Malicious Dismemberment / Press

“Words by Outlaw Punk- Now for all you hardcore fans, we’re bringing back to the state wherefore I type this little entry from tonight, California, where punk is still alive and well and bands like “Social Distortion” can sell out the House of Blues for weeks at a time. I don’t know much more than you about Malicious Dismemberment, but you gotta love the sound of the name and if you’re into hardcore punk, the sound of the music. They have about as aggressive a sound as I’ve heard in a while in the normally mellow, melodious West Coast. Give a listen and let me know what you think.”

“Words by AfroPunk-Malicious Dismemberment (is there any other kind of dismemberment?) pack at least 2 sides worth of fury. Though they've only been around since 2011, the trio is tight. Anchored by Kirjah's rampaging drums, their songs are tiny explosions of rage. Mija's vocals kick you square in the teeth while Ralph's minimal riffs saw through bone as bluntly as possible. ”

“Words by Nathan Leigh-Kicking off with the enduring rallying cry of disaffected punks throughout history, “So What!” Malicious Dismemberment's lyrics are nihilistic to the core. Rotting corpses and decay abound. There's barely even room under the floorboards for any more. But there's something perversely hopeful in lyrics like “Grab hold of the idea that time does not exist / Everything I've wished for exists somewhere else” from “Out There.” The band's music is available for free download in the music player above. Hopefully they'll record 7 or 8 more in the near future and put out a 7”.”
