I was just waking up and realized I had little to nothing to do for the day. After becoming fully alert, making my bed, and logging on to my computer, I decided I would start the day off with a music review. I quickly loaded up Youtube and within a few minutes, I found my way to a split between Spewtum and Serotonin Leakage. Here we go!
The Spewtum portion of this split seems to be quite a tight little offering of gore. After two listens, I decided that I did, in fact, find Spewtum to be highly enjoyable. The guitar work (I think there is bass too?) is played well, is catchy, on time, and overall goes well with the rest of this portion of the release. The vocals are leaning on gargling/gurgling perfection and the drums (I'm pretty sure it is a machine) are programmed with ferocious intensity. So far, this side of the split is great.
As for Serotonin Leakage, the same amount of intensity that was found with Spewtum is also within the second portion of this release. The musicianship is slightly ''messier'' but this adds to the overall feeling of this split. The vocals are pitched to the depths of hell, and also have that ''watery'' vibe at times that is common amidst other bands in this genre. Again, this split seems to be a winner and I would encourage anyone to give these guys a listen.
As listed in the bio on Youtube, Spewtum is ''by Steve (also in Fentanyl Surprise & Decomposed Birth) From Vermont, since 2017.'' As for Serotonin Leakage, this project is ''Dr. Dank (also in Human Pancake) from Pennsylvania, since the mid-10s.''
