Streptococcus Pyogenes - Hospital Of Human Degenaration (2011)
Streptococcus Pyogenes is a pathological goregrind one-man band from Athens, Greece. Musically, SxPx plays pure, old-school, raw, disgusting, chaotic, filthy and noisy goregrind, taking major influence from such early classics as Carcass, Dead Infection, Regurgitate, Last Days Of Humanity, Malignant Tumour, General Surgery, Necrony, Pathologist, Ulcerous Phlegm, etc. But the noise also compares highly to newer goregrind like, Autophagia, Dysmenorrheic Hemorrhage, Embryonic Cryptopathia, Feculent Goretomb, Lymphatic Phlegm, Oxidised Razor, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Scatologic Madness Possession, etc.
And what sets SxPx from a lot of bands in the goregrind scene is that there is tons of influence in particular from crust / hardcore, which to me is a perfect combination that brings the genre to even more pulverizing levels. Lyrically, expect advanced medical terminology with endless references to diseases and dysfunction. SxPx is absolutely one of the best goregrind bands of the current scene and of all time - which is extremely rare to say for this newer era of the genre - so enjoy some true goregrind, the way it is meant to be played! Hospital Of Human Degenaration was an E.P. that came out in 2011, limited to 100 copies on MCD, and was released by Stick Your Nose In A Garbage Bag Full Of Medical Waste Records from Greece (who is run by Nick of Streptococcus Pyogenes).
