Official press release:
In just two short days, San Jose-based death/doom unit Mortuous — featuring within its ranks past and present members of Exhumed, Repulsion, Necrot, and Atrament, among others — will unleash the decaying fruits of its Through Wilderness debut upon the masses.
Drummer Chad Gailey says:
“We travel to the depths of hell and Through Wilderness to drop this album from our rotten souls. You’ve never heard anything as fetid and rancid as these riffs which came from a past life. Death metal? We’re already dead!”
