In Snakes I Bathe are a small grind project focused entirely on being a belligerent jokester in the metal scene. A lot of their songs are ugly and focused on just shitting on certain individuals/groups. They appeared on an Anal Cunt/Seth Putnam tribute album, so there you go. Regardless, this random single, i know that you're leaving, you must have your reasons is a weirdly emotive detour from the usual nastiness. I actually like this quite a bit, despite the absolute lack of anything else going on. I dig the subtle delay, the melancholic progression, the minimalist approach. Makes me think that this has real pain/sadness in it. Like whoever's behind ISIB went through something heartbreaking and composed this in the wake. Or maybe it's a really elaborate troll, and I just got duped into praising something by this anonymous doofus. You never can tell.
