Emetic were an insane group of methgrinders out of Atascadero, CA that used to schraggle their way up to the bay to hang out with the Redwood Dankdaddies and played a few shows with No Le$$, Agents of Satan, and DBE.  They told us that they and another group down there ('B.O.') played huge parties down in Central Cali where they would set up in living rooms and assault the fuck out of the local hippies, hicks, and college students with their unique brand of Malt Liquor Grind.  We were to distracted getting dusted in the woods to ever make it down there but we would have loved to help them 'hug' the Central Cali hippies.  To say their shit is devastating is an understatement.  The vocals are beyond 'balls on fire' psychotic (to this day nobody has ever sounded as loc'd as Ba Bwauk), the riffs are amplified shards of meth genius, and the drums are precision blasts ala Sandoval / World Downfall worship.  What you see above is from the split 7" with Gory Melanoma released by 625 Thrash (#11).  Below you can get those tracks ripped from wax and a rip of the OG warped demo tape that Shanky and the crew circulated amongst the Dankdaddies in 1994.  So what you got here is face ripping grind violence from 20 years ago that current 'grind' or 'power violence' shit can't hold a candle to.  This is 'FUCK YOU! I WILL KILL YOU!' music.  Shanky Tooth went on to join fellow Doomryderz in Bullshit Excuse, Hulk on Meth, and  Riffmerchants.  Anybody reading this with knowledge of 'B.O.' or 'Flight 19' get in touch.

I was the drummer for B.O. and a couple of other bands in the central coast and some of those parties were held at my house! I can definitely attest to their brutality...there used to be some video of a couple of these, featuring, among other gems, someone stage diving from a second story balcony and a sliding glass door coming down, but I think they are lost now. I would love to hear any recordings if they still exist!
