New 80's Death Metal Supergroup, Revolting, Forms

REVOLTING is the name of a new band from Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, RIBSPREADER) which is dedicated to the absolute worship of late '80s death metal (CARNAGE, IMPETIGO) and horror/gore films from the 1980s. "With today's modern horror sucking beyond redemption and death metal being plagued by rap, emo, and fake boring 'brutality,' Rogga felt it was time to do a truly PURE and ugly, rotting, putrid death metal band for the love of it and to get back to the basics of what all of this madness is about anyway!" according to a press release.

Kam Lee (MASSACRE, DENIAL FIEND) is set to share the vocals along with Rogga Johansson (RIBSPREADER, PAGANIZER) for the band REVOLTING. Side by side, juxtapositionally, The Tyrant and the Revolting One shall bring an onslaught of terror and sheer horrid vocal mayhem to the scene with their contrast and different forms of style. They are coming together and blending their unique vocal techniques along with their all-out shared admiration of '80s horror and "true" death metal as the band REVOLTING.

Teaming up with Razorback Records, the label known for its obsession with old-school metal and horror, REVOLTING chose its name "to reflect the gross, nasty, gory, and insane horror films from the '80s such as 'Street Trash', 'The Blob', 'Redneck Zombies', and other mutant gross-out fests that make life worth living," according to a press release.

The spirit of IMPETIGO is alive and well, and REVOLTING is looking to keep the gory tradition going with the release of their debut album, "Dreadful Pleasures", sometime in 2008 on Razorback Records.

Commented Kam Lee: "Plans to do BEWARE are still to unfold, and I'm looking forwards to my involvement with Stevo, Billy Nocera, and the fiends of GRUESOME STUFF RELISH with that band as well. The guys in GRUESOME STUFF RELISH have just released a great 'new' album on Razorback Records called 'Horror Rises From The Tomb' and are gearing up to do some U.S. shows and tours in support of their new release, Stevo is involved with getting his band CONVULSIONS off the ground, and I'm just as actively involved with DENIAL FIEND. However, the offer to be a part of REVOLTING was just too good of an offer to back away from. Rogga is a supererb musician with just the right knowledge and just enough derranged and disturbed conditioning to do this with, and plus the lyrical approuch and horror theme is right up my dark alley! I would have been an idiot to say no to this!"

Take back metal, that was funny! Thank you for the laugh! *applauses* The lack of full words is not good, however compared to most it was readable. To me true Death Metal lies with bands like Obituary and Carcass... Do continue rant please, I believe you were on a roll.
