US porn grinders hailing from Illinois, Lividity and their releases speak volumes of heretic, hatred and whores!!
Founded by Dave Kibler in 1993 as an enthusiastic one-man project, the extremely brutal sound of the early days fused massive influences from Hypocrisy, Bloodfeast, Cannibal Corpse and Obituary into an acidic and breath taking musical mixture.
The goal was “the faster the music, the tighter the execution” & “the slower the music, the heavier the tone”… After the first spreading of his music with it’s inhumane lyrical articulations, Dave was joined by some like-minded comrades.
Time for a new era in brutal bliss!! The acquiring of Von Young on vocals / guitar and Jordan Varela on drums in 2005. Then all Hell broke loose!!
Lividity has acquired Garrett Scanlan on drums and the live performance has polished up as well with sheer energy and bone breaking speeds, yet still capturing the old school essence that has been demonstrated through the years.
With the signing to War Anthem Records (Germany) in cooperation with Epitomite Productions (Usa), Lividity is on a world domination campaign, that has brought them to various festivals and tours including 9 Europe invasions which includes-- tours ’99 (Fleshless/Sanatorium), ’03 (Master/Damnable/Mastic Scum). ’07 (Master/Imperious Rex), ‘09 (Requiem/Warpath/Nordor) and festivals ’05 Fuck The Commerce (Ger), ’08 Party.San Open Air (Ger), ’09 Obscene Extreme (Cz) & Kaltenbach (A), ’10 Party.San Open Air (Ger) & Mountains Of Death (Swiss) & Barther Open Air (Ger).
[Other notable tours and fests-- ’04 single show in Lyss, Switzerland, ’06 USA tour w/ locals, ’09 Canada tour (Blastomycosis/Mortify), ’09 Bogota Death Grind Fest (Col.) as well as earlier years of Central IL. Metal Fests, Milwaukee Metal Fests, Ohio Death Fests, Texas Death Fest, Mayhem Peoria Fests… and more]
With the latest release titled “To Desecrate & Defile”2010, expect nothing less than energy and power of “Used, Abused…” coupled with the old school death / grind that has helped shape what Lividity has become!!
