Avulsed, "Bloodcovered"

Aptly titled Bloodcovered because it consists solely of cover songs, Avlused's new mini CD is worth the $10 and the wait for the postal service to deliver it. This brutal quintet from Madrid rips through four studio cuts, and one live song (Sepultura's "Inner Self"). The four tracks recorded in the studio are originally performed by Morbid Angel (Immortal Rites), Carcass, Cannibal Corpse and Sodom (Magic Dragon). Every song is rock solid and done in Avulsed's patented slick gore metal style. There isn't much to say about this CD because Avulsed's competence in playing the songs is obvious, and their choice of tracks to cover utterly is impeccable.

Note: This album is strictly limited to 500 copies, can only be purchased directly from the band, and is homemade, though quite professional.
