This is a breath of fresh air. Nearly anyone will agree with me, the festering pool of Brutal Death Metal today is getting so large it is really hard to find the diamonds in the rough. Bands today are usually only concerned with popularizing themselves with the "scene" that has apparently made Brutal Death popular; it is usually closely related to the Deathcore scene. More often than not, I find myself seeing shows that include both Brutal Death band and Deathcore bands, throwing most of both of these genres into a shithole.
Now that that's off my back I can say that this album fucking tears your face off. Not only does it constantly pound away at your eardrums, you will remember it and think some of the worst thoughts imaginable. This band uses the silly little samples from movies or other things, but this time people may have actually heard these before. With some of the most hilarious song titles one could think of, it also gives you insight as to how "brutal" the music is. What isn't original on this album? The vocals and drums, but there is nothing wrong with them really. The drums basically stick to the same beat the whole time while being brutal. The vocals fit perfectly with the sound of the music. The music is often times really heavy and chugging and the solos are actually quite jaw-dropping when proper attention is paid to them. Pinch harmonics are used frequently on this album.
So what new ideas does Gortuary bring to the table? Well they don't really bring anything new except a way to write Brutal Death Metal to make it memorable and flesh-ripping. Manic Thoughts of Perverse Mutilation will obliterate other bands in the genre and make them sound like nursery rhymes.
