Song Premiere! Madrost’s ‘Zombie Grinder’Tuesday, 27th September 2022
We are streaming “Zombie Grinder,” a cut from Southern California progressive thrashers Madrost’s Lost Lives Volume 1 live album.
“This particular version of ‘Zombie Grinder’ showcases it in its beginning stages,” says guitarist/vocalist Tanner Poppit. “The song harkens back to the old days of thrash and is extremely catchy and relentless in its delivery! Especially on this live album, it has stood the test of time as a brutal slab of severe death thrash metal.”
Lost Lives Volume 1 is a throwback to the band’s early days, featuring songs found on the band’s recently reissued full-length debut, Maleficent. The songs selected for this release were recorded during an October 2009 performance at Hogue Barmichael’s in Newport Beach, CA.
Poppit comments on the release: “The Lost Lives Series is a retrospective of the band’s early career. Starting this series off, this long-forgotten era has officially been restored and is now ready to be shown to the public. This particular release showcases the band in October of 2009, just two years after they originally formed. Warts and all, the band was firing on all cylinders and were well on their way to becoming a much tighter machine. What you are hearing is just that and more. A band with nothing to lose and everything to gain in the years to follow. Stay tuned for more to come in this series as we document the energy of the very foundation that this band maintains even still to this day.”
