SOUTHWICKED (U.S. / Europe) “Death’s Crown” CD review

by www.voicesfromthedarkside.de

By Nat Shapiro

The good old dirty south; America’s very own backyard of double standards: zealous Christianity on the surface, and a vibrant, sometimes violent but always debauched underbelly. From this underworld came bands like OBITUARY, MASSACRE, DEICIDE, etc. But while those bands were from the south, none of them announced their geographic origins. American bands as a whole never really hopped on the geography bandwagon – typically Norwegian Black Metal bands promoted their origins that way. True, there’s nothing specific about SOUTHWICKED. They could come from any number of southern cities. But they’re an American Death Metal band and I think, obviously, they have the south in mind when they write. If you like OBITUARY, you’ll dig this release. Allen West lets his guitar sing and it sounds great. But, good as this is, one could easily call it a forgotten OBITUARY album. Songs like the title track, ‘Death’s Crown’ and ‘Craving For Blood’ will induce the headbanging response, yet they will also leave you thinking about “The End Complete” and “Cause Of Death” and how West’s solos on this album sound so much like his older work. In addition to the inescapable OBITUARY element, some signs of SIX FEET UNDER appear, such as ‘Killing Spree’, which sounds like a left over song from the “Haunted” sessions. However, OBITUARY’s presence dominates nearly every aspect of this album. Just listen to ‘Graveyard Of Bones’ and you’ll see what I mean. So, if you’re a fan of Allen West, OBITUARY, and early SIX FEET UNDER, you’ll most certainly enjoy this. I know I did. www.facebook.com/southwicked, www.officialabyssrecords.com

RADIATION SICKNESS (U.S.) Interview by www.metalmaniacs.com

RADIATION SICKNESS (U.S.) Interview

by www.metalmaniacs.com

By Mike Abominator

Radiation Sickness is one of those bands that started off with a boom and then DISAPPEARED off the face of the earth. But they came back recently and have started to make some noise again. They were all over the underground back in the day. It seemed like every fanzine I got or every piece of mail I received had some sort of Radiation Sickness ad/flyer in it. Their demos and EPs are total underground classics. It’s killer to have this band back. I had to track down Doug Palmer, the singer of this band of lunatics, and see what they are up to! READ ON FREAKS!

1. Hails Doug ya maniac, thanks for doing this interview. How are things over in Indy land and Rad Sickness world? What are you lunatics up to?

DOUG: Mike,  just  living  the dream.  Back  in the metal  scene after 16 years locked  up in minivan hell  jail.  Putting  out some new re-leases, playing  some gigs.  Doing  interviews for  a heathen like yourself.

2. Radiation Sickness was formed back in 1987, while the old tape trading, fanzine era was in full force. How did you guys all get together?

DOUG: Drugs, booze  and  sick music.  I  met  Ryan somewhere  he  had  a  SOD  shirt on, me  a  Bathory.  It was metal hell  love at  first site. To bad the fucker  had  to  kill  himself  a  year or so later. RIP  Ryan.  Just a bunch of  kids into the underground  extreme music  scene.  Nothing less nothing more with nothing to do.

3. There were a couple of demos put out in 1988 and 1989, tell me about this time. Were you guys able to get those out to the worldwide underground? And how was the response?

DOUG: We  spent  a lot of  time  promoting  the  second  demo “Elvis ain’t  dead”.  The  first  demo sounded too poor  to  push (Man  the  way  Mark  Murray  made the first demo sound on  The  Madness Begins  87-90” is unreal).  It  got all  over  the  world. All of our  visits to  the  post  office, tape  trading hard work  back  then. Any response  was  a  good one,  you knew people  heard  it.

4. How was the underground scene in Indy back then? You guys had a mix of hardcore punk/death metal/grindcore. Did some people ever give you the “what in the fuck?” response that some extreme bands got?

DOUG: Indy  was  great  back then and  still  is they way I was welcomed back  was humbling.   I  loved  being   the band  that put Indianapolis on the map as far as extreme bands.  I  have got  the what the fuck my whole life. We hand so many influences and liked so much music we just wrote what  we liked. Here is what Radiation Sickness is:  Death Metal from  the ghetto,  Black Metal from the methadone clinic, Crust Grind from  the  graveyard.  We are  just RS man.

