This week we mourn and mark a place in metal history for death metal pioneer Frank “Killjoy” Pucci of Necrophagia. Check out Necrophagia tracks spanning from the band’s deathly 1987 debut through the recent White Worm Cathedral; side projects Wurdulak, the Ravenous, and Viking Crown with members of Immortal, Pantera, Nuclear Assault, and Autopsy; and Necrophagia tributes by Sigh and Incantation. Rest in death to master of dramatic horror-inspired intense metal! Know your Roots.

This is great that you’re doing this. I’m hoping Nasty Savage will be on there!!!
Killjoy’s obsession with Nasty Savage is mentioned, he was the one who rurned me onto Abstract Reality
Ian Christe ah, yes…mine went the other way: Nasty Ronnie hooked me up with Killjoy when I was doing my zine.
I wish liquid metal would play more of that style of metal … they always play the same old crap 80% of the time …
Great show this week! Thanks!
I had never really listened to them much before your show, and I thoroughly enjoyed everything! Thanks for always turning me on to new stuff. 🙂
I remember buying Season of the dead when it cane out…My friends thought it was a bunch of noise…I sometimes miss those old friends…NOT!!
