SAPREMIA: Local sickos that will bludgeon your senses with total old school groove, catchy riffs and killer death vokills. Sapremia was one of the premier Death Metal acts in the early 1990â€™s, hailing from Southern New Jersey, USA. Touring took them around the United States and their two demo releases reached the ends of the globe. They reformed in 2006 and had the first show back on January 26th, 2007. Sapremia was then signed by Open Grave Records in early 2007 and produced the acclaimed EP Hollow, which had five fresh tracks, plus 10 bonus tracks featuring the 1994 demo Existence of Torture and the 1992 demo Subconscious Rot, later that year. 2008 saw the release of their very first full length, With Winter Comes Despair, which then spawned a 15 song DVD, Live Despair.
Abnormality: Pure Death is really excited to bring back these crazed death filled maniacs on the heals of their Las Vegas Deathfest roadtrip and the release of a new CD! Abnormality is an extreme metal band hailing from Massachusetts, United States. Purveying a female fronted violent hybrid of the heaviest subgenres in metal, Abnormality mixes technicality and speed with devastating grooves. Taking from a wide range of influences, Abnormality captures the speed and unrelenting viciousness of Hate Eternal and Origin and infuses it with grooves and hooks more reminiscent of Suffocation and Deeds of Flesh. Abnormality came together in 2005, and now features seasoned members Mallika, Jay, Josh, Ben, and Jeremy, all hailing from various underground acts such as Goratory, Ascendancy, Sexcrement, Revengeance, and Iranach. Abnormality strives to bury the weak female fronted gimmick, and deliver a brutal sonic experience that death metal fans cannot deny.
Dehumanized: Brutal Death Metal from NY that brings a unique style of pit wrenching slams and destroying grinds without sacrificing cool grooves and catchy riffs. Definitely sick live! A performance you don't want to miss!
POLTERCHRIST: Polterchrist brings extreme, hate filled, and technically precise Death/Black Metal to the mix of this sick show. This Philly wrecking crew is working on a new release and are looking forward to making your neck real sore.
Visceral Disgorge: VD will bring a perfect balance of unostentatious technicality, outright brutality, and ass-clobberin' slammage to this gig. They are definitely not for the weak, get ready to be bludgeoned!
Impiety: Singaporean black death warmachine, which has a winding history that spans over two decades, is a champion of the underworld having released a host of crushing albums that consistently push the boundaries of extreme. IMPIETY, with their vibrant history as the first band to put Singapore on the extreme metal map, has grown rapidly in recent years with a fearsome reputation of being a no-holds-barred ferocious live act sitting proud and high at the blackened elite throne of blasphemy. Asian and Arrogant!
Woe: A Philadelphia/South Jersey band, created to make black metal (early 2007). Intended as nothing more than a casual experiment, it changed from bedroom project, to an obsession. The rules - no: drum machines, corpse paint, â€˜Renaissance faerie-speak or faking - Honest, dark black metal, faithful to tradition & without cliches. Woe plays aggressive, hypnotic music, with themes of Satanism, elitism, & loss.
Funerus: Low end sewage style death metal featuring John McEntee (Incantation) and wife Jill along with Sam Inzerra (Mortician, Morpheus Descends) bringing back sounds of Filth from the early days of Death! Sick and twisted old school!
SAPREMIA: A local sick old school death metal band with roots that go way back to 1990! These guys really tear it up with great groove, awesome riffs, killer vokills and over all pulverizing sickness!
Cannabis Corpse: Death Metal-Cannabis Corpse was formed in the summer of 2006 as a way to express our love of smoking weed and listening to Cannibal Corpse. We thought that combining the speed and intensity of death metal with outlandish stories involving marijuana monsters, weed cults ect. would be a fresh take on the genre. Cannabis Corpse are not a joke band. Sure, they'll fire up a bowl and chug a beer, but then they'll rip your face off with a brutal old-school death metal assault, the likes of which haven't been seen since the seeds of the genre first began to grow.
Mortal Decay: Technical Brutal Death Metal-For over 20 years, Mortal Decay has been one of the premier forces in death metal. Having performed on both sides of the continent, their music has showcased their technical abilities while still retaining brutality. As trends in music come and go, Mortal Decay consistently perform a unique brand of death metal with astounding songwriting abilities.
Putrid Pile: Brutal Death Metal-One man wrecking crew that creates the most intense sickest guttural death metal in the world. Plenty of groove to fire up a circle pit to hell!
The Gurchick Tree: Brutal Slamming Death-South Jersey's kings of brutal slam return home for a show for the ages!
I Am The Trireme: Symphonic Blackened Death-Few bands in the area can match the ferocity and sheer brutal combination of melodic death and vile symphonic black metal that I Am The Trireme (pronounced "i am the tri' reem") has conjured. Hailing from Philadelphia PA, IATT bring forth a relentless, fast paced, crushing wall of blackened brutality and haunting melodies.
Short Bus Pile Up: Brutal Death Grind Slam-These slamming lunatics are ready to define their band name in grand fashion.
