这是这支来自美国伊利诺斯州臭名昭著的PORN/SICK BRUTAL GRINDING DEATH乐队的第3张正式专辑，由乐队自己的厂牌WACO PRODUCTIONS发表。与乐队的上两张作品相比，WACO JESUS在这张“Receptive When Beaten”中的风格发生了一定的变化，主要表现在以下两个方面。首先，音乐大幅的碾核化。刺耳的尖叫、嘈杂吵闹的噪音RIFF以及呈现散射状的鼓点等核类音乐标准的表现手法都被乐队更加大胆、更加肆无忌惮地运用，在整体音乐中所占比例要明显高过乐队的前两张专辑，有的段落给人的感受甚至接近FAST GRIND音乐。这种塑造出的仿佛噪音的汪洋大海般的音乐氛围与碾核音乐有共通之处，但随着整体音乐噪音指数的提高，乐队以前作品中那种引以为豪的“大便味道”以及色情气息有所衰弱。其次，乐队对技术有了更高的追求，作品的技术性较之以往作品有了很大的提高。无论是编排得密密麻麻的、发声接近GUTTURAL唱腔的真嗓低音吼叫；紧凑刚劲的、如同旋风般的BLAST BEAT军鼓连击；还是有着更强GROOVY色彩的吉他RIFF，都处处显示出乐队在音乐的技术上颇下了一番工夫。整张专辑编曲缜密、大气，有着大牌死亡乐队的风范。总之，WACO JESUS的这张“Receptive When Beaten”，对自己以往颇具好评的作品作出了一定的修正，音乐在强化了技术、加大了碾核味道的同时，依然保持了相当的伊州乐队独特的变态色情气息，与LIVIDITY的新作“Used, Abused And Left For Dead”一样，都是让我们足以对伊州死亡音乐重新概念的作品。网络来自！这乐队我喜欢！鼓比较铥！
What we have here is one of the sickest bands in metal history…or at least what it used to be the sickest band for that matter. Waco Jesus is a band that keeps impressing me with their evolution and development; they used to be a band focused in scat-sex pictures, fast as hell music and misogynist lyrics; then, four years later, they grabbed all those elements and mixed them with well structured music and different kind of lyrics; now, after 3 more years, they created a violent monster jam-packed with catchy riffs, variable structures and multi-faceted songwriting.
When it comes to Waco Jesus I never thought I'd be saying this things actually; but these guys polished their music to finally sound skilled and experienced. It's Brutal Deathgrind, don't expect to find pink floyd-esque music, conceited arrangements or that kind of stuff; you'll still be bombarded with sickening music, aggressive execution and shivering vocalizations for half-hour straight.
In this brutal orgy you'll be able to find both ends of the band, the "hostile just for the sake of beating women" part, and the newer "We're also good and capable musicians" piece; songs like "Receptive When Beaten", "The War On Women" or "Science God", will astonish most of the ears that are used to the utter belligerence of the band's early material, while "A 40 To The Face" and "Respect The Fist…Bitch" will please the brutal ears waiting to bleed.
This album will blow the brains out of the "big names" in the scene; I wish albums like this one could get more distribution and more fanatics. The band was smart enough to add one of the most entertaining booklets in this CD; let me just say that, if every group were as cool as this one, adding pictures like the ones found in the layout and phrases like "I Love Johnny B. Because He Licks Me Where I Pee" there would be nobody buying piracy in the streets or downloading music from the internet, that's for [内容被过滤，请注意论坛文明]ing sure.
I can't recommend this album enough; this is what people should be listening instead of fruity-emo bands that wrongfully teach the youngsters that it's ok to cry and shit. This is maybe the most entertaining album I've heard this year, it has everything…hilarious lyrics, brutal music, nudity, a couple of guitar solos, a lot of catchy riffs, versatile patterns and even complex songwriting. Purists [内容被过滤，请注意论坛文明] off!!!
