; ~Ever the dark duo of musical oddities, Boobs of DOOM set out in Xmas 2015 to document just two, almost opposing, facets of their oeuvre in the form of retro mixtapes.
The rules were:
1. no more than 60 min run time (to fit onto the classic C60 cassette format, see?)
2. no more than 12 tracks
3. at least one track from each of D(((O)))(((O)))M's six albums to date
4. one unreleased exclusive to annoy completists.
The intention being that these two 'tapes' would serve as a humorous way to introduce the band to new listeners, and make a merry-prankster style comment on the futility of trying to pigeon-hole any artistic endeavour.
The only person who found this funny, of course, was Sadsack. It was his idea. Thumper thought it was a fucking stupid idea.
Regardless, they exist. Here they are.
This is Thumper's 'GRIMMROKK' tape. Shedding some light on the post-metal/post-rock post-y side of the band: angular guitar lines, heavy riffs, epic droning walls of sound, influenced by loons such as Sunn O))), Mogwai, Cult of Luna, Swans & Nine Inch Nails, but with, y'know squiggly noises and 303's and stuff. This is the Metal album its okay for the Dance kids to like.

Thumper still reckons this is a fucking stupid idea and doesn't "give a bald monkey's twat" that she broke the 60 min rule...
