Krotchripper is basically a brutal death metal band. Formed in 2009, they have done nothing but piss everyone off except for themselves with their aggressive and moderately original compositions, drunken tyrannous tirades at live shows, and failure to conform to the status-quo of certain underground metal traditions (old and new).
A year after formation, we released a 10 copy hand made demo ep that we gave to a few friends and mailed to a few labels. No success. No one wanted anything to do with us in the Quad Cities (Rock Island, Moline, Davenport, etc..).
We hit up a few labels on Myspace and PJ Scoogins of Necrotic Records took our vision seriously. We had only played a few live shows at this point and decided to ask Mass Murder Messiah to join forces for a super brutal bestial split. The bands decided to title the split, "Beaten, Eaten, & Adorned in Entrails" but we forgot to write it anywhere on the album!
Thanks to PJ's hard work, the split went international to labels, distros, and fans quicker than Grimtooth could take a dump, and the band was, over time, institutionalized into the book of heavy metal. The self-proclaimed genre of "Troll Grind" was quickly lost on weak minds.
Troll Grind is brutality and philosophy. It is knowledge and power. Understanding and appreciation. Fun and games. Krotchripper continues to decimate humanity with pulverizing blackened brutal gore groove death brutality.

"This is the first time i'm hearing each of these bands .The first band is Krotchripper who plays a brutal and sick death metal in the vein of Mortician,Incantation and Immolation too.They start things off at neckbreaking heavy stuff right off the bat,just pure brutality.They have 8 songs on this split cd .Mass murder messiah is the second band featured on this cd ,They also play fast brutal death metal but with a different approach ,more technical and well played too, they have 10 songs on this one.These guys come up with some devastating riffs in their blistering death metal. I was very impressed by the cool intros along with the music and i know a brutal death metal fan would eat this up.Support the fucking underground and seek this one out!"

"Right from start to finish this split delivers the unrelenting blast-brutality that you have come to expect from the slamming brutal death metal bands of today. Seldom does this release ever slow down, and mostly only because of the few samples that are scattered around the tracks. Krotchripper delivers great slamming parts with groovy headbang-forcing riffs and guttural throat-shredding vocals. The production is fitting for the genre, but sometimes it can be a little muddy. Overall Krotchripper's part of the split is a magnificent show of brutal force, but it features no surprises whatsoever. Krotchripper is 100 % straight forward drummachine powered slamming brutal death metal, and if that is what you're expecting, you won't be disappointed. Despite the slight lack of creativity and variety, this split has so little bad about it that it deserves a staggering 7/10 guitars."

"We don't know if Necrotic [Records] has a quarterly quotient tabulating the amount of gore presented via hilariously sick song titles (MMM's 'Trache Fuck' and KR's 'Rotten Meat Rottisserie,' for example) and gurgling guttural vocals (both bands have 'em in spades). If so, these two drum machine-powered bands - with MMM sounding the more realistic - have done all of the legwork to keep Necrotic in the black for the rest of the year."

"Amateurism & Heavy Beastiality. Guaranteed 100% sick. If you like the underground death and if you support the idea of not hear guitar solos and nothing but the brutal and vicious beast, you can read more. The arrangements are simplistic (drum machine does not help). But! These little guys have already mastered to perfection the unmericful vicious groove. With ease, they pound in unrelentlessly tortured rifts that get stuck in your head from day one. Once you've listened, you have only one desire: pressing the repeat button on the CD player. Guilty pleasure because sound quality is average. It's so good we can forget its shortcomings. Anyway these guys have all the qualities of composition and riffage to hint at an impressive margin of progression. Just let it mature like any good wine. They are still a bit green, but I'm sure that with a little luck and a little more time in the studio Krotchripper has every chance to fully take off."
