Repulsion.


I can't even believe that this is happening, and that I'm going to be there. Seriously.

It would be enough if Pig Destroyer was playing. It would be enough if one of my first Grindcore loves, Brutal Truth, was playing. But no, it's so much more than that. Way, way more. And it's because of the fact that Repulsion will be playing their seminal (and only) album, Horrified in its entirety. Horrified was one of those perfect records that showed up at just the right time and place, building a wicked bridge between Thrash, Death Metal, and Grindcore. Horrified is arguably one of the top 5 most important Metal records ever released. To see it played live in all its raw and rancorous glory is gonna be huge and ugly. Yum. Please pass the maggots. You know. The ones in your coffin.

In honor of this event (And it IS an event.) I've changed the Unbreak My Heart sidebar to Unbreak My Repulsion, and linked to 5 YouTube videos of the band at work.

I don't get it, my friend, and you know that. But I get a big kick out of seeing you in all your death-metal authority!

LOL. Glad to oblige.

You'll need an exorcism after this weekend my son.

HaHa. This IS the exorcism.
