CROPSY MANIAC is a new breed in slasher grind that will restore life to the genre! Featuring ex members of BLOOD FREAK and a pair of axe slashing maniacs from... the backwoods of Kentucky, the band is heavily influenced by pioneers of the genre such as FRIGHTMARE, FONDLECORPSE, LORD GORE, BLOOD FREAK thrown in with a little IMPALED, HAEMORRHAGE and MORTICIAN. The band pays tribute to slasher horror films and most importantly the ultimate film THE BURNING, featuring the one and only CROPSY. The band is working on an EP right now with a full length to follow shortly after. Artwork will be done by the incredible Adam Geyer and mixing/mastering by the brilliant Patrick Bruss and some extra special guest vocals done by Roger Beaujard of MORTICIAN!. You are strongly urged to check this band out now!
"It's great when a new band brings a solid form and style with their music. There are thousands of bands out there that just go through the motions and play what is perceived as death/grind, but very, very few actually really sit apart from the rest. So I tend to really listen to the music, rather then just 'go through the motions' as a listener, but I attempt to feel the passion in the playing. Cropsy Maniac has that passion. This is not a band that just puts a bunch of random parts together to make a song, as I can tell that so many bands do nowadays. With just too much mechanical imitation and not enough emotional orginality - no thought process in what they are creating, but rather just unemotional robotic form and style attempting to emulate what has come before. Cropsy Maniac is NOT that kind of band. Although it's very hard to be original in this genre that is close to being over thirty years old now... it is something to recognize when a band has "passion"... and Cropsy Maniac is that type of band. You can feel the emotional discord in the tracks, you can tell they have a love and admiration for both this style of music they play and for the horror and gore films that influence their lyrical approach, and you can tell these guys are 'true' in their form. Not pretenders - not posers - but the REAL DEAL" ~KAM LEE

A quote from one of the founding fathers of Death Metal himself on the CROPSY MANIAC EP CD (Dead Beat Media 2014):
"Just when I'm at my end with this whole BULLSHIT metal scene, just when I think there are no new bands that can even impres.s me anymore... just when I'm about to just throw my hands up in the air and say "FUCK IT - METAL SUCKS - I'M OUT!"... a god damned NEW band comes out and blows my fucking mind - and somehow restores my faith in real true death metal purity!! And yes... CROPSY MANIAC is one of those bands. This band is the band to watch kids... this band knows DEATH METAL... this band knows HORROR - and this band is going to KILL ALL FUCKING POSERS!!" - Kam Lee
From the dark Canadian woods comes lumbering forth the heaviest Sludge Doom band from Northern Ontario! Dead Beat Media is proud to announce the upcoming debut album from AlgomA, titled "Reclaimed by the Forest". Drenched in despair and depression, AlgomA is a three-piece sludge band in the vein of Eyehategod, Grief and Fistula. This noisy trio also takes influences from Canadian cult bands like Kittens and Shallow North Dakota. AlgomA is ready to crush you in a wall of down-tuned guitar, bass and skull battering drums. Featuring one of the best album covers ever done by the mighty Adam Geyer!! Be prepared for the onslaught, the Sludge Apocalypse is coming soon! Stay tuned for more news and updates about this amazing release!

It's been some time without any updates as I went back to New York for two weeks in December, came back and got sick and am only getting around to the website now. So let me fill you in on all that's been going on!
2013 QUALITY BAIK PUNYA METAL MEETING
The first annual QPB Metal Meeting was a roaring success. All of the bands put on a fantastic show especially PURGE THE ARBITRATOR and NON SERVIAM. The presentations were excellent and Marco Ferrarese managed to entertain us all with his riveting discussion of his best-selling novel, NAZI GORENG. Dato Leon QPB Low was also a very charming and charismatic host to the event.
DEAD BEAT SHOP & ETHIC BUNDLE NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY
Another nice show and a fun time in support of the CRUTCHES (Sweden) and APPARATUS South East Asian tour. This was the next-to-last show of the tour and an enjoyable time was had by all. Marco Ferrarese was the EMCEE for most of the night. Joining the touring bands were South Korea's SCUMRAID, Penang's own WEOT SKAM, and rounding off the awesome line up were KUCHING'S Crust Grinders and D-Beat maniacs, 13 and BAKTERIA! I got sick midway through the show, right after 13's set in fact, and had to go home, and only regained consciousness several days into the new year but I am told the rest of the show was a good time. Our next planning will be another show in support of APPARATUS and RAVAGEFIX.
SAVAGE DEITY 2014 DEFILING MALAYSIA TOUR
We are in process of planning a Malaysian tour for Thailand's mighty blasphemous old school death metal band, SAVAGE DEITY. We are planning for August and looking for dates in Penang, Perak and Kuala Lumpur. Any organizers in Perak or other states interested in adding on dates to the tour, please feel free to contact us! SAVAGE DEITY's full length album "Amulet of Sin" has just been released in Digipack format by USA's Slaughterhouse Records.
DOCTOR DREAD CLOTHING
We're waiting on our official logo from Amir of Bleeding Artwork, but our shirt printing business is well under way. So far we have printed shirts for the likes of the Nazi Goreng Book Release, Liberty Chaos Punks, Dead Beat Shop, gigs and more. If you are looking for good quality silk screen t-shirt printing at affordable prices, do contact us for rates and samples.
