Vomit Forth
Northeastern Deprivation

Relatively new to the death metal scene, Connecticut’s Vomit Forth have been acquired by Maggot Stomp to take both the 2018 Vomit Forth demo and Inherit Laceration ep and throw them on a cd combining the 2 new songs in 2019, making up the Northeastern Deprivation for a total of 9 songs on this compilation of the band’s material, to date.

Maggot Stomp is quickly rising up the ranks in labels and look out for my forthcoming review for the debut from Fluids on this amazing label.  The bands on this great label I am coining them and others-NWOBDMNew Wave of Brutal Death Metal.  I foresee these younger bands begin to start usurping some thrones out there, regarding long standing bands who have been around for 25+ years.  This is all evidenced by the fact when you look at views and streams some of these younger bands are laying waste to other longstanding acts and this is all part of the new generation and also the forward thinking mentality of these younger, hungrier bands.  Vomit Forth are one of those bands.  Starting the comp off with one of the new songs-“Immortal Disseverance” the song rips right into a brutal blast beat, after the isolated guitar riffing.  Then the nice isolated drums and right into a mid-paced rumbling groove that will have bodies flying all over the place at the club.  Since stop n start type of groove.  A lot of angry attitude on this track.  So killer.

Other new song “Pillar of Rot” will be bringing out the body bags with this opening groove/slam part that will cause sinkholes all over the place.  Then those pinch harmonics will slice your body right down the middle and you will be lying a pile of blood and piss and become an Unclaimed Cadaver.

“Torn Open” from the Vomit Forth demo has an excellent guitar sound and from start to finish-pure brutality with gruff, barking death metal vocals.  The snare drum sound has a little too much pop to the sound, for my liking, because I like a deeper and basier snare sound.  This snare has a very Visceral Throne sound to it.  The monster slam part and the ending blast part really make this a great brutal death metal song.  “Lethal Impulse” from the demo must be in Vomit Forth’s live set.  This opening mid-paced rumbling caused birds to suddenly stop flying and drop dead all over the Jersey Shore and the boardwalk was littered with all the stinking things, cause unsuspecting people to trip all day long over the carcasses.  This song has monster blasting, killer vocals and nice drum rolls-really fast.  I want to start punching things at the 2 minute mark where the slow down literally collapsed chest cavities everywhere.

“Inherent Laceration” starts with a monster vicious groove that had Scott Magrath dropping elbows all day long and then doing his best Ronnie Garvin “The Man with the Hands of Stone” impersonation on the poor check-out lady at Costco.  This groove is ferocious and then “Entanglement” comes in and I’m done at this point, especially with the opening, the nice bass guitar lines and blast.  Nice guitar riffing with catchy moments that are not thrown together, but actually thought out.  The 1.11 moment has some black metal riffing going on and the vocals are super throaty and mauling.

The average song length comes out to roughly 2 minutes, maybe a little longer.  Vomit Forth waste no time with their songs as they pack so much into these quick 2+ minute numbers and really I dig this band a lot.  The production is true organic heaviness and this band has a bright future ahead of them.  They have to record a full length in 2020 and provide the masses with new songs and I find a lot of originality to this band.  While their sound is going to be geared more towards the NY/NJ brutal death metal style-Vomit Forth provides creative and innovative ideas.

Northeastern Deprivation is a monster of a compilation and their sound lays waste to many bands doing this style for 20 years.  Crushing and destructive.
