For Immediate Release:
LEGENDARY BAND REPULSION TO REUNITE FOR APPEARANCE AT 2003 MILWAUKEE METALFEST; CLASSIC ALBUM 'HORRIFIED' REISSUED
Death metal / grindcore innovators Repulsion have reunited nearly fifteen years after the release of their beyond-classic album Horrified. Repulsion (Scott Carlson (vocals / bass), Aaron Freeman (guitar), Matt Olivo (guitar) and Dave Grave (drums) have announced plans to perform live -- for the first time in over 10 years -- as one of the headlining acts at the 2003 Milwaukee Metalfest, set to take place July 25th and 26th in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
In addition, Repulsion's Horrified album has been reissued in a deluxe 2xCD format by Relapse Records. Originally released in Europe during 1989 by members of Carcass on their Necrosis Records label, Horrified is a genre-pioneering masterpiece that has influenced almost every band playing death metal, most notably NAPALM DEATH, Carcass, Entombed, Cannibal Corpse, etc. The reissued and remastered Horrified includes the band's classic LP, the Excruciation 7", and the elusive Repulsion demos, plus a bonus disc replete with extremely rare demo material and a live radio broadcast from Genocide (Repulsion pre-1987). The recently reissued Horrified received an unprecedented 11/10 (!) rating in Terrorizer Magazine -- the first such score in the history of the publication -- with the noted metal tome calling the band "Visionaries, legends, pioneers" and "the yardstick by which all other grind bands are measured." To this day Horrified still stands as one of the fastest and heaviest records ever unleashed on the world, setting the bar for all extreme metal acts that followed.
Guitarist Matt Olivo commented "It has been nothing short of an honor for us to be receiving such overwhelming recognition after all these years. I'm personally looking forward to kicking ass at the Milwaukee Metalfest and beyond."
