In their endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage death metal, Memento Mori are extremely thrilled to announce a new signing: Altered Dead, from Canada.
With beginnings in 2011, Altered Dead are a two-piece contributing to the tradition of early death metal with a simple, therefore genuine, approach – no frills, filthy and raw – influenced by the likes of Autopsy, Death Breath, Grave, Asphyx, Darkthrone, Unleashed, Exhumed, and Carnage among others. Twisted and gross riffs rip alongside warring treads of percussion, with the accompaniment of scalded and bellowing dual vocals, and lyrical themes of physical and mental warfare, mutating human nature, imminent conflict and collapse. Currently residing in Esquimalt, on southern Vancouver Island, the outfit has had numerous live performances and released recordings on multiple formats, including their self-titled debut album on Cavernous Records, and is currently putting the finishing touches to the follow-up album.
Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their sophomore full-length album later this year. Further details to follow in the coming months. For more info, consult the links below.
