Gorgasm is certainly no stranger to CDF as this will now be their 4th appearance on the fest however here is little history.. Gorgasm is a BDM band from Chicago, Illinois they were formed in 1994 from the ashes of another band named Crematorium when guitarists Damian Leski and Tom Tangalos joined forces with bassist Russ Powell and drummer Derek Hoffman to create an ultra sick and perverse band that ended becoming one of the standard bearers of brutal death metal consistently setting the bar which each release for bands in this style.
Following a 2 year period of inactivity where they were split up from 2008-2010, they then returned and remain active to this day in 2020. despite numerous lineup changes they remain a powerhouse of unrelenting brutality 26 years since their inception. Their lyrical content and song names are heavily splattered with perversion, murder, gore, and torture.
They have undergone quite a few lineup changes over the years and the only remaining member from the original lineup is guitarist/vocalist Damian Leski who has been there since the very beginning. They have played and toured various parts of the world and also have been featured on some of the most illustrious fests in the underground music scene.
