Visceral Disgorge – Slithering Evisceration (Review)

Visceral Disgorge - Slithering EviscerationThis is the second album from US death metallers Visceral Disgorge.

Here we have around 30 minutes of brutal death metal. It’s largely inspired by late 90s/early 00s classic death metal, although this is given a modern makeover and also incorporates some slam elements. Overall, the word for this album is brutal. Brutal Brutal Brutal.

The music is punishing and unrelenting. Fast and deadly, this is powered by the kind of blast beats that destroy buildings. It does operate at multiple paces, however, and the songs embrace different speeds around the blasting; different tools of the trade to get their grisly work done. The guitars are savage and lethal, embracing both barbarity and technical sharpness where needed to get the killing over quickly. Thick crushing chugs one moment, insanely over-the-top intricate speed the next.

The vocals are guttural and low in the mix, sounding inhuman and without feeling. They’re probably my least favourite part of the album, although they’re certainly not done poorly.

Overall Slithering Evisceration is a solid slab of ugly brutality. While it won’t set the world on fire, it will satiate your need for brutality, if you have such a thing.
