CANNABIS CORPSE was founded by Landphil and Hallhammer in the summer of 2006. The band was, and is, a heartfelt tribute to smoking pot and the most brutal band in the universe; CANNIBAL CORPSE! The original demo 'Blunted at Birth' was recorded in the kitchen of a shithole apartment in the ?Oregon Hill? neighborhood in Richmond VA. Landphil and Hallhammer wrote and recorded the songs with no vocalist in mind, but since Andy ?Weedgrinder? Horn lived in the same apartment and was known to do extreme metal vocals from time to time, he was recruited. After 'Blunted at Birth' was completed, it was released as the first release on the fledgling record company Forcefield Records. The album received a great reaction so Nick was recruited to play as a second live guitarist. Many, many shows followed with this line up including two European Tours, and several treks across the U.S. wit the likes of Black Dahlia Murder, Skeletonwitch, Hate Eternal and more. Landphil and Hallhammer continued to write and record albums including 'Tube of the Resinated'
in 2008, 'The Weeding' Ep in 2009, and 'Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise' in 2011, with each getting a bigger and better reception than the last. In 2012 Landphil moved to vocals in addition to bass and the band added guitarist Brent Legion after parted ways with Andy and Nick. Landphil and Hallhammer continued writing and the band kept touring (with Six Feet Under, Decrepit Birth and more) while they spent the better part of the next two years writing. In 2014 the band released 'From Wisdom to Baked', their most epic full-length to date. CANNABIS CORPSE continues forward with no end in sight! Stay tuned for more brutality!

GOD DEMENTIA was formed by Zack Smolenski after his exit from Dead For Days in 2009. What was originally a studio project had by 2014 morphed into a full time band once Zack enlisted former bandmates Rick Hernandez (Withering Soul, Reign Inferno, Dead for Days), Cody Zupan (Ephinepic, Reign Inferno, Dead For Days), and James Genenz (Jungle Rot, Fleshgrind, Reign Inferno, Avernus, Dead For Days).
GOD DEMENTIA's debut album "Consuming The Delusional" was released in July 2015 and was received quite well by press and metal fans worldwide! Six months later the band grows again, recently adding guitarist and old friend Johnny Dove (Everdying, Cardiac Arrest) to the fold, expanding the bands potential and launching GOD DEMENTIA to full speed in 2016!
