Location: Oakland, California
Band: Golem of Gore
Split: Haggus / Golem of Gore - split MC
Format: Cassette, streaming
Label: Fuck Your Life Records, Grindfather Productions
Release date: June 2020
While scrolling the interwebs I stumbled upon another vicious goregrind banger. The 2020 split between Haggus and Golem of Gore! Mincey gory awesomeness paired with Last Days of Humanity worship grind obviously makes for an ear-feed of liquid fun. And to be honest, the Golem of Gore on this release is not as straight forward. I am hearing a lot of different influence on this one as opposed to previous releases. Either way, it is an absolute pile of goodness!
I cannot pick which band did a better job on this split. Each side is absolute mastery and I would insist that fans of the gore indulge in this one when they come across it. This is purely underground and is leaning on perfection... God, I fucking love goregrind!
Both Golem of Gore and Haggus have come a long way since I first started listening to them. I could ramble further, but I think you all get the point. Goregrind > everything is the vibe I am digging recently and I don't think that is going to change any time soon.
So fire up the barbecue, grill some animals (or veggie burgers for the vegans), and throw on this cavernous sickness.
