Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)
Based on the album title and most song titles one would think Goregast are from some Spanish-speaking country, but surprisingly they're from Germany. And of course with a name like Goregast I was expecting some crappy Death/Grind with garbled vocals and music with no retention value. This is in fact some pretty decent old school Death Metal with a little dose of grindcore – not enough to be a turn-off.
This is hardly original, but musically speaking the songs are somewhat memorable with good melodies and some pretty cool riffage here and there, the thrashy edge of the old school Death Metal helping in both aspects. Overall this is pretty damn fast, even when you ignore the grindcore moments. Where things hurt is in the vocal department. The vocals themselves are fine, but the vocal lines are very annoying (shouted Spanish just doesn't work here) and often sounding downright silly. In short, this album would be much better if the vocals didn't sound retarded at times, because when they get it right, those parts just slay. Decent.
