With a name like GORGASM and an album called ORGY OF MURDER, it’s pretty obvious that you are not going to hear soft romantic love songs, so if you are the type who likes romantic music that you can listen to with your girlfriend I suggest you go to Michael Bubles Myspace page. Now as far as everyone else is concerned keep reading below and you might find something worth listening to, especially all you Brutal Death Metal fans.
GORGASM is a four piece from Indiana, USA consisting of Damian “Tom” Leski(Guitar/Vocals), Kyle Christman(Drums), Anthony Voight(Bass/Vocals) and Ryan Saylor(Guitars). GORGASM’s sound is a return to the nineties reminding me of an era when Scott Burns ruled Death Metal, their sound is very raw unlike other Brutal Death Metal today like DEVOURMENT and PATHOLOGY and reminded me of two of the ground-breaking Death Metal bands from that time CANNIBAL CORPSE and SUFFOCATION. Like SUFFOCATION their sound is a good mix of technicality and brutality, in fact in the song EXHIBIT OF REPUNGANCE there is a riff in the end that could almost pass of as SUFFOCATION and like CANNIBAL CORPSE technicality here is not done for technicality’s sake like so many bands today like NECROPHAGIST and BRAINDRILL but make the song more intense and ofcourse the lyrics. How can we forget the lyrics which CC have been the inspiration for not only for this band, but for the entire Brutal Death Metal genre itself, its pretty clear from songs like AXE TO MOUTH, INFECTION INDUCED ERECTION, DECAPITATION SODOMY and CUM INSIDE THE CARCASS.
Well other than that all I can say is…BANG YOUR FUCKING HEAD! This is a killer Death Metal album that is fast intense and completely real and is a breath of fresh air from all of the technical wankery that is going in Death Metal these days. This album made me realise what Death Metal is all about, its not about playing the maximum number of notes in minimum time, it's not about how many polyrhythms you can pull off in a three minute song. Its being loud , being intense and it’s about melting the faces of your audience. And only a true Death Metal band can do that this album gets a from me a well-deserved totally brutal score of 8/10.
