This is sick, very sick and I fucking love it. I'm not familiar with any Lord Gore material prior to Resickened but what a fucking trip this is. The music is savagely brutal gory old school death metal in the vein of Autopsy, Carcass, Bolt Thrower and in particular Dutch death metallers Houwitser. There's nothing like a dose of brutal death metal and Lord Gore certainly knows how to deliver it. Once the opener "Gastric Gore-met" kicks in it immediately becomes apparent that Lord Gore is not some sweet American boychoir [I guess the artwork and bandname would already have given that away, ehh]. I thought it wouldn't get anymore vile and sickening than "Gastric Gore-met" but I was instantly proved wrong and as the album progressed there seemed to be no limit to how brutal and repulsive the music could get. The guitars has that thick, juicy and chunky feel to them which add a lot of depth and punch to the soundscape as do the guttural and gurgling growls with their sick and frightening patterns.
All the material is worthwhile but songs like "Liquid Lunch" [which has a certain Bolt Thrower feel to it], the relentlessly furious "Chitin", "Kicked to Death" [love the intro] and "Trioxin" are the ones that immediately seem to stand out the most. Of course brutality often equals monotony but this is not the case here. The music is varied and covers pretty much the whole spectrum ranging from intense blastbeat outbursts, manic leads to more mid-paced and slow, heavy grooves like for instance in "Megacephallus". The bizarre, grotesque and perverted intros that accompany almost every song add even more flavour to the already repulsive and vile musical imagery as well as offering a little breathing room in between all the gut wrenching savagery. The band may not display a whole lot of originality but regardless of this it would be a lie if I said I didn't enjoy every second of Resickened. If you're looking for some brutal and twisted deathgore to terrorize your surroundings with then I wouldn't pass on Resickened, sure it may not provide anything unheard but it does offer more than fifty minutes of death metal frenzy and that is more than fine with me.
