The drums are thunderous, the vocals demonic and the guitars down-tuned, down-tempo and down-right sexy. This is not doom, this is not sludge, THIS IS GURT!
GURT proudly wear the title of ‘PARTY DOOM’, as described of them by a host of reviewers and fans. They are the physical embodiment of that sound, as much about brutality as they are about fun. Marrying ‘dainty moves and thunderous grooves’, GURT truly embrace all that is filthy about sludge, heavy about metal, and catchy about pop!
GURT have been bringing the gravity since 2010, relentlessly touring the UK and Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Weedeater, Red Fang, Dopethrone, The Sword, Hark, Raging Speedhorn & Black Tusk. They have had three appearances at Desertfest London, appeared twice at UK’s Bloodstock Open Air and now have set their sights on the rest of the world, the Moon and beyond!
Here is Gurt performing ‘Horrendosaurus’ live down Boston Music Rooms.
Not ones to sit idly, since their inception, GURT have to date released two albums, five EPs and three splits. They are known to make some unconventional choices for cover songs by metal bands, such as Baggy Trousers by Madness, and Psycho Killer by Talking Heads and have also ruined two beloved Christmas songs!
2014 was a momentous year for the band. It saw the release of GURT’s debut album ‘HORRENDOSAURUS’, along with a three week European tour with Dopethrone (CAN) to promote the album and an outstanding first appearance at Bloodstock Open Air Festival.

In 2017 GURT released their second full length record, ‘SKULLOSSUS’ to high praise from fans and critics. They embarked on two UK tours and were invited to perform at Bloodstock for the 2nd time.

‘A brutal, sexy, funky piece of orgiastic hedonism’ – 9.5/10
GURT are driving straight ahead into 2018, already planning the next records, to keep getting out on the road to ever new places, including another European tour in the summer.
Let’s see what Gareth Kelly has to say about Vocalzone!
“Ever since starting the band I have been using vocalzone as it does help a great deal with when my voice has been pushed and needing some TLC, and being a massive fan of mint tea before heading out on stage their mint and Myrhh range is my new favourite pre scream tipple!”
