COMMENTS

The Berzerker started off with only Luke Kenny as a one-man DJ/programmer, remixing songs by death metal bands such as Deicide and Morbid Angel.

The album 'Dissimulate' (2002) is the only full-length album the band has released that features an actual drummer instead of a drum machine.

Author's note: The Berzerker were once labelled as the world's most extreme band, due to the speed and brutality of their sound. Originally, the band wore hideous monster masks when performing live and for photoshoots, but ended up ditching these as apparently a large section of the underground couldn't see past the masks to really hear the music.
