"Maruta resides somewhere in the musty chasm between grind and death metal. This band has been kicking around since 2005. They took some time off to reflect and are back to churning at speeds burgeoning on the ludicrous, stomping out quicksand sludge, and ripping violent guitar athletics that would make any shred-head jealous." -David Von Bader (Miami New Times)
MINDSCAR is the extreme metal band from Orlando, Florida formed by Richie Brown(vocals/guitar) and Mike Radford(drums) in 1998. By 2001, MINDSCAR made a powerful impact performing hundreds of successful gigs, performing on television, and receiving international airplay and publicity. Coined by metal press as 'Matt Heafy's old black metal band', MINDSCAR featured Matt Heafy of Trivium on guitar and backup vocals in 2002. After getting held back from the first major tour in 2002 due to parental guardian issues and the band being legally under age, everything fell to pieces for an entire decade.
In 2012, Richie Brown and Mike Radford reunited in the studio to record 'Thornz Ov Ill Lechery' and 'Blind Masses'. Soon after, the core of the band made a pact to completely resurrect MINDSCAR. March 2013 marks the live debut of the new line-up, which features Jacob Belkerdid(bass/vocals) and Erich Geuter(guitar), alongside Massacre in Tampa, Florida. With potent new material and the most powerful line-up to date, MINDSCAR intend on releasing the first official full-length album and performing internationally.
After rising to fame with the hit "Throbbing Rod", Dissident Aggressor got caught up on the roller coaster of fame. After John Farran was convicted of manslaughter for exploding a man's head with a 20 foot speaker and sentenced to 12 years in prison 2005, the band seemed to be over. But Satan would not allow it. He chose now to be the time for the antichrist to rise and save Dissident Aggressor. ...A charismatic politician was the perfect cover, and Satan's son easily won the presidency. Barack Obama's first official act as president was to pardon John, and with many years in prison as inspiration, John had a plethora of explosively brutal songs. With Taylor Leamy's depressingly pathetic life to draw from, he too was easily able to write lyrics for songs. But Jake Ettison's old life as a pirate was still haunting him, and he sank deeper into the lifestyle of flying blimps and hanging out with Charlie Sheen. It was a very dark time for the drummer of Dissident Aggressor. But from the ashes, rose a phoenix. While on one of his week long coke binge/blimp flights (Jake was known to stay in the air for up to a week at a time with nothing but cocaine and drums wearing only a loincloth), he began writing drum tracks to the songs that were written. The completed songs sounded so good that Jake was cured of his cocaine addiction. After being put on the cover of Time magazine for finding a cure for drug addiction, Dissident Aggressor released their album Agonizing Demise on their own, simply burning copies of it on blank cd r's. Rolling Stone calls it 'so innovative' and 'the most creative thing since putting parental advisory labels as the cover of your album to look explicit'. They were 'tired of dealing with the record companies and everyone loving you and having such big dicks.' So today Dissident Aggressor is getting back to it's roots, only choosing to play in smaller venues instead of the stadiums they could still easily fill. "Who knows what's in store for Dissident Aggressor next?", John said in an interview recently. "I just know that after we recieved the award for being the best band ever, I realized that kicking ass all of the time isn't everything.. You have to fuck bitches sometimes too, ya know?"
