20 Buck Spin announces the impending debut LP from New Mexico-based death metal entity SUPERSTITION, confirming The Anatomy Of Unholy Transformation for worldwide release on June 21st. With the album’s details and cover art, the label has issued an early single, “Highly Attuned Beasts Of The Dark.” Additionally, SUPERSTITION has announced July tour dates on both the West and East Coasts, the latter with labelmates Tomb Mold.
Drawn from the alluvial darkness and consecrated in the materia prima of unconscious fear, SUPERSTITION has come forth as the archon of illimitable lunacy, the purveyor of spiritual violence and the demiurge of psychic malfeasance.
As the namesake suggests, SUPERSTITION has risen from the perennial mire like a psychological parasite, intent on invoking the ageless horrors of the collective unconscious and born to serve as a reminder that mankind still has much to fear of the dark. Armed with the sonic weaponry of the traditional pan-American sound, the band bears the torch of its bloodsoaked predecessors and ushers in a new era of venomous death metal.
Following the magnetic horror of The Surging Throng Of Evil’s Might demo, SUPERSTITION is poised to unleash the next chapter of parademonic madness through the aural codex aptly named, The Anatomy Of Unholy Transformation. Presenting six sonorous incantations of funereal obsession, the band has perfected the violent belligerence promised through its rudimentary efforts. Driving the burning sword of damnation with searing speed, maniacal riffs and bellicose leads, The Anatomy Of Unholy Transformation delivers the inceptive sounds that originally marked death metal’s ascendancy as the ultimate force of destruction; a standout and differing sound from the current crop of new death metal bands.

Transmitted by the malign consortium of 20 Buck Spin, The Anatomy Of Unholy Transformation will be resurrected on June 21st, 2019, manifested in LP, CD, cassette, and digital forms. Watch for preorders and additional audio samples to be issued shortly.
