Formed in 2019, the ascent of Canada's GUTVOID has been nothing if not meteoric. The Toronto natives digitally released their debut EP, Astral Bestiary, later that autumn and came to the attention of BLOOD HARVEST, who then released it physically in 2020. And for good reason: ominously swarming, GUTVOID churned forth a world-eating Metal of Death that duly devoured the listener whole. More than being a three-song/24-minute soundworld unto itself, Astral Bestiary was a statement of intent from a bold-yet-pure DEATH METAL band.
Continuing that momentum was the even-bolder "Forbidden City Beneath the Crypt" digital single later in 2020, and the absolutely gelatinous Four Dimensions of Auditory Terror four-way split shared with BLOOD SPORE, COAGULATE, and SOUL DEVOURMENT, underlining GUTVOID's slimy, mind-mangling roots. The stage was thus set for the inevitable full-length debut... -Blood Harvest
