“MEPHITIC GRAVE make death metal at its most grimy and foul, but underneath all the murk, it’s clear that MEPHITIC GRAVE are a tight, precise band and they’ve got an arsenal of killer riffs.” – BrooklynVegan
BrooklynVegan is currently streaming Into The Atrium Of Inhuman Morbidity, the debut full-length from Hungarian death metal practitioners, MEPHITIC GRAVE, in its entirety. The premiere comes on the eve of the record’s official release Friday, May 7th via Carbonized Records.
Made of jagged riffs and grisly vocal incantations, MEPHITIC GRAVE’s sonic venom — influenced by Abhorrence, Funebre, and Autopsy, among others — runs deep discharging eight maniacally putrid odes of lo-fi grimness. Celebrating the works of H. P. Lovecraft, the band’s visual and lyrical concepts revolve around the philosophy of cosmicism which denies the presence of a god or any such ideas of divinity and upholds that humans are insignificant in the face of an incomprehensibly large cosmos.
Writes BrooklynVegan of the band’s ominous sound, “MEPHITIC GRAVE make death metal at its most grimy and foul, but underneath all the murk, it’s clear that MEPHITIC GRAVE are a tight, precise band and they’ve got an arsenal of killer riffs.”
Adds the band, “Beyond the familiar world of the insignificant, something unimaginable lurks. A metadimensional entity, the ultimate and utmost horror from aeons before matter. It feasts upon madness, sorrow, and fear of mankind. Every single teardrop, every single drop of blood shed through violence, materializes its earthly manifestation. Brick by brick, the palace of inhuman morbidity arises where the most ancient ones dwell. Stepping through its threshold, you are entering the atrium of unspeakable terror… this is where your monstrous journey begins. This is the atrium of inhuman morbidity…”

Into The Atrium Of Inhuman Morbidity, which was recorded, mixed, and mastered in the age of plague and pandemic lockdown by guitarist Knot in his basement workshop and includes cover art by Raul Gonzalez, will be released on limited cassette and digitally via Carbonized Records and on CD via My Dark Desires Records and Nihil Productions in Brazil.
MEPHITIC GRAVE was forged in 2018 as a duo between guitarist Zoli and drummer Balázs on drums, initially under the name Mothrot. Guitarist Knot and bassist/vocalist Ádám joined the following year. The first rehearsals exceeded expectations. Because Ádám already had ideas for lyrics, a concept of visuals arose within the band’s collective mind, leading them to eventually change their name to MEPHITIC GRAVE.