5. 1990 was a busy year for Radiation Sickness. The “Bounds of Reality” 7 inch was released on Putrefaction Records( at the time, also home to bands like Fatal, Agathocles, Order From Chaos, Arcturus and others!) This slab is now considered a classic. Also “The Other Me” 12 inch was put out by Old World Records, which this EP is ALSO considered a classic. Tell me about this time and how did you get in contact with those labels to put out those killer blasts of goodness?

DOUG: Andre from putrefaction just sent me a letter one  day  and  said  call  me  I  want  to put  a   seven  inch  out for you guys. I  called we  recorded.  What  a label  that  turned  out  to  be. I  want  to  re-press that Bounds of  Reality seven  inch.  It  is  in  CD  format on  the  Madness  Begins.  As  far  as  Old  World same  way.  Tomas  flew  over hung  out for  a few days.  Went  to  watch  us  play  with  Macabre.  I  am  so   lucky  to  be  a part of  that.  Any  label  that  wants  to  re-press The  Bounds email  me.

6. I DID say busy in 1990 because I have to mention the 3 way split with Nomicon and Shud on Hard Blast Records. AND the 4 way split with Wartburgs für Walter, Lost and Horse Laugh on Panx Productions. What made you guys decide to work with these labels and bands to get these records out there?

DOUG: I  did  not  even  know  about  a couple of  the releases. We just  liked putting  stuff  out.  The  labels would  ask  for  a  song we  would  say  yes.  This  year  we  want to  do  four  split  sevens with all  new  songs and  covers.

7. Radiation Sickness then seemed to fall off the face of the earth at some point. When did the band break up? And what were you all up to all those years?

DOUG: Man  I  just   walked  away,  walked  away.  It  fell  apart  after I  left.  I  was in  school  got  married  to  a  (C U N  T)  just locked in jail   I  have  very  bad  depression,  I  was  depressed  so  many years I  was  away.  It  was  a  stay in  the  hospital for depression that got me  back in touch  with  the  scene.

8. Fast forward to 2005 and the “Circle of Sickness” discography was put out. Who released this?

DOUG: This  home  made  job  was  released  by  Mike  Rippy  front  man for Indy’s  best  punk  band  ever  The  Dockers and  Byron  Holton.  I  think  Byron’s  kids  did  the  cutting  and  folding  of  the inserts!!!!   This  rules  that  they  did this.

9. Was there a recording done as Radiation Sickness without you at some point around this time?

DOUG: Yes  there  was  a  demo  cut  after  I  left.  I  have  heard  it,  the  music  was  great.  We  used  a lot of  those song’s for Reflections of  a  Psychotic  past.  The  music  was  changed  some and  all new  lyrics  written.  Plus  we  had  Tom  Ball  come  back  with  us  instead of  Ricky on  guitar.  So  his sound is  killer. They  did  not  have  anyone  with the  drive  to  push  it.  We  had  a  nice  deal  when  I  left for  those songs  to  be  put out.

10. Then in 2010, you guys decided to get back together. How did this all come about? Tell the maniacs out there about this time.

DOUG: Depression  brought  RS  back  together.  I  was  out  done with  life  went  to the  hospital  for  depression.  While  this  was  going  on,  I  got  back  in  touch  with  Mike  Rippy  soon  I  was  surrounded by  old  friends.  They  where  talking us  into  doing  a  re-union  show.  We  did  and  here  we  are.  Life  works  in  strange  ways  sometimes.

11. In 2012, the mighty Dan and Abyss Records put out “Reflections of a Psychotic Past”. Talk to me about how this deal came about and how has the response been so far for this killer album?

DOUG: Well  Danny  lives   10  minutes  from  me  I  have  know  him  since  he  was  like  14.  It  was  a  done  deal  before  we  even decided to  record.  The  response  has  been  amazing,  I   am  just  awe struck  over  the  reviews and  show  responses.

12. Tell me about the Radiation Sickness live shows! What bands have you had the chance to play with, both in the past and recent times? You guys were on the first and legendary DAY OF DEATH Fest back in the day AND also played this last year as well right?

