As Selfmadegod Records prepares to release the fourth studio full-length from Swedish death metal outfit THOSE WHO BRING THE TORTURE, American Aftermath is now streaming Piling Up in its devastating entirety.
With ten direct, sinister death metal hymns that will categorically satisfy fans of Hypocrisy, Malevolent Creation and Grave, Piling Up proves to be the fiercest material from THOSE WHO BRING THE TORTURE to date. The record was recorded at The Rotpit and Studio Roadkill in late 2013, mixed and mastered by Brynjar Helgetun at Studio Brainjar, and bears cover artwork by Roberto Toderico (Sinister, Asphyx). Alongside an exclusive early stream of the album, American Aftermath states, “This is the death metal that other death metal has nightmares about,” continuing, “Piling Up is a definitive runner for death metal album of the year and you all need to stop whatever meaningless task you are up to this fine morning and get a face full of bastard-smashing death.”
Stream all of Piling Up now at THIS LOCATION.
Preorders for Piling Up are now available. North American orders can be placed via Earsplit Distro HERE; CDs will ship out ahead of the stateside August 19th street date. Piling Up will see release in Europe this Friday, August 1st; orders can be placed HERE.
