Italy’s BEDSORE and Japan’s MORTAL INCARNATION, two bands separated by continents, come together for a split release packed with fresh and intense death metal energy, with each band contributing a single epic length track.
BEDSORE seamlessly melds astral black metal, technical death metal, and ‘70s progressive straight out of a planetarium laser show. Witness the rapid evolution of a band with a seemingly infinite trajectory of creativity and imagination. On the sixteen-plus-minute journey of “Shapes From Beyond The Veil Of Stars And Space,” BEDSORE continuously twists into unconventional new directions of cinematic cosmic vastness.
With the drums recorded by Guglielmo Nodari at the Snakes Studio, the instruments and vocals recorded by Jacopo Gianmaria Pepe and Stefano Allegretti, and the material re-amped, mixed, and mastered by Damian Herring at Subterranean Watchtower Studios, “Shapes From Beyond The Veil Of Stars And Space” also features a guest guitar solo by Garrett Johnson of labelmates VoidCeremony.
On the B-side, Japan’s MORTAL INCARNATION presents “In The Perpetual Torment Of Recurrence,” a massive fourteen-plus-minute track of bludgeoning inventive death metal with shards of doom despondency that rivals and sits equally beside the top bands of the style worldwide. Simply one of the best pure death metal tracks that will be heard in 2022.
With the drums and bass recorded by Tankanori Kubo at the Studio Chaosk, and the guitars and vocals recorded by Shimpei Miura and Kaito Wada, “In The Perpetual Torment Of Recurrence” was re-amped, mixed, and mastered by Damian Herring at Subterranean Watchtower Studios.
This international split between two fast-rising and innovative death metal bands was completed with artwork by Manuel Tinnemans (Misthyrming, Necros Christos, Wrathprayer), and is a must-hear for fans of Oranssi Pazuzu, Abigor, Morbus Chron, Sweven, Horrendous, Spectral Voice, Disembowelment, and Corrupted.
