Exhumed / Gadget is a split release by Swedish grindcore act Gadget and American grindcore act Exhumed. The split was released in 2001 by Relapse Records.
There are 7 tracks in all on the 13:07 minute long split. Obviously most of the tracks on the split are very short. The 3 Exhumed tracks are in their typical goregrind/ early Carcass influenced style. They even play a cover of the classic Carcass track Exhume to Consume. Gadget´s 4 tracks are more in the Napalm Death tradition with touches of the crust grindcore sound that a band like Nasum are famous for. Gadget are often compared to Nasum and rightly so IMO. At least based on the 4 tracks that are featured here.
The sound quality is pretty lo-fi and in Exhumed´s case downright filhty.
This split is more than anything a fan release, and while the quality isn´t bad it´s not really good either and a 2 star rating is warranted.
