Impaler celebrates their 31st year of Shock Rock in 2014. They recently released their 12th album: "30 Years & Rising" last year.

Impaler is a Minnesota horror rock band from the Twin Cities. The band formed in the spring of 1983. Impaler has a theatrical show which features fake blood, cages, coffins, latex severed heads and a finale that includes a mock disemboweling of victims.

Impaler recorded demo tapes which caught the ear of Important Record Distributors and lead to the band being signed to the in-house labels IRD Records and Combat Records. They released two records with these labels, the first being the Rise Of The Mutants EP (1985)which caused much controversy with Tipper Gore and her P.M.R.C. organization. The record cover was also used as a prop in the cult horror movie Trick or Treat.

Formed in 1990 in Uptown Minneapolis. Tom Duclos & Chris Rowland -knowing in advance the name "Dumpster Juice" would never leave the memory or taste buds of anyone who had ever stumbled across the stuff - called upon drummer John Bigelow. After consulting with Duclos & Rowland over large quantities of alcohol the decision was made to hold an abrupt practice at Bigelows brother Kevin's Uptown apartment. Duclos, Rowland, John Bigelow & Kevin Bigelow became Dumpster Juice.

In June 1992 drummer Todd Petterson answered an ad Dumpster Juice left at the drum shop he just happened to be working at and within a week Todd learned the entire collection
