Unholy Triple Fuck! Spit in the face of everything that I hate – the new music from Ecferus is sick as FUCK! This human is on a roll, and is fast becoming an important part of the USBM scene. With every record, Ecferus seems to be getting stronger, and he

I’m not surprised that one of America’s most vile and filthy sludge bands has come up with this maggot-infested visual! The new FISTULA video for their song “Morgue Attendant” is way fucking beyond gross and twisted. The disturbing things you are about to see go hand in hand with the
