metal rules swag

July 2002
Released: 2002, Necropolis Records / Deathvomit Records
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Engorged are:

Ryan Engorged - lead guitar and b-vocals

Noah - lead guitar and b-vocals

Kevin - bass and b-vocals

Shad Justice - drums and b-vocals

Dave Tentacle - lead vocals

Engorged makes a cross over between classic gore-grindcore/old school 80’s thrash/speed-metal with a fresh sound. The band comes from the USA, from the Pacific Northwest to be exact. ENGORGED is their debut-album. This band is a new acquaintance for me but nevertheless something very refreshing.

The Engorged sound reminds me of for example S.O.D who play 80’s thrash/speed-metal and so did Anthrax. There are influences of gore/grindcore here and there. The production and the sound picture are a genuine job and Ryan/Noah make potent guitar players both solo and lead. Shad on drums also has a potent sound. Dave changes between the two styles in an elegant way and he has a broad register. The rest of the band back him up on backup-vocals.

This is a marvellous crossover and they make it consequently through fourteen tracks. Engorged has taken the best from two music styles and have made a very delicate mixture for the new millennium.

This is fresh and a new creation and really good. In my opinion this band has a bright future.
