Vore is a Death Metal band from Arkansas. The vocals are sometimes a bit too guttural for my taste but Ive heard much worse. Things are better musically however. The band favors heavy, crunching guitars rather than partaking in a speed contest. I find it a bit hard to compare them to other bands, but I guess I could say they are somewhere between Immolation and The Chasm, with maybe a bit of AJFA-era Metallica (beat-wise on a song or two) as far as the sound goes. I particularly like the guitars, some riffs are a bit catchy and there are a couple of solos that stand out as well. While I dont hear much here that I havent heard before, this is quite a good album to listen to. There is one song thats nearly 10 minutes in length and is all acoustic... Thats the downside in my opinion. This kind of track is Ok if it doesnt exceed one minute, but past that, its overdoing it. Im not too sure what the band was trying to do here. I found myself skipping over it most of the time, depending on my mood (or whether or not I was near the CD player - hehe. ;))
Overall, above average DM with very few shortcomings, and getting rid of the
10 minutes song mentionned above would be an improvement as far as Im concerned.
Recommended for those who like their Death Metal heavy and slow to mid-paced.
