The year of 2007, somewhere in the cold North… Two sickos, called Lenets and Kolkka, wanted to express their appreciation / gratitude / whatever for bands like earlier Napalm Death and S.O.D. by going into extremes. ‘let’s sicken the world with gore and brutality’, they were thinking, and so they did when entering the studio. The moshing result is what I am listening at again right now, with a view to give you an idea of the filthiness you can expect when being part of the aural madness on Cannibal Accident’s 7”EP Lennu.

Not one single ‘song’ clocks over two minutes, but that’s the way it is meant to, I guess. But first of all: the sound. It sucks!

Then, the cover art work: it is great in this kind of music’s case. Primitive, gore and filthy, but perfectly fitting to the muSICK!

And then, finally, the ‘songs’. Punk-laden and gore-deadly Grind-eruptions, explosions of old schooled aural cruelty, re-interpretations of Scum, World Downfall, Dirty Rotten LP, Horrified and Speak English Or Die (FYI: Napalm Death, Terrorizer, D.R.I., Repulsion, S.O.D.). Memorable or not, it brings back the essence of the past (no matter which past you’re referring to). But then again, Lennu, with six tracks clocking nearly a poor nine minutes, lacks of any integrity, originality, renewity whatsoever. Like-it-or-not, but at this very moment it will be way too confusing for being way too unconfused in its simplicity. The bloody eighties have gone, you know…
