This January, unearthly splatterthrash and weedian death metal will unite in an unholy matrimony of sonic decay as Ghoul and Cannabis Corpse unleash a split 12″ fittingly dubbed Splatterhash.
Featuring four tracks of rabid, brutalic insanity, the Splatterhash split will be unleashed via Tankcrimes January 7, 2014 on 12″, CD and digital download. For their portion of the split, GHOUL returned to Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California where they recorded both Transmission Zero and Splatterthrash. Cannabis Corpse recorded at bassist/vocalist Land Phil‘s own Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, Virginia. The whole rollicking shebang was mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound in Santa Cruz, California and features cover art by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Toxic Holocaust). The release marks the first Cannabis Corpse material to feature Land Phil on vocals and Brent Purgason (Pustulus Maximus of Gwar) on lead guitar.
The masked legion known as Ghoul – Cremator, Fermentor, Digestor, and Dissector – are mutants from Creepsylvania specializing in the execution of bone-snapping splatterthrash, grave robbing, flesh devourment and a variety of gory night time rituals. The band will bring their audio indecency to the stage tonight, Halloween, opening for the mighty Danzig in San Francisco. Additionally, Ghoul will co-headline the first annual Black Sky gala founded by Skinless’ Sherwood Webber. Denver Black Sky will be held on December 14th, 2013 and features a absurdly sick lineup of: Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Speedwolf, Power Trip, Mammoth Grinder, Call Of The Void, Reproacher, Weekend Nachos, Iron Reagan, Axeslasher, Primitive Man, Vimana, Of Feather And Bone, Native Daughters, Black Sleep Of Kali, Dead Temple and Flight Of Sleipnir.
Cannabis Corpse, who recently joined the Season Of Mist roster, is a marijuana-themed death metal assault from Richmond, Virginia. Featuring members of Municipal Waste and Gwar, Cannabis Corpse pride themselves in their exceptional knowledge of good green, face raping riffs and death metal parodies. Future live ceremonials from both bands to be announced in the months to come.
