Official press release:
Southern Lord is preparing to unleash a torrent of tumultuous filth, having signed Ohio-based Crypt Rot – formed by several current/former members of Homewrecker — for the release of their Embryonic Devils debut in early 2017. The album’s “Chapters Of Torment” has been issued for early streaming, as the band announces new live dates, including a set at The Power Of The Riff.
Having written and recorded five original songs within a months’ time, Crypt Rot captured these terrorizing, filth-laden death anthems on their Embryonic Devils debut, with each track led by a death-aura segue. For the recording sessions, the band enlisted Bill Korecky at the Mars Compound (Integrity, Ringworm, Homewrecker); the collaboration with Korecky lead to a well-polished, high-gain sound that grasps elements of many genres and crushes its listeners with its ferocity. Upon completion, the album was passed along, ultimately leading to the signing with Southern Lord.
“Chapters Of Torment” from Embryonic Devils is streaming early right here:
Embryonic Devils is finalized for February/March release; a final street date, pressing details, pre-orders, and more will be made available shortly.
Crypt Rot has confirmed several new tour dates for the weeks ahead, including shows in their hometown of Ashtabula, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh to take place through the rest of November. The band will also be performing in December at the Southern Lord showcase The Power of the Riff, the Los Angeles-based two-day event also including Neurosis, Wolves In The Throne Room, Nails, Pelican, Gatecreeper, Bloodclot, and more. Additional tour dates are to be announced through the months ahead.
