Vomitorial Corpulence - Skin Stripper (2002)
Vomitorial Corpulence is a goregrind band from Melbourne, Australia. They were one of the few existent goregrind bands out there whose lyrics and themes exclusively centered on christianity. Quite a strange and unfitting mix if you ask me - even though the band argues otherwise on their website - but lyrics aside, unless of course you're down with jesus, VxCx plays some absolutely relenting and vicious old-style goregrind. There's almost a strange violent bounciness to their noise, maybe because of the excessive d-beating and crusty parts - although there's no shortage of savage blasting either. Even though VxCx takes much obvious influence from the classics, like Dead Infection, Regurgitate, Haemorrhage, Necrony or even Impetigo, they've really got a unique and heavily punk influenced sound all their own that is quite phenomenal. Skin Stripper was the first full-length CD the band put out.
