The debut "Savage Land" by Gruesome is an homage to the "first wave Of Death metal" scene from Tampa/Florida (especially the early creations of death). However, Gruesome is more than a tribute band. With features of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and Derketa the band acts experienced and sends the listener back to the glorious late 80s. The iconic cover by Ed Repka completes the output perfectly.
This is a sold death metal release which is very similar to early Death releases. Each song are very much well written with overall tunes replicating what Death offered during their earlier days. Superb album! Recommended for fans of Death!
