LIVIDITY line up:
Dave Kibler - guitar / backing vocals
Matt Bishop - guitar / vocals
Aaron Heath - bassist
James Whitehurst - drums
Lividity began as a 1 man project in 1993 with Dave, victimizing the underground with his first 3 song promo '94 recorded on a yamaha 4 track recorder and a drum machine containing 3 songs... Altar Pices, Mortal Impalement, and Spewing Chunks!! The ideas were dark and dismal, yet heavy and torturous!! As you will hear influences taken from such great bands as Hypocrisy, Bloodfeast, Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Paralysis, etc... molded into what will become Lividity!!
Tommy Davis joined in on drums and vocals, adding depth to the mix and recording a rehearsal demo titled, "Ritual Of Mortal Impalement" '95 with 9 songs like Graveyard Delicacy, The Process Of Disembowelment, Food, etc.. 6 of these tunes were released on the split cassette from Illinois' murder junkies, Morgue Fetus in '95!!
After the split of Illinois' death squad, Desecration, we joined forces with Matt (guitar / backing vocals) and Aaron (bass / vocals) Summer of '95! Went to Private Studios (IL) and recorded the 4 song demo, "Rejoice In Morbidity" '96 through Immortal Records (Pol.)! Containg the classic cuts of Orfice Reconstruction, Fetal Scabs, Tampered Flesh, and Rectal Wench....
Aaron had left the band and we hired Mike Smith on bass from thrashers Avatar (IL), and Matt moved to vocals!! We went to Sinewave Studios (IL) and recorded the 11 song CD, "Fetish For The Sick" '97 through Ablated Records (OH)! This sparked off such twisted anthems as Pussy Lover, Lacerations Of An Unclean Twat, and My Cock It Bleeds as well as rerecorded versions of "R.O.M.I. " demo songs!!
Tommy had left band and we hired Nick Null, Nov. '97.... While we were writing music, we released a Live CD titled "Show Us Your Tits" '99 through United Guttural Records (IL) with bonus "R.I.M." demo at the end plus on cassette format through D.I.Y. label Maniacal Brutality Prod. in Latvia (Europe) titled, "Anal Action Live" '99!! We went back to Private Studios (IL) and recorded a 9 song CD titled "The Age Of Clitoral Decay" '00 through United Guttural Records again! Also was licensed to Erebos Productions (Slk) on CD, cassette, and t-shirts in September 2000... licensed to Extreme Souls Productions (Indonesia) on cassette May 2001... bought / licensed with Apidocere Records (Fra) August 2001....
Lividity used 3 of the songs to complete the split 7" with German gore whores, Profanity.. released through Cudgel Agency (Ger) February 2000!!!
June 1999, the Europe nation welcomed Lividity as we set off to play 3 countries with fellow demons, Fleshless (Cz) and Sanatorium (Slk) w/ special supports Godless Truth (Cz), Perversist (Cz), Intervalle Bizzare (Cz), Appaling Spawn (Cz), Amorph Pneuma (Ger), Demented Retarded (Cz), 4 Seats 4 Invalides (Cz), Monolith (A), Grind 6.4 (Cz) amongst others!! We trudged through Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia....
On a sad and tragic note... we have had the oppurtunity to excell and write some of the best music we could conjure up from our blackened souls with the creative help from NIck Null!! His life was taken from us July 2000 with a fatal heart attack and didn't recover, so our thoughts and love are with Nick everyday and his family!!
James Whitehurst has been slamming the skins for us since April 2001 and is a machine and will only help solidify this unit... We have entered Mercenary Digital Studio (IL) March 2002 to create what we hope will be a landmark release! "...'Til Only The Sick Remain" will be the title and street date is set for June 24, 2002 through Morbid Records (Ger)!! Will contain such songs as Coated With My Semen, Snack Size Tits, T.L.C. (Tight 'Lil Cunt), The Second Cumming, Fetal Scabs, Unrelenting Homicidal Obsession, A Womans Place Is On My Face, Conception Through Ingestion, and more!!
Lividity has signed a 2 album deal with German label, Morbid Records!! We welcome Olaf and Carsten into the Lividity camp and appreciate their hard work ethic and longevity of their company!! Morbid Rec. have been very supportive to Lividity for the past few years and makes this deal a special one!! The title will be .....
"...Til Only The Sick Remain" released Summer 2002!! We are working hard to create some crushing tunes that will be more mature in structure yet unrelentless brutality in true Lividity fasion!! Cum support the band that supports the scene!!!!!!!!!
KEEPIN' IT FUCKING SICK!!!!!!!!
