Reborn from Hatred by Gory Blister

Gory Blister are a technical old-school death metal band from Italy, and their new album Reborn from Hatred is the catalyst for our poetic nightmares and horrific victories. It was produced by Raff Sangiorgio and Gianluca D’andria, mixed by Ricardo Borges (Sepultura, Kreator, Carcass), and mastered by Peter Brussee (Steve Vai, Yingwie Malmsteen, Michael Bolton). The band never tells us to play nice. The music screams for us to go hard, all the way, face-first into the den of our demons so we can wear their blood on our faces like war paint. A muse inspires artists to create, and Gory Blister shows us the way retool the darkness. The guitars on this record, while scorching, are patterned with such complexity, that there is a raucous intricacy to what is delivered as delicious and violent. The drum licks come in hurricanes of 4/4 and mixed meter time signatures, with the bass replacing our own pounding hearts. This is personal.

The first single off the album “Greedy Existence” begins with the Gory Blister signature chock ‘n gravel gallop that builds quickly to double time. The growl vocal is terrifying and versatile, sometimes brooding in the deepest register, and then reaching up to a powerful falsetto. Here, truth is discovered. Rockers rejoice. The second single “Relentless Fear” is the soundtrack to a beautiful nightmare, where there are monsters in the shadows, demons in the headlights, and a dark path leading to straight through the soul. It is for those who like heavy groove rhythm tracks and lead guitar in scorching layers overtop riffs that hit like a dagger-axe sunk in red meat. The third single “Push Out the Venom” is rhythmically filling like a beefsteak, but the eerie harmonies of the guitars make us the ones haunted and hunted by freaks in the fog, mutants in the slo-mo, and zombies commanded to “Rise from your graves.”

Gory Blister are not just playing music, but providing our soundtrack as we walk through the fire. There’s a zombie in the funhouse, and we’re going in with baseball bats. There’s a rabid jackal loose in the gift shop, and we’re going in with a net. There’s a circus clown slaughtering people in the freak tent, and we’re going in with machetes, broadswords, and Mineral Mountain Battle Hatchets. Reborn from Hatred by Gory Blister was released by Eclipse Records on September 8, 2023.
