A few years back, I had to interview Demiricous at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival with my buddy The Goat. I used some of what I got from the interview for a piece I wrote for MTV News. Anyways, aside from befriending vagina-pillow-wielding Ray Mazzola on that trip, one of my fondest memories of the trip was talking to Demiricous.
The Indianapolis death metal act’s members have a sense of humor. Along the side, they had two simples words scrawled in white-out that made me laugh and gave me the douche-chills at the same time, not knowing it was Demiricous’ van: “Free Candy.” That’s what child predators say just before they chloroform you.
As for their music, I happen to think Demiricous are the bee’s knees. If you dig thrashy death metal, than you’ll be down with these dudes, who just happen to be releasing a four-song EP on March 10.
These dudes used to be signed to Metal Blade but have been through so many lineup changes, I don’t even know if any of the dudes I met way back when are still in the fold. In a statement, drummer Dustin Boltjes thanked “those who have remained fans throughout the years…The filthy Demiricous is back people. Consider yourselves warned.”
Good…just so happens I’m a big fan — and purveyor — of filth.
