Sesso Violento – “Molestador” – [Prison Tatt Records]

sesso

Sesso Violento (“Violent Sex” in Italian) are a trio of Brazilian expatriates currently based in the UK. This one-sided 12″ EP from late 2013 is their third release. I hear more violence than sex in their atavistic sound, which is 1/3 hardcore punk (Discharge, GISM, Warcollapse) and 2/3 raw black metal (Hellhammer, Ildjarn, Akitsa, Malveillance, Bone Awl, Unholy Crucifix, Cult of Daath). The main aesthetic on these short cuts consists of galloping punk beats, simple atonal guitar riffs and vein-bursting shrieks (also some death growling on 3,4+8), with the occasional jot of Black Metal coldness and speed thrown in to keep things devilish. The one notable exception is 7, an interlude of delicate acoustic picking, muted percussion and skeezy glossolalia whispered through a delay. My personal favorite here is perhaps 5, but most of the songs sound similar enough (and track closely enough) that the record could almost be one long composition. Far from only appealing to fans of Black Metal, this bloody Bacchanal should appease anyone looking for a short burst of fast, heavy and loathsome music.
