Detroit really likes to change the musical game, doesn’t it? It birthed techno, was huge for R&B, it’s been integral to rock, punk, and metal with bands like MC5, Negative Approach, The White Stripes, and Electric Six, and it changed hip-hop with Eminem, D12, and Insane Clown Posse; all groups that played the game a little different from the rest of the pack. And now Detroit is puking out Child Bite‘s third album upon the world, the third album from a band that might not even be playing the same game at all, let alone by different rules.
I have no idea what this is, except at it’s dirty fucked up core it’s punk. Punk as fuck. I’m hearing a ton of influences being smashed together and filtered through a boozy, smoky, purple haze. There’s pure GWAR worship, some punk/thrash crossover, and even noisy Dillinger Escape Plan type lead guitar. It’s all over the place as far as speed goes. Explosions of sonic hell play a big part of what Child Bite are doing on Negative Noise, and despite being a paranoid, schizophrenic mess, it’s completely cohesive and stands up to multiple listens.
I’m really liking Negative Noise, and if you are a regular visitor to this site, you might like it too.
The hooded henchmen in Ghoul are fleeing their delightful dungeons of Creepsylvania to pillage your village on this year’s Weapons Of Mosh Destruction trek, now in stunning 3-D (glasses not included, swine). The three-dimensional lashings initiated last night, May 15th in Denver, Colorado and will further spread its chaos and disease through nearly three dozen cities with an included infiltration of the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore. Team Ghoul will unite with California grind hooligans, Phobia, and Ohio scumsmiths, Nekrofilth.
Additionally, the masked menaces were recently added to the sixth annual GWAR-B-Q in Richmond, Virginia this August to perform their repugnant requiems and public decapitations. The fetid festivities follow the band’s decimating performance at Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEvil!
Issues Digestor, lead doer of deviousness, “Ghoul is on our way to your wretched country to once again scour the baked on scum from the crock pot of civilization. Sadness? Misery? Brutal totalitarian oppression? You’re soaking in it! Ghoul is also happy to announce that we will be playing the one and only GWAR-B-Q! We look forward to receiving abuse, sexual and otherwise, from our fiendish overlords in Gwar, and sopping up their gore-soaked leavings in our palpitating jaws. Also, we will be playing some songs, time permitting.”

Ghoul unleashed their We Came for the Dead!!! release on vinyl last year. Initially unveiled in 2002, We Came for the Dead!!! was an instant cult classic delivering a slick, punk-infused style of American goregrind from an unidentified tomb in the depths of Creepsylvania, where they’ve since waged war on mortals with full anonymity. The vinyl edition of We Came for the Dead!!! includes a Ghoul-ed out rendering of Megadeth‘s “Skull Beneath The Skin” and is out now on Tankcrimes. And for the CD and digital junkies, the album comes paired up with follow-up slab of sickness, Maniaxe, as a nifty two-for-one album deal available now. Shop with Ghoul and save! Order the CD here (or in stores worldwide) or the digital version here.
