PLOW BARREL


The things you find, man....I don't even know where to begin. Well, start with the outside - someone in a band thought that was a good cover for their demo...and the other band members agreed. Or acquiesced, but still. But if it's any consolation, the outside is a pretty good indication of the cerebral profanity that greets you when you press play. Like AGOROPHOBIC NOSEBLEED and ASS (link is dead, your loss), and then there's the epic misanthropic doom of "Pinch My Beef." I mean, it kinda makes sense when you look closer and see that Bloated Beyond Blasphemy was recording in Apple Valley, Minnesota in 1993. I'm not exactly sure why that gives PLOW BARREL the appropriate context, but somehow it does.  Ripping drum machine driven death/thrash metal in the CARCASS, CANNIBAL CORPSE vein, treated with adolescent isolation and copious amounts of weed.
