I love the instrumentation and the title is fucking hilarious. I just wish I could understand the lyrics better. I found a website but even with that I thought it was hard to follow (though there are hilarious bits). I'm not used to that gurgling vocal style but I like how it sounds.I heard this one on a metal podcast I listen to, the podcast-ers had the great pleasure of seeing this band perform live at a festival in Finland, and apparently they are a genuinely enjoyable band to see. My tastes tend to be more old-school and thrash but this band has some weird tracks and I always love weird.
Here is the podcast by the way, ran by people I know IRL who do a lot for the local metal scene. Mention of Cumbeast is in episode 6. https://hailyourselfzine.com/podcast/
Hot take: Black Sabbath's first true Metal album was Paranoid. The self-titled debut was Hard Rock through and through. The term "Heavy Metal" was first used to describe Sir Lord Baltimore's debut LP Kingdom Come, but even that isn't quite Metal despite it being an important influence. Another annoying tendency is to term Black Sabbath as a fully fledged Doom band when only Vol. 4 is their doomiest, but since I've elaborated upon this point before, I won't repeat myself.On this very day, exactly Fifty years ago, Metal as we know it was born with the release of Black Sabbath's first album
In this single album lie the thematic, structural, and lyrical seeds of not just metal as a whole or the eventual NWOBHM but a slew of subgenres, from the technical skeleton of Doom Metal to the fantasy themes of Power Metal to the satanic references of Black Metal to name just a few.
While it may not be as heavy as its successors or as extreme as those it would inspire, it is still one of the finest albums in music history and well worth the praise it has received this past half century
Yeah I'm really digging this. Goregrind/Slam type music sounds much better with a death metal production/mixing style. Call me old fashioned, but it's easier to bang your head when you can hear what the fuck is going on.I love the instrumentation and the title is fucking hilarious.
