First off, I wouldn't really call us a "live" band, as we are all cannibal mutant ghosts. But yes, to answer your question, we enjoy the experience of being a reanimated
necroplasmic manifestation-band — very much so, as a matter of fact. There's usually free beer when we play shows; occasionally there's free food, too, if a member of the audience appears to be sick or wounded. We're venturing down to Portland in November with Carnotaurus, and hopefully we'll make it down to California at some point this winter.
Our ultimate goal to tour the United States on foot, like Forrest Gump. I refuse to watch the movie Ghostbusters because that movie gives us ghosts a bad name. I think that we need Ghostblood’s celebrity status to do a public campaign in defense of ghosts. Have you been contacted by ghosts recently asking you to stand up for us (I am a ghost, too)? Are you going to help us out or not? We believe in leading by example. It's really easy to espouse a ghost-positive ideology, but you have to be committed to really live it. So, to answer your question, we already are helping out. Every highly visible act of cannibalism or public decapitation we perform speaks louder than any words.
What is the best Ghostblood song that I should play at my upcoming wedding and why?
I am having problems deciding between songs about gratuitous violence and songs about the grave. Both have many positive sides. We typically recommend songs about opening graves and eating the dead for the reception, whereas songs about gratuitous violence are more appropriate for the actual ceremony.
Incidentally, at least one of us is an ordained minister. We would love to preside over the nuptials; all we would ask in terms of payment would be first crack at eating any wedding crashers.
What is the best Ghostblood song that I should play at my second wedding and why? (I like to look ahead and make plans for my future. My teachers always told me to plan ahead, so I do.) Don’t you have songs about broken hearts and evisceration, too?
We definitely have songs about evisceration! We haven't written any songs about broken hearts just yet, but we HAVE recently perfected our technique for breaking them.
1.Open chest cavity to access heart
2.Freeze heart with liquid nitrogen
3.Once heart is frozen solid, strike with hammer/rock/rifle butt/human femur. (Fun fact: Like you, we were taught to plan ahead, but in decapitation school).
Ghostblood has not written any songs about Casper The Friendly Ghost so far. How can this be? Casper has made entire towns fear his name and many children and adults have needed a diaper change upon seeing Casper. What else do you need to write a song?
There you have fear, confusion, and terror. The songs practically write themselves! According to a cease-and-desist letter we received in the mail, we shall not publish any material featuring or referencing the trademarked intellectual property "Casper the Friendly Ghost," under penalty of civil and criminal prosecution as outlined in U.S. Code: Title 17.
Stay tuned for our new jam about Jasper the Amiable Spirit, though!
I have been trying to learn to play Ghostblood songs. In order to do that I have been eating a lot, sleeping and taking naps whenever I can, and I have been climbing the trees in my neighborhood and howling like a wolf. Somehow, these activities are not helping me to become a better musician. What do you think I am doing wrong?
Hmm...honestly, we couldn't tell you; it sounds like you're doing everything right. Here's a list of our best guesses, though:
1.You mentioned you were eating a lot. Are you drinking enough beer to soak up the food? Also, are you absolutely sure your diet contains enough human remains? The only reason we ask is that many people think they're consuming enough, but in reality there's a huge deficit in their diet.
2. Try punching your instrument harder.
3. Play louder?
4. Sacrifice a chicken in a graveyard under a full moon. Eat the chicken. Enjoy it so much that you abandon music to pursue a career in culinary arts.
5. Get drunk.
I have other questions for you, but I have to go and play with my snakes now. I have a snake farm and they need attention. One last question: what is the best way to keep up with the news of Ghostblood? Are you on the Myspace? I have read that the Myspace is very popular with the youth of today. Do you use the electronic internets sometimes? Do you have a hotline that humans can call about Ghostblood news?
For sure! You're not much of a snake farmer if you neglect your scale-babies — they need love just like kittens or baby rabbits or pet bears or domesticated mummies. Anyway, we've never heard of MySpace, but then, we've never been huge into astronomy (MySpace is like a NASA dating site, isn't it?).
The best ways to contact us are: 1.On the Facebook, www.facebook.com/ghostbloodmeta 2.Over our electric mail, email@example.com 3.On our Bandcamp page, www.ghostbloodmetal.bandcamp.com Anyway, we have to go — it's been a long week, and those brains aren't going to smoke themselves! Thanks for asking us questions! THE END
Ghostblood (Seattle) Eviscerama
Oh, no, thrashers Ghostblood have new single! run away, fool, run away!
"Ghostblood went to a party last Saturday night, they didn't get laid, they got in a fight, uh, huh, it ain't no big thing.
Late for their gig and the traffic was bad, got ride from the only friend they ever had, so Lita drove them to the show in a Ford pickup, uh,
huh, it ain't no big thing."
