THY ART IS MURDER furiously charges once more unto the breach, clawing and spitting against the dying light and a seemingly inevitable collapse of existence. Dear Desolation, the Australian metal crew’s fourth and mightiest album, is a devastating blow equally against and embracing of a cataclysmic nihilism and all-out misanthropic warfarehttps://www.facebook.com/decapitated

Volatile Progressive Grunge band with distinct Hardcore leanings. QUICKSAND would prove highly influential on the major Nu-Metal acts that would follow in their wake. The band was rooted in the New York Hardcore scene with vocalist Walter Schreifels credited with membership of both YOUTH OF TODAY and GORILLA BISCUITS, guitarist Tom Capone a member of BOLD, bass player Sergio Vega an ex-member of ABSOLUTION and drummer Alan Cage with BEYOND
At age 12, Tony picked up the guitar. He was later “discovered” in the pages of Guitar Player magazine by Mike Varney in 1984, and became a leader in the neoclassical guitar virtuoso movement of the mid to late 80s. MacAlpine was possibly the first new rock guitar instrumental artist of the 80s to break 100,000 units in the USA. His debut album Edge Of Insanity (1986) and sophomore release Maximum Security (1987) are cited by countless guitarists as major influences. Tony performed guitar and keyboards on Edge Of Insanity (with Billy Sheehan on bass and Steve Smith on drums), and all instruments (with the exception of drums by Deen Castronovo and Atma Anur) on Maximum Security, highlighting his musical dexterity. MacAlpine continued his extraordinary output into the 90s, with critically acclaimed releases Freedom to Fly (1992), Madness (1993), Premonition (1994) and Evolution (1995), which all remain among his discography’s best sellers.http://www.felixmartin.net/Felix_Martin/News/News.html

We don’t know how to make her stop screaming. We put a knife through her heart. We buried her in the ground. We gave her a funeral. We set the earth on fire. None of it did any good. The fire was screaming, the dirt was screaming, the knife was screaming, and the woman was screaming. Can you hear it?
