Known for their "high-octane rush of deep, grinding riffs, piston-driven drumming, and thundering bass" (No Clean Singing), Vancouver's WORMWITCH is excited to announce the details of their upcoming debut release via PROSTHETIC RECORDS.
Recorded in late 2016 with producer Curtis Buckoll (Archspire) at Rain City Recorders, "Strike Mortal Soil" integrates equal parts black metal savagery and rock 'n' roll defiance showcasing the band's darkest, heaviest and primitive sound. Scheduled for worldwide release on May 12, 2017, via Prosthetic Records, "Strike Mortal Soil" will be available for pre-order on limited-edition vinyl on lightning bolt blue with black specks as well as on CD and digitally on March 30.
Thematically, "Strike Mortal Soil" is about being alive and what that means in today's society. The band elaborated, "We live in a society both obsessed with and terrified of death. We exist in a world constantly seeking immortality through fame or Gods. "Strike Mortal Soil" means to live with a furious passion. It is to be able to enter one's grave like lightning, in rejection of eternity. It enforces the message that life has worth, not from your nationality, your land, your God or your flesh, but what you do with yourself."
"STRIKE MORTAL SOIL" TRACK LISTING
1. As Above
2. Howling From the Grave
4. Even the Sun Will Die
5. Relentless Death

4/01/2017 The Hi Hat - Los Angeles, CA4/02/2017 The Hi Hat - Los Angeles, CATOXIC HOLOCAUST released their most recent full-length release, Chemistry of Consciousness, via Relapse in 2013. Crowned, "...one of thrash's most exciting modern bands," by Loudwire, "...the aural equivalent of a cobra with a chest tattoo of a double helix and syringes for fangs getting ready to strike amidst two flesh-like walls of anxious, bloodshot eyes...," by MetalSucks," and a, "bottled up riot distilled into musical form," by Metal Injection," Chemistry Of Consciousness continues to dehydrate the masses with a platter that pays tribute to the likes of Anti-Cimex, Warfare, Infernal Majesty, GBH, Discharge, Autopsy and Chaos UK without replicating them.Chemistry Of Consciousness is available for streaming and download via the band's Bandcamp page HERE. For physical orders go HERE. Additionally, the band's Joel Grind issue a new split 10" alongside fuzz guitar pioneer Davie Allan last year which can be streamed and/or downloaded at THIS LOCATION.GATECREEPER will be touring in support of their Sonoran Depravation full-length released via Relapse Records last October. Produced by Ryan Bram at Homewrecker Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, Black Breath) at God City Studios, the record tears and chugs through more than thirty minutes of crusty, doom-soaked death metal at its most infectious and uncompromising with a massive sound that calls to mind the classic Swedish buzz-saw attack of Dismember and Grave mixed with the impeccable groove of Obituary and Bolt Thrower.Pitchfork notes of the offering, "Arizona's GATECREEPER stand out not by aping one particular style of death metal, but by acting as a polyglot of various classic bands. Sonoran Depravation is their unwavering debut LP." Cvlt Nation calls Sonoran Depravation, "a death metal masterwork that will begin carving GATECREEPER a place into the same pantheon from which they draw influence: bear witness and headbang with awe," while Noisey writes, "the nine-song album reflects the prickly intermingling of genres and cities, raw with emotion and a pervasive ferocity. Unlike bands like Power Trip or Xibalba, whose sound clearly melds thrash and punk, GATECREEPER's approach on tracks like 'Sterilizing' or highlight 'Stronghold' emphasize death metal as a primary style."
