Gutted Souls is a Death Metal Act that fuses the old with the new to carve our own sound to fight against the oligarchic madness. Our new album,  The Illusion of Freedom produced by Rodrigo Oliveira (Armored Dawn, Korzus) was released 18th August, 2017.  It is available on Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, Amazon and other major streaming platforms. It will be released in physical form by the labels Envenomed Music and Narcoleptica Productions.

BIO

GUTTED SOULS started in 2004 when the members of the band NECROPEDOPHILE, after lauching their demo FETAL GORE of 2002, started deviating from their proposed path of making Traditional Death Metal in the vein of Cannibal Corpse, Sinister, Morbid Angel and such. As the musicians started to become more proficient in their respective instruments, the musical direction changed to something more Technical and Progressive. 

The band suffered countless setbacks since then, with numerous line-up changes, and the sole remaining member is Iron (IncognoscI, Ex-Anopsy, Ex-Diisgraça). 

It was the idea of making Death Metal with lyrics that you would actually want to read, and a desire to inform about the realities of psychopathy, midiatic manipulation, the corruption of science and religion, that made the band resist. Now the band is with an stable formation, all sharing the same vision, and ready to dish out our way of seeing Death Metal. We have since our return shared stage with promissing and stabilished underground acts such as Lacerated and Carbonized, Anopsy, Unearthly, Flageladör, Apocalyptic Raids, Vomepotro, Ayin, Anarkhon, Krisiun, among others.

We have one EP released in 2012, and are finishing our first Full-Length, "Oligarchy and The Illusion of Freedom", featuring Rodrigo Oliveira (Korzus) on Drums and Production.

REVIEWS

"Their sound reminds me of what you might get if you compacted Jungle Rot, Death, Dying Fetus, and a smidge of Lamb Of God into one giant death metal sandwich. You’ve got the old school death metal sound with the more brutal death metal aspects of Dying Fetus mixed with guitar tones that feel similar to some of Lamb Of God’s songs (The demo track ‘Mondo Psycho’ always makes me think their song ‘Redneck’ is about to play)." Blastbeats and Silver Screens 

"...Their ferocious brand of no holds barred death metal crushes souls and is not afraid to get heavier than anything you've heard in years. I personally love the crushing riffs on songs like Mondo Psycho which showcase how brutal this band is willing to get. A big part of the this bands sheer brutality is the oh so destructive growls that add a certain ear exploding power to the mix. The riffs are hectic too, they make the songs blast along at an incredible pace and true metallers will bend the knee at Gutted Hate's raw metal mastery." Two Guys Metal Reviews 

"...GUTTED SOULS and their 2012 EP (Unconscious Automaton) displays some of the most brutal, and original deathmetal in quite some time! Dancing to the Sound of the Powers that be, starts this carve and hack routine with killer riffing, fast time changes, and brutal vocals, very death yet controlled style of this type..killer track! Psychopathic ruler violently stabs through once again displaying some hellish riffing, killer single foot smashing, and brutal breakdowns and well thought out formulas... The Undying Stars (my favorite track) is pure fucking deathmetal... this far into their world they have your soul, those riffing, that fast fucking grind and killer vocals rip through and kills any one in it's way. Ending this brutal murder, Words of Hate is classic death. There is alot of talent in this band, and there is no doubt in my mind, that they are on there way to bigger things to come, this EP fucking kills." Dana, Holy Hell Webzine 

"Não fosse pelo vocal à lá Matti Way (ex-Disgorge americano), a pergunta seria: trata-se um novo trabalho da Angel Corpse? Por aí, dá-se o atestado do nível dessa banda carioca, que “apenas” massacra com seu poderoso Death Metal. Se alguém não acredita, é só conferir. Em todas as seis faixas, a sensação é a mesma: trata-se de um grupo seguro de si, cheio de técnica, criatividade e experiência – quase dez anos de estrada. É balada atrás de balada (no sentido de bala de revólver, ok?), com uma bateria bem tocada, juntamente com os outros instrumentos. Aliás, as estruturas das composições são um show!..."

"The Undying Stars" abre o EP com a bateria dando a sensação que caímos em meio a um fogo cruzado pois é metranca na orelha. A banda faz algumas alternâncias no ritmo em alguns trechos mas o que prevalece é a velocidade e riffs marcantes, sem falar nos guturais bem executados por Iron. "Psychopathic Ruler" começa sem misericórdia, pois o arsenal não acaba e mais metranca, só que nessa faixa há um solo onde a velocidade é deixada de lado, mas na boa é apenas pra recarregar e logo em seguida vem mais chumbo grosso até o fim. "Dancing to the Sound...of the Powers that Be" é marcante pelos seus riffs grudentos e bateria intensamente veloz, cadência e técnica, tudo bem encaixado e vocal absurdamente gutural mas entendível, brutalidade, velocidade e técnica, para mim a melhor faixa do EP. "Words of Hate" destaca a técnica, inteligência e brutalidade sonora da banda, riffs violentos, solos bem encaixados, vocal ignorantemente insano como em todas as faixas..." Filipe Lima, Over Metal Zine 

"Não tem como negar a qualidade do underground nacional nos dias de hoje. Nem o mais chato e exigente dos bangers pode negar o fato de que muitas de nossas bandas estão no mesmo nível, ou são até superiores que muitas do cenário internacional. E isso também se aplica aos cariocas do Gutted Souls e seu Brutal Death Metal. O material que apresentam, além de ser um massacre para ouvidos mais sensíveis, tem alta qualidade!..." Leandro Vianna, A Música Continua a Mesma - Blog 

"O disco trás seis faixas, sendo duas da demo de 2011, e três inéditas. O EP apresenta os jargões do gênero, bateria rápida com muitos blast beats, riffs igualmente rápidos e cadenciados, ditando o andamento das composições. Sonoramente incontestável, faixas bem trabalhadas, e brutais." Artur Azeredo, Heavy Metal All Night