DOUG: Yes  we  played  the Day of  Death  III  with  some  amazing  bands Like  Gravehill, Cardiac Arrest and  Prime  Evil.  We  also  played the  first  one way  way  back in  1990.  Bands  well  we  played  a  garage  with  Macabre  once, Repulsion several  times. Deicide, so  many  great  bands I  cant  list  them  all.  Anytime  we  share  the  stage  with  any  band  is  a great  time.

13. There was also a compilation put out last year called “The Madness Begins”. Tell me about this release.

DOUG: Mark  Murray  an  old  pal  we  all  know put The  Madness  begins  out  on  Negative Reaction  records.  It  is  amazing.  It  has  the  Bounds  seven inch  and  the  first  two demo  tapes, re-mastered.  A  live  set  and  DVD  from  Flint  MI,  (wonder  who  we  played  with  in  Flint).  Also  a  file  full  of  old  flyers  and  photos.  To  get  it  go  to :  https://www.facebook.com/negativereactionrecords?fref=ts

14. Going back to your past Doug, how did you first get involved in the extreme music underground?

DOUG: I  hated  everything  that  was mainstream.  I   used  to  hang  at  Karma Records  and  it  all  got  started  there.

15. What are the future plans for Radiation Sickness moving forward?

DOUG: Ok  we  want  to  get  Reflections  out  on  wax and  do  four  split  seven  inches  this   year.   Reflections  is  also  being   put  out  as  a split  on  Patac  records on  cassette.  If  you  own  a   underground  label  and  want  to  do  a  split  seven  for  say  like  RS  and  Gravehill  reach  out  to  Doug  Palmer  at: indycardoug38@yahoo.com

16. I want to thank you Doug for the interview. Now is the time to get the maniacs any links or info on how to get in contact with you guys and get your merch info out there. Any other last words?

DOUG: Thanks  for  the  interview  man,  no last  words  but  get  a  prescription for  what  you do so you  don’t get  busted!!!!   It  was  great  sharing  the  stage  with  Gravehill  last  October.

DISEIM (Latvia) “Holy Wrath” CD review by Rock Music Critic

Posted in Abyss Records Artists Reviews, Reviews with tags , , on March 16, 2013 by Michael McCoy II

DISEIM (Latvia) “Holy Wrath” CD review

by Rock Music Critic

By George Washburn

“Holy Wrath” appears to be the first album from Latvian death metal band Diseim. I make a lot of (often bad) judgments about albums based on the album cover before ever listening to a note, and in this case I was expecting something mediocre and poorly produced. Well, you know with that kind of lead-in that when I gave the album a listen that is not what I heard.

The production on “Holy Wrath” is not really all that spectacular; it definitely sounds like they were on a budget. But they seem to have made the best of what they had available, because the music is fairly stripped down and tight sounding making this a diamond in the rough. The vocals are harsh but are seated above and a bit apart from the music, and while they are harsh, they also have a subdued quality that gels really well with the music. The album falls mostly under death metal, but there is a heavy, ponderous aspect that leaves the door open for appending them with the doom tag.

Chalk this one up as the surprise of the day. I really enjoyed this album.

RADIATION SICKNESS (U.S.) Interview

by Agathokakological Webzine

By agathokakologicalwebzine

1. Hello and who is this from Radiation Sickness?

A. I am co-founder Doug Palmer I started Radiation Sickness with Ryan Rollins (RIP) in 1987. Ryan  killed himself in 1989 and is still missed till this day.

2. The band formed in 1987 could you please give us a BRIEF  history?

A. Four drunks suffering from depression with nothing better to do. Totally into the cross-over movement and the euro crust punk that was going on. Started a band played a lot, drank a lot, split up in 1993. Got back together in 2010. Having the time of our lifes.

3. Tell us about some shows and gigs you guys did, you where around at the start up of Death Metal-Grind core.

A. We of course we played “A Day of Death” the first ever death fest. Used to play with gods of grind Repulsion. Played with Macabre a lot once in a garage show. Impetigo, Vital Remains you name it.

4. So you just started playing again in 2010 what is the story behind that?

A.  Re-connection with old pals. Sick of the life and lies I was living. Trapped in this fake plastic world by a wife that I have divorced. I got back with friends at first did not want to do it, but I said hell yea lets do this. Two years later have played all over, two releases, one new and the other the early demo tapes, live show and a DVD. Plus real cool things in the works.

