Nothing says doom like the searing, shred of a wildly distorted electric guitars. For our Nerdoween installment of Car Tunes and Cartoons, we tapped the spinal severing energy of Chicago’s Oozing Wound.
This is a group who is so no-frills in their approach that they will admit bluntly to not being into writing choruses. Rather, Oozing Wound have admitted to last.fm that they are all about “loud fucking guitars and screaming and shit.” How metal is that? These dudes really have no patience for the flowery constructions of pop music, and by virtue of working in a medium that valorizes rippage, Oozing Wound have perfected the art of succinct shock.
The playlist below matches spark of excitement that is pictured above in an illustration by Sam Nigrosh. Both capture the onset of an adrenaline fueled bender, whether its caused by picking up a raucous new album or pounding 5 redbulls in a row. This is the kind raw-skin, explosive energy you are about to get yourself into, and we seriously hope you enjoy.
