GROINCHURN (AFRICA)


South Africa's premier Death Metal outfit, Groinchurn initially started of as a grind side project of Mark Chapman (guitar) and sergio christina (drummer) who at the time played in a brutal death metal band called Sepsis , the plan was that they would do the vocals themselves , but they realized that they needed a vocalist on the day of recording their first demo “Human filth”- March 1994. They decided to ask Christo Bester (bass/vox) , who at the time played in another local deathmetal band called Desecrator , to help them out. The first demo was recorded in a days time at a small local 8-track “studio”; and the release showed a lot of influences of other grind bands at that stage like Terrorizer , Napalm death, Brutal truth , etc. Things seemed to work between the members and they decided to play one show - as promo for the demo tape in a local club in the Vaal Triangle. It was clear that they had something special when they played live and they decided to do it again and again and again... Late 1994 the second demo “Every dog has it's decay” was released and the band started to distro it in the underground.” every dog “ continued where the band left off in with human filth , but they started to incorporate some more deathmetal and hardcore influences. In mid 1995 the band received an opportunity to appear on a 4 way split CD & ”four ways to misery “released by MMI in Germany. This was the first material to be available in CD format. Late 1995 saw the band competing in the south african battle of the bands (hard rock/metal category) where they came second last. In 1996 the band continued to promote themselves in the underground , and appeared on various compilations and some split seven inches and in the second half of the year - being suckers for punishment - they entered the battle of the bands again , this time they won , making it possible to afford some decent equipment with the prize money. In December 1997 the band entered Bsharp studios (where the band has always recorded before and after) to record their first (self financed) album called “sixtimesnine”. The first album is characterized by the heaviness and the good production , as well as some guitar melodies , various types of vocals , etc. The band received very good feedback from this release (released in Feb. 1997) and probably on the strength of this morbid records (Germany) asked the band to support Krabathor (czech - the way of true deathmetal) and the goregrind legends Sanitysdawn in September/October 1997.
