Morgue Supplier Get Davidian with New Song “Cultic Rape”

The deathgrind phenoms are finally coming out of their long hibernation to bring you new music, and if this first single is any indication, Morgue Supplier is going to be far more twisted than I ever anticipated.

I first encountered Chicago psychos Morgue Supplier five or six years ago while searching for cool Metallica covers (sue me). Their rendition of “Fight Fire with Fire” is delightfully deranged, starting off as an almost exact replica of the Metallica original before devolving into a deliciously sloppy maelstrom of blasts and growls. My favorite part is the solo section that manages to sound both fresh and horrifying while still staying relatively true to Metallica’s apocalyptic vision for the track.

As I would go on to discover, the EP that nestled that monstrous little cover in its bosom is a hellish exercise in labyrinthine, Scott-Hull-esque riffs and unrepentant aggression. Constant Negative was a step up in terms of both creativity and intensity from the band’s debut full-length, Sociopath, though the latter is no slouch. Over the course of their 17-year career, vocalist Paul Gillis, drummer/guitarist Eric Bauer, and bassist Steve Reichelt, with other members drifting in and out, have crafted heavy as all hell grind that manages to remain soulful and genuine. The major difference between Sociopath and Constant Negative is the added dissonance added to the mixture. By dialing in with a meatier production and throwing in more off-kilter rhythms and counterpoint between the guitars and drums, the band managed to synthesize the heaviness of death metal in a truly effective way. Constant Negative is a tour-de-force that remains one of my favorite grind EPs.

It feels like the band has been working on the follow up to Constant Negative (dropped in 2009) for forever, but thankfully the wait is almost over. The band’s self-titled is set for a February 19th release, and as a means of whetting our appetites for the main course, the band have released insidious single “Cultic Rape”, which you can stream below. My initial impression is that the dissonance has been cranked up to 11, with the band injecting even more Mitochondrian-esque chug and Gorguts-ian left turns. I especially love that run of descending chords that makes you feel like you’re being sucked down through the lungs of hell. The band announced on Facebook that the song is attempting to tackle the sexual abuse carried out by cult leaders like Jim Jones, a demonizable issue fit for a grind song if I’ve ever heard one.

Frankly put, this song rips, and I can’t wait to finally hear the full-length on the 19th.

    This is ferocious.

    • more beer

      Yes it is!

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Really a surprisingly good song.

        • more beer

          I am going to have to get this when I have a little more cash.

        • Dubs

          Consider this one of Dubs’ secret cuts.

          • more beer

            This fucking rules.

          • Dubs

            You aren’t wrong.

  • Jason Kolkey

    Thanks for covering this, W. These guys rule, and the bass player just joined my band.

    • Dubs

      Oh hey, that’s awesome! He’s certainly talented.

  • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

    I dig the vocal approach, not a fan of the music. Also, fuck cults.

  • Looks like I’ve got some back cataloging to do. This is killer!

    • Dubs

      Thankfully, there isn’t much else aside from what’s included here. I think they had another demo and an EP and did the theme for some cartoon.

  • Waynecro

    This shit is badass, man! Thanks!

    • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

      Rekt by cheat curls bro

      • Waynecro

        In a good way, I hope. I just starting dabbling with blood-flow-restriction training, and the difference in pump is unmistakable.

        • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

          Link me some stuff

          • Waynecro

            http://www.t-nation.com/training/blood-flow-restriction-training

            I don’t know how much of this is broscience, but I tried it with curls last night, and my biceps blew the fuck up.

          • Dubs
          • Waynecro

            I hate that he said this shit. Now I feel like a pervert whenever I lift. Also, I don’t share his opinion. Maybe I’m lifting wrong.

          • Dubs

            Hahahahahaha

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That ‘pump’ feeling is good, but he’s comparing it to something incomparable.

          • Waynecro

            Plus, I don’t like mixing sex stuff and gym stuff. It’s just too weird. Though it would be pretty funny to walk into a gym, lift a bunch of heavy shit, scream “CAME,” and walk out the door.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Hahahahaha!

          • Dubs

            Nothing sexual

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Hahahahahaha

          • Óðinn

            Hmm. I’m not sure, W. After reading your post, I’m just not convinced it’s non-sexual.

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts
          • My lady watched this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Now she won’t stop saying THA PUMP IS LIKE COMMING

          • Waynecro

            That’s so awesome. My ex was never impressed or amused by postworkout vascularity.

