Swedish death metal outfit GUTTER INSTINCT are excited to release their caustic, flesh-ripping debut full-length album "Age Of The Fanatics" to unsuspecting audiences worldwide on May 27 via PROSTHETIC RECORDS. The album develops a further blackened edge to their already haunting death metal -- as heard on their debut EP "The Insurrection" -- by forging their way through the influential mire of death metal innovators including Teitanblood, Bölzer, Grave Miasma, Black Witchery and Portal whilst still reeking of their classic buzzsaw Swedish sound.
"Age Of The Fanatics" is a study in cynical nihilism that lashes out against organized religion, corporate greed and political corruption leading to a hopeless state of depression and alienation, while closing the circle with a desire for isolation and total death worship, welcoming the apocalypse. In perfect correlation with GUTTER INSTINCT's depraved musical theme, renowned artist Dávid Glomba, aka Teitan Arts (Cult of Fire, Svartidauði, Inferno) aligned his harrowing aesthetic creating the artistic concept for the entire layout utilizing several large-scale illustrations.
"Age Of The Fanatics" will be available in a limited edition format with a total first pressing of 1,000 copies on CD and 300 copies on vinyl, including a four-page foldout featuring the detailed artwork. Pre-order's are now available directly via the PROSTHETIC RECORDS web shop at http://store.prostheticrecords.com/bands/gutter-instinct.
Digital pre-orders, which include an instant download of the title track, can be purchased from any of the below online retailers or streamed via Spotify or Google Play immediately.
