Album Review

To say that Some Girls' Epitaph debut, Heaven's Pregnant Teens, is a sonic assault from beginning to end is — well, obvious. What else was really expected from this frantic and vicious grindcore fivesome? The album is a lesson in stamina, and invites the question as to whether the band will outlast the listener or vice versa. With no regard for easing delicate ears into the harsh realms of the disc, the band comes out of the gate growling and never lets up — 13 tracks and 25 destructive minutes later, they are over and done. And considering that the last song is the album's longest at nine minutes, it's really no shock that most tracks hover around the one-minute mark. Fierce, gritty vocals shriek over layers of crashing drums and distorted guitars, producing a meandering musical atmosphere designed to taunt and brutalize the audience. The sometimes incomprehensible and seemingly nonsensical lyrics bubble over with dark, despairing, and often religious imagery, heard in lines like "And I am puking devil's blood/Lord do you love me" from "You'll Be Happier with Lower Standards." Even surviving the irritating half-minute of feedback that opens "Bone Metal" does not completely prepare the listener for the next track, "Marry Mortuary," which blasts in with enough intensity to rattle any unassuming brain. Arguably the calmest track on the record is a Public Image Ltd. cover, "Religion II," but what the song lacks in spastic energy is made up for in sheer intensity. Those still breathing near the record's end should watch out for the drawn-out closer, "Deathface," whose use of echoing, repetitive vocals and taunting guitars produces a head-spinning, eerie funhouse ride for the eardrums, where demented beings jeer from the shadowy sides. Heed caution: Heaven's Pregnant Teens will have fans of likeminded groups (e.g., the Locust) bowing down at the altar of Some Girls, while everyone else will be running to the exits.

Grows on you

First of all, shouldn't ITUNES default reviews have some sort of unbiased standards so that reviews like the above don't paint a terrible picture for new listeners to this kind of music? It should really be redone by someone who knows what they're talking about. Fans of the locust will worship this and everyone else will run for the exit? Please. I didn't care for this much for the first year it was out. My friend had a copy and would often put it on and nothing I heard really compelled to make me listen to more of it, especially on my own time. But in explicably as time passed I found myself wanting to listen to it, up to the point that I bought it on vinyl. The songs are constructed very uniquely considering the styles that are drawn from to create the SG's canvas (punk, hardcore, etc). The songs are short and sweet, with writhing, whip-like rhythm. Buy it. Listen to it.

amazing

flat out genius

These guys make me think of everytime I die

wuhwuhwolves, by unbiased review I think you mean to say "a reviewer who enjoys the music" because most of the time the reviews just talk up the album and the band like they're some sort of musical messiah. That's pretty biased, it just does not talk about the band badly. I don't think the review for this album is incorrect. Just like everytime I die CDs (the old ones especially) it's just an endless shred of guitars vocals and drums till the end. And not everybody likes that kind of thing. I like it, I like how it sounds, and I enjoy my high energy music not being split apart by randomly put in acoustic interludes. That's great that one or both of the guitarists know how to play more than just grindcore metal, but I didn't buy the CD to hear them show off their other skills. I think it's a pretty honest and fair review for this album especially for somebody who obviously does not like this type of music. Though I will admit, it would help if the reviewers had experience with instruments, mainly ones used in the type of music they're reviewing, because it's always nice to read a review by somebody who comments on the actual talent and cleverness of song structures.

To fully appreciate and understand the history of Some Girls, one needs to know something about the group that paved the way for them: the Blake Babies.
