Death Metal Monday, A to Z: ACCIDENTAL SUICIDE

New weekly series to keep the blog juices flowing.  We’ll feature bands of the death metal stripe, some obscure, some not so much, in order to have a little fun and keep new music in your ears; to the best of our ability we’ll keep these brief and let the music do the talking. Helpful suggestions provided for similar bands available at Into the Void Records USA when the originals are not available.  YouTube streaming video links always!

Best friends foreverOur inaugural DMM post features ACCIDENTAL SUICIDE, a Milwaukee death metal band who faded quickly during the waxing days of the genre’s popularity.  Their only album, Deceased, is a long out-of-print gem of visceral death metal horror from 1992.

Where ACCIDENTAL SUICIDE whiffed in clichéd imagery and the occasional generic passage, they stood out with a sense of gloomy riffcraft only ever excelled by the genre’s greatest names.  Tempos often feel like the final pumps of viscous blood though a failing heart, providing a high-tension backdrop for mind-bending and often dissonant melody.

Deceased has yet to be rereleased, but I suspect it is only a matter of time before it is — see the recent Dark Descent reissue of AS’s former labelmates on Grind Core International MORGUE, who were also from the greater Milwaukee-Chicagoland area.  In the meantime, revisit AUTOPSY and explore CIANIDE or MORBUS CHRON for similar flavors of old-school, morbid obscurity.

    I think that I should comment every entry, as I always appreciate any Death Metal coverage. I feel that Death Metal is underrated in favor for Black Metal bands, which frankly makes me unhappy. DM is a genre full of variety and great, life-changing music. Great choice for A, that’s for sure
