August 6, 1996 - 2021: 25 years of: Purification Through Violence.

Get ready for some massive blunt force trauma !

After the aural massacre of NYDM-gods SUFFOCATION, you gotta head a little more South, to the tiny town of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Following the Tampa tornado and the chainsaws of Stockholm, modern mid-90s street-deathmetal was cornering the scene with NYHC-attitude.

The moshpit is instant as "Blunt Force Trauma" wipes the floor with vile hate in mind. This is new-school DM, call it slam-deathmetal. Sadomasochism stompiness is imminent on the violent "Beaten Into Submission" and the Tyrannosaurus-heavy "Nothing Left To Pray For".

More love-songs are explicitly portrayed on "Raped On The Altar" and the adorable in-out in-out "Skull Fucked". The deadly guitar-tone and hammering death-grindcore drums never leaves room for any second-thoughts.

The duo vocal grunt-assault of Gallagher + Netherton is the new standard in deathmetal sickness. No escape, just pure domination. The reprise of the NAPALM DEATH classick "Scum" is a welcomed bonus.

Classic grindcore influenced collage-artwork ala TERRORIZER and CARCASS, so you know this will be good. Initially issued under tiny label Pulverized Records, the record has since been re-issued numerous times, to please new generations of sick deathmetal aficionados. They stop at nothing and shall destroy the opposition with the deadly will of 1998's Killing On Adrenaline CD.
