Return the chainsaw
There are songs like "Distorted and twisted to form" sounding thrash metal rotten, is this deve a "Scarecrow"? Or do I get the feeling they want to do something like "Repulsion"? I say mostly because "Funereality" the first 40 seconds is a mixture of the second riff of "pestilence decay" of Repulsion and riff to Metallica.
The "Solos" I think what I like, with its reverb and melody, but above these "Solos" is "Necrotized" I loved this song since the first time I heard it is a song very barbaric touch bass solo while singing Matt, is a new thing I hear from Exhumed, and sudden stoppages guitar riff that is in the accompaniment of "Solo" also riffs after continue to accompany ... It's a song I like, a perfect song for a potential Psychokiller.
"So Let It Be Rotten ... So Let It Be Done" is the best way to end this piece of album, a song that is still a prototype, an improvised riffs structure that alter the order of harmony, may be more faithful to the song's later work. Other things to note about the album, the sound is much cleaner sound than "Anatomy Is Destiny" and a sharper drums, Matt's voice does not become quite as before, and also highlight the deep voice has ceased to be more "dark" to be more "aggressive" and direct, no more dark atmosphere, and also the overall sound is more aggressive than scary.
In short, I like the album, I put a good score more than anything also that the returns have never been easy to exhume and have done very well, I expected something like that, I would say it's the best album of 2011 but even to finish the year and I can not certify it. A recommended album, the only thing I can not say that I like 100% is the cover, I like the idea of ??zombies, but they appear dressed as zombies ... ... I prefer the deluxe edition with the saw blood.

Exhumed retrieves all the guts they left behind and take all the glory with it.
As far as the more brutal albums go, this is in my mind one of the best metal albums released in 2011 along with Agony (my favorite release of 2011, but there were TONS of AMAZING records released during that year). Although at the concert, I only had enough money to buy a sticker and a small button/pin (whatever you call it), I can guarantee you that I will be picking up a fresh copy of this when The Summer Slaughter Tour passes through this summer. Although the music behind the two classics (Slautercult and Gore Metal) are unforgettable and ground-breaking, the quality of the production and sound really got in the way at times; mainly when I was listening to them on my Zune (Microsoft’s version of the iPod) because the treble is blisteringly loud. The overall sound on All Guts, All Glory is EXACTLY what I needed!
I feel sort of guilty for saying this, but this album makes the earlier Exhumed material look amateur and unorganized. Although that sounds harsh (remember, I LOVE their earlier material), if you look at the song structure from a more critical perspective, the songs on this record are a lot cleaner and less “quickly slapped together”. The band is also tighter, so that makes it much easier for there to be more dramatic transitions and pauses without having someone start playing before everyone else. The guitar solos aren’t PURE shredding, the guitarists really improved their technique and musicianship during their time off. So there is an obvious increase in professionalism and creativity in the guitar solos alone. Not only that, the background music actually changes during the guitar solos to help them stand out; so it doesn’t sound like everyone’s playing as loud as they fucking can to try to get above the other instruments (although that probably wasn’t ever their intention in the first place, it just sounds like it).
The vocals sound much more developed, especially the screams. The screams in Gore Metal (not so much in Slaughtercult) get a little bit irritating and wonky at times just because they sound really undeveloped. But remember, there’s nothing wrong with that as long as they get better over time, and they have…A HELL OF A FUCKING LOT! Of course, when I saw them, they played the intro track before the two guitarists and the bassist flipped their guitars, showing the stickers on the backs of their instruments, each one having one word, eventually spelling out GORE. FUCKING. METAL. Right after that, Exhumed charged into As Hammer to Anvil. For people that are new to Exhumed, this actually a great album to start out with (although their first two albums are ESSENTIAL). For people that have been listening to Exhumed for a while and haven’t heard this record yet…HEAR IT! I would give All Guts, No Glory 18/20.
