I don't think there is an accurate way to designate a numeral to Crotchduster's Big Fat Box of Shit. It is as if Capharnaum's Jason Suecof channeled every ounce of humor and metal from his being into one tremendous platter of music that's as disturbing as it is hilarious and random. Much like Dave Brockie and Mike Patton before him, Suecof has stretched the definitions of metal and even music to create something so entirely ridiculous, it's either inane or genius. I am personally inclined to lean towards genius, but let's explore it a bit further.

The basic "formula" for the songs on this record is to cram as many random musical vignettes as possible into one song. That could include everything from impressions of notable metal bands to rapping to goofy circus music and more. While this could've easily been terrible, the execution is just too damn good. It's like the metal album version of the best sketch comedy you can think of. It seems that besides his obvious talent manifested in Capharnaum, Suecof has a musical knowledge and versatility that is only made more apparent through the humor inherent in its delivery.

Description of the music is pointless. There is a twisted imagination behind this record that ensures no description could ever do it justice. I can say that the production was spot on at every point on this record, no matter what style of music Crotchduster was playing. The funk, showtunes and power metal sounded just as good as the blastbeats and growls. 99% of the lyrics deal with some sort of filthy sexual activity and the rest involve killing the Dutch and Boba Fett.

Bottom Line: If you like metal and don't laugh your ass off at this record, you're probably wearing corpse paint, panties or a little military cap right now. As long as you don't take yourself, metal or sex too seriously, Crotchduster's Big Fat Box of Shit will crack you up, make you cringe and, most importantly, press play again and again. Don't think about it too hard. Just go with it.

This album is hilarious. It's too bad that sceneXedge kids aren't allowed to have a sense of humour, they might actually appreciate the technicality and the creativity on this disc. Oh wait, my bad. Did I just say scene and creative in the same sentence?

Face it, y'all are just mad cuz they didn't make any of their songs sound more like Between The Buried And Me.

Cuz, y'know, BTBAM is liekk s0000 d3thXXXcore!!! XMETALX

Please. Get off your myspaces and listen to Crotchduster.

Hahaha, well you do have a sense of humor. This album is incredibly awesome. The randomness is just... it's too fun. One of the best things about this album is just trying to figure out what's going to happen next. It's simply the most retarded thing i've ever heard but it's done quite skillfully. I wish there was a little more metal sound but eh, whatever.

Cory, your bottom line comment is quite funny. Kudos.

This is a great album by really talented musicians. All you people who down it, and call it crap are too hardcore. You need to lighten up and respect something that you yourself could never create in your derivative lifetime.
