DANK SLAMS: Droppin Earthquakes From Pennsylvania To Scandinavia!
Slamutations from the deepest, darkest bowels of your grandmother's fetid, rotting septic tank. We at Metal-Injection are chuffed – and slightly repulsed – to bring you another installment of our weekly, targeted exclusives, this one entitled Dank Slams. Every week we will take a grisly gander at the unfathomable, cliche-ridden horrors floating around your beloved granny's pit of putrescence. This will include the newest, hottest bands bringing you the dankest of slams, as well as a retrospective look at some of the goriest platters to come out of gramma's kitchen. If you can stomach it, we will serve it! For our first installment, we pack our body bags and head to the backwoods of Pennsylvania, then it's off on a blood-soaked trek through Scandinavia and the Czech Republic… investigating all suspicious hostels as we go.
Diphenylchloroarsine – The 6 Level Purge
Any slam worth its crushing, cranium-pulverizing weight in riff-age should, while listening, immediately induce fits of sneezing, coughing, headache, salivation, and vomiting. Sharing their name with an organoarsenic chemical weapon that causes the above-mentioned symptoms, the Norwegian/Czech three-slam known as Diphenychlorosarine allows you to relive the grisly details of this brutal and inhumane form of warfare through their music, safely and comfortably from the confines of your parent's basement. Self-identifying as 'Biochem Sludge Slam' these guys infected ears with some of the meatiest, heaviest earthquake drops I have ever heard on their debut EP, The 6 Level Purge, from several months back. This shit is beyond sickening. Oh, bonus points for including audio samples from Fallout 4… I suddenly have the urge to hunt me some super mutants! Their sophomore effort, dropping sometime this year, promises to be filled to the brim with intoxicating slam-age. Head over to their Facebook page and get rekt.
Corpse Stove – Decortication Of Cadaveric Delicacies
You'd be for forgiven for reading that first word in the album title as 'Decoration'. It is, in fact, 'Decortication', which refers to a medical procedure involving the surgical removal of the surface layer, membrane, or fibrous cover of an organ. For the culinary-minded of you out there, this is a similar procedure practiced in the kitchen for removing silver-skin from a prime cut of meat. You can bet your ass Pennsylvania's appropriately named Corpse Stove aren't hitting the corner butcher for their choice cuts. If this first, exclusive track is any indication, these guys prefer to dig into the cannibalistic cookbooks of serial killing monsters like Albert Fish. In fact, the vocal intro of this first song is a direct quote from Fish. It's terrifying, horrific, and reprehensible… just as any good slam should be! The band's Decortication Of Cadaveric Delicacies EP should be droppin anytime now. Hit their Facebook page for more slamming goregrind!
