Oozing Wound "Whatever Forever"
“So refreshingly anti-bullshit are Oozing Wound that they could conceivably turn out to be the Nirvana of thrash.” So said Noisey. That is some heavy praise. But it totally works. These dudes love music, love making music, and have no pretensions about themselves. They write songs about nonexistent Rambo movies, their favorite episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space 9, late cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov, and other awesome things for dudes to write songs about. All the while, the drums roll, the guitars buzz, and the vocals are screamed. This is not a passive listen. Whatever Forever (Thrill Jockey) is thrash metal at it’s punishing best. Check out the relentless “Tachycardia.”
