Biography

What kind of introduction could possibly do justice to the most influential grindcore / death metal band of all time? REPULSION is the band that introduced the world to insane blasting drums, bone jarring distorted bass, and the most vile lyrics imaginable.

REPULSION formed in 1985 under the name GENOCIDE in Flint,Michigan. Originally influenced by bands such as DISCHARGE, CELTIC FROST / ... Read more in Amazon's Repulsion Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The true creators and legends of Grind January 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As much as I love Napalm Death and the like, it's really these guys who are the true innovators and kings of grind. They took their love for the best of punk (Discharge, DRI) and the best of extreme metal (Slayer, Celtic Frost, and Slaughter) to create a musical genre that would knock the metal underground on it's f*cking *ss. Afterall it's these guys who were the first to do it and the one's who invented the BLAST BEAT! But what will really catch a metal aficionado's fancy are the f*cking riffs. See folks the problem sometimes in grindcore (like on Scum) is that sometimes the band has the desire to be as extreme as possible that the forget the value of the riff but the boys of Repulsion never ever forgot that and that's what I praise them the most for. They even throw in some solos which were definitely the Slayer-esque bunny-in-a-blender style and it sounds great. What makes the riffs so good are the inherent catchiness of them despite their uncompromising rawness. Some great examples of this would be Radiation Sickness, Maggots In Your Coffin, and Black Breath. I dare you to listen to "Maggots" and not do a frenzied headbang while shouting along with the catchy chorus. What's amazing about Black Breath is that it's one of the slowest grind songs ever but one of the best!

Of course what's a Horrified review without mentioning it's massive influence. This has to be one of the most ripped-off extreme metal albums I've ever heard. I mean even the first time I listened to this I was like "dude there's a Carcass riff! Wait there's ND riff! There's another!" and so on and so on. But one of the biggest culprits are Entombed of all people. It was because of Repulsion they were able to create the almighty Left Hand Path.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Napalm Death? You'll Love Repulsion December 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Forefathers of Grindcore and the blast beat, Repulsion are one of the most important bands that no one's ever heard of. The song structures are short and straight forward. It sounds like utter chaos caught on tape but it all melds together coherently and powerfully. The drumming is simply groundbreaking since blast beats were simply non-existent before Horrified. The vocals are edgy and the lyrics are offensive. The guitar work simply shreds. I always touted Napalm Death for being the originals in the genre of grindcore but after finally getting my hands on Horrified it is clear that even ND were greatly inspired by this underground masterpiece. Even down to the way Repulsion scrawled their logo, ND imitated! So anyway, this is an absolute must-own for any metal historian or grindcore afficiando, especially remastered and with the additional disc with rarities and demos all at a great price. Best songs: The Stench of Burning Death, Black Breath, Acid Bath and Maggots in your Coffin. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Corpse is unleashed from it's grave! September 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Here it is my fellow headbangers, a part of Grindcore and death metal's beginnings. Little did I know it started in my home state of Michigan and in the same town I work in, Flint! Repulsion started in the early 80s around 84 to be precise. They were under the name Genocide at that time and gave birth to the new extreme of heavy metal. Most people including myself believe Napalm Death are the true fathers of Grindcore, well they did help perfect it I'll give them that but Repulsion beat them by a year or two. I'm not taking anything away from Napalm I'm a huge fan, their influence in the extreme metal scene cannot be denied, but the tracks on "Horrified" were originally recorded in 86 and the demo versions under the old band name Genocide were recorded in 85. Napalm Death's "Scum" was released in 87.

What kept Repulsion from getting the recognition they deserved was being a band way ahead of its time. In the early to mid 80s record labels did not easily accept ultra fast and bludgeoning metal with guttural vocals and graphic gore lyrics. In fact Scott Carlson, Repulsion's vocalist was a friend of Chuck Schuldiner of the band Death and in 1985 Scott teamed up with Chuck and went down to Tampa Florida to merge Genocide and Death together make one band under the Death moniker. This did not work out and Scott moved back to Flint to reform Genocide and Chuck reformed Death with new members. In 86 under the new name of Repulsion the band recorded "Slaughter of the Innocent" with the financial help of Doug Earp the original owner of Wyatt Earp records, which I still shop at regularly to this day. Later after the lack of label interest Repulsion broke up and not until the late 80s early 90s when Death metal gained major ground did Repulsion get a second look.

Format:Audio CD
I bought this album purely because of its reputation and place in metal history (it was a mere £3 in a vinyl shop in Reading), but it very quickly turned into not only one of my favourite grind albums, but one of the best 80s metal records I own. Its production is rough, but not murky or ill-balanced in the slightest. The riffs are easily made out, which is great because most of them are awesome, and Dave Grave's drumming is hard-hitting, simple and tight as hell. The songs fly by as whirlwinds of intense thrash-grind with noisy Kerry King-esque guitar solos, and the vocals are just pefect for it.

The lyrics are graphic, the cover art is graphic, the approach is completely unsubtle and the album as a whole is a grimy, grinding display of bloody-minded ultra-thrash. It is, then, effectively a perfect early extreme metal record. One to listen to loud, while drinking heavily, thrashing around and talking about zombies. This is the kind of metal that's meant to be spelled out in capitals with five As and exclamation marks. 20 years have not dented its aggression, they've only driven its influence deeper into the world of heavy metal.
