Today we are delighted to announce that our partners at Comatose Music have added Houston, Texas heavyweights Architectural Genocide to their already unfathomably heavy roster. The band caught the ear of the world’s premier brutal death metal label with their grotesquely brutal 2018 demo, featuring the gut-churning tracks ‘Force Fed Fecal Fodder‘ and ‘Void Of Atrocity‘. Work is well underway on Architectural Genocide’s full length debut album and you can expect the skullcrushing assault to be launched by Comatose in early 2020.
Taking a break from the studio, the band will be jumping on the Houston date of the Bloodletting North America XIII tour, featuring Disentomb and Visceral Disgorgeon October 8th. Then on November 16th, they’ll be joining Primordius and Demonseedfor a night of destruction in Arlington.
To get just a hint of the utter annihilation that Architectural Genocide will be bringing your way with Comatose Music in 2020, you can check out their 2018 demo right here Visit Architectural Genocide on Facebook Visit Comatose Music here
No fewer than four of our recent campaigns are now drawing to a close, offering the very best in thrash metal, death metal and grindcore, so we wanted to offer you a last chance to check them out, if you haven’t already done so. First of all we have Solitary‘s celebratory XXV EP…
A twenty fifth anniversary is a milestone that cannot be left unnoticed or allowed to pass uncelebrated, so Solitary hit the studio to re-record three classicsongs from their illustrious back catalogue – ‘Requiem‘, ‘Within Temptation‘ and ‘Keep Your Enemies Closer’. As well as injecting these much loved monsters with a fresh venom and energy, the band captured two songs from a London show, at the Camden Underworld with Darkane.
“… a release that any self respecting thrash fan needs in their collection. …” 9/10 – PHOENIX RISING

The next album that will soon be leaving us is the sickening, violent slab of death metal torture that is Exigit Sincerae Devotionis Affectus, from Comatose Music artists Strappado…
Born from a ghoulish fascination with the inhumanity of man, Strappado celebrate the unconscionable, the brutality that lurks beyond the shadowy borders of the imagination. ‘The Rack‘, ‘Death By Sawing‘, ‘Dislocated By The Rope‘; each Frankenstein’s monster of riffs and blast beats, sewn together with vicious precision, is a glorification of the most base depravity.
“… an amazing fucking release…” 9.5/10 – SICK REVIEWS

Also bidding us a fond farewell this week is the gargantuan death metal masterpiece from another Comatose band, Horrific Demise, Excruciating Extermination…
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 you love underground death metal, you NEED a copy of this record.” 10/10 – BETWEEN THE LINES MEDIA

Finally we’d like to remind you of the wild death metal grindcore hybrid that is Grevia‘s debut EP for Lethal Scissor Records – Misophonic…
Grevia’s Misophonic represents one of the most potent extreme music releases this year. Featuring guest drumming from Davide Billia(Beheaded, Antropofagus, Hour Of Penanceetc) these incendiary songs sweep across your senses like a firestorm.
” Potential like this doesn’t come around that often…” 8/10 – METAL TEMPLE

Rebranded to reflect the increasingly disturbing and disgustingly heavy nature of their music, Cranial Bleeding have now morphed into the twisted Purulent Necrosis – and Purulent Necrosis are ready to unveil their terrifying debut album, Cadaverized Humanity, an unrelenting assault on the senses.
The standard terms for defining extreme music are simply inadequate to describe the horrific onslaught of tracks like ‘Throne Of Carnage’. These blood-chilling outbursts of inhuman depravity go beyond the normal barriers of acceptability even for brutal death metal. Purulent Necrosis are beyond ‘heavy’, beyond ‘extreme’ and Cadaverized Humanity attacks like a hammer-wielding lunatic from start to finish. The rusted riffs that form the warped exoskeleton of ‘Calculated Acts Of Retribution’ must surely be the product of warped minds and the bestial vocals of Justin Downs are barely recognisable as human. This is not a listening experience; it’s a test of your endurance and your sanity, a trip into the abyss, the foulest recesses of human depravity.
Line-up: Justin Downs – Vocals Blake Scott – Guitars Steve Green – Guitars Matthew Green – Drums Jason Keating – Bass
Like handing knives to monstrous predators, Comatose Music have recklessly agreed to release Purulent Necrosis’ insane violence into the world on November 1st. From that date Cadaverized Humanity will be lurking in the cellars and alleyways of your town, waiting hungrily for blood. Indiscriminate killing on an unprecedented scale is sure to follow.

HORRIFIC DEMISE RETURN TO SLAM WORLDWIDE WITH ‘APOGEE OF BLASPHEMY’!
Horrific Demise feature members and ex-members of Lividity, Gorgasm, Sarcophagy, Necrotic Disgorgement and more and their debut album Excruciating Extermination was years in the making. The album will be released on September 6th through Comatose Music and already the press are starting to recognise that this is one very special album..."...like all the last Deicide albums but with balls..." - ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE"...this is perfect, I can't fault it..." - THE METAL WANDERLUST"...complete chaos is unleashed..." - THE MEDIAN MAN
Therewill be no resisting the overwhelming power of Horrific Demise. The beast has well and truly come of age and it's ready to start killing - until only it remains. This album, this band, this label - they are undeniable. Nothing will stand in their way. Prepare to be exterminated!
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
With the power of Comatose Music behind them Horrific Demise will spread their tales of Excruciating Extermination to every corner of the metal world. This album, this band, this label – they are all undeniable. Nothing will stand in their way. Prepare to be exterminated!
