ed gein motherfucker 2006 demo

i had this for two years before i even thought about reviewing it for two reasons. one was i was reviewing so many other records that this one kinda slipped through. the second is i knew nothing about these guys. i got this from archive.org randomly. well my knolage has vastly improved within the last two minutes thanks to one blog (scumfeastmetal666.blogspot.com) so now i have a little bit of knolage (any bit of info would have vastly expanded my knolage) turns out they were a side project of a black metal band called zog. they were from chicago and were a three piece. sadly the band didn't last long as the drummer and guitarist died leaving bassest/vocalist marc broude the only surviving member. one of the more trajic storys of punk/metal. anyway on to the music! oh and i'm not gonna tell you who ed gein was look him up. anyway what we have is a 4 song blast of grindcore. sounds to me like it's more hardcore punk then metal kinda like early napalm death. egm sounds nothing like nd but you get the idea it's more on the punk scale. real short too (grindcore songs must never be long!) and really good production for a demo. nice lyrics and titles too. overall this is a pretty cool release but it's a shame they couldn't do more. i hope this lifts the band up out of total obscurity though with my blog that will never happen!
