about

California's grindcore/death metal misfits Cretin return with their first new material of freakish, extreme metal in over eight years! A perverted homage to the glory days of proto-grind and raw, depraved death metal, Cretin have perfected the lo-fi stylings of Repulsion, Autopsy and early Napalm Death with their highly anticipated sophomore full-length, Stranger. Oozing with violent, buzz-saw guitars, grinding grooves and blasts, a gut-wrenching low end and utterly deviant vocals/lyrics, Stranger will bring a malignant smile to those who prefer their listening sick and twisted.

Cretin San Jose, California

Formed in 1992 by guitarist and vocalist, Marissa Martinez, and bassist, Matt Widener, Cretin was the Santa Cruz Mountains' answer to the wave of death metal and grind that was infesting the scene.

Track Name: It
Long ago I spotted It: my double—every feature, perfect. It grinned as if to say, “We start and only end

when one is dead.” I swallowed all the pills prescribed, agonizing how to hide when It knew to look, and

running was doomed since It owned my stride.

I turned my home into a trap; beneath my bed I slept, and did the opposite of what I’d do, and lived,

instead, a stranger. Oh, years did pass, how I grew old, and wisdom made this true: I knew I’d sold the

good in me for time. I wonder, would It say the same? Having spent the bulk of years spoiling joy with

fear, I wished—almost—It would come at last. When quite by chance I spied It.

Unaware, It laughed beside a family of its own. How strange this felt, to barely recognize me in that way:

so content.
