That was fucking quick!
Relapse Records has signed death metal supergroup Gruesome.
The band, of course, features Matt Harvey of Exhumed as well as drummer Gus Rios (formerly of Malevolent Creation), guitarist Daniel Gonzalez (Possessed), and bassist Robin Mazen (Derketa).
The band literally just formed a couple of months ago as a tribute to the music of Death.
We reported on it here.
The quartet quickly recorded a demo that gained a lot of buzz for its true to form display of late ’80s and early ‘90s Floridian death metal.
The band will be heading to Florida this summer to record their debut full-length which is slated for an early 2015 release via Relapse.
Says Matt Harvey:
“We’re very psyched to be joining the Relapse roster. Their support in our mission to keep the early Death sound alive means a lot, especially since they’re the home of the Death catalog. We’ll be entering the studio in (where else?) Florida very soon to wrap up a record by the end of summer for an early 2015 release. We can’t wait for all of you mutants out there to check it out. We assure you it’ll be utterly Gruesome (see what I did there?). Cheers!”
Here’s some of the band’s music:
