SEPTIC DEATH (Boise, Idaho) is a punk band fronted by artist Brian “Pushead” Schroeder. SEPTIC DEATH’s hybrid of primitive thrash instrumentation and blisteringly fast hardcore punk became a major influence on bands like Integrity, Citizens Arrest, Infest and many other bands tied to the hardcore, thrashcore, crustcore, grindcore etc. scene.This their debut mini album and for my personal taste, their best recording. I try to imagine how it sounded in 1984: fast, noisy, extreme... a true energy discharge in just 16 minutes. Is not crust nor grind, but this kind of hardcore seem goes to that musical direction. When I read a little bit the "Pushead" personal biograpy, I realized he was a big artist in tatoos, paintings, comix, poster designs, etc. Brian Schroeder (a.k.a.
