We got the yin and we got the yang. We finished yesterday’s postings with TesseracT and we start today’s with Flayed Disciple. We may not be good, but we’re sure as hell not monotonous.
Can you understand why I couldn’t resist listening to the new EP by Flayed Disciple?
Well, in my defense, allow me to say that although I have a strong impulsive desire to shock people when they least expect it and a personal taste for horrifyingly brutal death metal, I have never actually ejaculated while killing anyone or anything, and the idea of doing that does NOT appeal to me. I also get disgusted by metal bands who sell themselves with lyrics and album art that exploit the vicious degradation of women.
However, I do appreciate a good turn of phrase, and “ejaculate while killing” is just so over-the-top that I couldn’t resist. But as much fun as I have throwing big wet curveballs at all of you from time to time, I still wouldn’t be writing about this band if the music weren’t surprisingly VERY GOOD.
Flayed Disciple are from the UK and their latest EP apparently includes two older songs and two new ones. I say “apparently” because the Ejaculate EP as it’s available for purchase here in the U.S. (on iTunes and Amazon mp3) only includes the two new songs. Those two songs spun my head around so hard I had to check the mirror to make sure it wasn’t stuck in an ass-wards direction. (more after the jump . . .)
This shit is a freaked-out blast of death-thrash, like some Formula One machine with a corpse at the wheel, fishtailing across a crowded highway and leaving smoking wreckage in its wake. It’s loaded with hot, technically proficient riffage, the kind of bass vibrato that rings with a metallic clang, jackhammer drumming, and some absolutely pestilential soloing. Good, grisly vocals, too. Like Hate Eternal but with more groove. What the fuck is not to like, I ask you?
I don’t know where these guys come from, but they’re sure as fuck going places. Check out both of the new tracks on the new EP. You have our permission to ejaculate, but please don’t be killing anything while that happens.

Flayed Disciple is busily writing music for a full-length album for release in 2012. I can’t promise I won’t ejaculate until it cums out, but I will be eagerly awaiting the release. Now, here’s linkage for all you new Flayed Disciple disciples:
