Gorgasm were always technically competent panderers who made entirely derivative and empty collection of brutal and chaotic riffs. They were a direct spiritual successor to the paradoxical no-nonsense physical yet complete-nonsense spiritual approach to Death Metal typified by Cannibal Corpse.

So needless to say I am overjoyed by the formation of this band.

Why does a death metal band from France use the name of Kurdish guerrilla fighters?


Peshmerga or Peshmerge (Kurdish: PÍşmerge or پێشمه‌رگه ‌‌) is the term used by Kurds to refer to armed Kurdish fighters. Literally meaning "those who face death" (Pesh front + marg death)

Cool enough idea, but I don't know what it has to do with France.

This band makes no effort to define itself away from Gorgasm musically either. This is awful, but I am sure this won't be the last we hear of it. But I wonder if this kind of death metal still has a legitimate following though. I doubt many hardcore Gorgasm or Lividity fans from ten years ago still give a shit. Maybe I'm out of touch with the scope of the genre but it seems like Brutal DM has really declined in stature since 2006.

Gorgasm =    Chicago Illinois was formed in 1995.
Not to be confused with the band in France.  

They both eat dicks.

The welcoming committee has arrived.
