Praise be to Suffocation and the likes of Cannibal Corpse, along with the mighty Malevolent Creation, but in the early nineties Gorguts ‘Considered Dead’ put the b.r.u.t.a.l in brutal. This album will punish your skull as any large metal slab or concrete block would. This album also showcases one of the finest laryngitis-infected throats in the history of the genre. ‘Erosion of Sanity’ has a few immediately satisfying tracks, but this album is a bit more sculptured than ‘Considered Dead.’ If ‘Considerd Dead’ was the large chunks of stone cut from the torso and limbs, ‘Erosion of Sanity’ would be the fine grains carved from the rib-cage and eye sockets. Put this album on your list, right between the milk and bananas.
