No, “The Foul Stench of Vomiting Blood” is not a tender ballad. But whatever you may guess about the music from the title, you’re probably still not going to be prepared for what hits you. But we’ll come back to that momentarily.
The song is one of nine on Kuebiko, the new album by the Finnish horde Gloria Morti, which will be released on the 18th of March by the band’s new label, Willowtip Records. This is the band’s fourth album in a career that began in 1999, and it is INTENSE.
The album’s title, as explained by the band, is a word that represents “a state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence, which force you to revise your image of what can happen in this world — mending the fences of your expectations, weeding out all unwelcome and invasive truths, cultivating the perennial good that’s buried under the surface, and propping yourself up like an old scarecrow, who’s bursting at the seams but powerless to do anything but stand there and watch”.
