Review: “INCIDENT AT APE CANYON” by Various Artists

When you throw eighty-three tracks from nine different bands on a single CD, you immediately have my attention. I am a huge fan of grindcore, as you all should know by now, and my good friend Andy, of Captain Three Leg, has sent me a spectacular nine-band split titled Incident At Ape Canyon and never before have I sat down with something this huge to review. I figured it would take me a while, so I sat down with at my computer with a juice and my electric cigarette, determined to push through this wall of vicious grindcore. I know a few of the bands on this album, but there are a lot that I don’t know. I look forward to getting schooled on this one.      Continue reading

Back From The Dead: Check Out The New THE MIGHTY ACCELERATÖR EP

Do you like rock ‘n roll? You better because if you pass up this new EP by The Mighty Acceleratör you will seriously regret it. Heavy and crushing Motörhead-esque presence. It’s pretty fucking fantastic. The riffing is spectacular, with leads being handled by Andy of Captain Three Leg and Mummifier fame. The vocals are very nicely executed. For some weird reason I get a hint of Sammy Hagar in there somewhere. I might just have “I Can’t Drive 55″ stuck in my head, though.

All around it’s a killer release and the recording quality is perfect. Not too crisp, but not sloppy. Check out a stream of Back From The Dead below and download it.

Long Lost And Re-Recorded: CAPTAIN THREE LEG Releases New Old Material!

Captain Three Leg, the intense grinding monster has unleashed some long lost recordings. According to Andy, these were originally recorded close to ten years ago in Denver. The original recordings were also pretty terrible sounding, the drums being the only thing salvageable. They took those, laid down new guitars and vocals and have now released The Lost Denver Recordings. I just finished listening to these tracks and I love them. Captain Three Leg is fantastic and these just show that old tunes never die. Rest in peace Joshua “Ace” Stough of Dismembered Fetus, who played drums on the original tracks. Check out the tracks streaming below. Check out more Cap’n tunes here and check out Andy’s other project Mummifier.
