Cephalic Carnage finds redemption in the sewers of the death metal underground

"We were told there was a lot of pop and poppy punk rock stuff happening down there," Zac says. "I'm not sure the crowd knew what to make of us at first. But the room was packed for the whole show."

And while Zac swears that all of the nearly primordial aggression and energy is authentic, he says it's more a sign of the players' recreational catharsis than some deep-seated dementia.

"I feel like I'm becoming almost a completely reasonable and adjusted adult," says Zac, a new father who, like several of his bandmates, works in the service industry. "But there is so much frustration involved in even playing this music, because parts of it are so complicated. I feel like, if I didn't have this outlet on stage, I'd just carry that stuff around with me. You don't want to be jumping up and screaming at people and waving things in their faces when you walk down the street."

The members of Cephalic Carnage are proud to be a bunch of grindcore nutjobs.

"You can get beat up that way. Forget that -- I'd rather be violent in my music than in my life."
