Septycal Gorge is an Italian death metal band. If you're as ignorant of Italian culture as I am... what the fuck is wrong with you? You probably watch Nascar and carry guns in public, don't you. You should be ashamed of yourself.
All I really know is that there is quite a bit of excellent death metal coming out of Italy right now. Is this album an exception?
~ Ooohhoohoohoo, the anticipation is too much! ~
First, you're probably wondering what septycal means. Well, I don't have an answer for that. The best Google could do is tell me that it's probably a Polish word. Which isn't of much help.
Your pretension alarms are going off? Well, they shouldn't be. They may be fond of nonsense language, but they play nothing but straight forward, in your face, diesel-guzzling, necrophilia-endorsing brutal death metal. Kindly start banging your head, or turn the album the fuck off. Now that's a situation.
Not much separates Septycal Gorge's music from the music of other brutal/tech death bands, though. The guitar work is fast, the drumming is faster, grooves are frequent, melody is scarce, and the vocals are growled. Erase The Insignificant sounds suspiciously like an album from Italian comrades, Vomit The Soul. The riffs are less technical and less varied, but the end result blurs into the same sonic blob as Portraits of Inhuman Abominations — a blob that encompasses much of the brutal death scene. This is not to say that Erase isn't technical. It is. It just puts more emphasis on the adjective "brutal".
Erase is a decent album. There's nothing at all original about it, but Gorge doesn't set out to challenge you. Put Gorge on if you want to do some neck damage. They don't do much that other brutal death bands don't, but they won't test your patience and set your thumbs atwiddle. Grooves are emphasized but the album doesn't get too repetitious. Therefore, I like it. Now that's a situation.
