Active since 2004, the New York-based powerviolence/death metal/grindcore veterans from Buckshot Facelift have always stayed true to their mission of delivering ugly, grinding metal, drawing on a cornucopia of influences and manifesting with a street level, DIY mindset.
Today the band announces upcoming fourth full-length album "Ulcer Island," featuring an eclectic 41-minute run time and due for release through Paragon Records on April 14th.
Vocalist Will (Artifical Brain, Afterbirth) comments: "'Ulcer Island' is a concept album in which the narrative gradually moves from the oblique street level view into a dreamlike introspection, Ulcer Island's blend of grindcore, powerviolence, and death metal is arranged in a way that mirrors this transition as the album progresses."

Sworn to come back harder and more hateful than ever in 2013, Huntington, Long Island grindcore faction Buckshot Facelift delivered latest auditory assault on the scum of the Earth with the self-released "Elder’s Rasp" LP.
Since 2004 these henchmen have infiltrated the underground with an abortive and explosive death/grind//hardcore hybrid, ripping through D.I.Y. venues throughout the Long Island and NYC region. Following a demo in 2005 demo, Buckshot Facelift -- vocalist William Smith (Artificial Brain, ex-Biolich), guitarist Dan Baranello, bassist Tom Anderer (Thirsty) and drummer Sal Gregory (Grey Skies Fallen) -- released debut LP "Universal Goat Tilt" with local label Burn it Down/Rebuild Records. The label subsequently folded, so in 2009 the band went back to D.I.Y. basics and self-released the follow-up LP "Anchors of the Armless Gods" on limited, etched vinyl.
In 2012, Buckshot Facelift hit the studio to create a third album, in the process revamping the longtime lineup and replacing guitarist Dan Baranello with Paulo Paguntalan of NYC death/gore outfit Copremesis. The results of these torturous, booze-soaked sessions would see the band diversifying its range with more discordant metallic hardcore/doom-influenced riffage, culminating with the band's most putrid output yet, as the sixteen-track "Elder's Rasp." Directly after recording, Paulo left to pursue other projects, the band then doubling the axe attack and inducting Rick Habeeb (Grey Skies Fallen) and Terrel Granum. More...
