DAMOKIS
DAMOKIS
Grinding Mother Whore
(Grundar Production)
30:06min

During the last years, places once extremely exotic for extreme Metal bands have become more and more a standard. So I wasn't that surprised to hear about DAMOKIS, a Grindcore band from Johor in Malaysia. Starting to research, I found out that there seems to be a pretty huge scene in Malaysia for extreme music like Death and Grind. DAMOKIS must be one of the oldest bands there, since they are around since 1995 and released several splits, an EP and at least one demo. But "Grinding Mother Whore" marks their first(!) full release in this long period of time. To my surprise (and joy), DAMOKIS are neither a CARCASS - worship and -copycat, nor another Porngrind band. This four-piece is also heavily influenced by those old European Stenchcore bands from the late 1980s, like, for example, INTENSE DEGREE and FILTHY CHRISTIANS. This extra ingredient makes "Grinding Mother Whore" quite a pleasure to listen to, just like the frequent use of movie- and even comedy-samples. These samples also prove DAMOKIS to be not too serious in their intentions. Sounds like refreshing stuff? It is, even though it sometimes sound pretty outdated. But I never cared about that. Songs like the Stenchgrinder 'To Know U Is To Kill U', the title track with it's pig-squealing vocal-parts or the Funcore spiced 'Lantai Enam' are to good to get forgotten. Come on, give old fashioned Stench- and Grindcore a chance! Check: www.facebook.com/jbgrinder, or visit the label (they are focused on bands from Malaysia): www.grundar.com
