This stuff always cracks me up. I think it’s supposed to. Goregrind monster-swallowing-the-mic death with buckshot blast drumming and off-kilter staggering guitar. Sounds pro, well-played (while I always like a little less “we just threw these random parts together and called it a song”), and less random than many, the “chorus” of “National Arrogance and the Hypocrisy of Torture” actually is a chorus, like for 30 seconds all the parts have something to do with one another! And yes, the song titles are long and “clever.” The perfect album to buy to annoy everyone around you, and the prefect album to skip if you already have one in your collection.
