I'm done with the day's football related TV. It's all well and good getting excited about the start of the Premier League season but it doesn't half lead to procrastination. That's probably why I've elected to review this happy bunch! Engorgement are from around the Hampshire/Suffolk area in Southern England and have been playing brutal, violence filled death metal since 2009. Excruciating Intestinal Lacerations was released in 2012 via US death-metal label Comatose Music, which was also the bands debut release.
1. Ejaculation Over Defiled Human Remains
2. Paraplegic Punch Bag
3. Cranial Devourment
4. Fornicating The Disfigured
5. Putrefying Colonic Irrigation
6. Excruciating Intestinal Lacerations
7. Full Body Prolapse
People who listen to brutal death will know that while the vocals don’t lend themselves too well to recorded formats, they manage to sound brilliant in a live setting alongside the slam that backs them up. I’ve certainly come to appreciate live death metal a lot more over the past few months. Engorgement are pretty damn heavy and while the aforementioned vocals sit high in the mix on Excruciating Intestinal Lacerations, they are backed up by some fast as hell bass-heavy grooves and beatdowns.
There is no bandcamp page or stream for the band or label, but the full album is streaming on Youtube below:-
Someone needs to get this up on bandcamp for others too enjoy. I'll do it if needs be (with permission from the band and label of course!).
