SORE - Gruesome Pillowbook Tales LP


Just looking at their cover artwork that resembles the inlay artwork of the Massacre classic From Beyond, you know you've got some quality death metal on your hands, or you were over-analysing and got lucky. Consisting of members of Kadaverficker, Depression, Bereaved among others, Sore from Germany play ripping old school death metal with modern elements. On their aptly titled debut album, Gruesome Pillowbook Tales, Sore retell the gruesome old school tales to the newbie listener with plenty of grisly and brutal embellishments that promises to give them many sleepless nights.

Playing a mix of speedy, Brutal Death Metal and gurgling, chunky Goregrind, these guys wouldn’t recognize originality if it reared up and bit them in their collective arse. Still, there’s no denying these boys have talent, and debut album “Gruesome Pillowbook Tales” is a very enjoyable half hour of undemanding, gory fun. Unlike most bands in the genre SORE’s sound favors all out speed, which makes a refreshing change from the crushingly slow, bowel-loosening tempos of groups like COCK AND BALL TORTURE, and THE DAY EVERYTHING BECAME NOTHING. Imagine if you will, a less technical DEEDS OF FLESH, or even early ABORTED and you’ve got a good idea. Throw in a couple of fantastic covers, including a faithful rendition of Goregrind Godfathers IMPETIGO’s cult classic “Boneyard”, and you have a hugely enjoyable slice of no-nonsense, if derivative, Death Metal that’s sure to put a smile on any self-respecting gorehound’s face.
