“With a pitch-black sense of humor, the Cleveland death metal quartet boils the genre down to its essence – which means they live and die by the riff” PITCHFORK
“This Cleveland collective are out to slaughter unsuspecting death metal fans with a fury heavily rooted in death metal’s past, bringing to mind the best combinations of the sounds from the late 1980s to early 1990s with an undeniable underlying groove provided by the guitars and bass.” INVISIBLE ORANGES
“They’ve only been around since 2019, but 200 Stab Wounds shows are already notorious bloodbaths.” REVOLVER
“You are walking into a slaughterhouse and 200 Stab Wounds is holding the sledgehammer.” METAL INJECTION
“The noise that 200 Stab Wounds have been making is far from subtle.” BLOODY DISGUSTING
“200 Stab Wounds demonstrate a skill at splicing together riffs, beatdowns and groove into something obscenely compelling. They’re adept at serving up a cornucopia of nastiness that can change at the drop of a hat.” DISTORTED SOUND
About the band:
Formed in 2019, the Cleveland death metal quartet that Brooklyn Vegan refers to as “Stupidly Heavy” pays homage to old-school death metal in the vein of Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, and Mortcian while carving out their own brutal sound in this new wave of death metal starting to boil up in the metal scene.
