Massgrave Overtortures
(Terror From Hell Records)

Is it just me, or does the name PUTRID EVIL sound familiar to you as well? Well, let me confirm you that this band is absolutely new on the scene and picked up a name that wasn't even used before. Started in 2013 as a duo in Gdańsk, Poland, the band completed their line-up with a bass player and soon afterwards recorded their first demo tape: “Massgrave Overtortures”. And as the name already hints, PUTRID EVIL are nodding towards the old school. But it's not the old school of Death Metal the Polish trio cultivates on this offering but the old Grind school. Bands like TERRORIZER, BLOOD, NAUSEA, REPULSION or IMPETIGO were the force behind “Massgrave Overtortures”. And alike the forefathers of Grind Death, PUTRID EVIL prefered a very raw and natural production, raw enough it doesn't even need a proper studio. Instead, these eight chunks of meat were recorded in the band's rehearsal room. And this unaffected way of recording makes the not even 14 minutes of this tape a pure joy, if you're not a hi-fidelity fetishist or into those “modern” digital recordings. So, we have the atmosphere of the late 1980s, early 1990s demo tapes here, complete with a amazingly simple cover artwork fitting to these days. If you dig bands like the above mentioned, songs like 'Bowels To Regurgitate', 'Dawn Of Putrid Decay' or the superb 'Ominous Cries From The Cemetery' should be your weapons of choice against technical overproduced bullshit. Visit the band at: or, where you can get “Massgrave Overtortures” for free in a digital format. If you want to get more info on the tape version, go to:
