guttural death metal style that’s not quite as clear to understand but adds a lot of power to the mix. There’s a third more barked style that sits between the two and while used less frequently adds some nice variety. Then you have other little touches like the occasional OUGH here and there or the killer sound bites that the band incorporates ranging from pig noises to the sound of torture.

Overall I really enjoyed this album, it was a genuinely fun listen and offers something a little more unique than a lot of the other extreme metal I’ve listened to lately. If you like incredibly brutal blackened death metal then this album will be for you.
