BLACK FUCKING CANCER 

“Black Fucking Cancer”

By Dr. Abner Mality

OK, you know what you’re in for when you pick up something by a band called Black Fucking Cancer and I can report that you get it in spades. Scathing musical misanthropy that is like having a stiff wire brush caress your exposed brain. So BFC delivers this musical hate…

But how do they do it? Well, the album is nasty  but the sound is way more professional than I was expecting. No “necro” bullshit or poorly produced crap here…this was a top notch job. As for the BFC style, they mix things up. Of course, black metal is the bulk of their attack, but it’s a kind of black metal rooted in classic thrash. “A Sigil of Burning Flesh” and “Wall of Corpses” are about sick speed and tortured vocals. “Blood Stained Whore” is the most bruising, powerful cut…a punishing mix of black, death and thrash. But there’s also a noisy,dissonant side of the band that tries to be epic. “Acid Ocean” starts with that blackened thrash, but diverges into lengthy passages of noisy guitar hellscapes. This track is more than 12 minutes long and it really wears out its welcome. “SinnRitualVoid” follows this formula in reverse…it starts with five minutes of formless cacophony before mutating into a faster, more coherent form. Too much time wasted!

These super hateful albums tend to exhaust me to the point of not caring. Black Fucking Cancer is every bit as evil as their name indicates and they have some extremely potent moments here, but there’s also a lot of fat that needs to be trimmed.
