Learn To Slaughter With Corpse Hoarder

The stench of rotting flesh fills my nostrils as I take a bit of entrails from my blood stained teeth. Ecstasy in itself falls short as a just description for the full and flush electricity running through my skin. From your scalp to your kneecaps, the cornucopia of body parts strewn about the forest floor serves as a reminder of the massacre that had just taken place here. It was a night I shall never forget. The night I first heard Corpse Hoarder. The night I became a homicidal maniac.


While I may not have literally ripped apart a body piece by piece, this Philadelphia based Brutal Death Metal four piece had me feeling as though I had actively and willingly joined them in the slaughter of an innocent. From their sound to their imagery, everything about Corpse Hoarder works in unison to create pure putrid perfection. Classic scooped out guitars maintain a constant toxic viscosity suited wonderfully for the three available tracks, though nothing necessarily fancy shines through. But then again, Jason Voorhees never uttered a single word and massacred the masses for decades.


I never believed vocals to be all that important in BDM honestly. (Almost) Everything I have heard follows a formulaic mediocrity that leads to a, “how low can you go” feel and at the end of the day, you feel lucky to walk away understanding two words on the entire album. Corpse Hoarder vocalist Scruffo, (No really, look it up.), challenges this by going the extra mile and being audible while belting out intense tones. He’s essentially the creepy mortician warning you of the consequences of playing with demons only to put the demon back in it’s cage once it’s done devouring your soul.


What pushes Corpse Hoarder over the top for me is their Bass/Drum combo. Myke (Bass) berates the ever living hell out of your eardrums and it works dangerously well with Armen‘s tactical drum assault on an effort to have you bleeding out of orifices you didn’t even know you had. It’s this final one two punch that really seals everything together and ensures that at least one person in the crowd is going to be soiling themselves from fear.


If you have had a recent urge to pick up that kitchen knife and hockey mask, DO NOT listen to Corpse Hoarder. Frankly, the world has enough evil to deal with already. If you’re a sabre person that looks to constantly push the limits, then listen once. But only one. After that, TMF can’t ensure your safety and your soul may be lost to the depths of hell forever. Good luck!!

“VHS” Scare The Stupid Out Of You

Since the beginning, Metal and Horror/Slasher movies have shared a comradery that even non-fans seem to be able to understand. In more recent years it seems as though the two have become inseparable and they borrow more and more for one another. Musically this can be seen with bands such as Gwar and their insane alien overlord concept. But what would happen if you were to say, strip away the costumes and place the focus of all of your twisted nightmares into the music alone? Well, what you’re going to be left with is an Ontario, Canada based band going by the name, VHS.


The bands debut, “Hi-Fi Horror“, is as dark, vile, and fun as you can find. PERIOD. VHS keep a stripped down quality to their recording sound that terrifies and keeps true to the spirit of the Underground Horror Metal scene. It’s exactly what I would picture hearing in the background somewhere while Leatherface slowly and painfully peels back my cured and prep face to add to his ever growing collection of all to real masks.

Speaking to the music itself, VHS creates a massive sound with slight Thrash influences as evidenced by the constant double bass kick and single snare pops. Though the latter may just be my neck snapping. While the guitars do catch my attention with the dirty grit they bring to the table, it’s the ball busting bite produced from the bass that really grabbed my attention which is an extremely rare thing to find in any type of Metal. Though not as rare, the vocals i found also slapped me in the face in  valiant effort to garner my attention. You know, in that Goblin shrieking his last words before the icy fingers of death slip down around his throat kind of way.


The dark and twisted visuals painted by VHS are Ghost House Pictures quality and the music itself is good enough to make Jason Voorhees take off his mask and offer a rotting grin.
