Brazilian death metallers Vomepotro appear heavily influenced by Cannibal Corpse around Butchered at Birth and Tomb of the Mutilated, but I wouldn't say the band sound anything like a clone, however the similarities are definitely there. The debut Zombie Gore Vomit is a slap of brutal death metal. The band doesn't try any new tricks whatsoever, but go for the familiar style which is just fine with me. The songs are fairly varied, but mostly kept in the faster end without ever being ultra fast. Vomepotro do slow things down a little at times which again add life to the music and leave room for the heavier parts. The vocals are of course deep and guttural as they should be in this kind of death metal.

Moreover the band throws in a solo or two here and there. It colours the soundscape further as do the naked bass lines and samples that occur once or twice during Zombie Gore Vomit. The vocals appear a little too much upfront in the soundscape, but besides that there's really not much to complain about. Zombie Gore Vomit may sound like a million other death metal albums, but it doesn't make it any less good. If you like your death metal brutal and in the vein of old Cannibal Corpse then Zombie Gore Vomit is hard to avoid.
