Review: Vulvodynia – Psychosadistic Design

So we have another Vulvodynia release under the title Psychosadistic Design and indeed it is. In case you somehow don’t know Vulvodynia, they are a slamming deathcore (you can argue on the sub-genre, I’m trying to be general) band from South Africa. They have 3 full-lengths, including Psychosadistic Design. If you have listened to any of their other songs before, you know what you’re getting into and what to expect. Listen/pick up Psychosadistic Design on Spotify, (this too) Bandcamp, their Bigcartel, and iTunes! Read more

Review: Various Artists – Astral Evisceration On All Hallows Eve

Splits are the most economically savvy way to discover new bands. In many ways, they’re crucial to finding smaller artists that you may enjoy. And there’s nothing better than a Halloween album.

Interview with Vulvodynia!

Genre(s): Slam Death Metal
Location: Durban

PSAB: Where does the band name “Vulvodynia” come from exactly?
Vulvodynia: The band name comes from a chronic disease with no known cure, so we thought it would be fitting for the genre we play.

PSAB: You released your album Lord of Plagues back in May. How was the feedback for that album upon release, and are you still receiving feedback now?

Vulvodynia: The feedback for Lord Of Plagues was so much better than we could’ve ever imagined & we’re extremely grateful for it.

PSAB: What are you interested in outside of making music? Your hobbies.

Vulvodynia: Personally, making music and going to gigs takes up a majority of my time.

PSAB: How is the metal scene in Durban?

Vulvodynia: The metal scene in Durban definitely has a shortage of bands at the moment, it feels like it’s getting better though.

PSAB: What has played the most influence on your music?

Vulvodynia: The major influences for me would definitely be Acrania & all the deathcore bands that got me into heavier music.

PSAB: Have any shout outs to give?

Vulvodynia: Just Slam It, Brutal Gear, Morbid Generation Records, Ingested, Swine Overlord, Acrania, Malodorous, Maggot Colony.
