GUTRICYDE (USA)- Self Titled - Reviewed By Hard Music base ! Check it out here at this link: https://hardmusicbase.cz/index.php?stranka=recenze_vypis&id=90473&m=1
There are bands on the metal scene whose boredom you have to either love or hate. Mortician are really boring live, but I don't mind the boredom so much from their albums. There, the boredom may be a bit disrupted by the horror intro. It's not that the new American death metal band GUTRICYDE doesn't have an intro on their nameless debut, but they don't take a vehement look at them and rather let their musical brutality speak. And they have a similar one with Mortician. Their bestial, morbidly nasty death metal doesn't rush into crazy rubanics, but the medium-tempo passages tie brutal death metal slamming together in all its wonderful ugliness. Beautiful boredom to look at, which is peacefully complemented by grindcore motifs. Vocal on one level as if he had never heard anything about the graceful variety. This is simply not a valley of death for barbies, but a top-notch disgust. Very good debut album. - Hard Music base

Gutricyde was initially brought to life by Bret Smith, an original member of the 90's era Texas Death Metal band: Embalmed. Starting out as a one-man Death Metal Project in 2019, the project has evolved. As of 2022 with a recent lineup change, Gutricyde is currently a 4-piece group consisting of Bret Smith on guitar, vocals and programing, Lance White, formerly of Gruesome Fate and Blast Wound on guitar and vocals, Dave Tillery formerly of Embalmed, Gruesome Fate and an active front man for comorbidity, as well as stage theatrics mascot Ray "Gutty" Mora (A.K.A - The Butcher). Converting a bedroom into a small recording studio in Fate, Texas, the writing process began to flow. Once a good foundation was built along with some of the first demo tracks released in January 2021, the project gained the attention from some local promoters through social media, and they started getting offers to open some shows. Through 2021 Gutricyde has written 13 new tracks, 11 of which are featured on a full-length EP self-titled "Gutricyde", released on Corpse Gristle Records in February of 2022.
In January of 2022, GUTRICYDE had a promising lineup change, bringing in Dave Tillery of Comorbidity and Embalmed on bass and moving Lance White to guitar. This was a welcomed change and has made a tremendous improvement on the band's efficiency and quality.
