Revolver Magazine is now streaming “Darkness Infests” by Delaware death metal sickos SCORCHED, as the grotesque carnage of their Ecliptic Butchery LP rapidly approaches its release through 20 Buck Spin next week. The prime operating theater to broadcast the band’s uniquely gut-wrenching death metal was produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Tomb Mold, Pissgrave, Prurient), resulting in a seemingly impossibly heavy final product.
With their premiere of “Darkness Infests,” Revolver Magazine declares in part, “Once the riffs actually kick in to that classic death-metal d-beat, traditionalism is thrown out the window – chord progressions have more in common with hardcore or a number of other heavy genres, making their take on death metal much more fascinating than most. With Scorched, nothing is ever truly a pitch down the middle, and it’s these left turns and unexpected ideas that truly elevate this band from run of the mill to must hear.”
Tune in and stream the SCORCHED jam “Darkness Infests” at Revolver RIGHT HERE.
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 need to get SCORCHED.
Ecliptic Butchery will see 20 Buck Spin release on LP, CD, and digital on September 28th; the CD version containing a bonus disc which includes the entire Excavated For Evisceration release. Find digital preorders and stream “Mortuary Of Nightmares” and “Exhibits Of Torture” at Bandcamp HERE and find preorders for all physical versions and merch at the label shop HERE.
Following tour dates with Demilich and Blood Incantation earlier this year, SCORCHED recently assaulted audiences on the Poison Fumes Over North America MMXVIII across the East Coast. The tour saw them supporting Portuguese black/death sect and labelmates, The Ominous Circle, and included a set at the massive Migration Festival in Pittsburgh.
Watch for additional live announcements, audio samples, and more from SCORCHED in the weeks ahead.
SCORCHED returns with their second full-length experiment in barbarity, their first new full-length since 2016’s Echoes Of Dismemberment. Earlier in 2018, 20 Buck Spin collected the body of the band’s non-LP material onto the Excavated For Evisceration platter, reintroducing the band under the label’s banner. And yet, Excavated… served as mere appetizer to the main course of Ecliptic Butchery, a sadistic tale of deep space terror and desolate inhumanity smeared in blood red brutality. The eerie bizarre intro of “Blood Splatter Eclipse” sets the unearthly mood of a place far beyond. The band fades in with a savagely slow churn indicating a crossover to a domain where piercing shrieks of pain are to be indifferently lost in the lifeless expanse of the void. The hopeless punishment continues as “Exhibits Of Torture” are everywhere and the “Mortuary Of Nightmares” leads only deeper into the horror until finally a formless mass of “Dissected Humanity” is all that remains.
