Prepare for a world-ripping rhino charge of a metal history lesson as host Ian Christe leaps into the vulgar abyss of brutal slam death metal. Based around gravity-bending “slam” breakdowns, this gruesome and grotesque extreme of death metal is the ultimate in dehumanized end-of-civilization fun. Check out pioneers Devourment and Skinless, plus sickos Disfiguring the Goddess, 7 H. Target, Big End Bolt, Visceral Disgorge, Slamentation, and brand new music by slam idols Dying Fetus. Strap on your biotechnical body armor, and know your Roots!
For a thorough understanding of the birth, rise, and myriad incarnations of death metal, pull off the shelf a copy of Albert Mudrian’s dazzling CHOOSING DEATH: The Improbable History of Death Metal and Grindcore, with a foreword by the late BBC DJ John Peel.
