Drug The Corpse's This Sounds Right is the perfect
destructionist release. The music is aggressive and noisy, the
cover artwork is a handmade, purposefully scrappy collage, and the
CDR's surface has been carved into with a sharp implement of some
sort. This defacement, of course, deems part of the disc skippy
and unplayable - but that's half the fun.
Whether you will like This Sounds Right depends largely on
your appreciation of the Deathbomb Arc ideology, which is largely an
avant-garde one. The sounds on this disc are occasionally
tuneful, but they are far from melodic and "catchy."
Most of the accessible moments are produced by means of repeating
guitar patterns or hardcore rhythmic blasts. And even so, the
majority of these tracks are based on noise and stray electronic
glitches. This has more in common with Britney Shears
than Britney Spears, the former of which doesn't exist.
Drug The Corpse's This Sounds Right is a must for the
true destructive no-fi noise fan. If you can dig a CDR that's
been physically designed to skip around and come apart at the end,
you'll love this impressively cataclysmic recording. If you
can't - go back to your Zager & Evans reissues.
