Cannibal Corpse totally blew my eardrums out last night. Can't believe these guys have been plying their trade for over 20 years. There was a drunken debate as to the proliferation of the Floridian Death Metal scene during the late 80s/early 90s. Think of Florida and images of sun drenched beaches, hot chicks on roller skates and Mickey Mouse come to mind. Not exactly the environment one would think could spawn the likes of Obituary, Morbid Angel, Death & the aforementioned Cannibal Corpse.
You could kinda understand where bands like Emperor, Mayhem et al are coming from. Guess the sun hardly shines in Norway and church burning is the weekend past time. Also dudes like Godflesh & Carcass, where the industrial wasteland of Birmingham gave these guys reason to crank it up. Anyways, by the time George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher belted out 'Meat Hook Sodomy', all was forgotten.
Not so hardcore but equally mesmerising is Institubes mainstay & all round Parisian hipster, Das Glow, with his fuzzy, retro electro tinged pop. His previous single, 'Sunburnt', was a spaced out 8 bit wonder and got picked up by Alex Boyz Noise, Simian Mobile Disco & Miss Kitten. The 'Lite Brite' remix package is the man's latest offering. Maybe ol Corpsegrinder might like this as well.
