EP Review: Cystic Hygroma "A Retrospective Of Abusive Disfigurements" (Tapeworm Prod.) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Cystic Hygroma
Country: France
Genre: Gorenoise
Format: Digital
Label: Tapeworm Prod.
Release date: June 12, 2023
Once again I was feeling like a blast of gorenoise so I made my way to YouTube to see what I could find. The first release I clicked on was “A Retrospective of Abusive Disfigurements” by Cystic Hygroma! I won’t lie—I was drawn to this one by the cover alone—but after listening I can state that this was quite the solid little blast of gurgles and audio warfare!
This EP was released in 2023. The guitars are low in the recording and aren’t much more than a fuzz—so I can say it is the percussion that takes the lead on this one. The drum machine sounds like it could be a machine gun or a well-tuned jack hammer! The fuzz of the guitar paired with the machine blasts and rampant gurgles makes for an intense “anti-musical” onslaught that could be described as “ear torture”—if torture was something that can be solidly enjoyed!
It states in the YouTube bio that this is a one man band hailing from France! Yet again the Gore Grinder account has presented us with something exceptional—so check out Cystic Hygroma and anything else that the Gore Grinder account has to offer! -Devin J. Meaney
