||“The Smell of Money” is an enhanced
CDEP in digipak form from the band hewhocorrupts,
featuring a scratch & sniff spot on the package of laundered money!
Yeah that’s, what I said…I know it might sound strange,
but if you scratch the eyeball on the back of the disc, it actually
works. So already this EP does more for your senses then just a normal
disc, and this is far from normal discs. There’s and enhanced
portion on the disc as well, which includes a video for “Master
of Profits” from a previous release, and an interview with the
band. And if that wasn’t enough for this disc, 100 copies of
this CD will have a signed one-dollar bill from Tommy Camaro. Enough
with the extras, on to the music… You can probably put them
in a similar category of Cephalic Carnage or A.C (Anal Cunt) in songwriting,
with a little more hardcore sound though. This is five songs of energy
filled chaos! Sometimes grindcore bands leave you unfulfilled, not
hewhocorrupts. Sure, the songs are short but what else would you expect.
I could go for a few more, heavy breakdown riffs, like the end of
“Pain In the Tight Pants”, and having a few more tracks
would be nice too. The total length of the five tracks is almost eight
minutes. Short and sweet I guess. So now with the music, the only
sense they didn’t touch is taste…I guess you could eat
the package, but why would you want to ruin such a nice design? Thanks
for an almost literal, total assault on all my senses!
