Cephalic Carnage are a grindcore/death metal band from Colorado, USA who have dubbed their sound "Hydrogrind" because of their appreciation for marijuana along with grindcore and death metal. The band was formed in 1992 by vocalist Leonard "Lenzig" Leal and guitarist Zac Joe but went on hiatus shortly after recording a demo tape. The band was resurrected in 1996 and Leal and Joe were joined by long-time mainstays Steve Goldberg (guitar) and John Merryman (drums). The band signed with Relapse Records in 2000. Although primarily a grindcore/death metal band, Cephalic Carnage have also experimented with doom metal, sludge, and metalcore (the latter as parody resulting in the song "Dying Will Be The Death Of Me" which appeared on 2005's "Anomolies" LP).
