Some of you may remember me mentioning a one DeAnna DeHaas, the most brutal gal in SoCal and owner of Lobotomy Productions, pointing me to great goregrind bands such as Machete Dildo and Menstrual Muff Diver. She also told me to add the three-piece goregrind act known as Apoplexy to my list, and I happily did so. With this being the third band from California to be featured in this column, I am hoping that they will be able to keep up the high standard that has been set for them.
Exhumed is one of my all-time favorite death metal/goregrind bands, so it is with great pleasure that Apoplexy is able to bring back the glory of their “Gore Metal” days. All that you are left with is groovy death metal/goregrind that will get your feet tappin’ and head boppin’. Each one of these guys did a fantastic job on being able to execute that feeling perfectly; at times it even seems like Matt Harvey himself is doing the high vocals.
While the guitar tone may not be as thick as “Gore Metal“‘s was, these tracks would feel right at home on the album. There really isn’t a whole lot to say about the material here other than it is perfect Exhumed worship from beginning to end. Do you want to know what’s even better? You can contact the band on their Facebook profile and they will send you the EP for free! If you are a fan of old-school gore-infused death metal, then you would be a fool to not take up that offer.
