MACABRE (Nuclear Blast Records)
Formed in 1985:
vocalist/guitarist Corporate Death (Lance Lencioni),
bassist/vocalist Nefarious (Charles Lescewicz),
and drummer Dennis the Menace (Dennis Ritchie).
The trio is a vanguard of the style they’ve come to describe as “murder metal,” a ferocious mix of death metal, punk rock, grind, jazz fusion, thrash and folk melodies among other sounds with lyrics examining real-life stories of serial killers, mass murderers and more.
“Through years of touring, recording, and a constant desire to evolve, Kastasyde has shown itself as one of Chicago’s most exciting bands. Blending a mirage of influences including metal, blues, and rock, the band has created a sound that is unique unto itself. Kastasyde is currently recording a brand new album to be released in 2013, and will be taking their intense live show on the road upon its completion. Determined to be heard…Kastasyde is here to stay”
Formed from the ashes of Usurper in ’09, Apocalyptic Warlord (drums), Carcass Chris (guitars) and Jon Necromancer (bass/vox) are coming to bludgeon your brain with their unique brand of 3 chord heavy metal. Not exactly death metal, or punk, or black metal, but a weird hybrid of all forms of LOUD music.
REIGN INFERNO was formed in early 2010 with the sole purpose of creating the most disastrous music on the planet. Formed by current/former members of Dead For Days, Fleshgrind, Incrypted, and Jungle Rot, the band is now ready to introduce their ferocious, sometimes sardonic, view of the cruel and uncivilized world we live in to the masses. Time to open your eyes people!
