30 Years Ago: GORGUTS release Considered Dead

Everywhere we've played, it's been good. Like, with the in-store we did here (in Denver), I think it reflects how the album is doing. A lot of people showed up. Many had the album, and a lot of people like it. It's real good. It's beyond what we expected, man! We're very happy with the response to it.
...I figured we would do a demo and be in the underground circuit for awhile. There are a lot of people who never heard about it. Only the people who are really into the underground knew about us because so many people don't know about zines'. Like Uniforce zine is one I like the most. Slayer mag too. Zines, I must say, are very helpful when your starting out.

GORGUTS released their debut album, Considered Dead, on this day in 1991 through Roadrunner.

Roadrunner signed the band following their 1990 demo ...And Then Comes Lividity.

Yeah, we have only one song from the demo [on the album]. It's 'Hematological Allergy', the only one that we kept, 'cause, uh, we weren't really pleased with the other songs, and we scrapped them, and we, uh, wrote only new stuff for the album, you know? Yeah, it was better, you know, 'cause when we signed, um, something like a month after that we kicked our guitar player out to get a better one, and it was better to write new stuff. 'Cause, y'know, with a new guitar player, he brought some new ideas in the band and it was all for the better anyway, yeah.
