Blood Harvest Records (distributed & marketed by Regain Records) sets February 15th as the international release date for Crematory Stench‘s highly anticipated second EP, Grotesque Deformities, on cassette tape and 12″ vinyl formats.
Hailing from Southern California, Crematory Stench formed in 2014 and released their self-titled debut EP two years later. Then a trio, the band’s sound was a thrashing take on late ’80s death metal, largely nodding to early Death and Pestilence. Now expanded to a quartet and has been a prolific force on the live front, Crematory Stench‘s attack has but gotten nastier, gnarlier, and creepier. One could argue that with Grotesque Deformities, they have entered the very early ’90s, owing as they do to the gutsfuck sounds coming from Sweden then. Either way, it’s utterly hellish.
But, on evidence of this new second EP, Crematory Stench are just getting started and will undoubtedly get darker and more disgusting. Jump on their bandwagon now and witness their Grotesque Deformities! Hear the EP’s title track HERE at Blood Harvest‘s Bandcamp, where both formats can also be preordered.
