Born of the ashes of Pete Helmkamp’s previous band, Order from Chaos, Angelcorpse formed in 1995 in Kansas. Helmkamp, Gene Palubicki and John Longstreth released debut album Hammer of the Gods in 1996. In 1998, the band relocated to Florida. Angelcorpse focuses on warfare, anti-Christianity, and strife, blending elements of black metal with Tampa death metal, aided by drummer Tony Laureano. Angelcorpse has a bit of a tumultuous history, breaking up in 2006 and 2009, but they have been reborn once again, with Helmkamp on bass/vocals, Palubicki shredding, and Ronnie Parmer (Perdition Temple) on drums. This is their first MDF appearance.
