The Porridgeface is a 1-Man Metal Army from the Dark Woods of Värmland, Sweden. Influenced by the mightiest names in European Thrash, such as Sodom and Kreator, the Big 4 of American Metal and even Hardcore ala' GBH, it is no surprise that when this Army rolled up to my front door, it had already begun to leave behind a trail of devastation.
The madness behind the method is Anders Lindberg, a metal powerhouse who marched under the banner, "I'm only in it for the drugs", when I met him in 2005. The moniker had much less to do with drugs but was held up as a symbol of reproach for anyone who wanted to force their expectations on this thrash metal machine. He was happy lobbing shells from his small village of Grums into the face of the world and had no need to sacrifice any of his musical integrity to please anyone else.
He wasn't trying to "make it" and he didn't give two shits about "taking it on the road". Hell, when I met him, his other motto was "Fuck Double Bass". His sound was TOTALLY pre-double kick proto-thrash and boy, that pissed off some people. Needless to say, I knew we would get along fine. I can tell you this: When he finally DID come over to the Double-Kick Dark Side...HOLY SHIT! The result was a skull-hammering no one ever expected.
To wrap the Porridgeface enigma in another mystery, you can add in the fact that Lindberg is totally unafraid to cover any song...and I do mean ANY SONG...thrash it up and post it on the net for the public to hear. He literally doesn't give a shit what you think. I do, though. Well, a little bit. Nah, fuck it. I really don't care, but I did want to preserve the tradition of bashing away, making bad ass metal, covering whatever the fuck he wants and not giving a shit what you think for posterity.
So, I signed the bastard and made an album of 10 killer Porridgeface tunes and 2 killer Porridgeface covers for everyone to enjoy. This collection, true to the self-depricating Porridgeface style is called "Canon of Ugliness". Enjoy, Assholes.
