Fuck The Facts - Disgorge Mexico album cover

There has been a fuss about this band lately and I was really curious to see what are these guys (and a girl to be more precise) all about. I kind of expected to face a 'core' band, since Relapse Records has started ruling this scene with exceptional releases. I hope FUCK THE FACTS is one more case of quality Hardcore.

The band hails from Ottawa, Canada, and was formed somewhere around 1998. FTF was formerly a solo band ran by Topon Das. They have released numerous albums, EP's and a huge number of split CD's and they now return with their brand new full-length offering to prove that Relapse was more than clever to sign them.

Their music is of course not the normal Metal music someone may expect to listen to. Relapse is all about signing weird bands with non standard tempos and compositions and FTF is one of them. Combining their Grind influences with a Hardcore aesthetic, the Canadian metallers craft a haunting atmosphere full of butchered corpses, rotten societies and sarcastic attitude. I admit that their lyrics are really clever. There must be something in the water they drink in Canada. There is no other explanation for bands like ANNIHILATOR, EXCITER, INFERNAL MAJESTY and many more.

To tell you the truth, Disgorge Mexico was a bit hard for me, since the band's music is definitely not something that amazed me, though it is somehow strangely beautiful. The band has a wide variety of sounds that range from Grind riffing and relentless drumming to Hardcore beatdown and Stoner groovy parts. Even though this won't be one of your best buying options for 2008, it will surely be an album that will spend some time spinning in your CD player. Even if it is mostly until you understand its music.
