This is sick, sick music and I like it. Brazilian goregrind band Lymphatic Phlegm does definitely not sound like the common purveyors of the genre. The music of Lymphatic Phlegm do of course centre on gory pathological imagery a la Carcass and the Brazilians also have those super deep gurgling vocals that most other bands in the genre do, but this is more or less where the similarities stop. The music on Show-off Cadavers - The Anatomy of Self Display has an almost epic vibe to it and added the disturbing samples that are occasionally used; it gives the music an eerie feel. The samples are not the typical B-movie sort of thing and it does make a positive difference.
The drums are programmed and it's not difficult to realize. It's like this was done on purpose and it works surprisingly well. The computer drums add to the gloomy feel of the music. The production is clean and crisp. It differs from the usual dirty and murky sound you hear on most goregrind CD's. The sound gives the music a clinical and almost sterile appearance. It goes well with the whole forensic imagery that Lymphatic Phlegm builds their music on. Show-off Cadavers - The Anatomy of Self Display is not for most people, but I advise those who like it bizarre and gross to take a closer look at the Brazilian duo. I had no idea what to expect, but Lymphatic Phlegm sure have left a lasting impression.
