Morbid Taxidermy

The latest in my posts of brain pummeling grind, this time spread out across the the entire US. Sunnyvale, California's Godstomper are a bass/drum duo that are one of the few truly great bands that will upset your friends within 10 seconds of dropping the needle, but their side of this isn't why I'm posting it. I'm a fan, but in the next few days I'll post another record that will really explain why. I am posting this because of the Green Beret side. One of the most under-rated and creative bands from the late 90s grind/powerviolence scene, this Tuscaloosa, Alabama outfit were always going at 110% regardless of what speed they were playing. A collection of their singles was released in Europe of a couple of years ago, and there's also a full length CD floating around somewhere. Get on it, it will make your head hurt.

The culture we rejected...

I haven't updated in some time due to a lot of person stuff going on. I have some records to rip that I'll be posting soon.



In Korova news, we are currently writing songs for a new demo that will be released in June. It will a limited edition of 50 copies (we're broke and nobody's going to buy this thing, anyway) that will consist of all new material save for a couple of re-recordings of songs that have changed with the new line-up. I will update this blog, as well as our MySpace page with more information as it becomes available. I will also be sending out e-mail updates since they're the big thing to do now. Please e-mail i_hate_you_too[at]hotmail[dot]com to be added to "the list", so to speak.

Our previous efforts, including a 7" released in 2007, is almost gone from everywhere. Relapse still have a couple of copies, as well as Interpunk. I thought we ran out a long time ago, but I found two boxes that were lost in a move and we now have 50 copies available without covers or liner-notes. I've screen printed covers for them and they're being sold at shows. I think there are like three of the Siege rip-off shirts left. Our 13 song CD, Another Happy Customer is available from Robotic Empire, Interpunk, and Relapse Records, but is almost gone. If you buy it from those distros (which I encourage), you aren't really helping us out much, but you are helping places that help and cater to DIY punk and hardcore. You can also download it for free from the following places:

To Live a Lie Records's Netlabel
Fugitive Equilibrium
Toxicbreed's Funhouse
New Fits
Am I Mean?