The trash-talking, bug-eating kings of comedy gore thrash metal (it's a new Seattle genre thing, you wouldn't understand) have inexplicably recorded a new song and it's called Eviscerama (yes, like Bananarama). These cats dress in white sneakers because they are waiting for the day that they will meet John Petrucci in the worm-infested, slimy, crime-ridden, dumpster-divers-dominated streets of Seattle's Clyde Hill or Medrona Waterfront and they are going to tell him what is what with their sneakers in John's favorite body parts. After they give him a piece of their mind they will make him listen to their new song Eviscerama on repeat for six minutes or maybe even nine minutes and he will know what Ghostblood's "gore-splattered ghostly thrash-blackening death-blood" is all about.
In case you do not know this, when you talk about Ghostblood you are supposed to reveal if you know the band or not. Well, I do not know them and I have never met them or attended one of their many shows in the
Seattle region, but just you wait, one day I will go to one of their shows! Ghostblood, I'm not done with you! In the interest of even fuller disclosure, this zine must reveal that Ghostblood sent in a copy of their new single and I am keeping in a safe vault because one day my grandkids are going to ask, "Grandma, what bands from Seattle do you like?" and I will show them that I have cds from Ghostblood. If I ever catch them listening to pop music I will grab their phones and throw them in the pool (the phones, not the kids, you sicko) and play them Ghostblood music on my boombox because I actually have one (a tiny one from the 1970s or 80s or one of those decades from a long time ago) and they will not dare be sour and they will feel the power and they will clap for the three-time world gore champions Ghostblood and it will be a new day in gore thrash and I will body slam them (the kids, not the phones because the phones will be in the pool, and you can't body slam a phone, anyway, are you keeping up?!) in the huge bouncy house that's in the backyard!
Ghostblood is back! (Well, sort of, they never go away.)
You listen, and you listen good now. You gonna be blind in Texas, blind in London, blind in Snohomish County, WA (yeah, that's real place, a place of high per capita horse ownership, too).

Headed straight to the show after work. 8:55pm and Spellcaster is on stage doing sound check.
Spellcaster hails from Portland, Oregon. We missed Mastema local band formely known as Legion. They had a name change?
Spellcaster is good to go 9:05p Rudyard's is actually keeping their time slots fairly close for a change.
Their sets begins with a prerecorded intro & a blast of smoke rises. They have a smoke machine!? the crowd approves. It's a first for a Rudyards show that we seen there. The smoke alarms go crazy but it doesn't matter, you can't hear them. Spellcaster is on stage and they demand your attention with those soaring vocals, twin shredding guitars and catchy hooks.
Spellcaster songs on this video... I Live Again, Ghost of My Memory, Betrayal 8.2.16 live at Rudyard's. These guys were great!
Tyler Loney (vocals), Cory Boyd (guitars), Bryce R. VanHoosen (guitars), Gabe Franco (bass), and Colin Vranizan (drums),
Exmortus is a band from California. They are next on stage, we missed them earlier this year. Glad we get a second chance to catch 'em live. 'Ride Forth' their latest albums is well reviewed by metal heads and Fuglymaniacs agrees. Get it!
Jadran "Conan" Gonzalez - VOCALS/ GUITAR
David Rivera - GUITAR
Mario Moreno - DRUMS
Michael Cosio - BASS
These guys are definitely a blue collar band. They have to Houston three times this year and singer Jadran "Conan" Gonzalez says they will be back before the year end. Exmortus latest release 'Ride Forth' has cemented their print in the metal scene. Metal Heads will expect great things from them from now on. The bar has been set high and these guys are ready to deliver.....
When asked if they are working on the album he says they have ideas as to what to do next...also asked if they had made it overseas yet? he said some offer have been extended to them but nothing great yet.
Exmortus surprised the crowd when they did a guitar 69 shredding solo one leans over each mid section took over his guitar and continued playing. Their precision is impressive. Last time we witness this kind of shredding, class was in session with Scale The Summit. Holy grail was headlining this show. This band is from California.
Luna has described Holy Grail as "a modern band with a new twist of old-school metal with death metal riffs, modern breakdowns, and power-metal singing". Critics have described the band as playing traditional or retro heavy metal with thrash influences.
lucky for you we have love footage and you can see for yourself. All we know is that these guys rock!!
2016 has been a challenging year around here. Everytime we make it to a show like this it makes it all worthwhile. This show was perfect for us.
1.) Rudyard's cover was $11
2.) Show started at 8:30 pm even thought we missed the local band Mastema hey, it's Tuesday and we have lives too imagine that.
3.) They were all done a little past midnight...
Bands like these keep heavy metal alive and well. Road warriors earning it the hard way. We bought some merch, just trying to help out with their gas for the next show. Keep it up guys. Had a great time!!
