Selfmadegod Records is preparing to assault the masses with Crueza Ferina, the sixth studio full-length from Portugal’s brutal death/grind outfit, HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL. The album’s details have been issued alongside preorders and the lead single, “Êxodo Mortuoso” – which features a guest guitar solo by Bob Vigna of Immolation – through an exclusive premiere at Decibel Magazine.
HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL is unanimously considered to be one of the most unique and well known Portuguese extreme bands. Crueza Ferina delivers nineteen tracks of brutal death metal/grindcore at its best. Produced and engineered by João Ribeiro, Crueza Ferina’s drums were recorded at Rec’n’Roll Studios, the guitars and bass were recorded at 808 Studios, and the vocals were recorded at Estúdio 55. The album was mixed by João Ribeiro at Estúdio 55, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Obituary, Necrot, Torche, Ulcerate), with photography by Rui Pires as the cover artwork.
Bassist Z. Pedro writes with the “Êxodo Mortuoso” premiere, “This is the first song of the album and actually one of the first to be written. It is a perfect blend of what you will find in this new album: grinding brutality, groovy sequences, and punkish beats. It was also amazing to count with the contribution of our friend Bob Vigna from Immolation who played an astonishing solo on this track.”
With their exclusive premiere of “Êxodo Mortuoso,” Decibel declares the track, “a two-minute-plus ripper with a strong Celtic Frost influence, loads of D-beat aggression and a contrastingly melodic solo from Immolation’s Bob Vigna.”
