Mumbai deathgrind band Gutslit explores the darkest impulses of the notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the music video for “Altar of Putridity,” a track that served as the third single from their new full-length, Carnal. The band celebrated the album’s release by performing at Obscene Extreme 2023 on 07 July, aligning with the official release date.
“The composition at hand delves into the intricate depths of human depravity, drawing inspiration from the haunting figure of Jeffrey Dahmer, an embodiment of moral corruption and an indelible legend within the annals of serial killers. The magnitude of the devastation, carnage, and unfathomable tragedy he wrought in his wake reverberates throughout history, leaving an indelible mark on the collective consciousness.
“This poignant musical creation strives to encapsulate the very essence of Dahmer’s unremorseful and nonchalant disposition, a chilling manifestation of his contempt for the sanctity of life. Moreover, it seeks to shed light on the shocking reality of his perverse creativity, as he callously constructed an altar, an unholy sanctuary, fashioned from the remnants of his hapless victims. In this ghastly act, Dahmer, consumed by a godlike delusion, dared to elevate himself above mortal boundaries, cultivating a sense of invincibility and untouchability.
“Through haunting melodies and lyrical narratives, the song weaves a somber tapestry that invites contemplation on the depths of human darkness and the disturbing allure of those who transgress the very foundations of our moral fabric. It serves as a sobering reminder of the eternal struggle between good and evil, and the devastating consequences that arise when evil is left unchecked.”