Fuglyspin by MMB reports:Iron Maiden holds press conference and issues apology for guitarist Dave Murray’s blatant un-British behavior onstage
Understandably, the Iron Maiden audience, not used to such shameful acts from Dave, was so shocked and literally tens of thousands of outraged British people did a very loud, “Oh!” and gasped in such a shocking, and visible way that it caught the rest of the band by surprise and the band stopped in the middle of the song.
“Do Brits Have to Stand for Such Unethical Conduct?”
The rest of the world—including
and Intipucá, El Salvador—nervously awaits the final verdict on this Iron Maiden case of public indecency.
They have taken Austin by storm and you can see why. These guys rock. It's that simple. enjoy!
Their axman Travis has flair for blues/rock. He just doesn't realize it yet maybe. Blues might be he's calling?...
We known Cassette Tape for a few years now and we love these guys. Lately, with the exodus of Louis, Noe and now Cam only Matt and David (IV) remain from our favorite line-up. They will take a break to regroup and see about finding replacements. As for Cam he is excited about the opportunity to finish his degree.
As their 13th caller we will request a reunion at some point. They have been warned. We hope to make it a memorable event!
Good luck Cam and No! we haven't forgotten about our favorite artist Sam. Together they make a power couple, the sky is the limit...knock 'em dead in Florida. See ya'l soon...
Saturday 19, 2016 We headed to Satellite bar in the east side.
From Japan, this duo is a live band to see.
We have seen hundreds if not thousands of live bands by now. Certain bands we try catch everytime they are in town. Saxon, Overkill & Mugen Hoso just to name a few. Still had the old shirt from their last visit and still fits..nice! New shirt needed plus this guys need all the help they can get.
Flying under the radar Mugen Hoso is a band only Fuglymaniacs can deliver. We hope you enjoy the footage as much as we enjoy the show. Mugen Hoso ROCKS!
Anialator was bringing that old school thrash and Birth AD was backing them up at the White Swan. Also, Serpent Attack and HRA. We were looking forward to this show. Even thou we don't like the sound system in this hellhole know as the White Swan.
As it turns out Anialator cancelled due to singer's voice issues. We did not know however, that Birth AD has dropped out also. We didn't get that memo. Serpent Attack was now last band playing.
Serpent Attack is a new band to us. -Serpent Attack first surfaced the planet in 2010 with founding lead guitarist/vocalist Abel Molano. A few rough recordings and ass kickings later and here we are now! Isreal Pena on Bass, Ryan Solis on guitar, and Nick Bockleman on the drums. We are recording our first full length album so be on the look out all of you Serpent Heads! - Facebook bio.
April 15th - Serpent Attack opens for Grim Reaper and Helstar - $20 Concert Pub North
We never seen them live. Are these guys any good? We know HRA will melt your face with their brutality and vicious attack. This town loves HRA....
Can Serpent Attack close the deal?
Spoke with Abel (singer/guitar) He said we are getting our stuff together so we can record some of our tunes. 'we got most of our stuff set up ....' Stick around and see what you think. Abel is a big Grim Reaper/Helstar/Crimson Glory fan.
We got a like a little background so now let see....
Serpent Attack is here and we liked what we saw. If you can sound good at the White Swan, you can sound better elsewhere. We'll see if their ep can deliver....
Saturday February 6, 2016 Eado's had a 71st Birthday celebration of Bob Marley. We saw the line up, all local bands. This is right up our alley. Local music played by a talented musicians.
As it turns out the place had a great turned out. It was a free event in the middle of a busy bar/club strip of downtown. Jodan Tydings singer/song writer started it all. The crowd was not interested and the chatter was loud. Maybe next time Jordan ...
IDIGINIS style of reggae music is a mix of roots, rock , rhythm and blues, soul and dub. IDIGINIS has shared the stage with a wide variety of super stars which includes: Steel Pulse, Yellow Man, Ms. Chaka Khan, The Original Wailers, Sugar Minott, Freddie McGregor, Third World, Elephant Man, Ky-Mani Marley, Dub Trio, Groundation,Frankie Paul...The full length Cd entitled " Suspended Animation "is out now and available on CD Baby iTunes and Amazon.

Nevelle O'Brady- Drums. Michael Phillips - Trumpet.. JOMO - Hand Drum
As you can see this band hasn't been around a long time. Dem carries a big stick and they are not afraid to use it. Louis Morales is the man with the plan and the vision to do it. In Louis we trust all other pay cash!!
Members: Nathan Rouse - Lead Guitar/Vocals Daniel Waterson - Bass Jonathan Kanick - Drums/Vocals Adam Carman - Percussion Sangone Diagne - Keys Louis Morales - Rhythm Guitar/Vocals
This the first show of 2016 with many more to come hopefully.
