“Vile Yolk Of Contagion” is the vile new track from Seattle death metal fiends CEREBRAL ROT, the song pulled from the band’s impending second LP, Excretion Of Mortality. The song is now playing alongside preorders for the album, which is nearing release late this month via 20 Buck Spin.

Ascending from the odious decay of their first LP, CEREBRAL ROT passes from animal to human contagion with a new more purulent virus on Excretion Of Mortality. A return of such festering decrepitude and anatomical canker as befits the true adherents of vile and sick underground death metal.

Soaked in the swamp of radioactive sewage, CEREBRAL ROT‘s tumor-like growth on Excretion Of Mortality bludgeons with a hammering heaviness that few can manage or survive. A methodical focus on attaining maximum barbarism through every aspect of the production, from the meaty, dripping guitars to the immense rhythm section and Schwab’s nuclear travesty vocals, to the deceptively straightforward bludgeoning of the songs, exposes a scalpel-like cutting precision to this seemingly base display of horrid malevolence.

Before leaving Jack Endino’s Soundhouse Studio in Seattle permanently uninhabitable for the next 500 hundred years, the pungent bubbling mess they set to tape on Excretion Of Mortality lingers there, and everywhere, like a malodorous putrescence at the crossroads of the excremental and the existential.

Let CEREBRAL ROT’s “Vile Yolk of Contagion” ooze forth via YouTube HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Recorded by Detto at Soundhouse Studio, mixed by Detto at Sentinel Recording Studio, and mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio, Excretion Of Mortality was completed with artwork by Karina Monzon, photography by Erin Severson, and design by Dan Fried. A must-hear for fans of Fetid, Undergang, Cenotaph, Caustic Wound, Bolt Thrower, Cianide, Impetigo, and Autopsy.

20 Buck Spin will issue Excretion Of Mortality on CD, cassette, and digital formats on June 25th, with the vinyl edition, which includes a huge 24″ x 36″ poster, to follow on July 30th. Find preorders at the label webshop HERE and Bancamp HERE.
