Hindsight is at all times 20/20, however for ex-5 Finger Loss of life Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer, the previous is way clearer wanting again at his ill-fated Psychosexual and Psycho Synner initiatives.

9 albums in someday was… formidable, to say the least. Particularly when it looks like his affiliation with FFDP might need tainted his mission from the beginning, given how a lot everybody on the web makes use of that band as a punching bag.

However let’s be actual right here. That Psychosexual and Psycho Synner shit was turbo cringe. It was the sort of factor you’d play to your buddies to see how lengthy it took for them to show it off or stroll away.

Nonetheless, it’s factor Spencer’s taking his skills away from the make up and tacky songs about sin and intercourse and specializing in the extra demise metallic sounding Semi-Rotted.
