Coming seemingly out of nowhere, France’s Love Sex Machine bestowed their self-titled debut upon the metal world in 2012. In addition to the band’s eye-catching name, the cover art depicted a meerkat standing among an apocalyptic background. The album’s crassly comical song titles, such as “Killed By Monster Cock” and “Anal on Deceased Virgin”, only made the band more intriguing. But behind the humor were eight tracks of deafening, raw sludge metal, rife with massive grooves and an appetite for destruction. It was, arguably, one of the more interesting and deadly sludge-oriented releases of that year. Four years and some line-up changes later, the band return with the highly-anticipated follow-up to that bestial debut. Asexual Anger, their sophomore effort, drags the listener back into their abyss of low-end malevolence.
