History & BiographyGoretrade was formed in 2000 by Internal Suffering's Garcia. From the
beginning the idea behind the band was to create the heaviest possible
After playing live in Colombia, the band released two split-CDs,
respectively with Corpsefucking Art and Carnal.
The band then signed with Spain's Repulse Records in 2001. This label
soon went out of business and the band turned to the Dutch Displeased
Records instead. After a long delay, the band travelled to New York in
order to record its album. Five months after the recording, the label
issued the CD just prior to Christmas.
Members came and members went and with Vera's move to Sweden it became Vera and collaborators overtime. The act played at Gothenburg Deathfest in 2014. The band was opening for Tsjuder and Birdflesh in Colombia in 2023.
GORETRADE - RITUAL OF FLESH - DISPLEASED
For about ten seconds after inserting the CD into my player and soaking in this very heavy band it sounded like the review would be very positive. Goretrade's energetic and uncompromising attitude, a sound reminiscent of Disgorge and the general whiff of overpowering brutality were all positive harbingers. Alas, the Colombian aggressors rely too much on other bands to be cited positively. The riffs are very reliant on the Suffocation formula and the vocals a mixture of Sylvain of Kataklysm and the deep growl of Fleshgrind. In theory, it is a great death metal offering. In practice, the band is derivative and only recommended for the diehard who cares little for originality and only demands piles of US-style death metal. - Ali "The Metallian"
