Let me start off by asking a simple question. Who doesn’t love Satan and sluts? I’m pretty positive everyone does, even the most conservative people have to love Satan and sluts just a little. And what do you get when you mix the two together? You get Flesh SS. Flesh SS are a brand new band from Los Angeles, California that play some black metal infused with punk. These guys are the guys that you listen to when you want to destroy some shit and cause as much chaos as possible.
To say that they are black metal infused with punk or the other way around is putting it kind of mildly. You get the idea that they are furious bordering on the side of insane, but to describe it a little better they are more like controlled chaos put on four tracks.
The fusion of black metal and punk creates an interesting sound to say the least. Both punk and black metal are fiery and completely all over the place as far as style goes. So the sound that you would be subjecting yourself to is a complete onslaught of just headbanging metallic madness.
Flesh SS do a great job of sticking with the, “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that made punk so popular all while infusing a genre such as black metal to create a completely raw sounding soundtrack to armageddon.
The songs are short of course, but blast you right out of your seat from the very beginning. As you sit there on the floor stunned and baffled by the sonic assault you just witnessed in the first couple of seconds of music, they keep coming and pummel you more.
Sanguine Sodomy is fueled by frenetic riffs that are accompanied by face and skin shredding guitar solos. The songs rip and tear flailing around like a trapped alligator in a gator net. While the rest of the music is flaying your flesh the vocalist adds his own filthy touch the music. When the vocals come over they sound like a tortured animal was recorded and put over the music. And while that is not true it adds another element of chaos to the music. The shrieks, yells and screams coupled with the hyper activity and pure aggression of the music being played behind him it makes for a cacophony of insanity.
The concoction that is black metal and punk works well and the different styles feed off of one another. The noisier the better, the faster the better, the more blasphemous the better. So, if you love yourself some sluts and Satan then Flesh SS is for you. If you also just like to headbang and have a good time listening to chaotic music, then Flesh SS is also right up your alley.
