A genre-altering slab of venomous, jaw-jarring death-metal, Gore Metal was initially issued in 1998 and oozes a charismatic audio repugnance, its maniacal riff mutinies, foul-themed, slasher-film-inspired verbiage and putrid cover art still abhorrently alluring nearly two decades since its unveiling.

The band is currently on tour with Napalm Death, Voivod, Iron Reagan and Black Crown Initiate with Ringworm, Dayglo Abortions, Theories and Phobia to appear on select performances throughout the run.

Ghoul – Intermediate Level Hard-Core EP
