The gods of gore have returned! After a five-year silence, Haemorrhage have released a brand-new full-length via longtime allies Relapse. Hospital Carnage is a study in calculated brutality, filtered through the kind of sloppy, punk-as-fuck mentality that makes good grind so awesome. Thick, bottom-heavy guitar tones and a verging-upon-DIY recording keep things ugly, while the up-tempo grooves and d-beat breaks are a messy circle pit waiting to happen. Like their peers in Exhumed and General Surgery, Haemorrhage have made a career out of worshipping Carcass’ symphonies of sickness, but have managed to put enough of their own stamp on the sound to keep it as appealing as freshly spilled viscera. Spawned during death metal’s glory days and armed with a dizzying number of releases (including a seemingly endless parade of splits with scene luminaries like Impaled, Ingrowing, Embalming Theatre, and Disgorge) under their bloodsoaked aprons, Haemorrhage are goregrind OGs, and have shown no signs of slowing down. Get ready for Hospital Carnage.
In gore we trust!
