Australian death metal mavericks Vile Apparition premiere the new track “Repulsive Desire” at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. The track hails from the band’s striking debut album, Depravity Ordained, set for international release on January 21st via Memento Mori for the CD version (the vinyl and cassette versions will follow later on Blood Harvest). Hear Vile Apparition‘s “Repulsive Desire” in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Oozing out of Melbourne, Vile Apparition is a new project of Oliver Ballantyne (drums) and Jamie Colic (guitar, bass, vocals), both ex-members of the mighty Sewercide that left shortly after the recording of that band’s debut album, Immortalized in Suffering, in order to pursue other endeavors. Vile Apparition‘s self-released debut four-song demo, Atrocious Captivity, was picked up for a cassette release in early 2018 on Transylvanian Tapes, just in time for the band to fill their live lineup for their first run of shows starting January 2018.
Alas, Atrocious Captivity was but a brief taste of the nastiness to come, now in the form of Vile Apparition‘s full-length debut, Depravity Ordained. No lies in that title: this is fetid ‘n’ filthy death metal that puts a premium on the BLUDGEON! Old-school as it comes, of course, Vile Apparition‘s no-frills approach hearkens to the likes of Morpheus Descends, Ripping Corpse, and Deteriorot as well as the early works of Suffocation, Deeds of Flesh, and Cryptopsy. An astounding exhibition of ridiculous, malignant heaviness that’ll drill a hole in your skull and blow your brain cells to smithereens, the album will also include the preceding demo as bonus tracks.
