"THE MURDEROUS INCEPTION"
LACERATED ENEMY RECORDS
GAPED is a one man project out of Australia and is the brain child of Ryan Huthnance.
Ryan has done all the song writing, all instruments and all vocals. This is one hell of a
good Death Metal album. The music he has written takes me back to the late '80' & early
'90's when Death Metal music was first starting. It was the next evolution of Thrash
Metal and was quickly becoming one of my favorite styles of music. The music is done
with a bit of elements taken from the Floridian Death Metal scene, Swedish Death Metal
as well as a bit of Mid West and New York scenes. I love how the music is low ended
dark and gritty, chaotic and aggressive Death Metal, but also has a bit of a groove and you
can understand the vocal growls. A lot of bands kept coming to mind as I went further
into the album. It was in no way a rip off, but heavily influenced by a lot of bands. I loved
the grooved out Death style that he has put into the guitar work a lot. The vocals, as said
above are done in a mid to low ended Death growl style, but you can understand them,
which I liked a lot. A lot of Death Metal bands have well writing, intelligent and
interesting lyrics, and even though I love Death growls, sometimes it's lost if you can't
understand the lyrics. GAPED is a killer old school Death Metal band and Ryan is truly
and amazing artist and musician. I hope we get to hear a lot more from him the future.
"THE MURDEROUS INCEPTION" is by far one of my top favorite releases I've
reviewed this year. This is a must for fans of DISMEMBER, INCANTATION,
SUFFOCATION, MORBID ANGEL, VICIOUS CIRCLE, ENTOMBED,
IMMOLATION, BLOODBATH, SEVERE TORTURE & PUNGENT STENCH!!!
