Maniacal Miscreation Reviews

Earache Records reissues UK's Cerebral Bore's debut full length album, Maniacal Miscreation shortly after its original release on GrindScene Records, and it is easy to see the reason behind the reissue.

The band begins their aural onslaught with Epileptic Strobe Entrapment, and the song title tells all about the madness that is about to come. The constant shifts in time signature are common fare in Cerebral Bore's music, displaying the ability of each of the instrumentalists as they shift between tempos with ease. Simone's vocals (holy fuck, and I didn't even realise that she was a female until I read the band bio, fucking salute!) vary from a deep and hollow growl to a high-pitched pig squeal, not unlike most grindcore bands, and constantly impresses the listeners with the variety of techniques utilised.

The Bald Cadaver is perhaps the song that summarises what Cerebral Bore is all about: brutality, technicality intertwined with slick riffs and topped off with all kinds of distorted death/grind vocals imaginable. The seemingly random notes plucked by bassist Kyle on 1:35-1:36 is reminiscent of technical death metal band Defiled, and this will not be the only instance such tricks are pulled off, such as on 2:11 onwards, with an "extended" version. The quirky play on the cymbals by drummer Allan on 2:26 adds an interesting touch to the music, and keeps the listener on a tight suspense before the band carries on with their chaos.

On top of the flamboyant drumming style (I mean it in a good way, mind you) of Allan, the other thing that caught my attention was the playing style of bassist Kyle. Besides the few moments on The Bald Cadaver, later songs dedicate more air time to him to display his technical brilliance, such as on Entombed in Butchered Bodies, where the low end growl of the bass can constantly be heard backing up the guitar riffs, on top of the time given for him for short and groovy solo segments.

Of course, the band doesn't forget to inject that element of fun into their madness. There are moments of fun with the catchy chorus on Entombed in Butchered Bodies, but that is not all. While most of the songs deal with gore and violence, the closing track 24 Year Party Dungeon displays the band's idea of fun (with less gore and morbid themes), with tongue-in-cheek lyrics such as "She'll see, his evil pee-pee" on the chorus.

The hyper speed that Cerebral Bore utilises makes the band seem as if they were in a constant rush, and Maniacal Miscreation certainly provides a good fix for those adrenaline-starved junkies.

고소우 누나의 아성을 넘는 누님들이 꽤 있다. Cerebral Bore의 보컬 분도 그 중 하나. 보컬이 여자인 거 알고 무지 깜놀했다. 더군다나 음악도 브루털하게 조진다. ㅎㄷㄷ
