IMMORTAL BIRD released their critically-lauded Empress/Abscess full-length in 2015. Tracked by Pete Grossmann (Weekend Nachos, Harm’s Way, Dead In The Dirt) and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.), the record was released via a collaborative effort with Broken Limbs Recordings (vinyl/cassette) and the band’s own Manatee Rampage Recordings (CD/digital). Empress/Abscess is available now on vinyl and cassette HERE and on CD and digitally HERE.

“This shit makes me feel like I am about to get run over by a 1000 elephants. Just as catastrophe is about to strike, I am dragged down into some Lovecraftian depiction of Nyarlathotep’s chaos, and each note sounds like I am going to be stabbed by a spear. This is IMMORTAL BIRD.” – New Noise Magazine

“…fiercely aggressive yet surprisingly accessible…” – Blurt Online

“…there is some serious venom in this music…” – Bearded Gentleman

IMMORTAL BIRD songs burn directly into your ear and stay there…” – Metal Bandcamp

“…a densely layered meditation on anger and abuse, and an equally challenging collage of extreme music sub-genres.” – Invisible Oranges

“…a raging slab of sludgy blackened deathgrind that signals another step forward towards potential greatness in years to come.” – Teeth Of The Divine

“…thoroughly engrossing from start to finish, Empress/Abscess is an impressive display of genre-mashing that others simply dream of attaining…” – Dead Rhetoric
