First and foremost, I'd like to mention that it's been nearly a decade since I first heard Scum and I have been a fan since. Scum and LSP is one of the few that I will always have respect for, and do whatever I can to help promote. So while some may say this review may be a little bias, I promise you, if you pick this album up, your conclusion will most likely match that of mine. If you are currently a fan of Scum's, but haven't had the chance or the change to pick up The GoreFather, I will state now, that this, in my opinion, is by far his best work. Here is a track by track overview of the album.
1. The titled track "The GoreFather" sets the pace for the album. Pain, Blood, Suffering, and Murder. Like a Russian mafia boss, Scum proclaims the destiny of those deserving to die in graphical detail.
2. Snuff films are a motion picture genre that depicts the actual murder of a person or people, without the aid of special effects, for the express purpose of distribution and entertainment or financial exploitation. The track "Snuff" features SCE's Bloodshot and paints a perfect picture of sadomasochist sex on film. Both Scum and Bloody go beast mode on this one.
3. "Life Sick" describes a day before death. To have a blast with the death of others before the death of themselves. Featuring some good ole wicked shit from Insane Poetry and Liquid Assassin.
4. What happens when a relationship gets ugly and love turns to hate? "Love Gone Bad" gives you blood stains on the floor and blood stains on the walls. That thin line between love and hate..and there is no peaceful solution. It happens.
5. "On My Way To My Casket" features the wicked harmony of LSP's Smallz One, giving the sound of death by suicide a sense of angelic resolve when all hope is gone. Emotionally excellent.
6. The sixth sense of seeing those of the afterlife haunt many, yet still unexplainable. "I See Dead People" gives you a look into Scum's visions of the dead.
7. "Koo Koo" gives us a look into the unstable mind of Scum. We are all a little fucked up in the head, but you can bet Scum just might be a little bit more.
8. When murder happens who is to blame? The individual that committed the crime? the gun itself? The answer is NO. Blame the parents, for if murderers were never born, the gruesome acts of violence and murder wouldn't have happened. Dad should have wore a condom and Mom should have aborted. Makes complete sense in "Blame My Parents".
9. The messenger of death invites us into the world of the "Enforca". Murder for Hire. Who you gonna call?
10. Scum collabs with label mate Mastamind of Natas and Kill the Carver in "Shootin Motherfuckaz". Kill Music at it's finest. Reminds me of some Sick Mother fuckers.
11. A Scum fucking reject and fucking proud of it. "Reject" is my jam. I was unfamiliar with the feature of T.W.G.W., but after hearing this track, I recognized that they were the ones fucking rockin this dope ass metal track. That Which Grows Within.
12. "My Drugs" is my favorite track From the hook to the lyrical flow from Scum, Potluck, and Flatline. This track is the shit. Stay fucked up daily. Thats like my anthem. Feel this! Drugs are great and so is this track!
13. Crack goes your collar bone..crack goes your spine. Watch what you say or you might become headless from the "Decapitataz". Mutha fuckin Fleezy makes a cameo collab on this on along with Troubled Minds.
14. "InkBlots" goes back to the Russian roots of Scum. The melodic beat sets the pace to a song in which I don't understand half of due to it being a foreign language, but even so, this track is dope with a special feature from Kardinal Blunt.
15. Intoxication and murder. A combination found when Scum, Leaders of the Lost, and Dark Half lose it and go "Off The Hingez" for this sadistic collaboration. All come correct.
16. Not like anyone you know, not another clone. Fiasco joins the track "MMFS". Not afraid to stand alone , Surviving on their own. LSP..thats whats up.
17. "All fucked up" cutting titties off. It's not a date, its a date rape. Go into Scum's basement and witness some truly sick Shit!
18. No instruments needed. Straight beat box. De Jangles, the Shoestring King, blows this track up with selfmade sounds "Unplugged". Plus some more sick shit from Scum's lyrical blasphemy book.
19. No forgiveness, No remorse, No Love. Take whats his and death is certain. Never try to take what's "Mine". Listen to what happens.. it aint pretty.
20. What happens on a trail of a killing spree? "Bodiez" ..everywhere. Listen to this disposal. Scum blazes lyrics like a body in a crematorium. God Damn.
21. "Denver City" gives props to the home of 303 and LSP. Always showing respect where respect is due!
At this point, the cd ends. I then press play and it starts all over again... and again...and again..
Like I said, best Scum album to date. LSP is on the rise of devastating greatness, and the man behind The GoreFather is the reason.
The album is flawless. The production, which includes beats by Fiasco Andretti, PitchBull, Mozart Jones, Sku, Sicktanick, Underrated, Kardinal Blunt, JP tha Hustler, De Jangles, and Henry Alas, is excellent.
I give the album 10/10 and a big Hellz yeah!
