If you haven’t heard about CUT UP or their debut album, Forensic Nightmares well… You’re welcome. This 11 song album had me foaming at the mouth and why would it?! CUT UP rose from the ashes of Vomitory’s final lineup. Vomitory disbanded in late 2013 after 24 years of death metaling. The band was founded by drummer Tobias Gustafsson and vocalist/bassist Erik Rundqvist in early 2014.
Cut Up wasn’t complete yet, not until former Coldworker guitarist Anders Bertilsson and former Fetus Wrench guitarist/vocalist Andreas Björnson came into the fold. The band’s debut album, Forensic Nightmares is gut wrenching DEATH METAL. It is everything you would expect from over 20 years of experiance of playing and loving metal/death metal. The first two songs, “Enter Hell” and “Burial Time” are the perfect way to kick you in the teeth from the get go particularly the opening of “Enter Hell”. If you want something more than speed the track “Remember The Flesh”, will satisfy your need for something groovy and slam-ey. My personal favorite from this album is “Brain Cell Holocaust” EVERYTHING about that song you need to know is in the title. If you have yet to pick up this album you should. It is my favorite new death metal album for this year. Forensic Nightmares debuted on Metalblade June 30th 2015.
