Murph It's come to my understanding that if you're going to try and replicate an influential band, you make it stupidly accurate to the point where the lines are blurred between the original artist and the torch bearer. In other words, GRUESOME are the best Death-worship band there will ever be, bar none. Favorite track: Hideous.

Tradición Metálica The best tribute band in the fuckin' world. Period. Chuck would be proud. Favorite track: Hideous.

Matthew Toye Gruesome provide a modern day time warp back to late '80's death metal. An intentional Death tribute band that pays respect to the ground breaking forefathers. Chuck would love this. Favorite track: Closed Casket.

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

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

Demonized 05:35
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

Hideous 05:07
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

Gangrene 05:28
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
6.
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
7.
Psychic Twin 02:44
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
8.
Gruesome 04:15
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

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.
