Repulsion

"We went mainly to see Repulsion, a seminal grindcore band from Flint, Michigan, who opened the show. Before setting on their current moniker they called themselves "Ultraviolence" and then "Genocide", which lends some insight into the group's aesthetic. Song titles include "Splattered Cadavers", "Pestilent Decay" and "Maggots in Your Coffin", and lyrics concentrate on fear, outrage and death. The crowd that gathered to see Repulsion at the Temple was 98% male and 90% under the age of 30. More than half boasted shoulder-length hair (or longer); nearly everyone wore a black T-shirt." [More Intelligent Life]

Repulsion, Brutal Truth, and Pig Destroyer added a little filth and decay to an already waterlogged Brooklyn on 7/31 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple. It was Repulsion's first NYC show EVER. The teaming also doubled as a release party for Decibel's Precious Metal book, which showcases Repulsion's Decibel Hall Of Fame comp LP/classic Horrified as its centerpiece.
