Re-issue celebrating the 20th anniversary of the classic debut EP by one of Europe's most authentic Death Metal bands. Includes 8 bonus tracks, remastered sound and revamped design with liner notes. Death Metal in its purest form!!
Avulsed is one of those magical death metal bands who've been around for the better part of three decades and have the kind of unholy dedication to gore and brutality that made the old school scene so wonderful. Sure, this re-release of their classic Carnivoracity is nine kinds of fucked up, but ultimately, that's the beauty of the thing. As you feel the harsh growls and hyper speed riffs kick in it's hard not to acknowledge the primal glory of this band. Sure, Avulsed may sound subhuman, and their lyrical content may be gruesome, but in all honesty, it just adds to the glory.
There is something perverse about the mesmerizing melodic lines in these tracks. Avulsed capture the same sort of attraction to death that the American news media seems to have. What's important to note about this re-release though is that not only does it feature the expertly remixed original EP it also gives us lots of great live recordings. Avulsed are clearly metal lords, and the live stuff shows that despite it all, they are still out for a good time. On top of this is the added treat of an extra Brujeria cover (Which is also a live version) it gives this special edition a memorable closer. What I'm trying to stay is that there really is no better way than this to honor the breadth and majesty of Avulsed's career.
In closing we are left with eleven tracks (and an outro) that seem to speak to the eternal power of a genre that most fear. As Avulsed blast their way through these songs its easy to find the fascination with gore that led the band to become one of the biggest on their scene. It's impossible to listen to Carnivoracity and not want to start a circle pit. Avulsed understand the spirit of death metal and they get how to bring it to the people. This is the kind of band who make the underground so great, so why don't you just come right on over and feel the magic?
