Release date : 4th September 2020
Split between two Japanese gory grinding acts out on Obliteration Records!
FESTERDECAY, Fukuoka based CARCASS early style orientated putrid gory act, proudly presents their newest material, written in the best canons of good old days grind. This is their first debut release under the wing of label, and you can taste all the pus, accumulated for the years of activity, has thick and rancid palette of flavors.
With raw yet clear as pathologist's report sound, they present 5 tracks, filled with gorgeous riffs, blasting drums and filthy as suppurative wound vocals.
Tokyo based CRASH SYNDROM closing this split, yet another time presenting a new appearance for what medical grind is. Heavily influenced by CARCASS’es "Necroticism...", they regurgitate 3 tracks of grinding death metal with touches of progressive composition freedom. "More CARCASS than CARCASS themselves nowadays!" is the first reaction we hear. This is their most mature and deep work so far, both content wise and sound production wise, with surrealistic medical lyrics and cold atmosphere of cooling down, shifting in tension cadaver...
Encyclopedia Of Putrefactive Anomalies, clocking in more than 20 minutes total, is a guide for old school grind,processed through the perception of younger generation musicians. Absoulte must for lovers of Haemorrhage, General Surgery, Carcass, Pathologist and so on... They keep the old vibe alive!
