The band was formed in 1991 and after two demos, "Spoilt By Greed" in 1991 and "Hanging Down the Sounds" in 1993, they released their first EP, Cognitive Sinergy in 1997. In 1999, they self-released, Art Bleeds. By 2004, the line-up consisted of the vocalist Adry Bellant, drummer Joe Laviola, bass guitarist Fredrick and guitarist Raff. In October 2004, the band was requested by AreaDeath Productions to donate their cover version of "1000 Eyes" to a Chinese Death tribute album Unforgotten Past – A Tribute to Chuck Schuldiner. In January 2005, they signed to Mascot Records of Holland. In early 2006, Skymorphosis, was released by Mascot Records and in January 2007, Bellant left the band and was replaced by Clode. In February, they toured with Amoral in Italy. Their third album, Graveyard of Angels, with the vocalist Domenico Roviello, was released on April 6, 2009, by Mascot Records. After touring Italy to promote the Graveyard album, Gory Blister began writing new songs. Guitarist / vocalist Karl Sanders from U.S. death metal band Nile joined the band to sing as a guest vocalist on two tracks for this fourth album. In April 2012 Gory Blister released via BeckerTeam Records, a division of Scarlet Records, their fourth album titled Earth-Sick, with a new singer named John. The new work contains 10 new songs of pure, and technical, brutal, death metal.
