Sometimes the wonderful thing everyone needs is grindcore and Corrupt Moral Altar deliver that in spades with their new EP, Patiently Waiting for Wonderful Things. Picking up where 2017’s Eunoia full-length left off, Patiently Waiting for Wonderful Things is a spastic, high-energy romp through grind, death metal, noise rock and general extremity.
Napalm Death live guitarist John Cooke plays guitar in Corrupt Moral Altar and drummer/producer Tom Dring is responsible for all three Venom Prison releases, so it comes as little surprise that Patiently Waiting for Wonderful Things is both memorable and sounds like a train bearing down upon the listener.
“Cathedral of Porn” and “You Smell Expensive” provide sassy noise rock attitude while the back half provides more straightforward death and grind craziness—and at only five songs, we’re left impatiently waiting for more at the conclusion of “I am an Ocean of Wisdom.”
“2020: the year that keeps on taking,” Dring tells Decibel. “Although we’re thrilled to reveal this stream of Patiently Waiting For Wonderful Things via Decibel, those of you waiting for physical vinyl copies will have to flex your patience muscle a little longer, as the truck which was delivering our records to APF HQ was involved in an accident and much of the cargo was destroyed. Some say the heaviness was too much for the vehicle to bear, others say ‘don’t say that, you insensitive dickheads’ and they’re probably right. In all seriousness, we hope those involved in the accident are OK, we hope you enjoy the EP stream and you’ll just have to sit tight a little while longer for the physical copies!”
