BONGINATOR are part of a new wave of young death metal aficionados that embrace the old school values of the style but add a fresh approach. This might cause a heart attack with those who think that the genre became too open-minded after 1986, but BONGINATOR are best described as the missing link between the good old days and death metal here and now. Metal and weed are an already established combination that has already found outlet in such well-established acts as Cannabis Corpse and Weedeater. BONGINATOR were not founded as challengers to such incumbents, but frontman Erik Thorstenn started with a strong vision to carve out his own musical claim when he founded the band in the New England state of Massachusetts during the year 2022. Taking inspiration from classic 80s horror and action movies is a given in this scene, but BONGINATOR blend old school death metal, crazy caveman riffs and the lunacy of 90s Colombian drumming with the relentless brutality of Slayer and even 80s synth-wave elements. Although BONGINATOR are obviously nodding to the past, the are definitely looking towards the future, hence their infamous claim „two-stepping neon weed death“.
