BAND OF THE DAY: DISMEMBERMENT
There must something about small midwest towns that breed contempt for mainstream normalcy in some kids. That's certainly true with a very promising young band from Circleville, Ohio known as Dismemberment. With fast, heavy, and talented songwriting skills, and influenced by such classics as Death, Deicide, Athiest, Pestilence and Obituary, they definitely know how to grab the attention of any old-school thrasher.
Combining pummeling drums, brutal vocals, and shredding guitars from the band's brother guitarists Luke and Jacob Shively, their debut ep "The Condemned" (recorded 2010 at Paper Tiger studios in Columbus, OH) is fucking heavy. Already this band has had the opportunity to share the stage with national acts such as Mayhem, Immolation, Decapitated, Death Angel, Jungle Rot, Decrepit Birth, Hate, Acheron, and Abigail Williams. They are in the process of finishing their second ep which is due to be released sometime in March.
They'll be at Kobo in Columbus on Feb. 5th with Abigail Williams and Tryblith. Check them out!
