well, it's been many, many years since I first saw a bunch of 15-year-old kids

jumping around on stage, calling one of their friends or brothers) from acephalus (i think) and others, and then having everyone in the pit, lead by adam, run around punching each other...

to a bunch of 19-year-old kids who jump around on stage, calling people to come up and sing along with them, and then having everyone in the pit, lead by adam, run around punching each other...

however, now, they have one of the best CDs of 2004 under thier belts.

these are the facts as far as I know
if they are wrong, post corrections please

they have gone through a lot of different member over the years, but the "core" members of
Adam (vocals) and

Al (guitar)

have kept the band going.

bassplayers: at some point, they lost their original bass player (max) to trauma concept.

Zak came in for a year or 2. he brought in some of the craziest sounding bass lines ever. stuff that I hear a lot of other bands copying from.

now, he's gone and Max (currently with burn in silence) is back.

drummers: Jay was the original drummer

when I heard that he left the band, I was shocked. I figured that they would never find someone that could fill his shoes... I was expecially surprised when like a day later, in walks Darren:

he is a berkeley trained drumming machine from hell.

as for guitarists, I know at one point they had 2 of them... but that's all I know. Actually, our own RustedAngel was going to play second guitar for them, but mass has 2 marlboro____s.


anyhow, for such young kids, they have toured in Europe and Japan! and influenced a boat load of bands out there. Their new CD definitely is killer and besides that, they have 3 other releases (2 CD & 1 7"). Their current line up is sort of going in a couple different directions.
Zak is out, Max is back in.
Max (playing for burn in silence) brought Al into BIS with him (proof http://www.zeroflesh.com/gallery/albums/promo/BIS/bispro5.jpg)
Darren is drumming for pillory and doing other studio projects.
it was rumored and feared that goratory would break up and go into the history of New England, but it just looks like they've slowed down a bit after all the touring since the release of the new CD.

oh, sorry brianBDM, the mud wrestling CD release of the century didn't happen...

A little trivia:

Pathos Productions was originally going to release the "Sexual Intercorpse" CD but when Nick (2nd vocalist) left the band, he was the only contact I had!

There are a few promo CDs out there saying "coming soon on Pathos".

thanks alot Rev. I appreciate you for appreciating us, means alot. and holy shit does this make me think of how many members we have been through.

"you should actually call this the thank you Compost Pile thread"
hahaha, thats fucking awesome. Compost Pile was fucking sick. I actually just found a comp. in Maine with them on it and picked it up. It must have been sitting in the store for 5 or so years. Members from Compile that played in Goratory:
Dana - guitars
Jay - Drums
Max - bass for them right before they split up
Ryan -played guitar for us for only the first practice
Joe - took Jay's place for them but joined us on Vocals

Ya, we are taking it slow because we are all busy with our other projects right now but once Max is up to speed we will continue playing out starting with Feb 26 in Natick and we will be going to Europe for a month with Fleshless in May.

Jay just came over to party with us this weekend. It was cool to have him down, he said he is still playing drums alot. I know Dana has another band with the guys from Blistered Earth. It reminds me alot of Compost Pile, i dig it. And ya, i had heard that Jay and Bill jammed once or twice but i'm not sure if it was compost pile tunes or not. I'm down to see a reunion. Dude, don't you live in Natick, you should come party one of these nights.

Being so close to the band, it can be easy to get caught up in these promiscuous escapades but I am proud to say that I have never had sex with any of the members, their mothers, their girlfriends, or their girlfriend's mothers.

