Old school death metal supergroup Gruesome – which brings together Exhumed’s Matt Harvey on vocals, ex-Malevolent Creation drummer Gus Rios, Possessed guitarist Daniel Gonzalez, and Derketa bassist Robin Mazen – have debuted the title track off their upcoming debut Savage Land. Rios comments:
“What was to become ‘Savage Land’ started out as a kind of funny sounding guitar pro demo, complete with midi drums. [guitarist/vocalist] Matt [Harvey] had already sent me his first demo song, but this was the track that sent me into a renewed sense of excitement for playing metal! It sounded like a lost Death demo from ’88-’89! I knew right then and there that I would see this project through to completion. Most people have already heard the demo version, so this album track will really showcase the upgraded production value of the full length.”
Savage Land is set for release on April 17th in Germany, Benelux and Finland and April 20th in the UK and rest of the world, and April 21st in North America through Relapse Records. Physical copies of the album can be found here and digital pre-orders here.
