Born Danny Chung and raised in Philadelphia, Decipher experienced more ups and downs in his youth than many go through in a life time. To call his family broken would be a huge understatement. Conceived by a woman he would grow up calling “aunt” and a man that may have fathered him but was never a father, his biological mother was left with no choice but to give him up to be raised by her sister. In addition to all the family drama came financial struggles as well.
Malignant Monster is raw, cutting-edge, blood-soaked, blackened thrash metal from Perth, Western Ausralia. Malignant Monster entered the metal world with the release of their, independently distributed, 2003 demo “Welcome to Your Doom”. Despite the fact that they were only a two-piece, used a drum machine, didn’t record bass and had never played live, Malignant Monster began to attract a large underground fanbase and their raw home-demo received an overwhelming response from international metal media.

Monoliyth was formed back in 1998 in Melbourne, Australia, playing under the banner of thrash metal. Within months the new band headed for the studio to record their first demo entitled 'Deep In Your Mind'.
Although the production was rough, the music still maintained its raw energy, and opened doors for the band in terms of leaving the garage for the live scene.
Corpsickle was summoned from the ground by meddling occultists at the turn of the millenium. The unimpressed summoned fiends, the zombie of necrophilia and corpsemaster general immediately slew these panda worshipping occultists and enlisted the services of the master of maggot mayhem and unleashed 2 demos of zombified death metal, Eaters of Pus in 2000 and Violating the Dead in 2001. After the second release the fiends returned to their previous antics, ZON started making sweet love to the dead, CMG slayed poofters and defiled virgins and MOMM returned to his tomb.
