listen to the complete album: Gorgosaur, anti-hipster death metal from Sweden

Gorgosaur (Sweden)
Lurking Among Corpses
Release: April 25th, 2016
Label: Memento Mori
The band proclaims "Death to hipsters!" and chooses to march along the path of traditional death metal. The entire album can be heard at the link below. This is a case of a band giving the listeners exactly what they promised: old death metal without hesitations. As you will read below, they wanted the sound of the age of the classics of the genre and have done their best to bring it all home.
OFFICIAL: Rabid Swedish death metal band Gorgosaur whip up an album that will shake the skin off your bones. Raw, filthy and caustic, these guys pay homage to the very pioneers of the style - Nihilist, Carnage, Dismember, Entombed and those like Necrony, Vermin and Nirvana 2002; they channel a sound that's devoid of melodies or anything that will interrupt their seething, rollicking momentum. Memento Mori label has a knack of finding such death metal gems, fostering them, enabling to release full length albums and this way strengthening the very foundation of the genre with renewed monolithic pillars. Gorgosaur boast of members of Deranged, RazorRape and Splattered Mermaids, and have procured the artistic talent of Mark Riddick for their artwork. Moreover, the album was recorded and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg at the legendary Sunlight Studio (Stockholm, Sweden) and mastered by Ted Tringo at The Ancient Way Mastering (U.S.A.). Clearly, this is not for the faint of heart but for those whose passion for old school death metal supersedes everything else. This is for the underground-mongers and they ought to revel in it. All hail the mighty Gorgosaur!
