(This is Vonlughlio’s review of the long-awaited second album by the Baltimore brutal death metal band Visceral Disgorge.)

This time around the subject is Slithering Evisceration, the long-awaited sophomore album by Visceral Disgorge (Baltimore, Maryland), released via Agonia Records on September 13th. This project was formed back in 2007. They released their debut album Ingesting Putridity in 2011 and that was well-received, gaining the band a lot of fans worldwide.  One of my favorite aspects from that record was the riffs of Steve Rosenzweig (R.I.P.), such an amazing musician who left us too early.

Thanks to the overall reaction to the first album and the massive following it produced, the band was able to tour quite a bit, and I was fortunate to see them at Chicago Domination Fest III in 2016. To say the least, their performance was among my favorites from that fest. They leveled the placed. That was not an easy task — Gorgasm, Lividity, Inherit Disease, and Malignancy played as well, and their performances were also among the best. So, I was quite impressed with the stage show of Visceral Disgorge. Continue reading »

I’m sitting in an airport, waiting on a plane, with a few minutes to kill. Just a few minutes, though. Just long enough to kill you with a song while I kill time.

The band is Visceral Disgorge, from Baltimore, Maryland. They released a debut album over the summer called Ingesting Putridity. Can you guess what the music will sound like, based on these clues: the name of the band; the name of the album; and the album cover? Here’s one more clue: The name of the song is “Necrocoprophagia”.

Let’s break that song title down: “Necro” is a Greek prefix meaning “death”. Copro is a prefix derived from the Greek word kopros, meaning “dung”. “Phagia” is a suffix, also derived from the Greek, which refers to the eating of a specified substance. “Coprophagia” means the eating of dung. Therefore, “necrocoprophagia” must mean eating the shit of the dead.

Do you have enough clues? If you guessed that this band plays brutal death metal, you would be correct. If you guessed that the music is the shit, you would also be correct, because it is. This band pulverizes, but they do it with flare and groove. Very, very nice.

This song, by the way, will be featured in the October edition of SickDrummer magazine and CD compilation. Go past the jump and let it kill you. My plane is boarding. Continue reading »
