Haem­or­rhage WE ARE THE GORE

RE­LAPSE MADRID’S GOREMONGERS GET A BOOST FROM SOME NEW BLOOD

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums - OLIVIER BADIN

While much of to­day’s grind­gore scene is too of­ten the sonic equiv­a­lent of a sense­less snuff movie, th­ese Spanish vet­er­ans have al­ways had more in com­mon with the Grand Guig­nol tra­di­tion. In­stead of the same old tired movie in­tros and OTT lyrics only meant to make you puke, they’d rather make body parts fly and crush brains while crack­ing up dark tales and jokes. Haem­or­rhage even came up with their own mas­cot – a car­toon­ish pathol­o­gist drawn by found­ing mem­ber, gui­tar player and comic book lover Luisma. Their sev­enth (s)plat­ter still re­mains faith­ful to both their early Car­cass and Im­petigo in­flu­ences, while their twominute nuggets con­tinue to up­hold their punk ethic. The ar­rival of a new, younger and pure death metal-trained drum­mer and up­graded gui­tar so­los now touch­ing on classic metal have max­imised their im­pact ten­fold, mak­ing this their best meal yet.
