Bavaria, area of Blasmusik, Oktoberfest and Weisswurst. That is the common stereotype and to a certain extend it is true. There is another musical force though in Bavaria, connected to metal. One of these underground bands from Germany’s south-east is Feaces Christ from Regensburg.
Feaces Christ, that is A., C. and D.. The trio started in 2018 and has two demos under their belt. The full-length debut follows these days and is entitled ‘Gimme Morgue!’. Checking the moniker on the cover artwork highlights the ‘A’ for anarchy and the upside down cross. Maybe be purpose or just because it looks cool, I don’t know the intention. Still both aspects fit the music of the Bavarian trio very well. There is the aggression of Swedish-inspired death metal and the anarchic power of punk that unites on this longplayer. Deep growls, simple riffs and giant power is what challenges speakers and ears.
Feaces Christ strip down their songs to the minimum which means a running time that balances at two minutes. The closer ‘Embalmed in Vomit’ is the exception. Kept slower and focusing more on the death metal roots, the closing track is certainly a song shows the potential of this anti-mainstream band.
Lyrics are not big poetry, a fact nobody seriously expected. Instead, song titles like ‘Rest in Piss’, ‘Menstrual Cup’ and ‘Bar Fight’ speak for themselves.
‘Gimme Morgue!’ is an album that isn’t tied to any popular sounds and commercial streamline. This longplayer mirrors the unbound freedom of underground metal. Not more, but also not less.
