Formally known as Cora under which title the band released a full length album by the name of ‘Anatomy of Abuses’, BRUTALCORE have now chosen a name that more fit’s their attitude, that being brutal to the point of oblivion. This ‘2 Bone Chilling Shockers’ split features four songs from these gore laden Turkish death dealers, all as short and to the point as the next and finished off with a cover of Mortician’s ‘Dead & Buried’. Here one minute, gone the next, it doesn’t take Brutalcore long to bash through their aggressive repertoire, lacking as it does in finesse but making up for it with so much brutality, it’s hard not to be slightly impressed at the ferociousness of their onslaught. [6.5/10]

 

With the remaining seven tracks of the release is the zaney, often meandering Death Metal abuse of Holland’s GORE OBSESSED, a band also seemingly obsessed with gore [Obviously] Mortician [A cover of ‘Slaughterhouse’ rounds off the album] audio clips from various old cheesy horror films and of course, short and to the point tracks! Like a tidal wave of blood soaked gore strewn carnage, Gore Obsessed batter and bludgeon through their seven tracks in an old school Death Metal manner that leaves few questions to be asked. Is it samey, yes it is! Yet it can also be described as brutal punishing and painful too, and surely that’s the point? [6.5/10 – LUKE HAYHURST]
