EXHUMED are one of the better known Gore/Grind Metal bands out there today, and with a debut LP like "Gore Metal" why wouldn't they be? If you're a fan of violence, brutality, gore, and music that's just generally obscene, then no doubt this album will definitely be of interest to you. All of this of course would not be complete without the juicy blood splattering chainsaw sound effects! EXHUMED have no problem dragging their listeners in by the hairs of their heads kicking and screaming.
Deep growls from beyond the grave combined with raspy blood curdling screams mesh together perfectly to fit the gruesome atmosphere this album produces. Although all 13 tracks on this album stand out in their own unique way, "Open The Abscess" seemed to really throw itself at me. It turned out to be the best track out of them all, right next to the cover of SODOM's "Sodomy And Lust".
This album truly is complete and utter chaos from start to finish. So, don't let the cover art scare you, go ahead and pick it up! You know you want to. (Online February 26, 2003)
