Southern Lord have just announced the signing Ohio-based band Crypt Rot for the release of their debut release, “Embryonic Devils” in early 2017. The group, formed by several current/former members of Homewrecker share have shared an early stream of album track “Chapters Of Torment” and also announced new live dates in the USA, including a set at The Power Of The Riff.
For the recording sessions of “Embryonic Devils”, the band enlisted Bill Korecky at the Mars Compound (Integrity, Ringworm, Homewrecker), the sample track reveals a ferocious high-gain sound which demands attention.
Beginning in Ashtabula, Ohio in early 2016, 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 additional vocals from Allie Dioneff. The band is influenced by old-school Swedish death metal, punk, and hardcore, including bands like Carnage, Dismember, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Repugnant, Deicide, Dissection, and more. We are promised drop tuned aggression, full of tempo changes, scorching harmonies and relentless riffs, lyrically conveying a creative focus on life and death, politics, anti-religion, suffering, and personal insanity, with each song displaying a sense of destruction in a unique, and brutal form.
Sounds pretty epic and I shall share the album on podcasts when it arrives.
