Gutter Instinct signs with Pulverised Records

Pulverised Records are immensely proud to welcome one of the most sinistrous Swedish chainsaw-horde to come out from recent years Gutter Instinct!

Formed only in 2012, Gutter Instinct quickly gained underground attention with their unconventional matrimony between the ferocious HM-2 buzzsaw sound, the early American Death Metal influences and the abrasive misanthropic nature of Black Metal; the end result is a monstrous blend of huge crushing riffs raining down like an avalanche but with a tinge of melodic sensibility reminiscent of their Swedish counterparts.

Johnny Rotten trades in Rock for Bingo

Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten turned sixty in January of this year, and now that the legendary rocker has entered his Golden Years, he’s apparently getting too old for unabashedly brazen hobbies. According to the rock legend himself, since turning 60, playing bingo has appealed to him more than causing Anarchy. Speaking to The Mirror, he said that his hobbies include “a round of bingo”, and that he likes it when “bingo!” is shouted during the game. “I’d rather play a round of bingo than anything else”, he added. Real name John Lydon, Johnny also reported that he is adapting to how his body is changing with age.

After the departure of Herman Frank (Accept), Pänzer recruited Pontus Norgren of Hammerfall to help out their warfare, as well as V.O. Pulver (G.U.R.D., Poltergeist) on guitar, who already helped out on the latest live shows and now became a fulltime member of Pänzer.
