To Separate The Flesh From The Bones
May 2004
Released: 2004, Spikefarm Records
Rating: 3.9/5
Reviewer: Luxi Lahtinen

Are you into totally mindless, crushing, murderous, filthy and rotten Grindcore? Then look no further as this Finnish 3-piece genital grinders under this lovely and ´highly original´ (!) name To Separate the Flesh from the Bones, are fully in your service. I don´t know whether it´s any secret or not, but the band actually features Pasi Koskinen (as “Herr Arschstein”) and Niclas Etelävuori (as “Rot Wailer”) from Amorphis and Kaasu (as “Pus Sypope”) from H.I.M.. Now feel free to execute me as the truth has been revealed...

However, the band´s musical concept for T.S.T.F.F.T.B. is actually dead-simple: To sound like bands like Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Repulsion and Extreme Noise Terror (and such) did in their early prime. The band´s main fascination, according to the song titles at least, is heavily based on all things gore, pus, genitals, etc. that apparently more than clearly, has been made by ´tongue-in-cheek´ vein. “Genital Massacre”? “Chainsaw Fuck”?! No, I don´t think you can possibly go wrong with such titles as far as their seriousness is concerned...

Every song on this 10-track debut-EP of these chainsaw grinders, is about 1 minutes long and the album lasts less than 10 minutes, so prepare to get your ears fistfucked ruthlessly from the very start to the very end without interruptions ´til your ears bleed to the very last drop. The bastards do it as marvelously and gently as it´s actually possible to do in the first place. Too bad it´s over before you even realize...

A very well welcomed breath amongst the Finnish extreme metal scene and it´s really healthy to see Spikefarm Records widening their catalogue toward Grindcore acts, too (and for that matter, Spinefarm signing Rotten Sound as well almost recently!).
