HORRIFIC DEMISE – EXCRUCIATING EXTERMINATION
LABEL: COMATOSE MUSIC
RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 6th 2019
In the boundless kingdom of hell there are featureless corridors that run from sunrise to sunset, lined with doorways beyond counting. Each corridor is the same and each doorway identical, but those indistinguishable doors all open upon endlessly unique expressions of torment; myriad agonies beyond comprehension and eternal punishments to baffle the mind. Behind the obsidian gates lurk atrocities beyond the wildest dreams of evil men; the limitless exploration of the possibilities of pain, the numberless ways to dissect, reconstruct and tear apart… the eternal refinement of the art of excruciating extermination!
The debut album from Horrific Demise, Excruciating Extermination, has been long years in the making. The band has lived in the mind of guitarist/vocalist Matt Bishop since 2005, squirming and fermenting in the charnel pits of his subconscious, hunting and feeding in the labyrinth of his fantasies. While Horrific Demise grew in the darkness Matt made his name in the brutal death metal scene, spending ten years carving out the blood-soaked riffs for Lividity. But Horrific Demise could not be kept constrained forever… A meeting with guitarist Tony Tipton (Necrotic Disgorgement, Regurgitation) in 2013 breathed new life into the beast and the first Horrific Demise songs began to form. Over the next five years more darkly creative souls were drawn into the shadowy world of Horrific Demise: drummer Kyle Christman (Gorgasm, Sarcophagy) and bassist Phil Good (Necrotic Disgorgement, Created To Kill etc) adding their considerable talents. The search for the perfect voice to articulate the horrors of the band’s songs proved harder though, with several brutal vocalists trying out for the position, but somehow not capturing that perfect nightmarish vibe. Then, when Anthony Voight (Gorgasm, Sarcophagy) grabbed the mic and unleashed his inhuman roar the elite team was instantly complete. Now their work is done and the time has come for Excruciating Extermination to be unleashed! From the breathtaking initial attack of ‘Born From Brutality’ Excruciating Extermination carries you on a wild ride through Hell’s chambers of despair. Riff is piled upon monstrous riff and razor-wire solos slice, gleaming, through the crimson filth. This is not just another album of brutality; this is the stunning product of years of experience and musical aptitude, the realisation of dark dreams and long held ambition.
“If anyone can say they’ve done their Reign In Blood, this is mine. If I didn’t do one more album after this, I’d be cool with that.” – Matt Bishop on the Murder Metal Mayhem Podcast
