Year: 2016

As it is well-known, Gruesome is a death metal project born out of guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Dekapitator) and drummer Gus Rios (ex- Malevolent Creation). These two death metal gentlemen, together with Possessed guitarist Daniel Gonzalez and Derketa bassist Robin Mazen, recorded their debut “Savage Land” in 2015; the debut received total respect and excellent reviews worldwide, dedicated to Death’s early material and sounding similar to “Leprosy” as a tribute to this legendary diamond!

For me, heretically, was just an easy listening album and nothing more. I convinced myself to wait for their second release before criticizing the band and forming a full opinion. Their second strike, the E.P. “Dimensions of Horror” has just been released and is bound to bring back the rotten air ”Scream Bloody Gore” has bred decades ago – Lord forgive me for I have sinned. Here, we are talking about a death metal masterpiece. Song-writing is much better compared to their debut, death metal beats are non-stop, and the atmosphere is rotten – no doubt what the band intended! Six songs, every single one actually being better than the previous. No highlights here, but an old school death metal ceremony! The artwork is once again designed by Ed Repka, and it is as close as it can be to the album’s concept: amazing music, attitude and aestheticism, just the way the pioneer Chuck Schuldiner taught us how death metal should sound and look like.

There is nothing more to be said, Well Done Guys!!!
