Anal Trump - That makes me smart (album review)

Anal Trump - That Makes Me Smart (Album review)
Genre - Grindcore
Year - 2016

Anal Trump are an American Grindcore duo that, as their name suggests, parodies Grindcore legends Anal Cunt and also mocks far-right American President Donald Trump. 

Each song is around 3 - 10 seconds long, something similar from bands such as Napalm Death, with a heavy distorted guitar,  quick blast beat drumming and  harsh screamed/squealed vocals.
Each song is hilarious in their mocking of Trump and his questionable opinions/political standpoints.
a particularly brilliant track is Dave Mustaine is cool  which features Megadeth's bass line to peace sells.

Anal Trump may be labelled a joke band but it is undeniable that the duo have a talent and a market, appealing to all the left-wing who hate Trump, with Rob Trump playing all the instruments, doing an excellent albeit very small job (the whole album is only 3 minutes 10 seconds long) and the same can be said for Travis Trump and his deep brutal vocals. Anal Trump are a band that are relevant, funny and most importantly; talented .

while That makes me smart is short, it is definitely an album worth checking out and will not disappoint (unless you voted Trump....). Buy it and make Grindcore Great again.
