FLAGITIOUS IDIOSYNCRASY IN THE DILAPIDATION: Self-titled: LP

I have absolutely no idea what Flagitious Idiosyncrasy In The Dilapidation’s name means, and I’m too lazy to look for a dictionary. It looks like Carcass lyrics to me. The music, however, is undeniably brutal grindcore and even a dolt such as myself can understand that. Take the precision of Discordance Axis, throw in Drop Dead’s crustier leanings and wrap them in the modern grind styles of Hewhocorrupts. Now change all of those bands’ members into women. FID may very well be the world’s first and fastest all-female grindcore band. Japan has never been short of bands with strong female presence (Melt Banana, Romantic Gorilla), but FID is, thankfully, here to cover all the bases. Pummeling heaviness and whirlwind speed all brought to you courtesy of four cute women who look like they weigh less than their instruments. It’s always awesome to see the ladies kick down the door of a sausage fest of a genre then proceed to musically kick everyone in the balls.
