Since 2018, Arizona’s FLUIDS have been prolifically polluting the underground with their remorselessly disgusting brand of goregrind. The band’s debut album, Exploitative Practices, came in 2019, but before and definitely after have plenty of short-length assaults on good taste come/cum, each one a swift ‘n’ sick declaration of total goregrind purity: knuckle-dragging, ignorant, and intensely foul ‘n’ filthy.
Originally released on cassette during the first half of 2020, just in time for the worldwide coronavirus quarantine, FLUIDS’ Fluids of Death compilation spread its disease by collecting together the band’s debut digital-only demo, Arterial Rift, from 2018; the subsequent two-song Bagged & Tagged demo from early 2019, also previously a digital-only release; the Piled II: The Repile digital single, another 2019 release; two songs from the band’s split 7” Torture Euphoric, in 2020; and finally, the Riddled digital single from 2020. Across these 13 songs in 38 minutes, FLUIDS indeed unleash a stream of slimy, speculum-spreading, all-caps GOREGRIND in the grand, drum-programmed 'n' fuzz-toned tradition of godfathers MORTICIAN. No more but definitely no less, Fluids of Death is mandatory listening for gorefiends, and especially for those into the new breed of old-style goregrind – and it’s now on vinyl!
