How Does This 4th Studio Album From Avulsed Begin?

Spanish death metal veterans Avulsed really captured my interest with their awesome 1999 studio album called Stabwound Orgasm. Their 4th studio album called Gorespattered Suicide really takes things beyond an extreme level with album titles like that. The title track is the first song of this album and the tapping style drums and guttural vocals of David Sanchez Gonzalez immediately kick in. After some more grunts, the heavy guttural vocals continue and this is a typical pattern for Avulsed. Immediately, I hear an influence from the song Exorcismo Vaginal.

This Album is Good Death Metal But the Lyrical Content May Be Too Much For Some Listeners To Handle

Burnt But Not Carbonized is a song that has melody in it for sure and it may as well be about cannibalism. Filth Injected is the 3rd song of this extreme metal album and it sees Avulsed explore new territory as there is a synth like feel similar to Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy.

After a very brief song if we can call it that, comes the 5th song called 4 n Sick which lyrically is about experimenting with cadavers. This song in terms of its riffing reminds me a little bit of the song Exorcismo Vaginal. The riffing and the lyrics are so nasty that this album may be described as nasty for nasty’s sake but for fans of extreme metal, this album is worth listening to and appreciating. The drums while not like the double bass drumming of Cannibal Corpse are somewhat dirty in terms of the beats.

Big Disadvantage of the Album Is the Album's Title

The first kind of complaint I have is because of the album title. I know that this is extreme metal but the album’s title itself is over the top and it could cause some fans to not want to listen to these guys. However, for those of you that decide to give these Spanish death metal veterans a chance, you have made a good choice because the riffing fits in well with the guttural vocals.

"Hoax Therapy"

How is the Rest of the Album?

Finally we listeners get to hear an instrumental song from these guys called Hoax Therapy which has symphonic elements! They have come far from their earlier days when they were experimenting with technical industrial death metal. There is also at the end of the song a harpsichord kind of sound. There is a song called Divine Wine that lyrically is about a special kind of wine that has dark red tones, is subtle in flavor and described as fruity. Eat Foetal Mush is a very melodic song about a person that is destined to pay the price for his betrayal. His life is thought to be a lie. If you have been able to get this far by being able to handle and tolerate an extreme metal album such as this, consider yourself fortunate, tough, and brave because it is not easy to do. In spite of the melodies and heavy riffing, the album is not as good as what this band made in 1999. Even so, this is a fine work of death metal from these Spanish guys.
