Durban, South Africa: originating in Southern Africa, of all places, comes a widely celebrated parody band. What? After all, how seriously does the general public think we metalheads really take ourselves? Therefore, the ingenious creation of XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX has triggered worldwide acclaim in “brutal” circles. Ironically, even surpassing (in some ways) its members’ more credible band, Vulvodynia, which in its own right has achieved international status.
XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX, going live, and going abroad.
And so with well over 700,000 plays on youtube for its debut EP Gore, XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX is at work on a suitably titled Gore 2.0. What’s more is that it’s been invited to play a live debut in Germany no less, at DeathFeast Open Air 2018. We inquired as to how on Odin’s bloodiest earth this was possible? Many may find the answer somewhat confounding.
“I literally commented on the first version of the poster that we would play our first ever show at DeathFeast if they let us play and then boom, it happened. Simple as that!” ~ Kris Xenopoulos (guitar, …that band)
Of course, the guitarist is well known as credible to DeathFeast organizers, since Vulvodynia performed there already in 2017. This band, however, will also feature on live stage the mystery man of Vulvodynia: guitarist; producer, and; usually homebody, Byron Dunwoody.
Annotation: give it a listen, if you dare. You might even not find it completely revolting!

Kris also shared a little more background on the project which he and Vulvodynia frontman, Duncan Bentley conceptualized:
“Duncan and I spent two hours coming up with the most ridiculous, most brutal and edgy name we could think of; because we just thought it would be super funny to start a comedy/meme death metal project that was just over the top when it came to everything. We got the most unreadable logo possible made to add to the fun”. ~ Kris Xenopoulos
What’s in a name? Some might prefer not to know…
The band’s name is actually an acronym, and it reads – somewhat distastefully to those unfamiliar with irony and humour of parody – as: Acidic Vaginal Liquid Explosion Generated By Mass Amounts Of Filthy Fecal Fisting And Sadistic Septic Syphilic Sodomy Inside The Infected Maggot Infested Womb Of A Molested Nun Dying Under The Roof Of A Burning Church While A Priest Watches And Ejaculates In Immense Perverse Pleasure Over His First Fresh Fetus. Not our own words, we promise! Kris continued:
“We just always do what ever seems fun at the time and if it ends up catching on, we have no choice but to continue. Our fans mean everything to us and if they enjoy something we are doing, we will continue until no one cares anymore! We had no idea this was going to get so big, but it did”. ~ Kris Xenopoulos
XavlegbmaofffassssitimiwoamndutroabcwapwaeiippohfffX promises that Gore 2.0 will be a full length album. Already, a loathsome artwork has got fans of brutal delights into a feeding frenzy. The future looks bloody.
