Sweden’s Bestial Mockery have been together since 1995 and EVOKE THE DESECRATOR is their first major label release. The band plays a mix of black/death/thrash similar to early Venom or Bathory, but with better production. The band seems to adhere to the “less is more” theory, as the whole CD is less than 30 minutes in length. This is also the first time I’ve heard a chainsaw used as an instrument since Jackyl’s “The Lumberjack”!! These guys have filled their songs with preposterous lyrics that are so vile and offensive that it is impossible not to laugh. What is most important, though, is that the songs are structured so that we are not laughing AT them, but laughing WITH them. Do NOT take this band seriously!
Vocalist Master Motorsag opens the CD with a chainsaw solo (that’s right…a chainsaw solo) on “Chainsaw Demons Return.” I absolutely LOVE this song!! There is a great guitar solo followed by a thrashy breakdown and the poetic lyric: “Fucked with a bloody chainsaw.” LOVE IT! The chainsaw makes another dramatic appearance on the brutal “Flash From A Razor,” which contains the classic line, “Fall on your knees and pray to your God/With my erection in your ass, where is he now?” This track is reminiscent of early Venom with its black metal imagery and Motorsag channeling Cronos’ vocal style. “Necroslut” has its moments on a frenzied middle section with shredding and a distorted lead vocal that growls, “Open your cunt, necroslut….suck my cum, eat my dick and fucking like it.”
Bestial Mockery’s bio reads “Black death thrash played by White trash!” I can’t argue with that synopsis! EVOKE THE DESECRATOR is violent, crude, misogynistic, ugly and unrefined…and I get the feeling Bestial Mockery wouldn’t have it any other way.
KILLER KUTS: “Chainsaw Demons Return,” “Flash From A Razor,” “Necroslut”
