PORTLAND SPLATTERTHRASH, Part 4
Not to be confused with Engorged Vaginal Abyss, Cerebral Engorgement, Guttural Engorgement, Engorge, Engorgement In Veins, or the Vomitous/Inhuman Dissiliency split album Supreme Engorgement of Exquisite Disembowelment, Portland's own not-at-all-generically named ENGORGED were something like godfathers to the PDX Goregrind/Splatterthrash scene, popularizing its basic tenets of gore, cheese, and fun all the way back in the mid-to-late-90's. Engorged's (say that out loud) penchant for 70's and 80's horror, along with their obvious fondness for G.I. Joe villains COBRA (see album cover, song titles, live photo), and Lovecraft (they list their lyrical themes as "Horror, Death, Lovecraft/Howard/Clark Ashton Smith") have made them perennial favorites here at ICHQ, and their live show is not to be missed. Members of this band have gone on to play in such previously-mentioned Portland grind units as Frightmare and Fall of The Bastards, so you know their black little hearts are in the right place. Enjoy their first two proper full-length albums, 1999's Death Metal Attack 2 and 2002's self-titled affair, as responsibly as possible.