5. Radiation Sickness’ lyrics man,  graphic and to the point, what is that story.

A. I write lyrics about the most evil thing of all “Life”. A brief moment in time between birth and death filled with suffering and misery. That is it. I suffer from serious clinic depression and have recovered from addiction over and over. I am not proud of it, but life it is. I have see so many friends, family members die to over dosing, killing yourself, murder. It sticks with you. I wish it could be all butterflys and winning lottery tickets but that is not what it is about. Depression and addictions drivers us. Life is an evil thing.

6. Tell us about recording “Reflections of a Psychotic Past”

A. It was a blast, I was a tad nervous at first recording in the computer era. Last time I recorded was in a 24 track studio. After a few hours in we where having a blast. Friends stopping by hanging out.  It is funny most bands get slower with age. We blasted like fuck on this. You can get this CD from US or  Abyss records.

7. You just re-released all the old demo tapes, “The bounds of Reality” ep and a live DVD called “The Madness Begins 87-90” on Negative Reaction Records can we get a briefing on that.

A. Mark Murray old RS fan and friend where chatting one day and said let’s put this stuff  out. Stuff like “We are all the victim” demo was re-mixed and sounds so much better. The video was proffesional done in Flint, MI. It was our first gig with Repulsion.

8. Who is the line up now?

A. Myself Doug Palmer founding member, Byron Holton Bass, Tom Ball guitar, Mike Herald (OG drummer) played on the new CD but due to family issue’s left on good terms. He was replaced by Kevin Gibson who is a major asset to the band. He is younger very fast and way more driven then Mike was to  play live.

9. In your live shows you seem very pissed off on stage why?

A. Well first of all I am a pissed off person. Life leads us down paths some right some left. I have made great choices in my life but always seem ending up getting fucked. I also suffer from Bi-polar disorder and clinical depression, It shows it’s ugly face when on stage. I let all my anger and intrusive thoughts  out when we play.

10. Closing words thoughts, information on contacting the band or getting merchandise.

A. Thanks for the interview. I am home again in the underground, surrounded by the people I need  to be around. Cheers and miss all my friends lost on this fucked up  journey we have all been  through.

ERUPTED (Sweden) “In the Grip of Chaos” CD review by Clandestine Metal Zine

Posted in Abyss Records Artists Reviews, Reviews with tags , on March 8, 2013 by Michael McCoy II

ERUPTED (Sweden) “In the Grip of Chaos” CD review

by Clandestine Metal Zine

By Clandestine Metal Zine

BEYOND HELL was his name at the start for a couple of years ago when they were only a trio. With that name manage to record an EP (3 tracks) titled “Face of Death”, then as a quintet adopted the name of CARNIVORE, finally in the year 201 1 these same mentally ill chose erupted as name will accompany them to the grave (or who knows, maybe it will change tomorrow). The musical style is based erupted atavistic sounds of Old School American (Florida) Death Metal as regards taking more colossal and bands like OBITUARY MASSACRE, but adding touches Modernist his heavy, guttural and phlegmatic DM Besides his lyrical message is far from those used by conspecifics, avocando full attention to write letters a bit more interesting than the typical stories of ghouls and chef anorexic child specialists, but are inclined to the occult, as well as developing and writing about his own philosophy. The album includes 8 songs + 2 bonus tracks, from a previous demo.

This review was originally written in Spanish and has been translated using google translate. The original review appears below.

BEYOND HELL fue su nombre en el inicio hace un par de años atrás, cuando sólo eran un trío. Con ese nombre alcanzan a grabar un EP (3 temas) titulado “Face of death”, luego como quinteto adoptan el nombre de CARNIVORE, para finalmente en el año 201 1 estos mismos enajenados mentales optaron por ERUPTED como nombre que los acompañará hasta la sepultura (O quien sabe, tal vez lo cambien mañana). El estilo musical de ERUPTED está basado en los atávicos sones del Old School American (Florida) Death Metal, teniendo como mayor referente a colosales bandas como MASSACRE y OBITUARY, pero agregando toques modernistas a su pesado, gutural y flemático D.M. Además su mensaje lírico dista mucho de los utilizados por sus congéneres, avocando toda su atención en escribir letras un poco más interesantes que las típicas historias de necrófagos anoréxicos y cheff especialistas en niños, sino que se inclinan por el ocultismo, además de desarrollar y escribir sobre su propia filosofía. El disco incluye 8 temas + 2 bonus tracks, provenientes de un Demo previo.

