Me and Sergeant D don't have much in common. He likes lame indie chicks and pop-punk, I like sci-fi and books by David Icke. He likes scene hair and "modern" hardcore, I like barbarians and unicorns. Very little common ground in the realms of pop culture. But there is one we thing we both agree on: WIGGER SLAM.
Sarge was the one who first turned me on to Cephalotripsy (BEST. WIGGER SLAM BAND. EVER.), and I can't thank him enough, as their 2007 mission statement Uterovaginal Insertion of Extirpated Anomalies has withstood the test of time, remaining on constant rotation here at ICHQ ever since. It seemed that no album would ever usurp Anomalies as the crown jewel of camo-pantsed wiggerslammery, but that was before I had discovered CONDEMNED.
Condemned consists of a bunch of the same dudes that are in Cephalotripsy, and predictably sound rather similar -- snappy, inhuman blastbeats, humorously low vocals, crunchy guitars, and mosh-inducing breakdowns. But in the battle for wigger slam dominance, Condemned takes the cake. Their slammz are even more crushing, their beats more robotic, their song titles more ridiculously generic ("Impulsive Dismemberment", "Amputated Repugnance", "Subject To Infliction", "Catharsis of Human Impurity"). And while I realize that slam metal is a highly unpopular and much-maligned subgenre here amongst the IllCon readership, I offer this, Condemned's 2007 full-length debut Desecrate The Vile, as a treat for those of us with higher standards.
