Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome The Accused AD to Blackhouse Records.
With the knife-wielding, toothy-grinned Martha Splatterhead at their side, Seattle’s own THE ACCUSED carved their way into the underground music scene by becoming one of the cornerstones of crossover music that melted faces in the 80s across the globe––A punk/metal fusion that planted its ever-growing seed in modern heavyweights such as MUNICIPAL WASTE, LAMB OF GOD, CANNIBAL CORPSE, the Patton/Lombardo project DEAD CROSS, and many more.
After its demise in the early 2000s, the band was reborn in 2004 as TOE TAG–a grittier, back-to-roots incarnation of the Splatterrock sound comprised of three-fourths THE ACCUSED, featuring Blaine “The Wizard” Cook, Alex “Maggotbrain” Sibbald, and Steve “O’ring Nelson with good friend and musical comrade Steve “The Beast” McVay taking Alex’s 4-string job while the Maggotbrain took over 6-string duties, complete with Wah-Wah shreddage.
Following in the footsteps of bands like VENOM INC. KNOW, FLAG, and ENTOMBED AD––and after recruitment of POISON IDEA’s drummer, Mickey Widmere––the blender baby known as MARTHA’S REVENGE now proudly sports the moniker THE ACCUSED AD.
The cult of Splatter is alive, and the Kool-Aid is being consumed insatiably so, and we here at Blackhouse are honored to have them aboard for their brand new full length album coming this year. Produced and engineered by iconic Seattle producer Jack Endino (Mudhoney, Nirvana, U-Men, Tad, the list goes on…), and mastered by Pig Destroyer’s Scott Hull at Visceral Sound, this album is sure to deliver the Splatterrock without skipping a beat from where they left off.
Tune in pre-order details, show dates and other news coming VERY soon.
