Lord Gore

In comparison to the last few weeks, this one is rather short on the new metal front. And honestly, I’m not mad about it. A time to breathe a bit is a good time indeed. Anyway, the deathgrind supergroup of sorts, Lord Gore, are back after a 15 year break and they’re as sickening as ever, blackened death metal commandos Trench Warfare rage against religion on their full length debut, and Strappado leave nothing to the imagination on their brutal, torture inspired death metal debut – I mean, just look at that album art below. 

Beyond that, it’s a varied offering this week with rock and grind and even a little something for the maggots. Head inside to get the scoop.
