PUTRID OFFAL – Mature Necropsy (CD)
France’s Putrid Offal specializes in old school gore death metal with tons of grinding beats to demoralize the listener in their tracks. These guys are pretty freaking disgusting and morbidly sick, but experiment with original ideas. They’ve Gregorian Monks chanting in the background on the track “Garroting Way”, while the music is blasting its way through. This is track is very killer, indeed. “Repulsive Corpse” has that goregrind attitude, but show their Slayer-esque lead assault and Cannibal Corpse type of guttural torture.
Having been around since 1991, Putrid Offal has been at it quite long, and the proof is in their intense brand of grinding gore death. With 13 songs to their rotting name, I wonder how they can keep with such raw brutality and come across sounding so damn good. I’d love to see this band live in concert cause I am sure they tear it up in front of the audience.
Furthermore, their demonic vocals come across, as if they’re some bestial entity cut lose from the bowels of hell. Yes, the vocals are very twisted and utterly sick on “Mature Necropsy”, but then again, who wants to hear wimpy vocals on goregrind records anyways.
Just the early 1990s death, goregrind sound makes Putrid Offal such a strong contender within the death metal scenes around the world, as can be heard here. They’ve so much firepower with their wickedly perverse and fast drumming, you can literally feel the explosive residue all over you. Listen to Putrid Offal’s “Mature Necropsy” at your own risk.
