Gore Metal is the debut full-length album from American death metal band Exhumed. It was released on October 27, 1998, by Relapse Records. It has been described as "totally disgusting".[1] The only album to feature bassist Ross Sewage.

Background[edit]

According to founding member Matt Harvey, Gore Metal was the album where Exhumed developed its vision, although he conceded that "we were still very loose and sloppy and didn't really have a handle on recording at all. Listening back to that record, I like most of the songs, but the production is awful sounding."[2]

The band recorded several songs for the album that were lost when producer James Murphy, then suffering from brain cancer and acting "erratically", was evicted from his studio in Oakland.[2]
