Gaza – Discography + Bird Eater – ‘Utah’

Posted on 29/07/2011


There are few bands in this world whose discographies are truly worth owning, and Gaza is one of them. While their output to date is limited, unfortunately, to three releases, all offer increasingly more developed blends of their truly hellish, dissonant take on grind/hardcore. While there are a handful of bands working in a similar territory to these guys (Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire and Psychic Limb come to mind), few bands come off as ferocious, twisted and just plain brutal, in the fullest sense of the word, as Gaza does. Though their playing is technical at times, the shifting tempos and time signatures serve only to heighten the sense of barely contained chaos, which rises to near-apocalyptic levels of fury: a combination of inhuman growls and screams, and jagged, dischordant guitars. Gaza is an aural representation of hatred as an emotion, so intense you can almost taste the bile as it rises in their throats. It’s not pleasant. They’re currently working on new material, so I’m praying for a new release this year. 2009’s He is Never Coming Back was easily one of the best albums of that year, though my personal favourite would have to be their first full-length, I Don’t Care Where I Go When I Die. All their releases thus far are up for download below, as well as Bird Eater (a similar band with members of Gaza in it)’s Utah EP. Listen, for your own sake.
