Avulsed - Deathgeneration Award winner

by Craig “Thrashing” Rider at 26 February 2017, 8:19 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: AVULSED; signed via Xtreem Music, hailing from Spanish grounds – performing Death Metal, on their 7th album entitled: “Deathgeneration”. (Released on November 1st, 2016)

Since formation in 1991; the quintet in question have 6 albums behind them, I'm introduced to their 7thDeathgeneration”. Going in with the highest of expectations; I expected a typical slab of solid Death Metal, and that's exactly what I got. Right off the earphones; “Amidst The Macabre” (an instrumental) inaugurate us to what's in store, following into “Stabwound Orgasm” - I evaluate an augmented discovery that AVULSED incorporate the deadliest of Death Metal that one could possibly wish for. Not only that, celebrating their 25th Anniversary, the quartet celebrate this occasion and committed a very ambitious project – with a double disc release including 18 of their best songs from all their albums, EPs, and demos. But to make this release surprisingly interesting; the band also includes a total of 16 guest vocalists from infamous bands such as VADER, NAPALM DEATH, AT THE GATES, ABORTED, DEMILICH, AUTOPSY, GOD MACABRE, PENTAGRAM CHILE, MASSACRE, PAGANIZER, SINISTER, PURTENANCE, MORTICIAN, SUPURATION, INTERMENT & DETERIOROT. As a Death Metal purist; I was immediately excited as soon as I researched this unprecedented intricately designed creation. As soon as I hit the next track “Breaking Hymensfeaturing Per Boder from GOD MACACRE, I was struck with a fierce production in Death Metal history.

Sweet Lobotomy” (featuring Chris Reifert from AUTOPSY), “Burnt But Not Carbonized” (featurin Antti Boman from DEMILICH) & “Daddy Stew (featuring Svencho from ABORTED) equally showcase complex distinctness with coordination from Dave Rotten on vocals who unleashes some of the most deeply performed guttural growls I have heard in Death Metal hands down. The dexterous duo “Cabra” & Juancar on guitars formulate an eccentric pummeling; exercising the most extreme riffs of distinct intentions to deliver an efficient collaboration that unites an organic aesthetic to the sound production as well as songwriting proficiency. “Addicted To Carrion” (featuring Will Rahmer from MORTICIAN), “Dead Flesh Awakened” (featuring Rogga Johansson) & “Powdered Flesh” (featuring Ludo Loez) energize for prominent Death Metal that's built for the ages.

The enlightening powerhouse of Tana on bass and Arjan van der Wijst on drums contributes sufficiently well with flair to this destructive sound production that was built with masterful adroitness. “Gorespattered Suicide” (feat. Mike van Mastrigt), “Nullo (The Pleasure Of Self-Mutilation) \[feat. Johan Jansson) & “Exorcismo Vaginal (feat. Paul Zavaleta) compose some incredibly memorable and original Death Metal, and while giving you such an energetic boost of brutalization to get you through the day…elements at greatness in my book. “Carnivoracity” (feat. Anton Reisenegger), “Sick Sick Sex(feat. Ville Koskela) & “Devourer Of The Dead” (feat. Tomas Lindgren) extends this adapt display of showmanship with exquisite brutality Death Metal fans will ultimately relish tenfold. And so disc 1 ends with “Horrified By Repulsion” (feat. Kam Lee), “Blessed By Gore” (feat. Bongo) & “Red Viscera Serology” (feat. John McEntee).

Disc 1 serves as a revisited, re-versioned compilation of best of tracks in their legacy while disc 2 holds as the originals of the remade tracks in disc 1. Complicated? Not really. Just a little confusing. AVULSED consistently distribute with divine clarity towards the sub-genre with elegant precision; as a Death Metal maniac, I am compelled to say that this release gets the utmost respect and certainly deserves recognition. This acquisition has earned them a new fan!
