Debut album from British band Cancer. Mixed at the infamous Morrisound Studio's in Tampa Florida during the 90s Deathmetal boom and by the famed producer of the time, Scott Burns. Maybe budget restraints was why Tim Lewis of Loco Studios is why this recording sounds so custy. If you like early low budget Death/Trash metal then this is for you. If like me you are a fan of any thing Morrisound and Scott Burns related then this album is still worth adding to your collection.

To the Gory End was their debut, released in 1990 just as death metal was about to explode. The year saw the debuts of Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Entombed, and Napalm Death's new lineup with Barney, Mitch, and Jesse. Death released Spiritual Healing, and Obituary put out Cause of Death. In the midst of all these death metal giants, Cancer couldn't quite measure up in terms of overall songwriting and sound. Especially in the vocal department, they didn't quite meet the level of their competetion. I highly urge any fans of Death, Obituary or Carcass to pick up this killer debut album from Cancer. Then, get Death Shall Rise and The Sins of Mankind.
Listening to Cancer’s debut, To The Gory End, feels very much like that. From start to finish, To The Gory End is one precise, directed aural assault. Imperial, titanic riffs explode around the listener like mortars, while bullet-like drum beats fly by and a low, raspy voice narrates your demise. Not a single moment is wasted, and every single note feels like it’s absolutely essential to the album as a whole, causing the short opus (it lasts for little more than half of an hour) to feel very calculated. Truth be told, the above descriptions could apply to numerous old-school death metal albums. If so, what exactly is it that makes To The Gory End so special" Simple: all of the riffs, in their maggoty, disgusting glory, are impossibly infectious.
Their debut To the Gory End, while not their best album (that honor should go to its followup Death Shall Rises), was a reasonably primal hybrid of the death and thrash genres that always reminds me very heavily of another, more popular act from this period. And that would be Brazilians Sepultura, circa 1987-1989. The album as a whole is a nice trip and specific highlights would be the best two songs Cancer Fucking Cancer and Into The Acid with opener Bloodbath and To The Gory End following closely. Everything falls into place here. The production, the songwriting, the vocals.
