While it's pretty well-known I'm not a huge fan of the "Gore-Metal" genre, the ones that do it well deserve some praise. Avulsed have always delivered solid efforts and this new one is more of the same. "Gorespattered" mixes it up quite a bit between some chuggy, death riffing and speedy runs. The added melodic moments suprised me and elevated the tunes above your run-of-the-mill cadavar bands out there.
Obviously Avulsed isn't re-inventing the wheel here. Some tunes sound similar and the gore lyrics get old pretty fast. I have to say that for any fault I find in this music the end result is all that matters and these guys pen some downright killer metal overall. ("Protervia" and "Let Me Taste Your Flesh" are as good as it gets in ANY genre people!) Throw in a fine production job from Hate Eternal's Erik Rutan and a cool cover of Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" and you have a solid release from one of Spain's best metal outfits.
