CHTHONIC DEITY was spawned by Erika Osterhout and Charlie Koryn when their respective bands — Scolex and Ascended Dead — played together in November 2013. Fueled by a common passion for the soul-swallowing sounds of bands like Nihilist, Sacrilege, and Stormcrow, the duo united in January 2014 to record a crude rehearsal, writing some songs on the spot. Osterhout played the demo for her bandmate in another project, Necrosic. Soon thereafter Koryn was recruited to play drums for Necrosic and CHTHONIC DEITY was put on hold.
In 2015, Necrosic recorded their Putrid Decimation MLP with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios in Oakland. During those sessions, Osterhout and Koryn recorded drums and bass for the songs they had originally written for CHTHONIC DEITY. Due to scheduling conflicts and commitments to their many other projects, those recordings remained unfinished for several years. Finally, in April 2018 the pair recorded guitars and vocals at Koryn’s own Underworld Studios in Portland, Oregon. A few months later they convened again in Denver, Colorado where they not only finished the record but enlisted Paul Riedl from Blood Incantation and Spectral Voice for live guitar duties and played their first show.
“…the trio wade through filth on new song ‘Echoes Of Death,’ which funnels death and a bit of doom through punk and adds some of that Stockholm stink for good measure. It’s a little cavernous, but the Swedish sway adds a bit more than most that rise from the murk. The crush of Dead Congregation, Cruciamentum, or Colorado contemporaries Spectral Voice come to mind in feel.” — Decibel on “Echoes Of Death”
“…a succinct release that wears its influences on its sleeve and has the requisite moxie to make it all work.” — Astral Noize UK
“The reek of magnificence and gloriously thundering death metal will certainly resonate through those who delve into this short but satisfying venture of depravity.” — Nattskog
