Thy Flesh Consumed
Originally started by Dan Jamieson (ex-Sloth; guitar) and Gerald Smith (ex-Sloth; drums) who soon after recruited John Haight (back. vocals/guitar) and Peter "Pnumatic" Mestre (vocals), the original line-up of Thy Flesh Consumed lasted only one show, with Haight leaving for personal issues before Randy "Crust" Jeddry joined on bass. At first Smith told Mestre to write lyrics about any thing he wanted, but when he wrote important social lyrics the band grew to the idea and figured he was on to something. Melding styles of Grind, Crust, Death, and Black Metal they would deliver a disgusting but effective slab of sonic brutality featuring absolutely (as the band biography would so clearly declare) no drum triggers, no pitch shifters on vox. and no bass picks, to produce an old-school style of Death Metal with Smith, Jamieson, Mestre andJeddry recruting Dave Burns (ex-Burning Moon; guitar) for the Dawn Of The Impurity Design (2002) and End Of Blind Obedience (2003) releases, their only thus far.
