Just today I've read a review of some old grindcore demo, which ended with such words:

"You wonder why I don't review grindcore all that often? This is why. The genre is mostly full of shitty talentless bands who put absolutely no effort into anything..."

Couldn't agree more, especially when it comes to all these "comedy grind" bands which completely dominate the ex-USSR grindcore scene. This particular album, however, is another case. I couldn't find much information about Deflowering Brain, except for their place of origin (Moscow), but their music isn't bad at all. While they still are a "comedy grind" band, their lyrical themes are post-apocalypse / sci-fi (this album is about a world war against alien invaders, for example), which is surely more original and interesting than the usual porn/copro/gore nonsense that most grindcore bands are writing songs about. There's also a nice melodic death metal vibe to it, mostly dur to use of old Soviet/WWII melodies. Heroic grindcore FTW!
