DEATHSEX BLOODBATH – ‘Are You There God? It’s Deathsex Bloodbath’ Review

DEATHSEX BLOODBATH – Are You There God? It’s Deathsex Bloodbath

deathsex-bloodbathFrom the same town that brought us The Specials, Coventry’s Deathsex Bloodbath are hard to pin down. They released their new EP, Are You There God? It’s Deathsex Bloodbath, at the end of October and there are six diverse and energetic songs to enjoy.

Opening with You Are Dead! We Are Deathsex, a Cramps/T-Rex style rock and roll romp that sees a back and forth of male and female lead vocals.

Been To Kettering (what a great song title!) expands on the glam rock/punk crossover with a heavy 1970s feel. The lyrics are full of humor and sex and there’s a dirty guitar solo to top things off. It’s three minutes and twenty seconds’ pure pop perfection.

The third song on the EP is My Fingers Are Wet, a track that sees the female vocalist take the reigns and drive home a feminist message (all about masturbation I think!) over a lilting guitar lick. The song builds really nicely to a faster rocking, ahem, climax! (sorry, couldn’t resist that)

Deathsex Bloodbath have headlined festivals around Europe and they have released a very accomplished record. Real Dolls Destroy Humanity introduces a funkier guitar riff for the verses before launching into a powerful chorus. The sex theme continues as the bands name suggests.

The fifth track is The Scarlet Letters clocking in at over four and a half minutes. It starts with a mellow guitar and almost spoken word before the drums kick in and step up the pace. The guitar then kicks in with a vengeance as the lyrics cover the life of an indie band. The female vocals add yet another layer as the song continues to grow.

Ending with a lambasting of the male members of society with Men, the band leave nothing on the line.
