Evil is a word that gets tossed around today by many bands in hard music. The people that you really have to watch out for are the ones that don’t market their sadistic thoughts as a sales ploy. Cleveland based Ringworm is evil incarnate. True devotees of the occult and self-professed followers of serial killers, their music has a viral tendency to infect, weaken and debilitate.
Front man Human Furnace’s deranged vocals induce mass violence and carnage whenever unleashed. The sheer and utter brutality of their music has been converting the underground masses all around the world for over a decade. Their rabid and fanatical followers have become the Manson Family of the new millennium, willing to cause whatever destruction and chaos is ordered of them.
Following the release of their 1993 debut The Promise Ringworm decided to pursue personal ventures, the Human Furnace concentrated his focus on tattooing and his artwork, while other members joined up with hardcore legends Integrity. 2001 saw Ringworm emerge from their dark place in the shadows with their critically acclaimed Victory debut Birth Is Pain, the soundtrack to the annihilation of society. Destined to be a mainstay in every hardcore metal fan’s headphones, Ringworm shows any newcomers to the genre exactly what hardcore metal is supposed to be.
"Throughout our existence I've felt that Ringworm has always been the "black sheep," never quite fitting into any specific genre mold. Sometimes too metal for hardcore, other times too hardcore for metal. We enjoy distorting the line between the two and, often, completely destroying it." - Human Furnace
