EP Review: Meatcleaver "In The Flesh" (Independent) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Meatcleaver
Location: New England
Country: USA
Genre: Goregrind
Format: Digital
Label: Independent
Release date: December 10, 2023
Earlier on the day of writing this my music tastes changed from classic rock and roll to up-beat dance music. As always though—there came a point where I felt myself craving a blast of the gory stuff!
After a quick search (it was literally one of the first links I clicked) I found myself 2023’s “In The Flesh” by Meatcleaver!
First and foremost I need to say that musically I am reminded highly of the work by Pierre De Palmas, the mastermind behind Blue Holocaust and Vomi Noir. Vocally this is a bit different, and the grunts and gurgles are varied and sporadic. I can’t tell if every vocal is pitched, but either way, the vibes presented are entirely on point!
The guitar is low and simplistic but great. The drumming is tight, and everything meshes together to create something that is absolutely dripping with gore-tastic awesomeness!
This band is a two-piece from New England, USA. This is their debut EP that has currently only been released digitally. Fucking listen to it! -Devin J. Meaney
