Raw, atmospheric and blackened buzz-saw Swedish death metal at its finest.
GUTTER INSTINCT was founded in 2012 by Oscar Persson, Hannes Hellman and Thomas Ernemyr in Helsingborg, Sweden, after having played together in various bands over the years. The aim being to unleash a unique combination of grinding death metal – no compromise, no remorse. Starting out, major musical influences included bands like Verminous, Necrovation, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Rotten Sound and Napalm Death.
After writing and rehearsing four revolutionary and unholy songs, the band entered Studio Mangelrum to record the first demo tape “Obedience”. Oppression, anti religion and total rejection of the establishment were the leading themes. The demo was self-released by the band in 2013 and was swiftly appointed “Demo of the Month” in the leading Swedish metal magazine, Close-Up.
After some various role changes in the rhythm section, the line up became: Thomas Ernemyr (vocals), Oscar Persson (guitar), Hannes Hellman (guitar), Simon Iskakssn (bass), and Ola Håkansson (drums).
