Delaware death metal crew SCORCHED has announced several bouts of upcoming tour dates this winter and spring in support of their bludgeoning Ecliptic Butchery LP, which saw release in September through 20 Buck Spin.
First up, SCORCHED will hit the Southeast with support from their allies in Ohio-based Mutilatred, with shows in Greensboro, Columbia, and Memphis February 22nd through 24th. A month later, SCORCHED goes back out on a more widespread campaign supporting their Bay Area labelmates Ulthar from March 22nd through April 3rd, with shows spanning from the West Coast through the Southwest and Southeast states. Watch for additional tour dates to be announced in the months ahead.
The new SCORCHED LP Ecliptic Butchery has continued to receive widespread critical acclaim since its early fall release, including numerous near-perfect reviews and inclusions on many best-of/year-end lists. The pulverizing album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Tomb Mold, Pissgrave, Prurient), resulting in a seemingly impossibly heavy final product. Completed with cover art by Misanthropic Illustrations, Ecliptic Butchery is simply one of the most malicious onslaughts of 2018. Fans of Vastum, Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Extremity, Witch Vomit, Necrot, Exhumed, and Homewrecker should not miss out.
Ecliptic Butchery is available through 20 Buck Spin on LP, CD, and digital formats, the CD version paired with a bonus disc which includes the entire Excavated For Evisceration album. Place orders at the label shop HERE and at Bandcamp where the record is streaming HERE.

“The East Coast old-school death metal crew exhibit the highest degree of savagery of their career so far; primitive riffs, dive bombs, tremolo riffs, and cavernous vocals mix together across the nine tracks… Ecliptic Butchery stands as one of the year’s finest death metal albums….” – Decibel Magazine
“Most of the members of Delaware’s SCORCHED weren’t even in elementary school when old-school death metal was known as just plain ‘death metal,’ but their 2018 album Ecliptic Butchery recaptures the sound and fury of old perfectly.” – Noisey
“From the precision of the tremolo picking, to the crushing blast beats, the whining guitars and terrifying vocals, this is one of the most multi-faceted death metal records to ever be released. 9/10” – Hellbound
“It all adds up to a much more memorable, crushing, fun, and absolutely ignorant listen than anything the band have put out to date. If you fancy yourself a fan of any type of death metal, but especially the newer wave that has dominated the past few years, SCORCHED have fully arrived to lay claim to their place among death metal’s new elites…and your heart. 4/5″ – Toilet Ov Hell
“Seeing these guys live a year ago was a completely engrossing experience. Hearing this new album confirms what I theorized then, that SCORCHED is capable of becoming the new face of American death metal. This entire album is exceptional… 5/5″ – Mosh Pit Nation
“The end result is a pulverizing yet gloom-coated death metal record competing for one of the best releases of 2018. 9/10” – Metal Forces
