Biography

There are four entries for this name.

1) Macabre is a band from Chicago, Illinois. They blend thrash metal, death metal, and grindcore (sometimes with nursery rhymes and folk melodies) to form their own unique style dubbed murder metal. Lyrically, they have a strong focus on serial killers, mass murderers and a touch of sick gore humor. Most lyrics are based upon true stories and are about real infamous personalities. The content of the lyrics is historically accurate, and band members actually have known and met with convicted serial killers such as John Wayne Gacy on a personal level. They also have a side project called the Macabre Minstrels that play acoustic camp fire songs. Their current label is Decomposed Records.

Macabre’s music was strongly influenced by U.S. and U.K. hardcore, grindcore, and death metal acts, ranging from The Accüsed and Cryptic Slaughter to Possessed and Napalm Death. Macabre’s sickening sense of humor alienated casual metal listeners. However, it helped to gain a small but strong cult status among fans.

2) 18 Visions had a couple of names before it got finalized. The fist name was DANTE, taken from a song by the Seattle band Dead Skin Mask, “Dante’s Inferno”. The band may or not have played a show under this moniker, but I remember seeing it on at least one flyer. After that, the band changed it’s name to Macabre (pronounced MAC-a-bree by the HB 9 Balls).

The lineup of the band on the demo was James Hart on vocals, Ken Floyd on drums, Dave Peters on guitar, and Billy Sisler on bass.
