DR. SHRINKER
Grotesque Wedlock
(Necroharmonic Productions)
68:39min

I'm a kind of late-comer to extreme Metal, because I started to enjoy Death and Black Metal around '94 / '95, when the good days were just over and I was too young and too poor to buy all the cult stuff of that time. Especially bands, that released only one or more demos, but no official albums simply passed me by... But fortunately there is something like reissues, where old stuff is put on a CD along with plenty information about a classic band to enable a "youngster" like me to taste the spirit of the late 80s / early 90s at least a little bit. "Grotesque Wedlock" is such a ingenious creation, it compiles the sick US-Death / Thrashers' 1989 demo "Wedding The Grotesque", their 1990 Demo "The Eponym" and the 1988 Demo "Recognition". So "Grotesque Wedlock" contains 19 raw songs, that were left completely unremastered and give an excellent impression of what makes demos so special, this bassy, uncompromising sound is simply unique. DR. SHRINKER remind me a bit of NECROPHAGIA or old SADUS sometimes, very possessed and maniacal vocals, fast thrashing riffs, pounding driving drums, well just the way it has be. Especially the twelve tracks of "Wedding The Grotesque" are absolutely fantastic, totally sickened Death / Thrash and are enough to make this CD worth buying. Only the two tracks taken from "The Eponym" are a bit weaker than the other material, but anyway, who likes to check out an ancient Death cult-band should not miss to buy "Grotesque Wedlock" and taste some original morbid sickness, that easily tops many of today's releases!!! For buying information contact the label: www.necroharmonic.com or send 12$ (Europe) or 10$ (US) to the following address: Necroharmonic Productions, PO Box 1271, Kearney, New Jersey 07032, USA
