Portland's Lord Gore were both behind the times and ahead of it when they emerged 20 years ago with their blend of Impetigo, Autopsy and Carcass. Like old school death metal in general, the band has been experiencing a resurgence: This year saw the re-release of their first two albums, as well as their first album in 15 years, Scalpels For Blind Surgeons.

I spoke to Lord Gore vocalist Gurge about the band's early albums, their return, and how their mentality has changed since their first two releases. We also discussed the metal scene in Portland, and Gurge's vocal contributions to the stop motion short film Tomorrow I Will Be Dirt.

My thanks to Gurge for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
