We've teamed up with YouTuber Jarrod Alonge to profile some of the bands set to feature on his forthcoming parody album. Today's band: LA deatchore parody Vermicide Violence!
To help fund Jarrod's parody album, head to his IndieGoGo page

You might recognise Jarrod Alonge. Over the last few years, the Tennessee-based YouTube star has been making a name for himself by parodying anything and everything about the alternative / metalcore / pop-punk / emo scenes. His Misheard Lyrics series is STILL making our sides hurt, his vocalist parodies allowed him to poke fun at every sub genre of the scene going, amd more recently, his announcement video for the Punk Goes Pop 6 compilation pretty much made our year. The dude's funny, and his latest project is his most ambitious yet.

Jarrod is currently running an IndieGoGo campaign to fund the production of a full parody album, featuring a bunch of the fictional bands he has played out in his videos. There's Sunrise Skate Kids (pop-punk easycore parody from Baltimore Maryland), Rectangles (progressive metal / djent parody from London, England), Canadian Softball (Tumblrcore parody from Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and, well, just look at this tracklisting:

If the album reaches its goal, it'll be made up of the following parody tracks:

Amidst The Grave's Demons from Columbus, Ohio

3 metalcore parodies, 1 melodic hardcore parody & 1 metalcore medley

Anyway, to give him a little boost in his funding, we've teamed up with Jarrod to run a series of Rock Sound Artist Profiles on some of the bands on the album. The latest instalment focuses on his LA-based deathcore parody, Vermicide Violence, which you can watch at the top of this page. If you missed our profile on his UK djent / progressive metal parody, Rectangles, or tumblrcore parody Canadian Softball, catch up below.

If you want to help Jarrod fund the album (and honestly, you do, because this will be nothing other than brilliant), then head over to his IndieGoGo page and stump up a few quid / dollars / Yen. The world needs this.

Meanwhile, keep your eyes out for the last vid in the series - we'll be focusing on $wagCh0de this weekend!. Oh, and subscribe to Jarrod's YouTube channel to see the videos first. And while you're at it, maybe subscribe to ours, too?
