O The Accüsed
The Accüsed is a metalcore and crossover thrash band from Seattle, WA, founded in 1981. They are considered to be an important progenitor of the crossover style that bridged the gap between thrashcore and thrash metal, later influencing grindcore and some crust punk bands; as well as an influential band in the Seattle alternative scene. The band calls their music “splattercore,” and their zombie mascot Martha Splatterhead appears on most of their albums. Common themes involve social issues and Martha Splatterhead coming back from the dead to slaughter rapists and child molesters. The Accüsed took an 11 year hiatus in 1992, with members taking time to play in Seattle bands such as The Fartz and Gruntruck. The band reformed in 2003, and continues to be active.
