Gutslit - Skewered In The Sewer

Brutal death grind from Mumbia, India. Gutslit: current and past members include Gurdip - Bass (2007-), Aditya Barve - Vocals (2011-), Prateek Rajagopal - Guitars (2013-), Aaron Pinto - Drums (2011-). Skewered In The Sewer album released July 2013. Current labels Coyote Records (Russia), Ghastly Music (Japan).

Opening track Prelude to Putrification is a dark and twisted intro, like a demon rising from beneath deep waters preparing to attack. Pustulated Phallic Enthrallment, nice title. Churning crushing bones type of intro before slamming into the brutality. Relentless onslaught right from the first riffs. Thinking Skinless, early Dying Fetus, Gorgasm or Gorefest influences. Offal Barter, drums are grinding and plenty of guitar sweep arpeggios to delight most gore-hounds. Circumcised With A Chainsaw, sounds bloody, painful and messy. Stomping guitar rhythm and high pitched harmonics paint the sonic landscape for this torturous song. Haemorrhoidal Brain Custard, title sounds like something no human would want to experience. The bass lines are dominant for this song. Rolling double kicks keep everything at a high speed without loosing any velocity. Pulp Face, funny and sadistic intro followed by more brutality. Maze of Entrails, reminds me of early Suffocation albums like Effigy or Seeds of Suffering. Final and closing track Skewered In The Sewer, from fast grinds to slow slamming head smashing feelings, this is the best way to close this beast of an album.

In conclusion, fans of Devour The Unborn, Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Skinless and Gorguts will want to make this album part of their collection. Non stop brutality from beginning till the end.
Look for this band performance live at the Obscene Extreme fest in 2014.
