MetalBite Review by Tara on 9/4/2016
Death-thrash that pays homage to sleazy 80s horror/slasher flicks and is chock full of catchy riffs to boot? Yes, please! Screaming Mad Gore
is the first full-length from the Canadian gore-obsessed trio known as VHS
and a mighty impressive one at that.
The simple song structures and their shorter than average length are what makes Screaming Mad Gore
easy to digest and wholly enjoyable. But don't let those short song lengths fool you. Each track is packed with a mega chunky punch of blood soaked thrash that will capture your attention and leave you wanting more!
Based on how much fun it is to listen to, this album will surely be a contender for my top ten/top twenty albums of 2016. The artwork, song titles and lyrical content ooze with 80s horror slasher goodness. It would be hard for anyone who doesn't enjoy those things to not love the hell out of VHS
. Screaming Mad Gore
Stand out tracks: Hairspray and Bloodspray, Room 36, When Sleeping Bag Meets Tree
(just for the title alone - LOL!)
Rating: 8 out of 10
