LORDS OF BUKKAKE (Desorden Y Rencor) CD

There have been times when my interest in sludge decreased rapidly resulting from the musical stagnation in that genre. I was bored by all the Grief, EyeHateGod and Buzzov-en clones, and it seemed to me that there were only a very few bands around who manage to add something new to the existing formula. But in recent times my picture of the stagnating sludge genre gets more and more cracks. One reason for this is the second album, 'Desorden Y Rencor' from Spanish trio LORDS OF BUKKAKE. Of course, the wheel will not be re-invented by these guys, but the way in which they combine the different elements is definitely very inspiring. That's why this group is almost like a revelation to me.

In contrast to many other sludge bands, LORDS OF BUKKAKE have a weakness for harsh noise what certainly is because of vocalist/bassist Toni L. Querol, because he is also involved in the harsh noise project Sons Of Bronson. Anyone who doesn't like that sort of music should give nevertheless this band a chance, because bulldozing guitar riffs are in the centre of all four tracks. Not surprisingly, the songs range in length from 7:41 to 11:47 minutes so that the entire playing time is approximately 40 minutes. Besides the noise, there are a couple of shifting dynamics, which make sure that 'Desorden Y Rencor' does not become too one-dimensional. Personally I like the contrast between clear and brute guitar parts, but don't worry; there is no "post-rock" influence in the songs. Opener 'Llagas' begins with jarring, psychotic screams and a lot of noise that seem intent on haunting dreams for months to come. This is followed by a resounding bass line and by a strange reverb-soaked guitar part, but that is only the quiet before the storm. Suddenly, there is a meaty, pounding main riff that is about as distorted as you can get. Bri Doom of Lazarus Blackstar gets an extra praise, because has has mastered the album at studio 1in12. Due to this fact, the crispy production is not only extremely powerful but also filthy at its best.

Additionally, LORDS OF BUKKAKE are quite good at creating a surreal feel, particularly when guitarist Toni L. Querol starts his adventurous solo excursions. 'Magia Necia' is a good example of this where a sparse bit of psychedelia is tossed into the mix. But apart from the general sonic discomfort of 'Desorden Y Rencor', there also is a thunderous groove in some places that bulldozes over everything in its path. It is evident, that LORDS OF BUKKAKE have integrated a slice of 1970s rock into their monstrous, hate-filled sound, but I am also sure that they like Saint Vitus and Sleep ('Alucarda'). Cutting to the chase, 'Desorden Y Rencor' is absolutely essential listening for all connoisseurs of unsettling heavy music.
