CRYPT ROT – To Release “Embryonic Devils” Through Southern Lord On April 28th

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on March 6, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Sinister new Southern Lord signing CRYPT ROT prepares for the release of their debut LP, Embryonic Devils, confirmed for release on April 28th.

Still in their embryonic stages, CRYPT ROT was conceived in Ashtabula, Ohio in 2016, however members of the group have been cutting their teeth in various other bands for some time. CRYPT ROT was formed by lead vocalist/guitarist Ryan Sposito (former frontman of Homewrecker), drummer/vocalist Matt Izzi (Homewrecker, Scorched), guitarist Joe Dedomenic, bassist Steve Cray (formerly of Homewrecker) and since replaced by Aaron Schwarz, with additional vocals from Allie Dioneff.

CRYPT ROT summons an ominous atmosphere on their debut, as they segue between pummeling blackened death metal fury, packed with caustic vocals, drop-tuned aggression, relentless riffs, spine-tingling harmonies, and creepy sounds from the darkest catacombs. Lyrically they probe matters of life, death, politics, (anti) religion, suffering, and mental health, and take influence from the masters including; Carnage, Dismember, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Repugnant, Deicide, and Dissection.

For the recording sessions of Embryonic Devils, the band enlisted Bill Korecky at the Mars Compound (Integrity, Ringworm, Homewrecker); the collaboration resulted in five brand new death anthems, refined with a high-gain sound that will grab listeners with its ferocity.

Sample the tumultuous filth of “Chapters Of Torment” RIGHT HERE.

Embryonic Devils shall be released via Southern Lord in LP and digital formats on 28th April, preorder information shall be released soon. The band recently entered the studio again resulting in three new songs, which will later appear on a split release with Scorched.

This is just the beginning, let the Rot Begin… welcome to the Crypt.

Embryonic Devils Track List:
1. Segue 1
2. Chapters Of Torment
3. Segue 2
4. Scaphist Waste
5. Segue 3
6. Coffin Birth…Post Mortal Fetal Extrusion
7. Segue 4
8. Pit Of Morbidity
9. Segue 5
10. Internal Organ Feast

Inverse Records - Press Release - promo banner - 2016 - #MO99ILMF3

Finnish Melodic Extreme Metal quintet A Lie Nation will release their second EP, called “Begin Hate”, April 5th 2017 via Inverse Records.

“Begin Hate” is rough, yet melodic, Extreme Metal with an original touch that fuses elements from Black and Death Metal with rock-like straightforwardness. The four song EP is a study of negative mindscapes of the human species and it spans from extreme aggression to apocalyptic and self-destructive atmospheres. Heavy hitting rhythms and razor sharp vocals are balanced out with intriguing melodies and smoothly grinding bass lines. “Begin Hate” does not bow to anyone or anything, but is sure to leave a mark with its energetic destructiveness.

“Begin Hate” was recorded during the year 2016 at Oulu, Finland. Recording, mixing, mastering and the cover art has been fully produced within A Lie Nation.

An official video “Shooting The Messenger” is available here:
