FDA Rekotz is set to release Desechos Humanos from death-grind surgeons Goregast. The third album from these German maniacs is a direct attack against humanity’s rotten core. The reviews for their previous albums Vive El Animal and La Ravencha are really good. I did dip into a few of their tracks on the previous releases, and they are nothing short of madness. There is a lot of continuation in terms of musical ideas and consistency in structures. Goregast’s latest album, Desechos Humanos, is a pure, brutal mixture of old school death metal and bone-crushing grind core.
Goregast can be compared with a lot of bands; but at the end of the day, they have their own style and identity. The title track starts with a good suspense movie intro, and slowly gets to the main business of crushing music. The vocals are as good as a demon screaming and the guitar is a bit slow, packed with superb rhythm. The drumming towards the middle of the track is pretty fast, so the entire song picks up the pace and gives a great touch to the song. “Puerco De Dinero” is a racy song with all the instruments flying around in all directions. It is a really good headbanging song. I guess some of the songs are in German. Goregast have come up with yet another killer sleeve. The artwork is done pretty well, and is gory to the core!
The dual-vocal assault and punk overtones wouldn’t be unfamiliar to the fans of Goregast. Despite the clear and present grind influence on this record, there’s not much in the way of blasting; if anything, this operates quite similarly to a super updated and streamlined version of old NYDM or Swedish death metal, with dark, ominous mid-paced riffs taking up a lot of the music.
Goregast has an incredible knack for writing simple, catchy mid-paced death metal riffs, which is a good thing as they take up most of the album. The production is really good overall; but in some places, mixing takes a beating as it sounds a bit skewed up. Not able to listen to some of the blast beats but it does not take away anything from this band. The riffing style is dark and somewhat dissonant and manages to be catchy and great despite its absolute simplicity. Overall, Goregast has not disappointed a bit and is a must for many new death metal fans!!!
