Before there was CONDEMNED?, on Nuclear Blast Records, in the early 1980s there was CONDEMNED2DEATH (2nd Nuclear Blast Release) and then even CONDEMNED ATTITUDE. However, in between those bands, there still remains an over-looked, red-headed middle child mothered by the Creature from the Black Lagoon and hidden away within the stench-rotted sewers of Sacramento, California dubbed by homeless fishermen as the legendary BLACK MACKEREL. The illusive beast has only been spotted at night between the hours of 8pm and 2am jumping from the sludge to snatch bottles of whiskey while thrashing it's body in a slam-dance fashion only to escape after displaying a victory dance atop the rivers of pisshit like an enraged, coked-out hesher moshing in a circle pit.
This strange anomaly of the aquatic kingdom can only be lured into sight with the sounds of Red Fang, NoMeansNo, The Melvins, Black Flag and Black Sabbath. It's legacy is kept alive by disgruntled fishermen along with old-school and new-school headbangers alike!
