Gore Beyond Necropsy - _Noise-A-Go Go!!!_
(Relapse, 1998)
by: Paul Schwarz (1 out of 10)
Well, that was short. I can think of little else "positive" to say about this MCD. Gore Beyond Necropsy fall into a category I regard as "white-noise grindcore". They use basic three chord structures and, through the use of a drum machine, quickly make the jump to hyperspeed and incomprehensibility in every one of their compositions. GBN paint their album a slightly less dull shade of grey by peppering various samples throughout the album's course, which are somewhat more captivating than the "music" itself. Apart from the dull music, the reason I dislike this disc, and it scores -so- low, is that it is only 24 minutes long. When the inlay shows 59 tracks, a buyer might expect even an EP to be longer than this is and buy it with this in mind. I once jammed with two of my friends (drummer and bassist/vocalist); we had virtually no experience, questionable talent and little time, but I can honestly say we made music of about this standard, and we didn't even cheat and use a drum machine.
