Your Death Metal Kickstarter Campaign is 0% Funded
Veteran death metal band Prolapsing the Crepitation needs your help. But they’re too fucking br00tal to ask nicely.
Kickstarter is a great tool for musicians of any genre who possess no initiative or networking skills or work ethic of any kind. But it’s also a great tool for hard-working, no-nonsense victims of the decomposing record industry and wintry global economy like the chaps in Prolapsing the Crepitation. They’ve started a campaign to fund the recording of a new full-length album entitled Necropurulent Copulation. The good news is that all they need is $70 USD. The bad news is that with only 13 days left the campaign has a grand total of $0 pledged.
Wtf, right? Prolapsing the Crepitation are stalwarts of the Hawaiian underground death metal scene, sharing members with slam weirdos Effluviating the Nucleus and scene pioneers Inculcating the Necrovore. Their roots can be traced all the way back to ’93, with the release of their first rehearsal cassette, Rotting Dumpster Miscarriage (at which point the band was still calling themselves Crepitating the Prolapse). After several name- and lineup-changes, not to mention a half-dozen more rehearsal tapes and official demos, Prolapsing the Crepitation took the underground by storm in 2009 with their debut full length album, Full Body Amputation. Eight years, ten albums and fourteen lineup changes later, they remain steadfast in their staunch refusal to compromise or “sell out”. Prolapsing the Crepitation always has and always will fund their existence the only way they know how: asking other people for money. And today they are asking YOU to help raise a measly $70 to record the follow up to January’s critically shunned ripper of an EP, Unsanctimonious Subdural Ejaculation.
“We need like 70 fuckin dollars to record this fuckin album or whatever so if you like brutal fuckin death metal then give us some fuckin money you fuckin scrubs,” states the band on their Kickstarter page. You can tell they are dead serious about this goal because, in their own words, they’ve been “gut-fucking the posers since ’93”. And you can tell their latest “pulsating slab of blood-saturated audio carnage” will be worth your money because the revered tastemakers at Death Metal Underground gave Unsanctimonious Subdural Ejaculation what passes for glowing praise, I guess, stating that “The EP wouldn’t be half bad if it was still 1994 and this band didn’t chose [sic] to be from dumbass Hawaii which as everyone knows is the most un fucking death metal state in the Union full of sun loving scene tourists and SJWs in sheeps [sic] clothing refusing to move to the mainland and quit releasing everything on fucking hipster ass cassette. It’s okay. It could be worse. There could be time signatures other than 4/4.”
Crepitating the Prolapse Prolapsing the Crepitation’s campaign is fully funded, 92% of the pledged money will go toward the recording itself, with the remaining 8% (that’s $5.60 USD) reserved for the purchase of new metal trashcans; drummer Al “Bitch Cleaver” Jenkins’s old ones are too banged-up from over two decades of percussive br00talization. (Bassist Frank “Throat Plunger” Murphy could probably use some new strings too; he’s been playing with only three since ’98.)
The reward tier breakdown is as follows:
- Pledge $1 and the band will send you a crumpled up napkin with some personalized variation of “Go fuck yourself” written on it.
- Pledge $5 and the band will send you a piece of roadkill.
- Pledge $20 and guitarist/vocalist Paul “Nunthumper” Evans will treat you to an intimate a-cappella performance of Necropurulent Copulation via skype.
- Pledge $40 and “Bitch Cleaver” will come to your child’s school and hang around on the playground looking seedy.
- Pledge the full $70 and you can join the band, replacing Ernesto “Kidsmasher” Rangi on rhythm guitar. (He’s going to prison. Guess what for.)
All of those are pretty much the awesomest things in the history of ever, so what are you waiting for? And hey, if the band name and logo and album title and promised rewards aren’t enough to entice you into donating a bit of your cash to this thoroughly filthy project, then here are some song-titles:
“Raped by Maggots”
“Necrotic Vaginal Distention”
“Enjoy Your Hemicorporectomy, Susan”
“Masticated Fetal Abrasion”
Need more enticement? Just look at these dudes.
