Gutalax hails from The Czech Republic and has an unhealty fascination with excrement and with grindcore. Both are combinined into a thirty minutes lasting flow of musical diarrhea with brutal guitars, blasting drums and a vocalist who makes rhythmic pig squeals (and sometimes human screams as well).
The album opens with a fart and from there it never gets better. 'Fart Fart Away' even ends with the 'I Like Farts' song from Family Guy. In fact, it gets even sicker with titles like 'Smokes Ass With Diarrheal Sauce', 'Brothers In Ass' or 'Hairytails'.
Yet, if you listen to the music beyond the immature humour, you'll find a bunch of decent grinding riffs and a lot of variation in tempo. Most of the music isn't as fast as most grindcore songs but issues a mid/up tempo speed and that's a welcome chance once in a while.
Fact remains, Gutalax will remain a novelty-grindcore band and that is just fine. The vocals are quite unique and maybe downright irritating for some people. However, fact remains, they give this band a highly recognizable edge and it remains enjoyable for about thirty minutes, both on CD and live (I think) on festivals like Obscene Extreme, where they played several times.
So is this album recommended? Well, if you're into sick, twisted, deviant, disturbed and gore humourous grindcore it is. If you're not, check it out anyway, either you'll vomit out your own intestines our you'll shit bricks, laughing.
