SPASTICUS and BOIA to release split mini-album thru CALIGARI, reveal first tracks


Today, Caligari Records announces May 5th as the international release date for Spasticating Exacution, a special split mini-album between Spasticus and Boia, on cassette tape format. The CD version will be co-released with Necrolatry Records.

Two upstarts in the thriving-yet-overlooked Italian death metal underground, Spasticus and Boia both here offer three exclusive tracks each, making for a 22-minute plunge into dankest Italian sewers. With a demo and EP already to their name and working with the likes of Rotted Life and Horror Pain Gore Death, among others, Spasticus are off to a swift start in their two years of existence. Not surprisingly, their sound is also swift, recalling turn-of-the-’90s grind-leaning death metal that places a premium on catchiness – and clear, crunchy production, making that catchiness hit that much harder.


Boia are looser by comparison, but equal their split-mates in sheer filthiness. From headbanging midtempos to scurrying blasts, twisting and turning but somehow still memorable, Boia surely recall classic Autopsy across their entry here and yet give it a grimy giallo aspect endemic to their Italian heritage. Naturally, Caligari released the band’s debut EP, Chivalry of Death, back in 2017, so this new split is a welcome return for them.

In the meantime, hear two brand-new tracks – Spasticus‘ “Crypt of Freaks” and Boia‘s “Coffin Claustrophobia” – HERE at Caligari‘s Bandcamp, where both formats can be preordered. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
