Death-metal supergroup Gruesome are playing some summer dates in erstwhile death metal capitol Florida and, yeah, they're playing Orlando.

With a lineup that has boasted former features members of heavies like Exhumed, Possessed and Malevolent Creation, Gruesome did in old-fashioned blood-soaked metal that calls to mind greats like Death and Autopsy. We witnessed their last headlining show in front of a packed house at the Haven in 2016, and they're the real deal.

Idly wondering if the band will take any inspiration for future material from their travels in Florida circa pandemic (there was a shocking lack of infectious disease-related songs on their classic debut album Savage Land).

Gruesome plays the Haven Lounge on Friday, July 9, with Intoxicated, Three Knuckles Deep and new local death-punks Human. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
