Gruesome proved to be one of the most exciting Death Metal units to emerge this year. What made them so conceptually brilliant was their emulation of the band DEATH – the beloved godfather’s of the sub-genre. Better yet, they boast a heavy hitting line-up of musicians including members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and Derketa. They stuck hard with the release of their debut album “Savage Land”.
Now, it appears as if Gruesome are ready to advance even further. Right now, they’re preparing to record a brand new EP under a most special light. They’ll be writing / recording the effort in Chuck Schuldiner’s hometown! This will be done at New Constellation RMP Studios in Orlando, Florida with Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Agnostic Front) helping the cause.
Here’s what the band had to say in regards to this:
“This fall we’ll be heading to Chuck‘s hometown of Orlando to start working on our upcoming release. For this one, we’ve dug even deeper into the roots of our favorite Floridians Death, with some lewd, rude and crude Death Metal. It’s gonna be nasty and raw and I can’t wait to see what returning cover artist Ed Repka comes up for this one! This record is designed to be cranked on cassette in your I-ROC Z and totally piss off the PMRC, if those were still things that happened.”
While we wait for more from Gruesome, enjoy some of the Death inducing music from “Savage Land”!
