Gaped are a band from Australia that plays a very heavy, brutal and old school form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "The Murderous Inception" which was released by Lacerated Enemy Records.
The ep starts out with horror movie samples and a few seconds later the music goes into a more heavy and brutal death metal direction along with deep growls and a minute later solos are added into the music as well as adding in fast parts and blast beats which also leads to the music alternating between being mid paced and fast.
As the ep moves on groove elements and melody are added into the guitar riffing and solos along with Swedish death metal influences and high pitched screams which also leads to the music getting more technical in certain sections of the recording and the last song is a Cannibal Corpse cover.
On this ep Gaped combine the heaviness and brutality early 90's New York death metal with the melody of old school Swedish death metal to create a very heavy recording that demonstrates how death metal should really be done.
Song lyrics cover darkness and gore themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy, professional and old school sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Gaped are a very great sounding heavy, brutal, old school gore/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Let The Cutting Begin" and "Stripped, Raped, Strangled And Tortured" which is a Cannibal Corpse cover. 8 out of 10.
