You have to be pretty smart to be this dumb. Everything from the press release to the song titles to the balls-out, gonzo riffs suggests Oozing Wound must be the smartest guys in Chicago.

Whatever Forever is 48 minutes of mean, nasty, ugly, stoopid metal – from thrash to sludge and back again. Of course, as with any band immersing themselves in this sort of nonsense, Oozing Wound can REALLY play, they just don’t let that get in the way of a good time. The riffs are huge, the drums are ridiculous (check out the RAGING Weather Tamer), the vocals are larynx-shredding and the songs titles are pleasingly daft (You Owe Me, Iommi).

Ain’t no party like an Oozing Wound party…
