I saw a girl fly through the sky.....and I looked up her skirt.

Okay, I'm inadvertantly continuing my "Soundtracks that Rock!" theme. Today we have (and by "we have" I mean "I have") Gummo. I think this one really counts more as a "soundtrack that makes you want to bang your head against the wall and smash things" type thing here, but either way. The soundtrack for this demented trash-art film has bands like Absu, Mortician, Sleep, Bathory, Eyehategod and of course Mischa Maisky with Suite No.2 For Solo Cello In D Minor-Prelude.
Mortician is a band that's always frustrated me. The sample parts are really all they have going for them. In fact their last album had more sample than actual music. But with a little effort they could be much better. I always thought they should lose some of the really fast parts, and focus on more on the occasional groove they hit upon because honestly those "blast" parts or whatever all sound exactly the same to me. Maybe they should even tune the guitars up a bit, low is good, but this is like scary low. It's ridiculous. Anyway, this is not a "What's wrong with Mortician" post, so here's your tracklist:

1. The Gold Torques Of Ulaid - Absu
2. Serving Time In The Middle Of Nowhere - Eyehategod
3. D.W.S.O.B. - Electric Hellfire Club
4. Gummo Love Theme - Spazz
5. Schuld Uns'res Knoch'rigen Faltpferd - Bethlehem
6. Rundgang um die transzendentale Saule - Burzum
7. Equimanthorn - Bathory
8. Smokin' Husks - Dark Noerd
9. Dragonaut - Sleep
10. Matando Gueros 97 - Brujeria
11. The Medicined Man - Namamax
12. Hellish Blasphemy - Nifelheim
13. Skin Peeler - Mortician
14. Give The Human Devil His Due - Mystifier
15. Mom's And Dad's Pussy - Destroy All Monsters
16. Verschierte Irrelgiositat - Bethlehem
17. Suite No.2 For Solo Cello In D Minor-Prelude - Mischa Maisky
18. Some Grass - Sleep
19. Jesus Loves Me - Rose Shepherd, Ellen M. Smith

But really, Mortician, if you're out there, more groove, dammit.

If that's your opinion of Mortician, you should try Bloodduster. "Fisting the Dead", "Yeest" or "Str8 Outta Northcote".

For some reason I've never really given Bloodduster a shot. I've heard a random song here and there, but never really went looking for anything. Might've been something to do with the album cover for Yeest actually making me sick anytime I saw it. I hate those real corpse album covers. If there's less blasting noise and more groove I'll give them a shot. Thanks for the recommendation.
