SLIMELORD: UK-Based Hallucinogenic Death/Doom Act Signs With 20 Buck Spin For March 8th Release Of Debut LP, Chytridiomycosis Relinquished; “The Beckoning Bell” Streaming + Preorders Posted

SLIMELORD, England’s most peculiar death metal oddity, has assembled from the subterranean depths a savage yet hallucinatory tale on their debut full-length Chytridiomycosis Relinquished. The quest log intertwines with the more extraordinary elements of geology, ancient myths, world history, environmentalism, and fantasy. A concept as deftly detailed and complexly bizarre as the music itself, SLIMELORD emerges from the shallows with a perplexingly delightful weirdo ripper of supernatural horrors and idiosyncratic dirge.

Following on from several lauded EP releases of swampy death and doom strangeness, on Chytridiomycosis Relinquished, SLIMELORD is at their most blisteringly death metal yet in terms of speed and heaviness. The humongous riffing coupled with their established pedigree for summoning dreamy, zoned-out repetitions and improvised unorthodoxy is built upon layered effects pedals and even field recordings to add an atmosphere of extreme density and eccentric mythos creation, resulting in total immersion within the murk.

Recorded by Adam Rogers (PitLab) at Millwright Studio in Boom, Leeds, Chytridiomycosis Relinquished was re-amped, mixed, and mastered by Damian Herring (Horrendous) at Subterranean Watchtower and completed with cover art by Brad Moore (Tomb Mold, Worm), photography by Bradley Lightfoot, and layouts by Chimere Noire. With Moore’s cinematic and uncanny visual landscapes bringing SLIMELORD’s surreal saga into vivid reality, and additional story layers beyond the lyrics included in the release, Chytridiomycosis Relinquished presents an enormous progression of musical composition and production value.

A fully formed operatic fantasy adventure in all respects, SLIMELORD’s comprehensive musical and aesthetic vision penetrates like a fungus into the substrate upon which it feeds. Fans of Disembowlment, Immolation, Gojira, Morbid Angel, Voidceremony, Tomb Mold, Edge Of Sanity, and Morbus Chron should not ignore SLIMELORD’s Chytridiomycosis Relinquished.

The band collectively offers with the album’s lead single, “‘The Beckoning Bell’ is a boiling, churning stew made up of all the elements that become SLIMELORD. From the opening grooves emerging from recordings of squawking ducks, through the blistering lava tubes and to the ethereal dream sequence of the outro… Take a trip into our subterranea with Chytridiomycosis Relinquished and uncover the fantastical lore within!”

The first disturbing preview of SLIMELORD’s Chytridiomycosis Relinquished, its opening track “The Beckoning Bell,” is now streaming everywhere including YouTube HERE and Bandcamp HERE.

Chytridiomycosis Relinquished is confirmed for release on LP, CD, MC, and digital formats March 8th. Preorders are live at the 20 Buck Spin webshop HERE and Bandcamp HERE.
