Hells Headbangers is proud to announce the signing of Philadelphia’s Spiter. The first fruit of this union shall be the band’s highly anticipated debut album, Bathe the Babe in Bats Blood, which will see release through the label during the first half of 2022.
Featuring members of labelmates Shitfucker and Devil Master, Spiter made their recorded debut during the spring of 2021 with the Draconian Death Curse EP. Although it’d be semi-accurate to see the EP as a sonic union between Shitfucker and Devil Master, already Spiter exerted their own identity, ripping forth with a raw-yet-anthemic blend of cult blackthrash, obscure hardcore punk, and even the wildest deathrock. Immediately, the short-length garnered the band a great deal of attention.
Now armed with Hells Headbangers, Spiter’s first full-length fully displays the band’s considerable powers. More ripping, more anthemic, wilder and weirder and laded with a crisp-yet-crushing production, Bathe the Babe in Bats Blood will put the name Spiter on the tongues of all who worship the dark and depraved. The album features 10 songs in 36 minutes, and will be available next year across all formats.
A statement from the band reads: “Much like Dracula leaving Transylvania hell-bent on conquest, Richard Spider (Daemon Bitch of Shitfucker) moved to Philadelphia with the sole intent of forming Spiter. Alongside fellow magician Bat (Darkest Prince of Devil Master), and Philly punk drummer Snake (Disjawn), who was magically uncovered in a destined meeting, the lineup was complete. Following the path forged by the infernal and immortal Dragon, creating the True Vampyric Metal Punk in the name of our God and Father, Satan!”
About the signing, they say, “Spiter has an unquenchable thirst for blood and glory. We are proud to announce that our debut album will be released by Hells Headbangers, the perfect label to put out this diabolical art that we have worked so hard to put forth. In the spirit of the mighty prince Dracula, and in the name of Satan! So Mote It Be! HAIL SATAN!”
