Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Mortician.
Inspired by the classic low budget Horror movies of the 80’s, Yonkers New York Death Grind act Mortician have spent the last two decades telling tales of gore that would horrify and disgust the ordinary Joe. A revolving door of musicians they may have had over that time but the writing partnership and axis of evil that is bassist and vocalist Will Rahmer and guitarist Roger J. Beaujard have remained ever present. Back in 1989, alongside Suffocation, Incantation and Immolation they were leaders of the pack of a growing Death Metal scene and while they have remained dormant in more recent years, resurrection from beyond the grave is always possible…
…when it comes to classic cuts, “Zombie Apocalypse” is the one that sticks out like a hammer smashed thumb when it comes to Mortician and for us at least, it’s all about that riff. So to our head to head and in the Red Corner we have returning Northern Thrash Gods Evile who recorded a version of the classic for their major label debut “Hell Unleashed“. In the Blue Corner we have Cerebral Engorgement who are the San Francisco, California based solo project of multi instrumentalist Mike Simon, a seasoned who you may know from such outfits as Engutturalment Cephaloslamectomy and Laceration to name but two. Who wins? You decide!
