Oh yes, here there is another legend of pathological grindcore/death metal directly from the land of Tre kronor, GENERAL SURGERY!!! 

There is scarcely anyone who would not know their legendary demo „Erosive Offals“ or an EP „Necrology“ that were really the top works of the genre back then in 1990–1991 and compared to the early Carcass albums by the magazine reviews. The band went through several line-up changes and in 2003 the reformed band rose from the dead and recorded a split EP with an American band called The County Medical Examiners and in the end their debut album „Left Hand Pathology“ for Listenable Records.

It's quite rare to see GENERAL SURGERY live but the band members are also very active in several other bands like Regurgitate, Dismember, Nasum or Birdflesh. However, OEF 2018 will have a great experience for us as GENERAL SURGERY will play their legendary „Necrology“ EP in it's entirety with the original singer Grant McWilliams.

So, with that, let me pass the mic to Dr. McWilliams:

"30 years of gore-soaked insanity in the GENERAL SURGERY operating room have passed, and what better way to celebrate than to perform at one of the prime festivals for such noise, OEF. For this anniversary they’ve somehow managed to dust off their old vocalist to once again temporarily join their ranks in order to achieve the proper chaos of the songs that  started it all.

The surgeons will be bringing their own brand of offal infested metal to the stage and letting my good self, Dr. McWilliams, bring my own peculiar tinge to the sing-along anthems of Necrology. All this in order to properly come to the soul crushing realization of their mortality and the fact that they're really old."

Prepare yourself orderly and don your protective clothing - get ready for a full performance of the Necrology EP along with choice cuts from the surgery team's entire putrid discography. If that's not something to look forward to, we don't know what is.

We are very happy GENERAL SURGERY have found the time and will come to Trutnov for the fifth time to show you a real dissection looks like at OEF!!! Well, let's hand them the scalpels!!!
