Do you want some gore? I said, DO YOU WANT SOME GORE?!?!?!?!?!
If your answer to that question is “No.” feel free to stab yourself in the face with an ice pick to save me the effort. If your answer is to pull out a chainsaw, rev it up and start carving up your neighbors, then Morgue Metal is for you!
The first half of this split offering is brought to you by Spanish legends Haemorrhage. For the uninitiated, Haemorrhage play a brand of goregrind inspired heavily by Reek of Putrefaction and Symphonies of Sickness-era Carcass. While the band continues to worship at the altar of Steer, Walker and Owen, the three tracks featured on Morgue Metal also include have a strong Gruesome Stuff Relish-meets-Embalming Theatre vibe to them.
The four remaining tracks are performed by Mexican death metal/goregrinders Disgorge, who are still going strong after 17 years. The material picks up where the criminally underrated Gore Blessed to the Worms left off, as the band shred, blast, rasp and gurgle their way through 13+ minutes of distorted death/gore. The production is more raw than a freshly butchered slab of beef, which gives the material an insanely demented sound. The most surprising aspect of their four tracks is the strong old school Swedish death metal influence evident throughout, making the Disgorge sound even more dynamic than before.
If you’re a fan of goregrind, and/or demented death metal, Morgue Metal should be at the top of your wish list. Disgorge have unleashed their strongest material to date, and Haemorrhage have yet to disappoint in their 21 years of butchery!!
