Vulvodynia tear South Africa a new one with 'Mob Justice.'

Three years since the release of 'Psychosadistic Design' Vulvodynia are back with a heavy, guttural album called 'Mob Justice' that tackles the dark side of living in South Africa.

The album opens with “Feast,” a disturbing soundscape that sounds like a landfill coming to life, which sets the scene for a blast-beat, riff-fuelled dissection of the systemic shit-show that this country can be.

Tackling everything from vigilantism (Mob Justice) and child soldier recruitment (Blood Diamond) to rampant drug addiction (Nyaope) and even gender inequality (Cultural Misogyny,) Vulvodynia prove that there is nothing too taboo, too uncomfortable, to be brought into the spotlight.

'Mob Justice' is an honest, matter-of-fact assessment of the state of the nation that highlights all the evils we face in this country. Nothing is ignored or swept under the carpet. It’s brought out into the open in all its grotesque infamy for the world to see.

If Vulvodynia were ever in the running to be ambassadors for South Africa, then this album has all but ruined their chances. This isn’t a tourism advertisement but rather a f*ck you to the people who have, and who continue to take the citizens of this country for fools.

About Vulvadonia

Vulvodynia are the pioneer in what is rapidly becoming Africa’s most eviscerating export: Slamming Brutal Death Metal. With lobotomizing, lurid riffs, skin-shredding blast beats and slams gruesome and filthy enough to induce septic shock, Vulvodynia are a lethal plague, spreading throughout the flesh of today’s heavy music scene—infecting one set of ears at a time, and leaving no survivors.
