VULVAGUN: PRECISELY AS AWESOME/CHEESY AS THEIR BAND NAME
I guess the water supply at the MS Mansion this week has been poisoned with Power Metal Party Punch, ’cause Vulvagun are the second quality power metal submission we’ve gotten in as many days. Don’t worry, the music sounds exactly like how you’d expect given the band’s ridiculous name (which essentially translates to “penis” if I’m interpreting it correctly). More than likely, though, the band was just trying to turn heads with their name… and hey, mission accomplished. That album cover is completely OOC too. Kinda reminds me of the cover for In Flames’ Whoracle.
Vulvagun’s brand of Power is faster, more thrashy, and a touch less cheesy than most. The vocalist is pretty good but misses the mark from time to time which occasionally brings the band down, but they’re still pretty decent. Give ’em a listen.