YOU BETTER ASK SOMEBODY MOTHERFUCKER, it is so fuckin great to see this band focused upon for a few minutes (at least). Greatest fuckin picture section, good thing you left out that Burger King hat that somehow fit Alan perfectly, pun highly intended.
Return to the pit has been so good to Goratory, since the very beginning there's only been about two or three shows in New England that this site hasn't covered. Serious Cred, Rev, serious.
I have known this band for a long ass time, maybe too long. All pre-6th grade stories aside, I remember thinking Alan was the baddest motherfucker on the planet for wearing black nail polish and having marylin manson posters in his locker and Adam introducing me to metal via Napalm Death's "From Enslavement to Obliteration" while fuckin Daisy Fuentes told us "ain't nuttin but a g thang" was #1 again. And Max used to sell me drugs.
Some of the best times of my life were spent at the old Goratory practice space with Dana makin fuckin drinks in the blender while Nick's trying to get his swerve on with like 8 chicks from Alaska, with the band playing "Shout at the Devil", Max drinking his patented "budweiser and captain's", with hippie chicks and local bands and everybody dancing, i mean pitting, pitting. Drinking down there after the Cephalic/Dying Fetus show with Max and myself trying to contain the LSD-induced madness of these "core members" you speak of (take that nazi metal bands). The amount of toxicants and trash that the practice space floor obsorbed over the years truly impresses me. One square inch of the floor is worth 6o bills if you sling it on the corner. I remember my ex-girlfriend literelly being scared for her life at the Box of Knives show (still the best American date, hands down)you can see why in the pictures.
The music that these freaks make is not empty musical violence. Darren is a fucking scientist (and it's spelled fuckin BERKLEE, cred.) and Alan is a fucking madman. I remember spending the holidays at Alan's girls place and having our friend (who later totalled alan's car in a terrible accident) out on the back lawn on stilts getting shot at by alan equipped with a bee bee gun and myself armed with various bottles and broken ornaments. brian hunting season.
I brought a girl home from school one weekend , trying to show her a good time by bringing her down to band practice and party. As we got a few drinks in us, Jay began to ask this girl about her menstrual cycle. This was between Intercorpse and OID and they were searching for samples. Jay interrupted her to go out to his car and grab his tape recorder from the car and proceeded to tape record her personal period observations until the tape ran out. A lot of talk about black gunk.
The rejected song title pool is my favorite: Necroincest(mason), Vaginal Aneurysm(macalpine), Pounding the Colostomy Socket(parente), Penial Blender(parente), Ziploc Surprise(parente) Your Cunt Looks Like An M-80 Went Off Inside A Dixy Cup Full of Ham Salad(santello), Pacific Blumpkin (pappas) Count Poopula and the Choco Flavored Butt Flakes, Part of you Well-Balanced Fuckfest (cantor, mason, glassman, st. germaine)and many more. Some of my fine contributions have been: Sexual Intercorpse, Total Eclipse of the Fart and Get Drunk or Die Trying (the tour.....bitches).
I don't mean to come off belligerant (p.i) but if any band has a more disgusting, brutal, or interesting band history, drummer or lead composer speak now or forever crap your pants. like, I feel like a pussy for not having at least stabbed one of my bandmates. And the only non-drumming performer from New England with better syncopation and rythmic technique than Adam Mason is Chick Corea.
All that business aside I by no means want to speak for the band as a whole but, I strongly suggest, take some acid and go to a Goratory show. Chances are someone will be there to punch you in the face, hump your leg or feed you booze, or all three at the same time.

If anyone is down for having a five year reunion/roast for these drugged out downsyndrome fucks I'm game, I'll bring the P-Funk.
I'll leave you with some Goratory trivia, take care, hope to see you on the 26th!
1.What was the first song ever to be penned by Goratory and what release is it on?
2.Who did the graphics for the "Wrestling With Feces" promo disc?

ODE TO GORATORY...........where do i start..........well, adam is the best, most entertaining, original vocalist in all of death metal, just hearing his vocals and the diversity of his screams, lows, highs, and in betweens, you are left a mental patient. al is sound guitarist and a songwriter, one of the most genuine people on this earth. flowing, one riff to the next. darren is conceided, and slightly over-rated. the shots he took at jay about having "a lot to learn" are completely worm. great drums on rice on suede, but have we heard jay on that album? no! rice on suede is a masterpiece. goratory are the forefront of, what i call, and someothers might.......3rd generation death metal (eventhough they emerged somewhere in the 2nd gen era). so many brutal death metal bands sound so similar. al and adam have created their own idenity that is unchallenged. when you think suffocation, you might think....decrepit birth, when you think cannibal corpse, you might think vile. when you think disgorge, you might think disgorge (mex). when you think goratory, you think........GORATORY......EHHHH....EHHHH.....UHHH...UUHHH EHHH EHHH. (and by no means am i slagging any of the aformentioned bands). Ode to goratory!!! for straying from replication something thats been done and old. grateful they are so close to home. for any sports fans who relish the pats and the sox as champions.......we also got, within the death metal community......new englands own...GORATORY.
