Kill Maim Burn
Stuttgart, Germany's Debauchery were conceived in the year 2000 by vocalist and guitarist Thomas "The Bloodbeast" Gurrath (aka "Blood God"/"Bluttgott"), initially using the charming name of Maggotc**t before making the change, and releasing a first demo tape, simply called Zombie, the following year. A death metal band by trade, Debauchery displayed an acute taste for the macabre on their 2003 debut album, Kill Maim Burn, where Gurrath, bassist C**tkiller, and drummer Wargrinder indulged in a veritable lyrical bloodbath steeped in war and gore -- a trend that was reflected in the band's promo photos and stage shows, and would persist across ensuing albums like Rage of the Bloodbeast (2004), Torture Pit (2005), Back in Blood (2007), Continue to Kill (2008), and Rockers & War (2009). Ironically, it was revealed in 2010 that Gurrath was otherwise employed as a high-school philosophy teacher by day, but had to resign his position when school officials found out about his parallel musical activities and forced him to choose between the two. Naturally, he chose Debauchery.
