HORRIFIED (UK) - Descent Into Putridity (2014) [news]
Label Memento Mori offers yet another sublime festering death metal band, this time from the catacombs of United Kingdom. Horrified has everything you wish your death metal possesses - slithering rot-infested tunes, coffin-breaking percussion and soul-vomiting vocals. This is old school death metal of the highest order, reminiscent of classic bands such as Death, Morgoth, Pestilence, Carcass, Asphyx, Autopsy, Gorguts, Cancer and Demolition Hammer. This band is triumphant in its expression, its glorification of eternal sickly tunes freshly unearthed from the wormy graves of the greats. Horrified is a band to watch out for. 'Descent Into Putridity' is only the band's debut full length, mastered at the famed Moontower Studios (Spain) by Javier Felez with the artwork provided by Vincent Helmkamp (Necromaniac zine) to capture the raw, dripping appeal of this fresh band.
