Exhumed-GoreMetal-ANecrospective1998-2015Slider
Within the surprising plethora of Metal re-recordings we find Gore Metal: A Necrospective (1998-2015) from San Jose, California’s Exhumed. Their story is pretty much cemented even within Pop culture, having taken the initial Goregrind concepts laid out on early Carcass albums and giving them a much more violent Death Metal presence that was unique at the time they broke through thanks to the support of Relapse Records’ handling of their debut full-length album, Gore Metal in 1998. Of course, prior to that, the band had unleashed eight different splits, not to mention six demos that pre-date it. After a number of wildly successful releases, Exhumed disbanded in 2005, only to reunite in 2010 and get right back to writing and recording new material, unleashing two brand new albums alongside some splits and singles. But, for 2015, the band took a step back and eyed up their debut outing once more. The end result is that very album re-recorded and re-tiitled Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015 through the very label that made it available on store shelves all those years. But is this new take a far better experience, or is it one that simply didn’t need to happen?

With Dissident Clone‘s brand new EP due shortly, Apoch’s Metal Review has teamed up with Dewar PR once again to bring you the debut stream of “Waiting to Collapse”! The first track from State of Dysphoria is brought to us by drummer Chad Brunsell and guitarist/vocalist Patrick Morris, both of which compatriots in the group Wraith. I was also given the chance to shoot some interview questions over to the band, which were answered by the latter of those two. Check out what Patrick had to say below as you bang your head to the release’s opening track!

Moonspell-ExtinctSlider
With the new Moonspell album dropping soon, I finally got the chance to check out the full-length. I don’t really want to go into much detail about it, but I did feel I should talk about my first impressions of the new outing to brace fellow fans for what’s to come. Extinct definitely wasn’t what I was expecting, but, then again, Moonspell never has been a band to really approach with preconceived expectations other than quality music. So, without farther ado, here’s some thoughts on the new venture…
