Avulsed - Gorespattered Suicide

Artwork & design by Phlegeton

Spanish death metal band Avulsed has made all their full-length albums available on Bandcamp. Plus various live albums, cover albums and compilations. All for the low price of 1 €. My favorite is Gorespattered Suicide from 2005. This is tightly executed brutal death metal that is catchy, groovy, and well produced (The crisp production job is by Eric Rutan of Hate Eternal fame). Avulsed also throws in little surprises like a 15 seconds grindcore blast (winnnigly titled "Infernal Haemorrhoids"), and the enormous Amorphis like intro to "Filth Injected".

Avulsed proudly mentions that "As always... no fucking vocal distortion effects were used on this recording!!. Which is pretty amazing considering the inhumanly growls and shrieks vocalist Dave Rotten pulls off. But on the two live bonus tracks you can hear him sounding just as beastly outside of the studio. Gorespattered Suicide is great death metal. Some people prefer Yearning for the Grotesque from 2003, and their latest Nullo (The Pleasure of Self-Mutilation) from 2009 is also good. Check them all out. At 1 € per album you can't possibly go wrong.
