If the spirit of grindcore is dissidence and uniqueness, Cleveland’s JESUSEGG embodies the auditory essence of the warped and troubled mind of the genre. Making a habit of discomfort and a hobby out of experimentation, what is hatched is the spawn of Human Remains, Discordance Axis, and early death grind pioneers who, like this band of lunatics, favored to stand out amongst a crowd rather than be swallowed up by mediocrity. Ensuring to not sacrifice ferocity for individuality, JESUSEGG undoubtedly appeals to grind’s purists as well as those on the fringe of its reach. This is the other side of madness.
JESUSEGG began in 2003 out of a love for all things GRIND. Taking cues from grind innovators such as Human Remains, Discordance Axis, Nasum, Rotten Sound, and Anal Cunt, JESUSEGG embody the true essence of GRIND, combining themes that range from a primary focus on social and political concerns, to gory subject matter and black humor. Their unique use of brass & horns, at times, against an aural wall of blistering noise is reminiscent of eclectic, avant-garde genius, John Zorn‘s works. JESUSEGG‘s self-titled album on SEEING RED RECORDS culminates 13 years of material that over time will firmly place them as underground Grind Legends!
