Originally "Loathesongs" came out in 2001 on Morbid Records as a HAEMORRHAGE’s tribute to their favourite bands, so you’ve got covers from such acts as DEFECATION, CARCASS, ENTOMBED, REGURGITATE, DOOM, IMPETIGO, CRYPTIC SLAUGHTER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, IMPALED NAZARENE and even… UFO! Now I haven’t heard that original album, but on this re-release all tracks have been remastered and they added another 4 of their own to make the package more appealing to the fans. And fucking appealing it is! Of corpse, if you happen to like Goregrind of the highest order! This is basically as good as it can get – one of the best acts in the genre covers some of the best tracks written by other best bands of the genre. Talk about cream of the bloody cream! For me personally HAEMORRHAGE represent everything that is best about the Goregrind, i.e. groovy mid-tempo beats kicking yourself in the gut while being accompanied by rumbling bass lines, chunky guitar riffs and low pitchifted growls! Listening to this you just crave to sink your teeth into some fresh meat and tear it apart! My absolute favourite track on this compilation is ENTOMBED’s cover ‘Premature Autopsy’ with IMPETIGO’s ‘Staph Terrorist’ being a close second and DOOM’s ‘Police Bastards’ a third. Generally though all tracks kick some ass and 4 original tunes cement HAEMORRHAGE’s status as the leaders of Goregrind! So in case you missed the original release (or even if you didn’t), get this now and pick up their latest album "Hospital Carnage" along the way, both releases get my highest stamp of approval, hehe! Need I repeat? HAEMORRHAGE fuckin’ rules, get it now! Sick! Sick! Sick! www.everydayhate.pl
