Is Macabre's "Gloom" the pinnacle of hilarious serial killer obsessed grindcore/thrash ever?

Seriously. "Holidays of Horror"! Merry Christmas/he gunned his family down/His bullets were their presents/Dead relatives all around

Too many syllables to cram into that melody and they don't care! It's fun!

"McMassacre", about James Huberty! You go to McDonald's/to eat a hamburger/Next thing you know/It's time for your murder

Who else loves and wants to praise this classic? metalheads?

Love this record. So many great tracks "Trampled To death" is a fave. I remember an old zine interview with them...
Q: How does Dennis The Menace drum so fast?

I really love their ultra-childish fixation on groan-worthy rhymes

"Dr Holmes (He Stripped Their Bones)"

"Albert Fish (Were Children Your Favorite Dish)" etc.

"What the Heck Richard Speck (eight nurses you wrecked)"

"Patrick Purdy Killed Five and Wounded Thirty"

it's like their songtitles exist as mnemonic devices for memorizing serial killer trivia

reminds me of people storing up, like, baseball batting averages or something

I won't lie I stumbled onto this band online while searching for Japanese crust band Gloom and then found this album, but I'm really glad that I did because it's awesome

and that bassline breakdown on "Trampled to Death" is sick

"McMassacre", about James Huberty!"

best huberty song is still the throwing muses one. by a mile.

This band sound amazing. Will I be disappointed if I actually listen to them?

There could be very few better ways to kill/murder/decapitate 25 minutes.
