Deathcore medley spoofs Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, Thy Art is Murder, and more

Jarrod Alonge’s comedic pursuits in the genres of pop punk, metalcore, djent, and everything in-between has led to him finally releasing an album for his deathcore parody band, Vermicide Violence. Some of his best-performing and most-renowned pieces are his medleys that take on notable melodies from bands within the genre. Jarrod went all-out for Vermicide’s iteration, “Reign of Deafness,” emphasizing the need to protect one’s ears so they may not lose one of their senses.

The bands in this piece are instantly recognizable, like Rings of Saturn’s “Senseless Massacre,” Oceano’s “District of Misery,” and Bring me the Horizon’s “Pray for Plagues” making the rounds.

How many bands can you spot in this track? Personally, I caught on to about 75%, and jammed right along. With the production and vocal delivery mimicking these tracks to a T, you should be able to pick up on some genre staples!

Jarrod Alonge Announces Deathcore Parody Album “The Praxis of Prophylaxis”

A career I’ve followed very closely over the years is of Jarrod Alonge. This talented media mastermind has had success with both his viral YouTube videos covering the music scene, as well as actually venturing into the scene with his own parody music. He has teamed up with ex-Attack Attack! and current Bilmuri vocalist/guitarist Johnny Franck to record a pop-punk album (Sunrise Skater Kids), an emo album (Canadian Softball), a metalcore EP (Amidst the Grave’s Demons), and a catchall album.

One of the bands on the Jarrod Alonge album is Vermicide Violence, taking on deathcore. The abhorrent “Inconceivable Somatic Defecation,” featuring fellow YouTuber Jared Dines, gave a detailed taste of how gross deathcore lyricism can be. While Jarrod has given his other projects more attention, it’s Vermicide Violence’s time to shine with The Praxis of Prophylaxis releasing on April 17th.

The announcement video plays off with hot takes on the current pandemic, which frames the perfect time to release the album, which promises to “educate you on disease prevention, breast cancer awareness and much, MUCH more.” Jarrod’s parody albums have turned out to be delightful listens, with guaranteed laugh-out-loud moments the first time around and jams to be had on repeated listens. If you like to laugh just as much as you like to bang your head, this is a release to keep your eyes on!
