Once again I’ve been brought to the Gore Grinder account on YouTube. With a quick search I stumbled upon Carcinosis – “Death and the Subsequent Anatomical Decomposition”. I figured this would be a good listening choice as I had recently listened to the debut EP from Cerebral Suppuration -- a Lymphatic Phlegm worship band featuring the same members as Carcinosis.
First off the intro was highly intriguing. It was long and drawn out but was a great prelude to the carnage that is held within this album. Grunts and gurgles and vile vocalizations mix with down-tuned guitars and what sounds to me like a well-programmed drum machine/drum loops. It is all brought together to make a sound that is highly pleasurable to listen to and even though this is a standard blast of goregrind everything is done well.
Just like Cerebral Suppuration, this act hails from Paraguay. This is a debut album—and as a first blast of gore, I can say I’d be more than content to hear more from these guys. This was self-released in digital format in 2022. There is a CDR format available through Ceruminosis Production and a tape is available through Purple Pus Tapes!
In conclusion, this was an ample example of what good goregrind should sound like…and even though I listened to this through a free stream I’d heartily suggest snagging a CDR or a cassette. Supporting the underground is something that needs to be done — and if you can’t buy a cassette or a CDR—maybe send the band some kind words! -Devin J. Meaney
