Burnie, Tasmanian trio INTENSE HAMMER RAGE go all out to shock with their brand of gut churning Grindcore. The band themselves subtly describe their own particular brand of Death Metal as "Putridfoulfesteringdeathgrindcuntcore". INTENSE HAMMER RAGE announced their arrival with a 1995 tape ‘The 24cm Makita Brand Circular Saw’ capitalized on by the following years ‘Massive Sphinkta Release’. Although a quartet at this stage the band would dispense with their vocalist, for reasons as the band put it succinctly of being "lazy, whining, so called vocalist".

there are 5 acts using the name DEAD: #1: DEAD was founded in early May 1990 by Uwe (b/v), Dany (g/v) & Peter (d/v). Main target at that time was playing Gore/Grind/Death in its rawest form ala good old (!) Carcass, Pungent Stench, etc. But lyrically it was totally replaced after the release of the 2nd 7”ep “Slaves to abysmal perversity” by the nowadays well-known dirty humour.. DEAD split up on 22nd May 1998 - on their last gig at the “FTC II” – Festival.
