Stratagem is the forthcoming, seven-track skull-crusher from grindcore/death perpetrators, FULGORA. A name representing the female personification of lightning in Greek mythology, FULGORA features members of Pig Destroyer, Misery Index and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Together, their output is vicious, painful and sadistic.
Stratagem, set for imminent detonation courtesy of Housecore Records next month, is a sinister collection of limited vinyl singles and samples. In anticipation of its release, today Decibel Magazine spews forth Stratagem in its scathing entirety noting in a recent 8/10 review of the record, “With Adam and John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, Agoraphobic Nosebleed etc.) acting as the rhythmic backbone for guitarist/vocalist B.L. LaMew it’s not a surprise that direct lines exist between those bands. Not that we’re complaining. Adam’s drumming …unfathomably exudes space, breadth and surprising amounts of groove, while sounding like he’s hitting everything at once. His frenetic style works well with LaMew’s weaving of splashy discord into taut powerful riffs.”

And if you missed it, watch the visual companion to the track “Meridian,” which American Aftermath dubs a “three-minute barrage of vile, grind mayhem,” playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.
“FULGORA is cute” – Philip H. Anselmo
“…if Misery Index is a determined fanatic seething with the righteous rage of political revolution and Pig Destroyer is the lovelorn, desperate stalker of every woman’s nightmares, then FULGORA is a mad scientist who is going to make you the middle section of his human centipede. FULGORA’s music is unforgiving and furious, but it’s also executed with surgical precision.” — MetalSucks
