There’s not a lot you can say about a monstrous compilation like this one, other than be prepared to be shocked, repulsed, intrigued and ultimately exhausted in equal measure.  The ’net’ label side of Smell The Stench had a fine history of downloadable releases numbering into the high hundreds and around every 100th release they’d put out a gargantuan release like this one, bringing together as many noise-mongers from the Melbourne/wider Australian territories as possible, then adding in overseas contributions until saturation point was achieved.

This particular effort – the 400th net release, as reflected in the catalogue reference – was a 2008 event issued to celebrate the wedding of Leigh (Smell The Stench co-founder) and Mandi Stench.  And, as can be seen from some of the more entertaining song titles, many of the bands took the opportunity to make pertinent and relevant comments on this newly achieved nuptial bliss in their contributions.  Other songs seem pretty much to have been shoe-horned in for the hell of it, one of which being the Hrossharagrani contribution ‘Terminate’.

Normally one might have expected a noisy affair from Hugin’s Bonemachine project to have found its way onto this sort of collection (which, in fact, has been pretty much the order of things for previously reviewed STS endurathons) so to find a song by Hrossharsgrani is unexpected.  But then this was the period (2009) in which they went a bit industrial on us, moving away from their traditional Viking-influenced metal assault, so perhaps it was just the sound that Leigh was looking for?  ‘Terminate’, you may recall, appears on the somewhat abstract “Pro Liberate Dimicandum Est” album.  And, of course, Smell The Stench went onto release a few Hrossharsgrani titles after that time too such as the 3” CDr pressing of “The Long Grey Road” so this association led to interesting things in the years to come.
  
Other than a picture of the happy couple on their wedding day (below – don’t say Nazgul doesn’t try hard to get this stuff pulled together for you) there’s probably nothing more to say other than to reiterate the wise words of the Helmut Bernecker Noise Gore Experience: All The Best And A Wiener Schnitzel.

The happy couple: Mr and Mrs Stench
