Venomous Concept - Politics Versus The Erection

 
Man - Venomous Concept are legends for a reason and this fourth record reminds us exactly why. The grindcore supergroup has returned to us at a time where it seems like we may need them most. For those not in the loop the band features the legendary Shane Embury and Danny Herrera of Napalm Death. On vocals is former Brutal Truth and SOB singer Kevin Sharpe and John Cooke of Corrupt Moral Altar (And live guitars for Napalm Death!) In an era of COVID-madness, political insurrection and seemingly neverending suffering, Venomous Concept stand tall to crack skulls, punish eardrums and remind us why grindcore started changing the world in the first place. 

There is simply so much to sink your teeth into with Politics Versus The Erection. Yes the songs remain pretty straightforward but the lyrics are as vicious as ever. On top of that, this is probably the best exemplar of both Venomous Concepts songwriting skill and has some of their best production to date. The crushing slowness of a track like 'Shadows' is really delectable too. The experimentalism of tracks like album closer 'Politics Versus The Erection' provide a wonderful counterbalance to some of the more punishing grinding madness found throughout the rest of the record. With Politics Versus The Erection Venomous Concept find a way to build on old tropes but also show they are still willing to expand their sound. 

So yeah - there aren't too many surprises here. This is exactly what you'd expect to happen with a grind supergroup featuring the guys it does. This is what the genre is all about and their raw rock fury is going to keep listeners utterly entranced. Venomous Concept largely stick to straight grind ideas but aren't afraid to explore. Ultimately - this is exactly the record that all the fans were hoping for and it is all the better because of that. This is grindcore at its finest, proving that the old gods of grind will never fail.

  1. Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with
