Severed Headshop are a deathgrind band from South Bend, Indiana. Blending brutal death metal with black metal sorcery and played with a grindcore sneer – Severed Headshop have a sound that is wholly their own. Their music echoes everyone from Cattle Decapitation to Severe Torture by way of Prostitute Disfigurement, but the end result is unique. With bloodthirst in mind they’ve roared out of the underground playing a boatload of shows to keep their name in front of fans across the region.
They formed in the summer of 2010 by drummer Justin Wallisch and Chris ‘Togy’ Bolka (who would leave the band in 2017) with the sole purpose of making intense and unrelenting death metal that still grooved. Over the years that followed they would bring in bassist Ian Dygulski and vocalist Joe Jacobs. The lineup has most recently been completed by guitarist and longtime friend Ryan Kuder who has added his own unique flair to the music. In 2018 the band was finally able to release their first demo entitled “It’s About Fucking Time.” Recording, mixing and mastering everything themselves, Severed Headshop has remained true to their DIY roots throughout.
Now the band has joined forces with Everlasting Spew Records to release their debut EP, “The Fuckening.” It sees them distilling a decade of experience as a band into a few ferocious tracks. Their fusion of genres and devastating underground assault continues to capture the imagination. With plans for heavy touring and the promise of even more new material on the way, the future has never looked brighter for Severed Headshop. Underground death metal freaks across the world look out - “The Fuckening” has begun.
