The Accused AD
With the knife-wielding, toothy-grinned Martha Splatterhead at their side, Seattle’s own THE ACCUSED carved their way into the underground music scene by becoming one of the cornerstones of crossover music that melted faces in the 80s across the globe––A punk/metal fusion that planted its ever-growing seed in modern heavyweights such as MUNICIPAL WASTE, LAMB OF GOD, CANNIBAL CORPSE, the Patton/Lombardo project DEAD CROSS, and many more.
After its demise in the early 2000s, the band was reborn in 2004 as TOE TAG--a grittier, back-to-roots incarnation of the Splatterrock sound comprised of three-fourths THE ACCUSED, featuring Blaine “The Wizard” Cook, Alex “Maggotbrain” Sibbald, and Steve “O’ring Nelson with good friend and musical comrade Steve “The Beast” McVay taking Alex’s 4-string job while the Maggotbrain took over 6-string duties, complete with Wah-Wah shreddage.
Singles were released and compilations were blessed with TOE TAG’s presence, but nothing could wipe clean the splatter that had so stained the early fanbase. So at the behest of the fans, TOE TAG occasionally guised themselves as MARTHA’S REVENGE: The West Coast Premiere ACCUSED Tribute Band, playing a horror-filled mix of TOE TAG originals and resurrecting ACCUSED classics, laying waste to the West Coast and plucking fresh, young fans from their Mama’s arms, introducing them to all that is Splatterrock.
Following in the footsteps of bands like VENOM INC. KNOW, FLAG, and ENTOMBED AD––and after recruitment of POISON IDEA’s drummer, Mickey Widmere––the blender baby known as MARTHA’S REVENGE now proudly sports the moniker THE ACCUSED AD.
The cult of Splatter is alive, and the Kool-Aid is being consumed insatiably so.
They Ain’t Dead yet….
Formed in 1986, Angkor Wat was an integral part of the hardcore punk DIY scene that took root throughout South Texas in the mid to late 80s. During this time period, Angkor Wat played shows with legendary bands such as GBH, Suicidal Tendencies, Devastation, Watchtower, The Accüsed, and Cryptic Slaughter.
In 1988 Angkor Wat recorded their debut album When Obscenity Becomes the Norm… AWAKE! for Metal Blade/Death Records to critical acclaim around the globe.
In 1990 Angkor Wat released their second record entitled Corpus Christi, which blurred the lines between metal and industrial music. Soon after, the band ended its first chapter by disbanding, with its former members pursuing musical expression with many other bands, most notably Nine Inch Nails, Skrew, Ministry, Sabbath Assembly, Pasadena Napalm Division, and many more.
With their 2018 induction into the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, Angkor Wat alumni have reignited to bring their unique style of aggressive music back to the stage.
Back in the day, Angkor Wat was banned from nearly every hall, lodge, ballroom, and warehouse they played due to the chaos that followed them wherever they went. Now they are back — leaner, meaner, and picking up where they left off.
