A very fitting band to review on this blog, although we more or less recently started and the band Gorgasm have been brutalizing orifices since 1994. I have been listening to this act for years and hearing about their departure in 2008 was a real setdown in the death metal scene for me, when they finally picked up the chopped up pieces they left hanging and decided to stitch them up with new members to add some extra guts in  the grinder I... am very sad to say that I had no clue on what was going on.

It took over a year for me to find out that they released Orgy Of Murder 2011 and i think that the instant chock of finding out about their return I somehow couldn´t really enjoy that album to the full. Well now it's time to look into their latest effort and i have been ready a long time for this eargashing piece of plastic.

Let's eviscerate Destined To Violate in a meticular fashion, first of we have the pleasant cover, it's nice but it really doesn't have any real chockvalue and have a striking similarity to many other BDM covers out there, both Masticate To Dominate and Orgy In Blood beats this one to their victims with a couple yards and I'm not even going to make any comment on the cover of  Stabwound Intercourse, that one was just funny. But the lyrics on the other hand, just watching the titles you know that they have slabbed on more necrotic secretes and abusive defilements than the earlier works, the songs from their Promo 06 even took it's place on this album and finally Kuntkiller is out on a cd!

With the lovingly, poetic penned down lyrics at hand it's time to see if the music delivers too. After a short sample that sets the mood for the upcoming misogynistic ultrarage it blasts off and my brutaltinged lecherous necro orgythirst gets quenched. Musically it's more of a continuation to Masticate than Orgy with the same melodic Putrid Pile like nobullshit style that could be heard on Bleeding Profusely which successfully binds in with the technical brutality, add a couple of breakdowns, now when I say breakdowns I don't mean the superslowmo Deathcore 1.....2.....3 sort of breakdown but chugging, churning, fat deathmetal breakdown so there's no need to panic amongst the DM elist scene.

The production overall is raw, natural and stripped down, almost in a live perfomance way and in this case it's a good thing, it adds alot more grime to the filth. All of the instruments are audible too, although the bass and some cymbalstrikes can drown in the massive wall of guitars, blastbeats and lubricated vomitduo vocals. Now this is Gorgasm at it's prime, I´m not saying that it's better than for example Masticate or Bleeding but all of them have an equal capacity to musically bitchslap my interest awake until the end of the albums.

If you never have heard of Gorgasm, well first of all you should be ashamed of yourself! second of all, we can simplify it like this, imagine if Severe Torture, Cannibal Corpse, Fleshless and Insidious Decrepancy gave birth to an inbred, re-animated stillborn, homicidal rapemongoloid that ravages and dismembers everything living in it´s way.
