Glutton For Punishment are a band from Minnesota that plays a very brutal form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Lying In Torment" which was released by Twin Town Tyrant Records.
A very heavy and brutal death metal sound starts off the album along with some guttural growls and blast bears and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music starts bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being very old school sounding.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of both old school and modern brutal death metal elements being mixed together and some of the tracks also bring in high pitched screams and some influences from thrash and grindcore and the whole album remains true to a heavy and brutal sound from beginning to end.
Glutton For Punishment plays a style of death metal that is very old school and brutal in the true American tradition of the genre, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover violence, gore, punishment and torment themes.
In my opinion Glutton For Punishment are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unheard Screams" "Systematic Eradication" "Choke On Lies" and "The Devil In Me". 8 out of 10.
