Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Engorged is a band from Portland, USA. They formed in 1997 by Akkad (Vocals), Ryan (Guitars, Last Empire, Thy Infernal, Frightmare), Noah (Guitars, Frightmare), Lucas (Bass, Menacer (US), Fall of the Bastards) and Shad (Drums, Coma Void, Whore (US), Frightmare, Blood Freak). The band unqiuely blends horror themes, death metal and grindcore in a blend of catchy deathgrind. The vocals are rough and growly with backing vocals of high scream rather like Napalm Death or Impaled, the guitars are distorted and downtuned for the full effect of the blasting and catchy drums. They have simialities between all their past artists like Frightmare and other artists like Lord Gore and have toured with such bands as Obituary, Macabre, Pungent Stench, Impaled, Repulsion, Blood Duster, Cephalic Carnage and Phobia.

They released their “Death Metal Attack” demo in 1997 as a cassette and toured around for most of that year. They were praticing new songs and were approached by Razorback Records of which they signed to by the end of 1998. Later, the band recorded and released their debut album “Death Metal Attack 2” in 1999 which had eleven new songs with the re-recorded demo songs as bonus material. The band got great reviews from their unique spin on deathgrind and the band truly entered the realm of the underground with a core fanbase to follow their footsteps.

The band then released their after some splits with Impaled and Fuck… I’m Dead in 2002 and 2003 via No Escape Records and Discos Al Pacino. After they released their self-titled album in late 2002 via Deathvomit Records and they toured with Lord Gore and Impaled in California to promote their second album.

    Seriously, the hate for WMD is uncalled for. Werewolf Militia alone is reason enough to love that fucking album. That being said...this band's discog is more solid than my dick after listening to a song by them.

    "I really don't get all this hate towards Where Monsters Dwell. I like constant grinding as much as the next person, but how you can frown on more thrash riffs and cthulhu? Just like Fornicator, a little restraint can make it so much more brutal. " Looks like just one guy posting over and over to me... probably some flame war fall out or some retarded shit like that.

    The first two albums are amazing. I still play them often. Everything afterwards is pretty weak.

    I like WMD and DMA2 waaaay better than the s/t. WMD is by far the most popular of the 3 though.

    I don't know why people don't like WMD. I think it's an excellent album.

    Ah, the inevitable weighing in of one of the Ghoul trolls. Yawn. Dave and Akkad's vocals both kicked ass, but anyone who's seen Engorged live anytime in the past 4 years knows they sound fucking amazing with Sean on vocals... but whatever.
