This week I parachuted into the SAVAGE LAND where flesh-eating humanoids dwell to grab a chat with the band GRUESOME. These fiends are aptly named, given their devotion to carnage and gore. They are a heart-felt tribute to the early albums of the immortal DEATH and helping to keep that style alive for new generations! I spoke to a very chatty and friendly drummer GUS RIOS about this sadistic bunch. We had a fun talk that was a nostalgic romp through the early days of the death metal scene, covering subjects likely how closely Gruesome adhered to the laws of Death, the inevitable association with cover artist Ed Repka and what it's like to be an analog band in a digital world! Get ready to chew the fat (and skin and muscle) with Gus right HERE!

We also have a short and sweet live concert review of the mighty SEPULTURA on their 30th Anniversary tour with Germany's DESTRUCTION, tech-metallers ARSIS and more. The esteemed SGT. DETH does the honors, which you can observe HERE!

And then there's the ever-lovin' Torture Chamber, which features big new reviews of ARMORED SAINT, ANTIGAMA and more...

ARMORED SAINT                                                           "Win Hands Down"
