Macabre blends elements of true crime, math rock, nursery rhymes, punk, thrash, folk melodies, death metal, jazz fusion, black metal and more into an energetic, catchy and unmistakable amalgam, refers to Macabre’s signature style. It’s a genre of one. The all-too-true tales of man’s inhumanity to man are delivered with knife-edge precision, interspersed with Corporate Death’s patented (back when he was a toddler) screech.

Jungle Rot

Jungle Rot Album "Unstoppable"

Jungle Rot unravel unregulated aggression in a purely candid style. As if set to an egg-timer, it never takes more than a heartbeat for this four-piece from Chicago to go straight to the fuckin’ point. Their songs are known for hostility and tightly infectious riffs. They have an impressive ability to deny sounding “reused” or “recycled”. Throaty, but understandable vocals have long been a trademark of Dave Matrise all throughout the nine years JR has been shoveling forth their particular brand of underground demolition. About the best thing going for Jungle Rot is their versatility. Referring mostly to musical style, their capacity to be a welcome addition to any bill is almost without question. Be it Sodom, In Flames, or the Beastie Boys, Jungle Rot is destination unto themselves. (Source)




Brought into existence in 1990, Disinter can be described as old school thrash/speed metal with 90’s death/grind and blackened metal influences. The band released their debut full-length studio album “Desecrated” in 1997. With a few demos preceding, DISINTER has since released 3 more full- length studio albums. With 1 in the grave, unreleased. With lyrical topics such as the occult, zombification, demons wizards and warlocks, religious beliefs, pain and suffering, pent in hell, the maestro’s of misery have truly created sonic soundscapes of torture, death, and terror!


Putrid Pile

putrid PileIn late 1995, Shaun LaCanne joined Numskull and had a 5 year reign of terror with the likes of Tom Bradner (Guitar), Paul Benigno (Vocals), Mike Eisenhauer (Bass), and Scott Creekmore (Drums). We went through a couple of lineup changes introducing Mark Page (Bass), and later Ryan Schaefer (Bass). Due to some circumstances beyond anyone’s control, Numskull split up. Hence the birth of Putrid Pile. Frustrated with Numskull’s breakup, i, (Shaun) had to press on and be a part of the sickness that is the underground! Knowing already what I wanted, I immediately picked up a drum machine and started writing intense, sick and twisted guttural death metal. By the end of 2000, Putrid Pile had enough material for a 5-song demo. Early in 2001,

Putrid Pile went to Mercenary Digital Studios to record the demo and entitled it “Bleed For Me”. The first time it was ever released into public hands was at Milwaukee Metalfest 2001. It received a great response from the people who received a copy. Shortly afterwards Putrid Pile concentrated on live shows and getting as much publicity as possible. Putrid Pile continued to play gigs mercilessly and whore out free “Bleed For Me” demos to anyone who would take one in the US and around the world. The demo received many awesome reviews and continued to get a great response in the underground from bands, zines, webzines, radio stations and fans. The shockwaves of the release of the Bleed For Me demo are still being felt to this day! Eventually, Putrid Pile caught the ear of United Guttural Records and signed a one record deal with them. After the signing, Putrid Pile went into strict writing mode. Writing a total of seven more songs, along with the five songs from the demo, to record the first full length, “Collection Of Butchery” to be released in early 2003. “Collection Of Butchery”, is the sickest material that Putrid Pile has done to date with awesome artwork and excellent /professional production. In 2005 Putrid Pile recorded their sophomore CD entitled “The Pleasure In Suffering” that was released on Gorgiastic Records. This twelve track release received rave reviews in magazines such as Metal Maniacs and the like. Also, many of the tracks have gotten massive airplay and requests on loads of college radio stations across the nation and the world. With some of the classic cuts on the disc being, “Food for the Maggots”, “My Inner Demon” and Rush-Hour Killing Spree to blast your eardrums into oblivion. Who wouldn’t be interested?! In May 2009 Putrid Pile released the Junior CD of the band entitled “House Of Dementia” on Sevared Records and is the bands best material to date! With guitar solos and monster riffing, it crushes the senses and grinds your eardrums to a pulp! This album is sure to be one of the best releases of 2009 and a must have for fans of the extreme metal genre. This release also helped the band to get such great endorsement deals from the best companies in the business such as, Jackson Guitars, Spectraflex Original Braided Cables, and Vader Cabinets. Keep an eye out for this release for it will be sure not to disappoint! In the future, Putrid Pile plans to stay a one-man-band, and continue to progress and keep making quality extreme Death Metal for the masses. Still keeping the original vision in mind, but not turning my back on the idea of change. The new material is a little more technical, then “Collection”, but still has the insane hooks of old and new school Death Metal that fans of the band have come to know and love. There’s no stopping Putrid Pile in 2009 and beyond. Be expecting to see awesome and intense live shows and many more full lengths to come! (Source)

Blood of the Wolf

blood of the wolf

Blood of the Wolf appeases fans of Belphegor, Marduk, God Dethroned and Infernal War. No corpse paint, no costumes, no bullshit. Just barbaric, blasting, blackened death metal. (Source)
