Gory Blister is a technical death metal band from Milan, Italy, formed in 1991. Their lyrical themes range from psychology to modern literature/poetry and outer space.


The band was formed in 1991 and after two demos, "Spoilt By Greed" in 1991 and "Hanging Down the Sounds" in 1993, they released their first EP, Cognitive Sinergy[1] in 1997.[2] In 1999, they self-released, Art Bleeds.[1] By 2004, the line-up consisted of the vocalist Adry Bellant, drummer Joe Laviola, bass guitarist Fredrick and guitarist Raff. In October 2004, the band was requested by AreaDeath Productions to donate their cover version of "1000 Eyes" to a Chinese Death tribute album Unforgotten Past – A Tribute to Chuck Schuldiner. In January 2005, they signed to Mascot Records of Holland. In early 2006, Skymorphosis, was released by Mascot Records. In January 2007, Bellant left the band and was replaced by Clode. In February, they toured with Amoral in Italy.[2] Their third[when?] album, Graveyard of Angels,[3] was released on April 6, 2009, by Mascot Records.[2] After touring Italy to promote the Graveyard album, GORY BLISTER began writing new songs. Guitarist / vocalist Karl Sanders from U.S. death metal band NILE joined the band to sing as a guest vocalist on two tracks for this fourth album. In April 2012 Gory Blister released via BeckerTeam Records, a division of Scarlet Records, their fourth album titled “Earth-Sick”, with a new great singer named John. The new work containing 10 new songs of pure, and Technical, Brutal, Death Metal in the style that has always distinguished the band over the past 20 years has been received enthusiastically by the media and fans. The band played several gigs in Italy to promote Earth-Sick as headliner and supporting acts like Entombed, Sinister, Obituary. At the moment the band has just released the fifth album of their metal career; Entitled THE FIFTH FURY, it is just waiting for you. Tracklist: 1) Psycho Crave 2) Thresholds 3) Toxamine 4) Devouring me 5) The Fifth Fury 6) Prometheus Scars 7) In the mass grave 8) The grey machinery - Bonus) Heretic Infected Orchestra.
