Below is our complete Impetigo news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Hells Headbangers is proud to release the first issue of the Organ fanzine. Available in an 120-page, perfect-bound book, Organ was hand-drawn and written in an old-school cut 'n' paste style by celebrated underground artist Putrid, who's done artwork for Autopsy, Impetigo, Hooded Menace, and Acid Witch among many others. The following press release was issued about the magazine:
"Organ is the physical-waste deposit of two Midwest dipshits who suffer from obsessive visions of horror, visions of endless torrents of blood and gore, visions of cinematic barbarism transfixed within a nauseating vortex of undead soldiers of Satan waging war with guitars and venomous forked tongues, never-fuckin'-ending visions that transform their already unstable reality into an all-out blood orgy of neck-snapping, fist-pumping, homicidal lunacy! That, and super-cool comics and buxom babes smothered in a lot of blood... Organ is cry for help - a plea, if you will, to join their Cult Of Gore. They are possessed by death and obsessed with gore, and they want you to come fuckin' die with 'em.
"This blood tome is saturated in interviews with metal purveyors Impetigo, Asphyx, Undergang, Nocturnal, Grave Upheaval, Cianide, Morbus Chron, and Denial, a chat with Mike Minnet of Bad Taste, and Mike Howlett, the author of The Weird World Of Eerie Publications book: literally, a fuck-ton of horror/exploitation write-ups including a Coffin Joe and Tim Ritter spotlight, metalhead artist profiles, insane horror comics, nerd anecdotes of the lurking past, and then throw in a gaggle of numskulls that love Jap hardcore, Conan The Barbarian rip-offs, and throwin' loads to Amber Lynn for, like, over two decades!! And just when you think the sleaze maelstrom has ceased, you are dead-fuckin'-wrong! There's even more weird diseases to contract that you've never even heard of, WOW!"
Impetigo's "7 Doors of Death" double CD release is coming in 2014 via Razorback Recordings. The label comments:
"This special 2-disc release will feature all of the band's demo and 7" EP material on one CD, and a special never heard before early version of 'Ultimo Mondo Cannibale' on the second disc! It will also feature updated liner notes from Stevo and more.
"We will be working hard to make this the ultimate release for Impetigo maniacs! This special release will coincide with the Lesions of Impetigo comic book/fanzine that is currently in production also from Razorback! More news on this mammoth release soon."

The record includes guest vocals from Killjoy of Necrophagia (on "Defleshed And Skinned"), Stevo do Caixao of Impetigo (on "Feast Of Flesh") and Dopi of Machetazo (on "Hammer To The Skull").
NECROPHAGIA vocalist Killjoy has contributed vocals to the new Bone Gnawer track "Defleshed and Skinned."
Kam Lee comments: "It's a great - great honor to have the legandary Killjoy join in on vocals on this track... and his added vile vocal sickness only ads yet another level of pure sheer terror and horror to an already brutal song!
"It's been a fantastic and great honor to have all of these 'special guest vocalist' join in on us in BONE GNAWER songs - and this is a tradition we wish to continue with on each and every release we do in the future - to have 'special guest musicians' join in with us on the horror and terror that is BONE GNAWER!
"That's right freaks - the fantastic Spanish Master of Murder DOPI - from the killer kick ass old school style grind-core/death band MACHETAZO will be doing a 'special guest vocal appearence' on the BONE GNAWER track 'HAMMER TO THE SKULL' - and there couldn't be a better track for this insane brother of evil to appear on!
"Nothing but pure hellish angry vocals is just what we needed for this track - and DOPI is more then eager to supply a grand dose of pure hostile hatred for it! We look forward to having our brother DOPI on this track with us - and we hope you fans will enjoy this as well. If your still not familiar with the great MACHETAZO - you need to be! Their new album - MUNDO CRIPTA is a masterpiece of pure old school style grind-core/death metal - the way it was meant to be played!
"We wish to thank - Killjoy of NECROPHAGIA, as well as Dopi of MACHETAZO, and Stevo of IMPETIGO for their participation in joining us on the: FEAST OF FLESH!"