Review appears in Clandestine Metal Zine Issue #3

RADIATION SICKNESS (U.S.) “Reflections of a Psychotic Past” CD review by www.vs-webzine.com

By Youpimatin

All music columnist, and whatever the kind discussed, passes by one day, he finds himself facing a group whose career is atypical (possibly more). Nowadays, it is for my apple and RADIATION SICKNESS, you can say I’m ready! but rather judge for … This American group was formed in 1987 and release 2 demo, 2 EPs and 2 Split (one with the French of SHUD, it certainly speaks to the oldest of us) between 1988 and 1990. Activity occurs after such separation. ‘s reformation took place in 2010, a concert was given for the first time in 18 years. Here we are in 2012 and all their first album “Reflections of a Psychotic Past” finally emerges: there is 7 titles for 17 minutes which we added their second EP “The Other Me” and remastered version, it lasts 20 minutes. That is definitely unusual and can not say you were not warned. Finally, with all this, what can we expect? Given the discography and the term of the securities, we already know that it will not be the progressive. listening and confirms the thing: we are in the presence of Death / Grind sometimes think that the REPULSION. Anyway, it sounds a bit dated, it smells of dust and it was all the rage in the early 90s. But there is in this sound, a time, just a state of summarized in mind some titles. And better yet, who managed to pass through two decades of experience, legitimacy and motivation oldies who know their decidedly case in point of how to ring two agreements (or slightly more, it depends on the securities ). joint EP The bonus may sound a little more current, probably due to the fact that it has been remastered by bringing power and dynamism welcome, but it still remains simple, classic and effective c ‘is all that we ask. This album, if suddenly you can call it that, will certainly delight the many fans of the underground, the hardliners who swear by Splits vinyl, tape trading and fanzines black and white printed 50 copies. The time machine to go back there, RADIATION SICKNESS proves here to great effect. Approved by Doc and Marty, name of Zeus!

FETUS STENCH (Sweden) “Stillbirth” CD review by www.vs-webzine.com

FETUS STENCH (Sweden) “Stillbirth” CD review

by www.vs-webzine.com

By Olivier ‘Zoltar’ Badin

Life is sometimes as simple as a fetus. Or as an ostentatious name and a resume that says more than words … So now, if you are called a priori zieutant this name oh subtle and discovering in it the presence of the last drummer date BLOOD RED THRONE we did not a group of zouk, you were right. No need to beat around the bush 666 times: with AEON, FETUS STENCH is one of those groups who have Swedish as Scandinavian passport . Except that if the first try – with some talent admittedly – to steal her four-hour DEICIDE Glen Benton soon as his back is turned, its potos of ‘stink fetus’ (ah, that sense of modern poetry!), they prefer to catch the CANNIBAL CORPSE George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher in a dark corner for him poking his mojo. therefore if you are a fan of ‘torture’ and other ‘Kill’ but the last MALEVOLENT CREATION (including in this way if particular speeder typically thrash riffs otherwise) and if you like this style in the tradition of the first half of the 90s has at least the intelligence to drape an execution and a production, they, all that is more current, so there is a good chance that the glances of ‘Stillbirth’ You take effect. still a bad piece slower and unhealthy as “Severe Suffering” is an exception. But “Stillbirth is a product (yes) that does not disappoint. Provided by cons not looking for something complicated – although operating in two guitars, FETUS STENCH has simplified life and rarely bother solos example. Or really deep level concept rather than the words of these nine pieces declining their usual batch of gore shots without even trying to pretend to be original. At the same time, with a name and a pouch like, the opposite would have been surprising … But for a group displaying only eighteen months of existence, this is the kind of album that makes the job as they say sufficiently effective to pro and gently nod the deathster warned that lies within each of us (yes, even you at the back!).
