Moronic – Recipes for Disaster

You all know how Germans love to play heavy, simple and aggressive, right? That country gave rise to so many great death, thrash and grind bands.

This band can`t be tagged as some classic or old school Grind or Powerviolence. These dudes love to experiment, that’s why it’s hard to set them in usual music category. So what is Derbe Lebowski and why are they seem unusual to me… Let me start from the history note. This weird name first appeared in Germany somewhere in 2011. Everything started pretty usual, some friends came together with a strong desire to play something heavy. 1 Year later they released their first work “Remove Your Mask”.
