(Here’s Vonlughlio’s review of the latest album, released this past spring by Amputated Vein Records, by the Italian slamming brutal death metal band Gangrenectomy.)
The Italian metal scene is responsible for giving us great bands such as Devangelic, Putridity, Vulvectomy, Hour of Penance, Blasphemer, and Hideous Divinity, just to name a few (that I love). And this time around I would like to take the opportunity to speak about one more, an underground project named Gangrenectomy that I recently discovered this year.
I have to say that at first I was a little bit hesitant to check them out since their music is BDM that leans toward the slam side, and there are a lot of bands in that vein that just don’t do anything for me. Regardless, I decided to go with an open mind and checked out their second album, Cannibalistic Criteria of the Mantis, which was released early this year via Amputated Vein Records.
