Puncture Wound

Complete Carnage of Coagulating Cacophonous Corpses

During the mid to late 1990’s, Death Metal nearly all but died off. Only a few old school bands like Incantation,
Immolation and Cannibal Corpse were able to weather the storm and forged on to produce some great albums for
the next generation of Death Metal fans to grasp on to and start their own legacy into the 2000’s. Since then a lot
of bands dedicated to the old school have emerged bearing the torch that is Old School Death Metal (OSDM), and
one of these bands is Gold Coast heavy weight OSDM band, Puncture Wound.
Puncture Wound was founded by rhythm guitarist Trigger Finger Trav (ex – Jesus Anal Penetration) on the 6/6/16,
with the simple vision of creating OSDM. Soon after, he was joined by Alix (ex- Born from the Ashes) on drums in
September 2016. This foundation paved the way for the old school metal to begin flowing. With the few songs they
now had under their belt, a search for a vocalist commenced with Gene (ex – Canniblast) answering an on-line ad
in October 2016, followed by Beau on bass the following month, thus completing the first incarnation
of Puncture Wound.
On the 7/7/17, Puncture Wound released a demo EP entitled Brutal Butchery of Bargain Basement Bodies
(BBoBBB). After the release their lead guitarist dropped out and Trav began the search for a like-minded guitarist
that had the same vision of creating and reliving the glory days of Death Metal. Surprisingly enough, this did not
take long, and after seeing an on-line ad for a guy looking to join a band, Pedro (ex- Vetor) was happy to join the
battalion on lead guitar. This gave the band its current lineup which is active today.
In December 2019 and March 2020 (each date being a Friday, 13th), Puncture Wound released digital singles
Necroinsemination and Anthem of Agony, off their upcoming debut album Complete Carnage of Coagulating
Cacophonous Corpses. The album was finally released 10th of April 2020 as a CD Digipack by CDN Records, the
vinyl release now follows through German label Corrupted Flesh Records.
