Another sick and depraved music appears! Necrophagia´s "Necrotorture/Sickcess" is a vomitous concoction of footage from shot on the road during the band´s 2003 European tour, including an entire live show from Spain. With the help of Fred Vogul, whom horror fanatics will recognize from the renowned video nasty, August Underground, and Jose Moral, who has shown the world his advanced visual aspects time and time again. If you´re looking for a boring, run of the mill live show, you´ve come to the wrong place. This is chock full of murder, cannibalism, debauchery, and outrageous simulated snuff footage. The live video was filmed with four different angle cameras and is an entire hour of bloody performance on high resolution and Dolby 5.1 professionaly mixed sound.

Whether they’ll cop to it or not, Necrophagia fans love kitsch, and frontman Killjoy will more than happily serve up skullfuls of the stuff. Naturally, their first DVD’s two features are chock full of cannibalism jokes, the band’s competent gore metal, and plenty of Killjoy making “quips” (read: he makes himself chuckle) as he says, “Nothing like fresh meat, ha ha ha” in the same growl he sings in after their stagehand “kills” a man onstage. This, after all, is the same little hobgoblin who has a MySpace blog that reads: “Subject: ‘I only fuck…’ Body: ‘Corpses or things vomited from hell!’” (Whew!)

With that in mind, this DVD comprehensively trades wit for lowbrow in-jokes, which is exactly what Necrophagia fans adore, judging from the eager folks begging to suck Killjoy’s blood on the “in-store horror” extra. The Sickcess documentary tracks a supposedly nervous filmmaker’s quest to investigate the “rumors” that surround the band about cannibalism (necrophagia literally means “eating dead human flesh”), as he naturally succumbs to killing and eating “corpses” alongside the band. Granted, this ain’t Bergman, but if Killjoy ate elephant shit onscreen instead of prosthetic, catsup-covered legs, it might pass as credible by early John Waters standards.

On the performance half, Necrotorture, Killjoy makes out with a fake, half-corpse thing, holds up an inverted cross to Bach-like organ playing, and all but forgets the man they “murdered” at the beginning of the show (imagine getting paid to play dead for an hour!). It’s good, silly fun that isn’t clean but isn’t entirely stupid either. Just be glad you’re not a corpse… or vomited from hell.—Kory Grow
