about

GRUESOME's debut 'Savage Land' is an intentional homage to the first wave death metal scene of Tampa, Florida, specifically Death's early period. GRUESOME is much more than a tribute band though. Led by Matt Harvey (of Exhumed, Matt was the vocalist and guitarist on the original Death To All tour) and rounded out by a band comprised of members of Possessed, Malevolent Creation and Derketa, GRUESOME sound like they were plucked right out of 1988. This is an absolutely top notch filthy slab of old school death metal, played by the some of the scene's most legit players.

Track Name: Savage Land
Isolated primitives

Brutal way of life they live

Ritual of sacrifice

Victims are consumed alive

Uncivilized, a distant land

Untouched by ways, of modern man

Tie you down, and make you bleed

Upon your bones, they soon will feed

Savage land of brutal gore

Never should have been explored

As your limbs they carve and hack

You know you're never coming back

Savage land, where you will die

Never understanding why

Headhunter sharpens his knife

Drawing near to take your fucking life

Their ways, best left undisturbed

Your tortured cries, will go unheard

Guitar solo - Dan

Guitar solo - Gus

Tied and bound to bloody stakes

Death and life, is theirs to take

What means so much to you and me

They destroy so easily

Uncivilized, a distant land

Untouched by ways, of modern man

Tie you down, and make you bleed

Upon your bones, they soon will feed

Savage land of brutal gore

Never should have been explored

As your limbs they carve and hack

You know you're never coming back

Savage land, where you will die

Never understanding why

Headhunter sharpens his knife

Drawing near to take your fucking life
Track Name: Trapped In Hell
A doorway into darkness

