Fayetteville's Vore has mastered — and remained true to — mid-tempo death metal like no other band in the state, or arguably, in the country. Since 1994, the band (Page Townsley on guitar and vocals, Jeremy Partin on bass and Remy Cameron on drums) has released four full-lengths of chugging, classic death metal in the vein of Morbid Angel, Death, Bolt Thrower and Obituary. Vore has shared stages with many of death metal's leading lights over the years, including Deicide, Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Carcass and the mighty Manowar. The band's latest, 2011's "Gravehammer," has gotten glowing reviews from critics, including Metalreview.com's Jordan Campbell, who wrote that the album "further cements Vore as a death metal fan's death metal band."
