Vörgus-White Trash Hellraisers

Infernö Records

Vörgus is a Stockholm, Sweden-based metal band that has been tearing up the scene since the early part of 2000. The fucking LOUD "White Trash Hellraisers" is the group's (long overdue, but much appreciated!) sophomore album and this insane release was recorded at ABF Studios Jakobsberg & Solna Sound Recordings in Sweden. With a grand total of 11 fist bangin' tracks in all(!), "White Trash Hellraisers" comes some seven years after the release of Vörgus' debut album, "Hellfueled Satanic Action", but given how crazy busy guitarist Straight-G's life seems to be (see below for proof*) one can easily understand why it took so long for this unholy beast to be unearthed! In addition to the shredtastic solos of returning ax man Straight-G, "White Trash Hellraisers" features the mad skills of longtime drummer, Mikke Killalot (Ad Infinitum, ex-Deformity, ex-Dysangelic, ex-Shadowsoul, ex-Sorg). Such consistency goes a long towards the overall success of Vorgues' second full-length studio album, but that's not the only thing that this release has in common with 2009's "Hellfueled Satanic Action". Just like it's predecessor, "White Trash Hellraisers" finds guitarist Mike Wead (King Diamond/Mercyful Fate) sitting in the producer's chair and it's a hell of a nice reunion to say the least! Mike Wead does an excellent job of keeping everyone and everything in check while always giving this down and dirty band plenty of room to full-out rage!! It's like a match made in heaven for these hell-riding metalheads and the end result speaks for itself! Now fronted by groovy cool bassist/vocalist Belze Bo (Killersmile), Vörgus has all but perfected their brutal mix of death, thrash metal, speed, traditionally heavy metal and Motörhead-inspired black n' roll. That much is evident by not only the great title cut (man I love it!), but such gems as "Sado Zombies", "Worst Nightmare", "Raising Hell", "Chainsaw", "Exterminator", and "Hellfuck 2015"! With everyone's favorite holiday right around the corner this bad ass batch of demonic songs might just make for the perfect soundtrack come Halloween. Especially for those ghouls and goblins out there that might be planing to engage in some good old-fashion mischief and mayhem! Heavier than hell itself and way more hot to the touch, "White Trash Hellraisers" will be out on October 20th so be sure to mark down the date! 

*Considered armed and dangerous with that lethal 6-string ax of his, Straight-G (Goatsodomizer, Morito Ergo Sum, ex-Deformity, Atomic Revelation, Baby Jesus Fetus, Black Wizards, Cadaver Gang, Cosmic Owl, Division Vansinne, Electric Mayhem, K.Y.M., Messias Doom Orchestra, S.B.D., Satanic Devil Pig, Slut Circus, Smoked Pony, The Curse, Trosskydd, ex-Burning Darkness, ex-Chainsaw, ex-Internal Decay, ex-Pandemonic) certainly has ties to a crap-load of bands. While I can't vouch for these other acts, Vörgus is fucking terrific when it comes to the guitar solos! From straight out speed metal to thrash rock this mosh-worthy recording has more than it's fair share of rip-roaring leads so take care to drive responsibly when under it's influence.
