LIGHT TO DARK AND LIFE TO DEATH
After Recording Tormented Mutation, KC was quick to jump back into the studio and re-record his old demo’s to make them official crystal studio releases. However the studio time was for only 3 sessions, 3 days only so KC had the beats and the lyrics already written from years ago. Recording 6 songs a day. The time was short as KC was low on funds from his last album release and since these were all old recordings,
KC worked out a deal with Psycho Thug and basically had to rush the album. KC this time teamed up with TRIPS another local rapper who worked at The Crypt. After a long three days of camping in the studio and sleeping on the desktop The album was completed in 4 days after mastering, alot of errors with volumes were left unnoticed KC ended up re-mastering the album before it was repressed after the first 100 copies were sold. KC says this album is basically Chapter One, as a Demo version was released in 2005 with a similar track listing only on the Internet and recorded with a headset mic.
Along side the release of the A Dirty Fuckin Murder Music Video all came out in December 2005 all before KC found The Crypt. but it was kept as Chapter 2 in the end as its all old music re done and its chapters stand by when it was released in the studio. KC does not recommend this as his best work, as it was really rushed and pretty much one take the whole album its basically the Basement Cuts of all KidCrusher’s Early Music done properly for the public to hear.
BLACK CIRCLE MAGIC (Raw Version)
With so much energy towards putting out new music, a few months after Light to Dark and Life to Death dropped THE CRYPT recording studio was shut down and everybody went their separate ways, KC had no studio no money but a lot of creativity. KC teamed up with TRIPS again and bought their own Sound-card for KC’s PC and recorded the third chapter in the chronicles of Kidcrusher at their own house. Without a Studio Microphone, they went ahead and recorded the album within a week for the fun of it working with Waiztid from Dyad Souls who flew down from Sydney to ” Hang Out “ which ended up being a Murder Massacre on the Microphone instead. Also with their studio homie CHICO and KidCrushers first International Collaboration with Sweden Rappers The Dead Creeps Orchestra. The album was released on the internet as a free download on the 15th of March 2007.
CHAPTER FOUR: CANNIBAL CLOWN
With help from local rapper Nascent, KidCrusher was able to hook up and borrow a Studio Microphone for his next and most controversial album release to this date. Cannibal Clown. To begin with KidCrusher wrote a single for a movie called ” The Disturbed ” an Indie Horror Film from Melbourne. The Director of the film asked KC to fly down to Melbourne and shoot a music video in HD on the set of the movie that year. With a Hardcore Metal Rap album fully recorded and produced by KidCrusher with Instrumental Production by Beatnik & Mystik Manners. KC put in 100% intothis Dark Story about Cannibals in todays day.
With a massive featuring from French Band Bawdy Festival’s Lead Singer TEDDY DKC on the song Faces Of Death, and a hit single Cannibal Cantina which later a raw unreleased music video was released on the Meet The Monstors DVD. This CD easily drew the attention of thousands of fans world wide and sold over 10,000 Digital Downloads on Soundclick & iTunes. The album also caught the attention of FANGORIA MAGAZINE which done an Interview with KidCrusher on the set of the Music Video ” Meet The Monstors ” and the album was reviewed and posted online.
STONED AS A MOTHER FUCKER This would be the last time Stash & KidCrusher worked together due to a fall out during studio time and other personal issues. The album was over run by Stash, due to arguments on KC’s Style. So KC always likes to say, This is a Stash album, Featuring KidCrusher on almost every song. After a dramatic change in KC’s life, and some friendship issues Stash & KC then pulled the plug on promoting the album or doing anything further with the project after there fall out. KC was also working on Cannibal Clown at the same time of this project, so it was not his highest priority. KC did announce there will be a Return of the Grinch some where down the track.
CHAPTER FIVE: METAL MURDER MIXTAPE
This album was created over 2 years, as it was a mass of collaborations with several producers and artists which down the track pilled into one folder. The album was first going to be a 10 Track Free EP but because of the amp behind it, KC decided to rock it out to a full length album and write 10 extra songs. during this time the single released from the album ” Killin Shit ” caught the attention of Psychopathic Records. Insane Clown Posse’s Record Label, which asked KC to be apart of a Compilation CD called ” Tunnel Runners “ so the album was put on hold, while doing that and also pulling out the biggest investment of doing a show in the United States at the Gathering of the Juggalos in 2008. KC was booked and made the flight with his mate Chico to do a tag team set, flew into Minneapolis and was DENIED ENTRY for an old fine KC had for possession of under 5grams of Marijuana and was told he has to wait five years from his fine date before he will be granted permission to enter the United States. With the Deep Depression over missing out of the show, the cd Tunnel Runners still released on August 8th 2008 in stores world wide with KidCrushers single ” Fucked Up “. KC then went through a very rough time with relationships and money and living issues and went into a pit for a while until late 2008, The Metal Murder Mixtape was released just before Christmas and is still to this day KidCrusher’s TOP SELLING ALBUM on VICTIM GEAR and ITUNES.
