Five years and two new members – drummer Kauko Kuusisalo who joined right after the release of their debut album and second six-stringer Pauli Gurko who arrived last year – later, Finland’s most in-your-face death metal band is back and they still are forging their way with a hammer.
“This was meant at first to be an EP” reveals their original guitarist Jukka Aho “but it slowly grew into a full-length. Some of the songs date all the way back to 2012 and the material has had much time to ferment resulting in GOREPHILIA’s most refined compositions yet. The lyrics explore the inner conflict and self-destructive nature of man – parting from his will, values and life. The album was recorded with Tommi Otsavaara, mostly live in studio with the exception of vocals and guitar solos, just like for our debut.”
