Violent songs By Ben Read
Foetal Juice has been on the Extreme Metal Underground circuit for well over ten years now, a band with a passion for the gory and perverted side of life, introducing black humour and pure horror with subject matter including strange sects of nuns who piss in the font and eat their own shit as a form of worship, creepy bar flies that wait till women leave then furiously sniff their seats to inhale the sweet pheromones and George CorpseGrinder Fishers neck exploding from playing too much WOW.
They continue to consistently play various shows, playing to a healthy following alongside many of the genre’s heavyweights, headlining their own shows, playing with local metal acts and appearing in some of the most prestigious extreme metal festivals in and around Europe. In Dec 2016 they released their debut album ‘Masters of Absurdity” a violent none stop slab of nasty Death/Black/Grind gristle to get your teeth around and is available to stream, download and purchase physical copies through their Bandcamp, Bigcartel, Spotify and various other outlets.
We made sure the production for our first full length was to a professional standard. Chris Fielding was a very reliable source through word of mouth, and the man completely smashed it. We like our sound to be loud, vicious and clear, and we feel the album covers that. The content can vary in many ways with the writing, the structures mainly improvised until compressed into a song, then the lack of rules we have regarding the whole process kicks in to finalise it. We’ve always played and written things we enjoy as listeners and try to amuse ourselves. As our experience expands, hopefully, our ideas and songs will do the same, it’ll write itself.
We are very proud of our first release and enjoy sharing the music. There are many ways the album can improve on a personal and group level, and we hope to correct that for the next. But overall, we are happy with the music. We’ve started writing a couple of songs for the new album, it’s pushing our skill boundaries, and if we nail it, then the sound should be faster, heavier, groovier, and all the other influences.
Art has always caught my eye and I’ve bought albums because of it. Album art gives the content a face, but in our situation, it was more of a celebration to finally releasing an album. So we stuck our faces on a Hydra.
