2 idiots and a puppet drummer named dickpancakes. This is the most stupid metal band in the universe. Formed in 1998 by brothers Pete and Dan Manzella, (Piz 'n' Spam Manwhat) Maggot Twats' mission was to grind against the grain of the death metal scene in Chicago. To piss against the wind of the angry folded arms, and seriousness of the genre. Their debut album "Stuffed Animal Orgy" was recorded and finished the summer of 1998. The album was recorded on a digital 8 track in their mothers basement. (fuckin losers) Soon after its completion, the albums circulation throughout the scene had started to raise many eyebrows, and pissed off a lot of eyebrows. The heaviness of the music with its idiotic lyrical content stirred up many mixed emotions. It was contradicting and poking fun at itself, which in turn made fans of the genre go one of two ways. They fucking loved it and went ape shit over it, or they wanted to beat the shit out of us outside the shows. Maggot Twat didn't actually start playing out until 3 years after "Stuffed Animal Orgy" was completed. Once they realized they had something happening right in front of them, they took their fingers out of their asses and took to the stage. Since then, their stage shows have grown into full out mutimedia productions, projecting pornographic images with nintendo games, death metal singalongs, puppet drummers, ball launching machines aimed at themselves, chicken feet launched into the crowd, unicycling across the stage, sawing instuments in half with a sawzall, blowing out fans eardrums with airhorns, eating cereal onstage with fans, diving into garbage cans loaded with broken glass (that only happened once) and nearly getting arrested for having the Barrington fire dept called on them, and exposing porno projections to all ages audiences. Also in circulation is the infamous "Morons That Ruined Heavy Metal" DVD that has spread like wildfire since its release. Maggot Twat is currently in the studio (more like Spams' bedroom) finishing up their long awaited sophmore release. Plans for the future are so fuckin ridiculous that they cannot be exposed.
ABOUT THE CD "8 BIT APOCALYPSE"
This was written a month prior to release:
The long and anticipated album is coming to an end. 11 months in the studio...We have created a masterpiece, and I have to say it is the best work we have ever done to date. Piz and I sometimes can't help but crack up all night out of laughter...and wish that I could spend the time with all of you during the making. It's one thing to perform a show, but it's another to create it.
For those of you who have just heard of us, our last full length CD was released 8 years ago to this month called "Stuffed Animal Orgy." Being that we are experimental, we recorded the album when home studios made the break in "Digital" recording, using one of the first multi-trackers ever on the market. It only had 8 tracks, but we sworn to make the album sound like a million dollar recording. When it was finished, we couldn't believe how great it turned out. 8 years later, our recording studio grew, and now we have to technology to do the impossible in recording. Of course we are two guys, and a drum machine has it permanent fix in the band. This was the first feat to overcome...NOT MAKING IT SOUND LIKE ONE. Of course there is only so much you can do to saturate that...so we went ahead and set up a drumset, taking samples of each individual drum, and loading it up to the project.
So far, the album consists of 138 tracks (without vocals) giver take a few. Were planning on having a release party for the disc, but no confirmed dates as of yet, so keep your yummy yeay-eyes open for it! We can't wait for all of you to hear this disc because yet again...I think we've outdone ourselves. I guess what I am trying to say is that without all of you, I would have no reason to fuck my underwear anymore.
