Lord Gore/The Autophagous Orgy
This week's update By: Vile     visit dwf music forum
Buy it! From the song, “Rape Camp” -"We break down your front door and take you from your children. Your husband...we fucked his corpse with all our knives." and from the song “Last Supper” - "Peeled open your snatch like a roasted sandwich. Ripped out your asshole and drank your breastmilk."

Lord Gore/The Autophagous Orgy
Razorback Records

What is going on? Razorback have just been kicking ass lately, all of their recent releases have been amazing. Lord Gore easily continues as another quality band for RR. I wouldn't know how to describe them, so I'll let the band speak for themselves. Guitarist REGURGIPHILE calls the band, "Misogynistic Grudgefuck Goregrind". Vocalist NEKRO VON GORE says it's, "disgusting, sick, ex-girlfriend hating, necroporncore-metal!" Perfect descriptions from both, but you really have to hear them for yourself.

First, this CD has one of my favorite covers of all time. Drawn by Japanese artist Waita Uziga, it details anime babes ripping each other open and eating their insides whilst having sex. Awesome. I ordered this CD with a T-shirt of theirs and it unfortunately didn't feature the cover on it, but oh well. Just don't flash this one around your parents.

Second, this band has some of the sickest vocals I have ever heard. I couldn't believe when I read in the slipcover that "ABSOLUTELY NO PITCH SHIFTING, HARMONIZER, CUPPING, OR ANY OTHER VOCAL MODULATION USED IN LORD GORE. 100% NATURAL SICKNESS!!!" Lord Gore have dual vocal work (one guy for high screams and one guy for low grunts), and this lower guy is fucking insane. The vocals don't even sound like they come from a human, it sounds like some disgusting animalistic growl that I absolutely love. These are MUST HEAR GROWLS (especially on the song “Last Supper”), amazing shit right here. From the lyrics you can actually make out (since they oddly weren't included in the slipcover), the subjects seem to be more of the "I'll fuck your intestines" than the "I'll eat your brains" type. Examples : From the song, “Rape Camp” -"We break down your front door and take you from your children. Your husband...we fucked his corpse with all our knives." and from the song “Last Supper” - "Peeled open your snatch like a roasted sandwich. Ripped out your asshole and drank your breastmilk."

The "Headbang-ability" in 'The Autophagous Orgy' is high. The songs are heavy with an awesome groove. I found myself later humming the tunes to a few of their songs after listening for awhile. The gurgling growls, mixed with low guitars and varied drumming create fucking BRUTAL pieces of music. The entire album sounds great...especially for being recorded on the band's own 16-track recorder!!! They didn't step foot in a studio for recording this entire album, which truly kicks ass. Really awesome guitar solos which I didn't expect at all. Guitar work is somewhat technical, with quick picking and heavy riffing. Drumming isn’t just double-bass and snare pounded through the entire song as fast as possible. No, Lord Gore's music isn't set on "Super Fast" through the entire CD, they're more mid-tempo to even slow songs. The first song “Morguewhore” starts out sounding like a band warm-up, which is precisely what it is : Lord Gore are slowly preparing you for what is about to come.

Lord Gore make great use of short and funny samples in their songs. I recognized sound clips from the TV show 'OZ', a few from the movie 'Return Of The Living Dead', 'Trick Or Treat' and more. They'll not only use them to start off the brutality in their songs, but also put them suddenly in the middle of a track or as a nice outro. Not too many, just the right amount, although the last song is ended with a fucking 40min+ backwards sample looped over and over and over and over and over...

While certainly not for everyone, I would recommend Lord Gore to fans of the extreme. Awesome grind here, and the cover alone is worth buying a copy. It took a bit for me, but 'The Autophagous Orgy' grew on me quickly and I've easily come to love it. BUY IT!
