MACABRE picture
Macabre are a pioneering death metal band from the USA. They were formed in 1985 in Chicago, Illinois, and ever since have never had a line-up change. They blend thrash metal, death metal and grindcore to form their own unique style dubbed Murder Metal. Oddly enough, although being one of the first bands ever to play death metal, their influence is not as far reaching as one would think. This is probably due to their lyrical content and humorous attitude towards songwriting. Lyrically, they have a strong focus on serial killers, mass murderers and a touch of sick gore humour. Most lyrics are based upon true stories and are about real infamous personalities. They also have a side project called the Macabre Minstrels that play acoustic songs. Their current label, and their own label, is Decomposed Records.

Macabre's music was strongly influenced by US & UK hardcore, grindcore & death

MACABRE Grim Reality

EP · 1987 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Grim Reality" is an EP release by US grindcore/ death metal act Macabre. The 6 track, 12:28 minutes long EP was released in 1987 by Decomposed Records. "Grim Reality" has seen several re-issues and re-releases but the version I´m reviewing is the 2009 Decomposed Records re-release which features the 6 tracks in the original mix plus a Neil Kernon remastered/remixed version of the 6 tracks. The new versions are placed first on the disc while the 6 original versions are placed last. The instrumental track "Mass Murderer", which was originally only 1:25 minutes long, is in the new version about 4 minutes long but the remaining tracks don´t feature additional material.

It´s interesting to note that Macabre already this early in their career had a well defined and original sound. The music on "Grim Reality" sounds unmistakably like Macabre. The high pitched screaming and at times almost hysterical vocals spiced up with the occasional growl, the serial killer lyrics (infamous murderers like Albert Fish, Son of Sam and Ed Gein are handled in the trademark bizarre and at times comical lyric style, which is on full display in a song title like "Mr. Albert Fish (Was Children Your Favorite Dish?)"), the furiously fast played double bass drums and the short, memorable and powerful grindcore/ death metal tracks. Macabre have a sound that was amd still is completely their own.

Besides the longer playing time on "Mass Murderer", the major difference between the original mix and the remastered/remixed version of the tracks, is the drum sound. The original bass drum sound had a thud sound to it, while the drum sound on the remastered/remixed version of the tracks has the "classic" Neil Kernon produced Macabre sound. It sounds so different that I was actually in doubt if the drums had been re-recorded. I usually don´t appreciate re-mixes that messes too much with the original mix, but in this case I think the new mix sounds superior to the original mix and therefore I welcome the new sound.

For a 1987 release "Grim Reality" is a few years ahead of it´s time. It´s unusually brutal, lyrically vile, fast and aggressive for it´s time and should definitely be counted as one of the earliest grindcore/ death metal releases. A 3.5 star rating is warranted.

MACABRE Grim Scary Tales

Album · 2011 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Grim Scary Tales" is the 5th full-length studio album by US extreme metal act Macabre. The album was released in January 2011 by Decomposed Records/ Hammerheart Records. It´s been 8 long years since the release of "Murder Metal (2003)", but Macabre are not exactly known for being the most productive band on earth. The band have released a couple of minor releases between 2003 and 2011 though.

The music on "Grim Scary Tales" is instantly recognisable as the sound of Macabre. Macabre are probably one of the most unique sounding extreme metal acts out there IMO. On this release they blend elements from death metal, goregrind, black metal, thrash metal, country/ bluegrass, children´s songs and other oddities for your entertainment. The lyrical content is as usual about serial killers delivered with a humourous/ bizarre edge. This time a couple of older legendary ones like "Countess Bathory" and "Bella the Butcher" have been included. While the overall atmosphere off the release is of a somewhat silly character, there´s nothing silly about the excellent musicianship. The Macabre trio are very well playing. Especially the drumming by Denis The Menace stands out. Here´s one of those cases where triggered drums work wonders. Both the sound of the drums and the playing by Denis The Menace are greatly enjoyable. The vocals by Corporate Death are one of the defining features in Macabre´s music too and on this album he sings more varied than ever. You´ll hear his trademark high pitched hysterical vocals on the album but also several types of clean and raw vocal deliveries and some growling too.

"Grim Scary Tales" doesn´t add much new to the Macabre discography though and if you already own classic albums like "Sinister Slaughter (1993)" and "Dahmer (2000)", I don´t think you are in dire need to get "Grim Scary Tales". With that said Macabre still have relevance in 2011 and in its own right "Grim Scary Tales" is a very solid and quite enjoyable album and a 3.5 star rating is warranted.
