Blood Freak Goes for the Grossout on “Filthworm”


Halloween is almost here, which means it’s time for horrific, gross music and horror movie mania. Blood Freak’s Maniac Neil, a horror film and gore comic buff himself, has dedicated his entire career to horror and gore. From Lord Gore’s tentacle abuse to Blood Freak and Frightmare’s massacre-at-the-drive-in splatter metal spasms, this fanatic’s obsession literally defines and magnifies the intensity of his intense, thrashing deathgrind.

Though Maniac Neil’s cartoonish works in Bringing Back The Bloodshed and Midnight Murder Mania were the soundtracks to my late teenage summers, it’s become increasingly obvious that his music has matured, much like me, over the last decade. Now instead of representing chintzy special effects (remember the paper mache vampire turkey head in “Blood Freak” the movie?) and comical amounts of blood, Blood Freak is all the more visceral and gross.

Heralding the band’s upcoming Halloween release Total Destruction of the Human Form, “Filthworm” is a violent, slimy work of truly abhorrent metal of grinding death. Gone are the more overt 1980’s thrash tropes which characterized Blood Freak’s first era, though that should be expected given the intensity of their last few albums, opting for a straightforward burst straight from the guts. Much like the rest of the album, this is absolutely gnarly: a twisted, ablated mass of flesh, viscera, and hacked bone fragments. I wouldn’t take Blood Freak any other way.

Total Destruction of the Human Form will be unleashed All Hallows Eve (October 31st, duh) on Horror Pain Gore Death. Listen to “Filthworm” below.
