I'd Hit That! - 100%

Written based on this version: 2019, CD, Maggot Stomp (Digipak)

Maggot Stomp records popped up some interesting bands since their two-year inception. What caught my attention the most is this bizarre, brutal, and bamboozling name of Sanguisugabogg, with their demo Pornographic Seizures. This sounds like what pornogrind should’ve sounded; ridiculously fun and fresh. That weird album cover also speaks volumes with its serving monsters and the fitting red background, despite my dislike towards the used font for the album’s name, which doesn’t fit.

The first two songs sound like a whole song. You won’t really notice the transition between them. But for being about 1:30 minutes each, they’re brutal! This band was able to write enough substance for just two short songs, and that’s already an impressive beginning. Moving on to the last two and longest songs, Perverse/Deranged immediately became my favorite song from this demo. I liked the unpredictable simple drums beat intro, when you’d figure the intros for each song would be instead explosive as usual. So you got the opposite. The vocalist resembles Frank Mullen of Suffocation, especially during the bridge/breakdown, only slower and heavier. Succulent Decedent is catchier with more substance, when it comes to the guitars and the song’s structure.

I didn’t expect to enjoy this. The band definitely won themselves a new fan - and this might be the first newest band that I actually liked. I can’t wait to see what they’ll offer in their upcoming debut album or whatever small releases they might put out instead, but Pornographic Seizures will do in the meantime. Musically engaging and exciting, which is a shame some people had the wrong impression.
