Pungent Stench - Been Caught Buttering (1991)

One of my favorite death metal albums from the early 90s. Bluesy, groove-filled death metal with a hint of doom, and a bucket of gory humor and deranged sexuality. The production is sufficiently muddy for the music to deliver the sickeningly repulsive atmosphere it deserves, but every instrument is audible. The cover is a picture by photographer Joel-Peter Witkin (google the name for the rest of his works, you'll shit bricks) to boot, which adds to the creepiness.
