Dim Mak - Demo



Dim Mak is a death metal band from New Jersey. The band was formed from the ashes of Ripping Corpse, by guitarist Shaune Kelley, vocalist Scott Ruth, and drummer Brandon Thomas. Thomas left the band sometime after the release of Intercepting Fist to later join The Dying Light.

The band's lyrical and thematic inspirations include martial arts, Bruce Lee, human rage and violence, Lovecraft's Cthulu Mythos, battles, etc.

Pretty sure these are different mixes from the Enter The Dragon album. They sound different to me. Not sure of the year but if it's before the Enter The Dragon album has to be around 1992 or 1993.

Also, even though is says No Rope A Dope on the cover only the first 3 songs are present. Sorry....


Dim Mak - Gas Poured On A Flame


Dim Mak - Sorry


Dim Mak - Royal Ass Whipping


Birdfriend - Demo


Heavy intrumental music made by a bunch of stinky acid eating hippies from Toms River / Long Branch NJ in the early 90's. I don't know if they ever made tape covers but i don't have one. They might have just made this to give to Jacko @ The Brighton Bar / Cafe Bar to get some gigs. The tape is also kind of wonky but I'm throwing it out there anyway. Pretty twisted Frank Zappa styled heavy metal, acid rock, surf rock freakout stuff. My memory is foggy but i think Jason Silverio played drums, or maybe Jim Butler? Or was it Matt Gunverdahl??? and Joe Butler bass w/ John Butler on Guitar but i could be wrong. These 2 songs are taped over a "Toast" demo tape that was the Butler brothers other band. If anyone has any more info please drop it...

Chaindrive - 3 songs - 1992 Cameltoe Productions


Funny story about this band and an encounter with the police i had. My old band played with these guys once and i bought a shirt from the band because i liked them. The shirt was a graphic drawing of a 3 way gay orgy and all the dudes were dressed up like cops and underneath it said "PIGS SUCK, FUCK 'EM". I got pulled over by the cops wearing said shirt and it was not a pleasant experience... Ah, to be young again.

No cover or track list for this one. If anyone has any info feel free to drop it.
