The savage French Canadian brutal death metalers return after 20 years to wreak havoc once again on those whose ears can withstand the technical assault. After releasing a demo in 1993, then a split tape with Morkeum in 1994, Gorelust released their first full length CD in 1995 titled Reign of Lunacy on New World Symphony Records. It received a great response among fans and I still consider it one of the best and tightest pieces of punishing and technical death metal on the market today. In 2012 Remi Cote of PRC Music decided to re-release Reign of Lunacy with updated artwork and the response was strong. This caused a reaction in the former band members and prompted them to say fuck it, lets do a follow up album to Reign of Lunacy and thus We Are The Undead was born.

What Gorelust have unleashed is a piece of raw sounding, but at the same time, intricate and even sometimes catchy (as in the case of the song There Is No God). They have recorded it in the studio with no drum edits, triggers or samples. They have taken the model if you can't play it, don't record it. The opening song is an obvious tribute to Reign of Lunacy with Lunacy Still Prevails featuring samples from the intro to the
Reign of Lunacy CD. All 10 tracks on this CD are uncompromising, well played and sometimes moshy slamming Death Metal displayed as tight as ever. You can check out some very cool album sessions on YouTube of the band rehearsing -- the drumming by Francis Marmen is insane!

We Are The Undead is a solid follow up. I'm not sure if it can quite capture the exact same technical speed that Reign of Lunacy possessed but it still slays heavily. My favorite song is definitely There Is No God but Entering The Kill Fest and City Of Cannibals come damn close. Quebec death metal has been a forerunner in Canada for years with such break out acts as Gorguts who have transcended the genre and become a steam rolling mainstay act in the business.

With the CD booklet art as a tribute to Reign of Lunacy and all original members back on duty, let's hope they can pump out a couple more albums before they throw in the towel for good. If you like tight brutal Death Metal, then you'll devour Gorelust's We Are The Undead. All hail Canadian Death Metal and all hail the mighty Gorelust!!!!!
