Legend is, he drowned after he walked into a lake while high on PCP.

Early, with Sicher:


Later, with drum machine:

Never even listened to early Mortician, but that drum tone is sick, same with that echo-y earthy vocal delivery. I'm all about this.

Darkest Days Of Horror is pretty much one of the best worst albums ever. Like, it's so terrible, but so good.

The "Mortal Massacre" EP, their only album with real drums, is easily one of the most brutal albums ever made. I have always wondered what the band would have sounded like had the band used real drums for albums like "Hacked Up for Barbeque", but I've learned that he was already out of the band by the time he killed himself (or died by mistake - I've heard both). I still enjoy some of Mortician's drum machine stuff (specifically the "Hacked Up for Barbeque" & "Zombie Apocalypse" albums), but nothing beats that EP. Haven't heard this in years, going to listen to it right now.

You should try it out.

Anyways, early Mortician is awshum. The drumming is ultra brutal and the vocals sound like a an enraged caveman. I love it.

Fixed it for you!! lol

Word. I was going to post that. Being all fucked up on PCP doesn't sound very metal to me. I'm sure Zodi was kidding about the metal death part anyway...sarcastic really.

Sicher's death was more eugenic than metal. No death will be metal enough ever since that Englishman guillotined himself.

Actually Human Spontaneaous Combustion is still uncertain whether or not this is a myth or that it is indeed possible

Of course it's possible! It's due to the accumulation of farts held in for courtesy reasons, duh.

yeah possibly however if you don't exhaust your gas it will become a non-flammable mixture due to too less air in the mixture. Also there is no spark source to bring up the combustion (otherwise it isn't spontaneous). Someone who is in favor of the theories has written about it here:

Are we just going to forget at least 15 American workers that went nuts and literally died from heavy metal poisoning while making leaded fuel? And those aren't the only examples.

How did they literally go nuts? Did the lead turn them into oak trees or something?

You need some Final Bloodbath Session mate, no intros just pounding metal.

HEEUUUARGGH! :nods:

Matt Sicher had some superhuman drumming skills that's for sure, respect.

Aye. I used audacity to actually cut out all of the intros, and it listens far better for it. Takes about 15 minutes to do it all up, but very worth it.

I actually like the intro's with Mortician. I used to have a news paper round in the mornings when I was 15/16 and then it was like 4 am when I was listening to those intro's in the dark, quite a scene it made for ya.
If you have itunes you can let the songs start later I believe so it can indeed easily be solved if you have that.

Well I appreciate a good intro for a song provided it works, but movie samples, for me at least, tend to be amusing once and then annoying every other time. And when it comes to Mortician, they're the kind of music I listen to when I'm in a silly mood and looking for something insanely simple to have fun with (much like slam death). As such, I don't really take it seriously, so any atmosphere those samples could possibly conjure up is lost anyway.

I don't mind intros but goddamn if you can't keep your intro sample under 30secs (one minute tops) then it's annoying and boring and I fucking hate it. When it's samples that are well past a min it should be a separate track that I can just skip.

It is also fun when you see a movie and than expect the Drum computer to kick in, which of course doesn't happen. (I wander what the murder did with it)

Intros are what makes Mortician... well, Mortician!

Anyways, those who detest the intros might want to check these awesome videos that somebody made, incorporating clips from the actual films. Makes them even better!

Agreed entirely man, literally the only bands that can get away with the long intros are Mortician and Impetigo, and they still irritate me to some extent, only reason I dont mind them with those two bands is because the badass music makes up for it.
