This impressively talented group from Toronto, Canada left my jaw aching bad from how hard it hit the ground from the drop and for how long it spent there on the dirty, grimy ground. So much so that it made me coin a new term and subsequent acronym. D.D.M.F., Dumbfounded Death Metal Face. I’m pretty sure the people driving past me were wondering what the hell was going on with me as I passed by in my car, mouth agape, eyebrows raised, nodding along while listening to this outstanding compilation.
And yes, I did say that this is a complication. For ‘Assemblage of Disgust’ assembles two of their previous EP releases, ‘Towards Degradation’ and ‘Within Mental Ruins’, with one their singles, ‘Drain the Ichor’, sandwiched in between to form an extremely delicious Death Metal delicacy for all to enjoy.
This scrumptious compilation came out in 2021 but it is truly timeless in it’s sound and execution. Hell, it could have been released anytime from the he early 1990’s till now and it would still sound fresh and unique. The closest comparison would be the mighty Gorguts yet then again they really don’t sound like another Gorguts clone. But they are their own breed, their own toxin, their own Fumes.
