Excreting their malignant essence onto an unsuspecting Metal scene in 1998 with their confrontational debut full-length, “Gore Metal”, Exhumed have since become synonymous with the genre they helped brand. Their signature sound, a savage blend of snarling, grinding down-tuned guitars, alternately abrasively screeched and grotesquely gurgled vocals, and pummeling, straightforward drumming, have become universally recognized as the hallmarks of the style now called Gore Metal. Taking these elements several steps beyond their previous works, including the barbarically stripped-down, in-your-face approach of their sophomore effort, “Slaughtercult”, Exhumed have returned with their third full-length album, “Anatomy is Destiny”.
Three piece extreme metal from Portland, Oregon.
Punishment, cruelty, and death.
Formed in early 2016, grind/powerviolence group Escuela, features vocals from Katerina Economou, percussion by Jesse Fuentes (ex-Kill the Client, ex-Creator Destroyer, 1Fest, Mass Grindviolence), and guitars by Jason Eldridge (Hearse, ex-Monolith, ex-Body Without Organs), Jackson Kovalchik (Casas) and bass by Kris Morash(Your Brain on Drugs).
Although the members span from different parts of the country, the band is based out of Upstate New York, and Pittsfield, MA. Escuela has been making a name for themselves through a prolific touring schedule and releases including: a self-released EP “Non Serviam”, splits with Reeking Cross (D.C.), Violent Opposition(CA) and Disparo! (Australia), and two forthcoming splits and a full-length all scheduled for release in 2019.
Through punishingly short songs, Escuela delivers politically charged lyrics inspired by modern anxieties, unrest, and the roots of grindcore and powerviolence.