SIDE PROJECT: BLACK CIRCLE MAGIC
RE-RELEASE VERSION after two years from the album’s release, KC received so much feedback that BCM became a Fan Favorite Album with all his Quality Music behind him, KC decided to Amp up and Clean up BCM and re-release it in 2009 with 5 bonus brand new songs and a music video. Fun Fact: Black Circle Magic was actually released THREE TIMES, the first time it was released was in 2005 with only Six Songs.
CHAPTER SIX: METAL MURDER MIXTAPE V.2
After the first volume of Metal Murder was released, and the pressure of not being able to tour America. KC has been touring around Australia every chance he has promoting his work and has created a swarm of zombie Juggalo metal fans and they demanded another metal mix tape! With the success of the first volume, KC was quick to put it together.
One Year after the first mixtape, the 2nd volume followed with some of KC’s best production work and some crazy singles like ” Without You ” and ” Blood Drunk ” which drove fans insane. There has not been too much record of KC in the studio over the last few albums due to the fact they were all recorded over time while they were being written. KC has had his own studio put together during the making of the first volume of Metal Murder, with his own microphone and new pc set up.
SIDE PROJECT: KCAVEMEN – GONDWANALAND
KidCrusher took a break from his horror core act after his show opening for The Berzerker when he teamed up with the drummer from Berzerker (Todd Hansen) on a project called KcaveMen. KC had the idea of KcaveMen for several years without having a full line up and a drummer able enough to do the skills he was after for the band. Being highly inspired by The Berzerker for the project years before, it was amazing the actual drummer would be apart of the band. KidCrusher was quick to put together members of the band, new custom masks, write and record guitars with each member, several of the guitar tracks were 100% written by KC. Record the drum tracks and master the album within 8 months and then hit the road and tour.
With Todd Hansen being a busy drummer helping out several bands, The group went on
a break after the tour and are planning another album in the future.
CHAPTER SEVEN: THE GRINCH
Since the release of ” Stoned as a Mother Fucker ” a side project released in 2007 by Stash & KidCrusher, KC has spoken out about doing an album based upon the song ” The Grinch On A Dope Pinch “ which was featured on Stoned as a Mother Fucker. The song became a fan favourite quickly and as well as one of KC’s favourite. KC attempted to work on this project for Christmas in 2009 but was low on time, funds, ideas and instrumentals so he put it on the back burner. Then again thought about doing it in 2010 but thought he had no time, Starting in November. A week later he was asked to work on the Faygoluvers Christmas Mixtape and ripped up the song ” Scared Stooopid ” with Trips and ever since, out of the blue, creativity was flowing for the new project. Instrumentals and Ideas were flying around the place so KC busted ass for a month every day to deliver a free album for Christmas which ended up going from 8, to 10, to 12, to 14 tracks long. This is the quickest album ever assembled by KC, and not half ass’d, we are actually really proud of it. The album is set to be a free download over xmas, and limited copies for sale on victim gear.
CHAPTER EIGHT: TEDDY VS. KC
This album came together after KidCrusher asked Teddy DKC to do a small project together when he noticed his band in Europe broke up. Teddy travelled to Australia in March 2011 to work on the project in person. First off KidCrusher booked an Australian Tour called the first annual Australian FREAK SHOW with Teddy, After they got back they recorded two songs together and released six viral videos to promote the album.
Teddy ended up leaving the project as a low priority for his stay in Australia
So KidCrusher ended up finishing the album solo with Teddy only on 3 out of 8 songs.
KC also mixed together a DVD for the project as it was so small, which features live videos from the tour, the viral videos, some footage of KC recording in the studio and other special features. The Album was released on Friday the 13th of May 2011.
SIDE PROJECT: Rectal Birth – The Nothing
KC went back to his roots with the band name of his first high school metal band “Rectal Birth” and based the album upon The Neverending Story Movie storm “The Nothing” with his high influences from The Berzerker, Moshpit & Industrial Strength Records, KC worked in the studio extremely drunk on bourbon and viscously put together this beast of an album, which to begin with was only going to be for fun, and not a serious release. However after the album was coming together, KC thought it deserved a proper release. With the extreme 220bpm hardcore cybergrind metal that comes with the album, not many KidCrusher fans were following the project, yet the release was strong and came with a music video but there is no set future for the band.
