Rocking Metal Motherfucker
(From Beyond Productions / Displeased Records)
Tora! Tora! Tora! This is already the second shabu - fueled kamikaze attack of the ABIGAIL side project BARBATOS (which also features a japanese WW II fighter plane in its logo, by the way) lead by - yes, main man Barbatos. For the porpose of recording this slab of dirty 1 - 2 - 3 - GO! Metal / Punk he has been helped by friends from the Japanese Black / Death Metal scene who did quite a good job capturing a beer smelling "Fuck Off!" attitude spreading a rocking MOTÖRHEAD / VENOM - ish feeling. The topics of the lyrics which have been cotributed by members of DECAYED, BLASPHEMY, BESTIAL MOCKERY and others cover the eternal classics: war and sex, hehe. This is also reflected by the layout of the booklet which shows pictures of young "ladies" opening their mouths wide for the final cumshot ("One Shot! One Kill!", so to say) blended together with photographs from WW II. So, if you are a "Rocking Metal Motherfucker" and enjoy the likes of SCEPTER (is the resemblance between the title of this record and the latest offering of the Chigaco - sickos just coincidence?), ROK, or GEHENNAH grab yourself a 'Satanik Beer', 'Drink Till Death', watch an 'Erotic Dancer', preferably a 'Red Leather Bitch' - but 'Blonde And Bitch' would also do - and go for 'Hot Sex!'. So, this is surely nothing for people overly concerned with aesthetics or philosophy but for intoxicated fiends, got that?! I have to confess: My 'Dick Is Fucking Big', 'I Love To Eat Pussy' and I really enjoyed this dose of 'Sexual Alcohol Metal'! BARBATOS email contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
