Chi-town metal long-hairs Oozing Wound have head-banged their hardcore-cum-thrashtastic bludgeon into their exclusive hometown Thrill Jockey Records realm. Utterly ferocious with an unrivaled ear-splitting heaviosity, the new Retrash is a bulldozing epic of sleazy throat-bawling metal terror that would make those old dudes in Metallica and Slayer blush. Even better still, the heavier-than thou dirtbags in in Oozing Wound are the complete package: They cuss like mofos and are quintessential deviants and wise-cracking goons. Christ, the lead-off track on Retrash is called “Everybody I Hate Should Be Killed.” Enough said.
