Back when I posted Immortal's Pure Holocaust album, I mentioned that it was the perfect introduction to Black Metal for the uninitiated. Well, Gorguts' first album, Considered Dead works in much the same way for Death Metal. With its greasy tones, gross-out lyrics and particularly wonky Dan Seagrave cover, it's almost too perfect an example. Just Death Metal as it was in 1991. Of course we all know that Gorguts grew leaps and bounds as musicians and rewrote the manual on technical Death Metal with their 1998 album, Obscura, but this interests me more. Pure, unadultered, Quebecois viscera.