A puzzle to unlock

Discover realms of madness

Entered through the box

Solve the box, unlock the door

To a world of terror, death and gore

Sadistic twisted creatures

From netherworlds beyond

Offer sickening pleasures

For you to feast upon

Pleasure turns to pain

You will not return again

Trapped in hell

Scream in agony

Trapped in hell

Forever you will be

Trapped in hell

Guitar solo - Dan

Guitar solo – Gus / Matt

Labyrinth of horrors

No escape in sight

A place of gory torture

And never ending night

Hooks tear through, your bleeding flesh

Hear them laugh, as you plead for death

See skin flayed from bodies

Gouged eyes look on

Leviathan awakes

To drag you down beyond

Pleasure turns to pain

You will not return again

Trapped in hell

Scream in agony

Trapped in hell

Forever you will be

Trapped in hell
Track Name: Demonized
Your mind, no longer your own

Within your thoughts, evil powers grow

It takes hold of your soul

Never to let go

Raped by darkness, you writhe in pain

Holy pages, now burn in flames

Speak in ancient tongues

Words of hate come spilling forth

Evil's work is done

In its thrall forevermore

An innocent mind

No longer divine - Demonized

Vomit, on the cross

Undead whores, sucking cock

Your soul, is raped and torn

In Satan's name, you are reborn

Guitar solo - Dan

Twisted, infested by evil and death

Blasphemies, spewed 'til your last breath

It takes hold of your soul

Never to let go

Raped by darkness, you writhe in pain

Holy pages, burn in hell's flames

Speak in ancient tongues

Words of hate come spilling forth

Evil's work is done

In its thrall forevermore

An innocent mind

No longer divine

Demonized

Guitar solo – Dan
Track Name: Hideous
Orphaned by society

To a human menagerie

A normal life they'll never lead

Condemned to dwell in mockery

Twisted features greet you

Calling you to come inside

Wretched sights await you

Avert your gaze so horrified

Some distorted, mentally

Live lives in, obscurity

Stricken by, deformity

Amusements sold, to you and me

The sights that you will see within

Livid flesh, misshapen limbs

Vacant stare a grotesque gaze

Protruding from a wretched face so -

Hideous

Freakish nature on display

Hideous

Turn your eyes and look away

Hideous

Oddities of yesterday

Hideous

They never asked to be this way

Guitar solo – Matt

Guitar solo – Dan

Born conjoined to this fate

Deformed, twisted rancid state

Turn in fear toward the gate

Leave here before it's too late

Twisted features greet you

Calling you to come inside

Wretched sights await you

Avert your gaze so horrified

Some distorted, mentally

Live lives in, obscurity

Stricken by, deformity

Amusements sold, to you and me

The sights that you will see within

Livid flesh, misshapen limbs

Vacant stare a grotesque gaze

Protruding from a wretched face so -

Hideous

Freakish nature on display

Hideous

Turn your eyes and look away

Hideous

Oddities of yesterday

Hideous

They never asked to be this way
Track Name: Gangrene
Death is pulsing, from within

Crawling through, your sickly skin

Fingers clutch life as it fades

Slowly turn from green to gray

Tissue death, bones are revealed

Necrosis spreads, your fate is sealed

Your morbid limbs, wither away

Even as you live, you decay

The time has passed, to amputate

Rotting alive, your grisly fate -

Gangrene

Guitar solos - Dan

Hands and feet, now memories

Bones and meat, is all you see

Facial features rotted through

Death closing its grip on you

Tissue death, bones are revealed

Necrosis spreads, your fate is sealed

Your morbid limbs, wither away

Even as you live, you decay

The time has passed, to amputate

Rotting alive, your grisly fate -

Gangrene
Track Name: Closed Casket
Gruesome death, too horrible to bear

The coffin sealed, a hellish sight we're spared

Turn, and look away

From the face, of decay

Morbid thoughts, buried just beneath

The mockery, of a funeral wreath

Dismembered, memories

Of a life, that used to be

Death lies waiting just beyond

A rotting corpse left when they're gone

Open grave to seal them in

They will never rise again

Closed casket

Guitar solo - James

Horrid fate, to which we all are doomed

To leave this life, and enter the tomb

The grave, is never far away

Your end, may be today?

Death lies waiting just beyond

A rotting corpse left when they're gone

Open grave to seal them in

They will never rise again

Closed casket
Track Name: Psychic Twin
Inside his mind – a presence lurks, seeking control

No outward sign – as it silently strengthens its hold

Buried deep within

Darkness creeping toward the skin

Twisting his thoughts – dwelling on the cold and the dead

Sanity rots – visions drenched in red

Losing his grip on reality

Death is all he can see

Raise the axe

Scream out for blood

Evil buried within

Psychic twin

Trail of bodies left behind

How could they be so blind?

Hidden from his own eyes

A morbid truth beneath the lies

Guitar solo - Dan

Guitar solo - Gus

Now fully awake – the violence that no one suspects

Lives he will take – the person they least expect

No one ever knew

The evil that slowly grew

Raise the axe

Scream out for blood

Evil buried within

Psychic twin
Track Name: Gruesome
Rising heaps of bodies, immolated dead

The hellish stench of corpses, burning black and red

Rituals to re-animate, gravestones bleed

Unholy initiate, demon seed

Enter realms of desolation

Accursed hellscape

Gouge out your eyes in desperation

You know there's no escape – no escape!

Corpses feed upon your flesh, haunting death – Gruesome

Drink the blood they now let flow, drag your soul below – Gruesome

Trapped in hell, in pain you cry, now you beg to die – Gruesome

Zombie masters you now serve, in this hell on earth - Gruesome

Guitar solo – Gus

Guitar solo – Dan

Guitar solo - Gus

Guitar solo – Dan

Carved upon the altar, sacrifice by suicide

Hooks rend you to pieces, a grisly way to die

Holy man hangs rotting, a dark day dawns

Undead rise to sacrifice, the newly born

Cannibals surround you

Closing in for the feast

Body parts strewn all around you

Soon you'll be deceased – deceased!

Pages inked in human blood, evil conquers good – Gruesome

Armies of the dead command, blood flows though the land – Gruesome

Vomit from the rancid smell, controlled by evil spells - Gruesome

Staring at your severed head, you are dead - Gruesome
