Gruesome burst into our hearts last year with their high powered sound featuring an all star lineup and a whole lot of death worship. Well guess what? They are back and better than ever. He band who blew us away wit an album that could have been a sequel to Leprosy have returned with yet another release that serves as a proud tribute to the original masters. As easy as it might be to poopoo what Gruesome have done here, you've got to give it to these guys, they are great performers and are capturing the magic of a sound that changed our lives.
Asides from the fact that the musicianship and the songwriting is top notch, you've got to give Gruesome points for enthusiasm. Not only are they prolific as hell, but they understand metals youthful love of death. The grinding magic of these songs an the perfection of the guitar tone only serves as the first level of heavy metal madness to be pouring out from these geniuses. Beyond that, the band has figured out the perfect execution that gives them just enough of their own flavor to keep things interesting. The level at which the members of Gruesome have digested Schuldiners teachings is endlessly impressive and will get your head banging and horns waving.
Dimensions Of Horror is an EP that you are going to want to come back to time and time again because it is fun,powerful and concise. Every riff fucking slays and every guitar solo has that wonderful singable quality that made Chuck's playing so great. Mat Harvey and the gang have outdone themselves with music that reminds us just how far of the game Death was at every phase of their careers. So dive on in to the rip roaring good time presented here, and try and tell me that you're not totally in love with the sound.
