Mor­ti­cian Chain­saw Dis­mem­ber­ment (Chain­Saw DiS­mem­Ber­ment, 1999)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

“On the af­ter­noon of Au­gust 18 1973, five young peo­ple in a Volk­swa­gen van ran out of gas on a farm road in South Texas. Four of them were never seen again…” Pinch­ing the omi­nous open­ing mono­logue from The Texas Chain­saw Mas­sacre 2, New York­ers Mor­ti­cian re­ally didn’t mess about in their trib­ute to the oft-over­looked se­quel to tobe hooper’s game-chang­ing hor­ror clas­sic. Ninety sec­onds of pul­veris­ing death­grind fol­low, leav­ing you with the ex­act same feel­ing of face-numb­ing dread and dis­gust as a fam­ily day out with leather­face et al. For a band who have made a ca­reer out of hor­ror love-ins, this blast of noise ranks as one of their finest mo­ments.

CHOICE LYRIC: “Can­ni­bals, re­turn to kill / Meet your death, sawed in two / Body parts, strewn about / Cut-off legs, sev­ered heads / Rot­ting flesh, macabre death”
