Zombie Death Stench / Press

“Album review 4/5. "Opening with an intense building instrumental prelude it doesn't take long until the dark demon raging beneath becomes relinquished. What starts as being so peculiarly vivid remains so throughout and this album soon ejaculates into what can well be described as "Snuff" Metal. This release is stifling and boisterous and its unique haphazardness aids the fact that this actually sounds like a "Coming Bloodbath." ”

"If there ever was a band that sounds like their name suggests it's Zombie Death Stench. Hailing from the central valley in California these men show that it's not all sunshine in the Golden State but more like blood, brains, guts and whatever else a zombie hoard could possible rip off and consume from human anatomy. Having recently released their third album, the tremendous and antic 'The Coming Bloodbath' these men are sure to be spreading their virus further afield in the near future."

“In March of 2013, California-based Zombie Death Stench brought us their third album, The Coming Bloodbath, which was released by Turkey Vulture Records/Bungalo Records/Universal Group Distribution. This band defines originality. Having no actual genre linked to their name, they could best be described as a mix of death metal, black metal, and trash, along with horror film score elements. Beginning the album, there’s the twenty-five second intro song “Lost Transmission”— a scary synthed-out instrumental consisting of rain, cop sirens, and what sounds like something from the score of The Evil Dead. I have chills listening to this. The album then brings me to the heavier “Demonic Possession” which totally wakes me the fuck up with its blasting snares, insane thrashy guitar riffs, and my fav, the dark vampire-esque synths. The monster-like vocals are notoriously scary, making me picture some demonic creature singing to me before taking my soul.”

“This month I would like to take the time to tell you guys about some good music in our metal scene these days. First CD I reviewed was that of this years 2012 MAMA Award winners Zombie Death Stench. If the Zombie Apocalypse actually happened, this would be the soundtrack! Entitled “The Coming Bloodbath” this CD perfectly fits its title with a thrashy Death Metal sound that will melt your brain. I strongly encourage you to go out and check out this hardworking band and pick up a copy of this CD. You will love it. ZDS is one of the hardest working bands on the scene and they probably shoulda been the band to play the MAMA awards actually being from Modesto and regularly gigging in the city we love so much!”

“For those metal-heads out there who listen to bands like White Zombie, Cradle of Filth, Morbid Angel, Celtic Frost or fiend for Halloween effects, simple riffs, 80s inspired solos and unconventional vocals, you may find that you like the Central Valleys horror metal band Zombie Death Stench. Their latest album “The Coming Bloodbath” is heavier, darker and more violent than the previous two. Fans have described it as “a complete zombie apocalypse on stereo.” Three of the tracks “10,000 Mutants,” ‘‘Taste of Death” and “Darkstar Creation” are popular songs in the internet and local rock station Rock 96.7. It may be worth a music fans while to see Zombie Death Stench live. The band is unique in their stage performance by incorporating a spinal cord on the microphone stand, occult based military uniforms, fog machines, video backdrops and when appropriate they have go-go dancers. ”

"These guys have one of the coolest bands names I've ever heard."

“This is one tasty slab of blackened gore! No two songs sound alike and on your first listen you have no idea what to expect from the next track as they're all so different. Highly recommended to all horror metal fans, trust me, you won't be disappointed”

“Each song literally oozes with enough creepy wonder to make listeners feel they are standing in awed shock when a graveyard rumbles to life with zombies clawing through mucky earth into the horrid full moonlight. 'Here I Die...Zombified' is multidimensional music that transcends the boxy genres of Metal."(Album of the month, April 08)”

“You'd likely hear this stuff out of an early eighties splatter flick or sixties spook fest. If the guys in ZDS act quickly enough, they can get a copyright on the tag "Romero Mod Death Metal. Highly recommended (Album of the month, September 08).”

“Regarding "Here I Die...Zombified" - Zombie Death Stench has a unique sound going for them and besides some minor gripes; I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this album. Any fan of death, doom, and even black metal should hunt this one down. It’s a zombie lover’s wet dream!”

“These guys will definitely find success. No pain, no gain eh?”
