MORTICIAN was formed in October 1989 by Matt [Sicher] and I, hoping to make an all brutal death grind band.
We've just finished two new songs called "Mortal Massacre" and "Drilling for Brains" and we're working on more. Hopefully on the next demo, there will be at least five songs.Will Rahmer / Mortician interview, Adversity #5, 1990
