GRUESOME: Share “Inhumane” Video via Loudwire
Death Metal Defenders of the Old GRUESOME share the official video for “Inhumane” off the impending Twisted Prayers full-length album. Watch the Jeffrey Sisson (Exhumed, Origin) directed video via Loudwire HERE.
“We’re very stoked about how this video turned out. Jeff Sisson really took the concept and ran with it, creating something new and unique, while still in the spirit of homage that GRUESOME is all about. This is the lead-off track for the record, and we feel like it really sets the tone for Twisted Prayers – a blend of OSDM savagery and a bit of melody and flash to mix things up a bit. Play this at work to creep out your co-workers or on the bus home to get the person sitting next to you to fuck off! Thanks for checking it out, thanks to Jeff for putting this together, and as always thanks to Chuck and the boys for their legacy, which we continue to have a blast celebrating!” – Matt Harvey
GRUESOME recently partnered with Decibel Magazine to share their cover of “Legion of Doom” by Chuck Schuldiner’s pre-DEATH project MANTAS. The recording will be included the forthcoming June issue as a special pictured flexi disc. Stream the exclusive track via Decibel Magazine HERE.
GRUESOME has announced two exclusive concerts in Florida with labelmates Exhumed before their European tour this Summer in support of Twisted Prayers. The Twisting Europe 2018 tour begins July 19 at Obscene Extreme in Trutnov, CZ and ends August 12 at Alcatraz Open Air in Kortrijk, BE. Includes additional festival appearances at Wacken Open Air, Party San Open Air and more. All confirmed tour dates are listed below.
GRUESOME’s second studio album Twisted Prayers is due out June 1st on CD/LP/DLX LP/CS/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and Digital Downloads / Streaming Services AT THIS LOCATION. Deluxe LP edition of the album includes an accompanying Flexi Disc featuring companion artwork and a cover of POSSESSED’s “The Exorcist”.
Less than four short years into their career, GRUESOME (featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, etc.) have quickly made a name for themselves as not just torchbearers of DEATH’s eternal legacy but as one of the most heralded bands in the scene today. After releasing a pair of acclaimed EPs, GRUESOME return with their second full-length sermon, Twisted Prayers. Twisted Prayers follows DEATH’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics.
Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, FL, Twisted Prayers features GRUESOME doing what they do best across eight songs and 40+ minutes of unholy hymns with lurid melodies and vulgar atmospheres. The band has once again teamed up with the legendary Ed Repka (Death, Atheist, Massacre) for the album’s blasphemous cover art in addition to legendary DEATH guitarist James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Testament) for a pair of special guest guitar solos. Bow your heads and worship at the altar of GRUESOME!
