Marasmus
Marasmus
Marasmus was born in late 2007 from the lack of real DeathMetal in the Kansas City scene. It grew out of other bands that were friends for years, since then those bands have faded into memory and Marasmus started writing. With new breath and new killer ideas the band came to life in an attempt to bring the genre back to the city without breakdowns and without compromise.Even at the bands inception they had offers to tour with national acts and had already played their first show with Death Metal giants Drawn and Quartered. Little did they know at the time, in the near future they would share the stage with bands like Nile, Origin, Lecherous Nocturne, Hour of Penance, The Black Dahlia Murder, All Shall Perish, Cannabis Corpse, Overkill, Master and many others. Marasmus has no remorse and no quit in their blood. All that matters is the unrelenting guttural mayhem that they have created as artists and as a lifestyle. Not one member is trying to conform to any traditions or any fads, just the uncompromising brutality that is the beast of metal disease known as Marasmus.
Gornography
Gornography
Gornograpy was formed in late 2004 from 3 guys that were disapointed in the Kansas/Missouri local music scene. Gornography has now gained respect for playing the kind of music that is very scarce in the midwest scene. Gornography has played with the following national acts. .. NILE.. VITAL REMAINS.. MONSTROSITY.. DRAWN AND QUARTERED.. UNMERCIFUL.. DISKREET.. and others
Torn The Fuck Apart
Torn The Fuck Apart
Since the formation of Kansas City’s Torn The Fuck Apart in late 2004, the band has been busy ripping people’s faces off with a relentless onslaught of brutality. With the release of their EP, "Skinned Alive” in 2006 and consistently playing shows in and around Kansas City, the band began to build a steady following. In July of 2009 they released their next self recorded album, "Gods of Gore" and embarked on a North American tour with metal veterans Monstrosity in support of it. April 2012 saw the release of "...The Dissection of Christ", their first full length studio effort. The band continued to grow their fan base by playing both locally and regionally in support of their new record. In the course of their campaign to get their brand of death metal to the masses, they have had the honor to share the stage with such acts as: Morbid Angel, Deicide, Six Feet Under, Master, Malevolent Creation, Jungle Rot, Vader, Embalmer, Monstrosity, Broken Hope, Vital Remains, and many more. Currently they are recording their latest album which will be entitled, "Sexually Transmitted Torture", and is set to be released in June of 2014 on Ossuary Industries. Keep checking out Torn The Fuck Apart online for more updates and to see when you can catch them devastate a stage near you!
Koktopus
Koktopus
The story starts about five years before the Koktopus was birthed. At a time when the four of us would get together and, over many drinks, kick around the idea of starting a metal band. We got together a few times over at the Crain Domain and jammed some cover tunes that we all knew but nothing ever came of it due everyones fucked up schedules. Then one night late in 2006, after a night of beer drinking and Jagermeister shots at the Longbranch, Big Dave & Adam resurrected the idea of forming a brutal heavy metal band. The next day Big Dave rolled with the idea and contacted Fletch about the idea of getting together again and playing some metal. Now with Big Dave on guitar, Adam on drums, and Fletch on vocals we began to jam some of our favorite cover tunes again. After a few weeks of getting back in the groove of things we began to write some songs of our own. With some time passing we were all pretty impressed with what we had accomplished and wanted to move on to the next step and find the missing piece of the band. We had brought a few different friends in to jam with us but nothing really seemed to come of it. Then one night on a whim we called Nick and left him a message wondering if he wanted to come over, check out the songs we had, and possibly sit in on bass with us. Within the next few practices Nick had learned all the songs we had and also brought with him the exact presence the band was looking for. With the joining of these four individuals came the the birth of the KOKTOPUS. From that point on we've been dedicated to making Heavy Metal music that not only we love but Metal fans all over the place can bang their fucking heads to.
