WELCOME TO HELL! Volume 1
Welcome to hell motherfuckers!
This is your Demon from hell, Mike Abominator, and tonight I have come here to talk about some bands that I have been playing like crazy and I want to share them with you so you can stop being a pussy, and listen to some REAL metal and some REAL underground bands.
No, don’t try and tell me about your band and try and get featured on here. If I like your band, I will find you. All great underground maniacs feel free to add me on myspace at www.myspace.com/mikeabominator666. If you are in a band, feel free to add me as well. BUT! AND A HUGE BUT! Don’t bother if your band photo consists of cocked sideways baseball hats and tight, colorful shirts, tight pants and emo haircuts. If your music has typewriter drums, and cookie monster vocals with pig squeels, and 100,000 gay guitar riffs in one song, DON’T BOTHER! Also anything “symphonic” or “progressive” or any of that “happy thrash” shit, DON’T BOTHER! You want to mix Rush/Yes, or be a black metal Yanni, knock yourself out, just stay the fuck away from me!
This blog will feature true bands that play the sickest forms of underground metal, that is usually influenced, or from THE OLD SCHOOL. Old school death metal, classic style black metal, classic style grind core, brutal ass crust/punk, dark and black thrash, and even bands that meld a couple of those styles, or all of them, will be featured here. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I have gone at it already to new school posers on here in the past, and you can piss and moan and whine all you want about your pseudo extreme metal bands that you jerk off to, but this is my blog so go fuck yourself!
Anyway, enough with the introduction of my blog, let’s get to the music. A few of the bands that I have been killing to the past few days, hmmm, where to start. Well let’s start with CARDIAC ARREST. My friends from Illinois. Awesome horror movie influenced, old school death metal/grind. The have 2 classic albums already out “Morgue Mutilations” and “Cadaverous Presence”. And now in 2010, we will see their 3rd album coming out, “Haven For The Insane”. These sickos are going to be considered a classic death metal band when it’s all said and done! Check them out live when you get a chance, they will be at both major mid west fests this year, Michigan Death Fest and Central Illinois Metal Fest. And they have quite a bit of merchandise you can buy! Check them out at www.myspace.com/deathrot.
Another US old school styled death metal band that I have been playing lately is INVASION from Indiana. These maniacs play a great thrashing, almost Swedish death metal style that brings back the memories of yore (blood, guts and war! haha). After being around on and off for the last few years, and putting out releases here and there, Invasion will be unleashing their album in 2010. They are currently looking for a label to properly get the warfare out there to the masses, so keep an eye out for this band! www.myspace.com/saturationbombing.
My friend JoJo at Reinig Records is now planning world domination, or at least going to be putting out some killer collectible 7 inch records this year as well as CD/Vinyl fomats. The kick off release is BUNKER 66 from Italy! This band is endorsed by Fenriz himself. If you like the same stuff that he does, then this is perfect for you. Those who don’t know what I’m talking about: Bunker 66 play a killer style of 1980s death/thrash/black metal. Total attitude with the denim, leather, spikes and bullet belts. Also has that killer crusty Discharge influence in there. The EP “Out Of The Bunker” is out on CD/12 Inch. Go and check out these Italian maniacs at www.myspace.com/bunker66.
And last but not least for now, is the mighty BLOODFIEND from Argentina. These sickos play some of the best old school death metal to come out in quite a while. A great mix of Swedish death, and the classic mid west US death (Cianide/Master). When I found these guys on myspace, I felt like Indiana Jones finding the lost artifact! They were very unknown and even new to the worldwide underground. So THESE guys are one of the best examples of why I’m doing this! I have the 3 song promo of Bloodfiend and I will tell you, expect GREAT things from these guys in 2010. Look out for the next release they do, they are currently unsigned, but that won’t last long! Keep in contact with them at www.myspace.com/bloodfienddeathmetal.
OK everyone. If you are still reading this and not cursing me with lame and gay insults, then you are one of the true that gets it! HAILS TO YOU! Just a little self promo here: as always, keep an eye out for GRAVEHILL at www.myspace.com/gravehill666. We are currently in Hellheim, getting ready to unleash the new album “Pravus Tyrannis” on Ibex Moon Records. And Sin City, Las Vegas get ready for our death machine attack on Feb 20th featuring Spun In Darkness. And Texas, we will be destroying San Antonio Feb 26th, Houston Feb 27th and Austin Feb 28th with our brothers in death HOD, Blaspherian and Disfigured. I also have my regular blog on myspace: CHECK THIS BAND OUT and I have been helping out with the Webzine THE WERKSHED on myspace as well at www.myspace.com/bongfromhell. This zine will grow and expand in the near future. So far I have some killer interviews with Chris Reifert, Fenriz, and up and coming Socal locals Crepitus, Witchaven and Unholy Lust. Plus reviews of some of the latest releases coming out on Candlelight, Hell’s Headbangers and Ibex Moon. So go to this link for the zine and hit the blogs! KILL POSERS DEAD! -MA