          • just go back to fighting a predator bub.

          • Waynecro

            Predators are so cool.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m laughing like a hyena. This is hysterical.

          • brosciencelife

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I don’t think there really is such thing as ‘broscience’. Everybody’s got their own theories and are sharing it. It’s up to you personally to try them out and see what works best for you.

          • Waynecro

            As long as it doesn’t injure me or cost a fortune, I’m totally down to try seemingly absurd shit if it might bring the gainz.

          • Dubs

            Say “pump” instead of gains. It sounds meatier.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, meatier and pervier, thanks to Arnold. Plus, I want permanent gains, not just a temporary pump.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Permanent pump>>

          • Waynecro

            Indeed. It’s a bummer to deflate a few hours after lifting. If the pump is equivalent to cumming, then losing the pump like getting turned down for sex after you buy your woman a diamond.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Sounds like the people who refrain from ejacs to try and boost their testosterone

          • Waynecro

            You have to build up a lot of rage so you can lift harder, haha.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            GAH

          • pumps and a bump >>>>

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            I could go for a bump

          • Waynecro

            *snorts caffeine powder and jumps screaming out a window*

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            New form of cardio

          • Waynecro

            Trying not to have a caffeine-induced heart attack probably burns a few extra calories.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Ive never been thinner than when i was doing speed

          • Waynecro

            I bet. I knew a gal who must have dropped half her body weight when she started tweaking. Of course, she also lost some teeth and ended up in prison.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Probably 165lbs at the lowest, now ~230lb

          • Waynecro

            I got down to 150 pounds once, but I looked like a cancer patient.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            How tall are you?

          • Waynecro

            About 5’11”.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            A/s/l?

          • Waynecro

            BB, plz!

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts
          • That’s the way I look now. 6″2, 148 pounds.

          • Waynecro

            That’s pretty slender, man.

          • 5’6″, 208, built like a fire hydrant with legs like a football player.

          • I went from 230 to 185 to 215(currently about 208)

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Gj kj, keep it up.

            Its almost impossible to stay below 200 for me now

          • Getting back below 200 is the goal for me, would be nice to get back below 190 as well, maybe by Summer.

          • more beer

            Sounds like everyone I have ever known who started doing meth.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, man. That shit is pure evil.

          • more beer

            Yes it is. Coming from a firm believer in better living thru chemicals. That’s saying something.

          • Waynecro

            Indeed. I’ve known several tweakers, and things ended badly for all of them.

          • more beer

            Well they all do have that in common.

          • Waynecro

            The trajectory is fairly predictable with meth.

          • more beer

            Every time.

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

            Not as bad as krokodil, though!

          • Oh, I’m sure.

          • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

            Yikes!

          • A little sniff would help me get motivated to jump on the stepper, that’s for sure.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Axl Rotten died.

          • Yeah, I just read it.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It’s so sad, especially since Maurice White and Dave Mirra died today as well.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            The only big downside of cheatcurls was the stress on my elbows, not so much my back

          • Waynecro

            I’m glad it didn’t fuck up your back. Sucks when your elbows take a beating, though.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            I was only trying ~150. I definitely see both sides now.

            #neverafraid

          • Waynecro

            Nice, man. I may give it a try one of these days.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Ill try it out next week

          • Waynecro

            It feels really odd after two sets or so. I wouldn’t call it pain, but it’s not pleasant.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Kinda like cumming?

          • Waynecro

            More like someone sticking a pencil directly into your muscle and pressing down whenever you try to lift the bar.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Sounds like fun

          • Óðinn
  • That “Fight Fire With Fire” rendition is great. Love the way they tack on the blast beat in the chorus.

    • Dubs

      Easily one of the best Metallica covers around.

  • Toasters Ate My Ghost Farts

    My best friend’s band, Solecism, did a gig with them at the Metal Shaker (Chicago) back in the day (2008).

      Goddamnit! I love Earth, Wind And Fire. And Axl Rotten was one of the old school legends of hardcore. Sadly, wrestlers tend to die pretty young for a variety of reasons.

      2016, stop being a dick and be a dude! -Sincerely, KJU

      • Especially ones like Axl Rotten who live the hard party life.

        • Detective Fish

          At least Sabu’s still around, and partied harder than 90% of all wrestlers.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        It’s very sad.

  • It’s pretty good yea. Why am I still awake?
