Gutslit - Amputheatre Award winner

by Craig Rider at 06 December 2017, 7:35 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: GUTSLIT; signed via Transcending Obscurity India Records, hailing from Indian grounds - performing Brutal Death Metal/Grind, on their 2nd album entitled: “Amputheatre” (released September 1st, 2017).

Since formation in 2007; the quintet in question have only 1 album in their discography, I'm introduced to their 2nd record: “Amputheatre”. Constructing an intricately designed formula of battering Brutal Death Metal/Grind implementations; GUTSLIT arrange a fiercely developed characteristic of hard-hitting malice, juxtaposed with distinctive instrumentation and musicianship. 9 savagely sinister tracks, ranging at around 28:40 - these Indian metallers contribute a solid slab of menacing mechanics amalgamated with barbaric orchestrations. Opening up with the titular track, which builds up to a deadly element of chaotic terror - until the real mayhem ensues with “Brazen Bull”. Consistently attributing with malevolent songwriting and sound production equalities, “From One Ear To Another” delivers hammering hostility, which demonstrate captivating guttural grunts and pig squeals from vocalist Kaushal LS – who provides with admirably beastly contrast.

Consisting of complex dexterity from guitarist Prateek Rajagopal; the nimble efficiency here is proficiently executed, as in “Necktie Party” I hear an abundant amount of swifty riffs and solos that supplies aggressively progressive technicalities. “Blood Eagle” showcases intense pummeling from powerhouse bassist Gurdip Singh Narang, the dominant stability is profusely prominent – fusing with the guitar and drum work diligently. “Brodequin” (meaning torture, according to Google); gallops with tormenting dynamics, meaty drum kicking pedal work from the pulverizing Aaron Pinto and furious velocity which pounds with intense grooves and CANNIBAL CORPSE-esquire vocalization. Thunderously relentless stimulation has an elegantly energetic persona that's just exquisitely salubrious. There is a lot of enlightening finesse with GUTSLIT; the band has a diverse variety of fulfilling enthusiasm.

Do you want to know what happens to an eyeball - when it gets punctured?

Maraschino Eyeballs” opens up with the above quote; expect only mayhem and a barrage of destructive components that will guarantee to get your headbanging fix. Seamlessly immense blast beasts drive my soul, desperately wanting to engage in on a battering mosh pit. “Scaphism” takes no prisoners, as it compiles more of those tasty hooks that grip my body to a metal - thrashing mad state. Overall concluding “Amputheatre” with the closing track: “Death Hammer”, I am compelled to say that GUTSLIT recorded an extremely adequate deliverance of coherently artistic benefits. If you're looking for a new Brutal Death Metal experience from another country; look no further – the band will exceed your original expectations, and distribute a concrete performance of vast delicacies and professionalism. It's an almost masterful record that all Metal maniacs will relish in, go check it out!
