Fulci – Gore Life: A Video Breakdown



Lucio Fulci was the Italian director/writer behind such horror films as Zombi 2 and The Beyond. It only makes sense that there’s a slamtastic, goreriffic band would name themselves after a man who put this bit of gruesomeness in a movie. The band Fulci, also from Italy, takes their name from “The Godfather Of Gore” and focuses their lyrical content on zombies and violence. Not exactly breaking new ground, to be sure, but as the old saying goes, “If you’re going to be dumb, be dumb to the best of your ability.” At least, that should be an old saying. Regardless, Fulci have bestowed upon us their new music for the song “Gore Life” via the Slamwise Gamgees from Slam Worldwide. Be sure to have some Wet-Naps ready.

0:07: If this turns out to be a homemade porn, I’m going to be very upset.

0:47: That’s the “I shouldn’t have eaten so many enchiladas” face.
0:54: When you’re hard as fuck, but everyone around you is a skeleton.
0:59: The Undertaker’s European counterpart, The Fulcitaker.
1:06: So is “Gore Life” like “Thug Life” for weird, white guys?
1:11: So this band is just the guitarist and the vocalist?
1:17: Rolling down the cemetery, sippin’ on gin and juice…
1:22: If he was a real Obituary fan, his flannel would have a camo design.
1:26: Everything’s so green!

1:57: Fulci specialize in a new sub-genre: Italian Squatcore.
2:06: I love that they didn’t even bother to find a drummer to at least pretend to be in the band.
2:14: Obligatory “gabagool” reference.
2:22: If you light a red candle and stare into a mirror while listening to this song, a pair of mosh shirts appears around your waist.
2:28: You know what this video needs? A low-rider bouncing through the aisles of the cemetary.

2:57: Can someone please fix the tracking on this digital video? Thanks.

Fulci’s album Opening The Hell Gates is available now (because it was released back in 2015. I guess they needed over a year to make this complex video a reality) via Despise The Sun Records.
