Last fall we had the pleasure of premiering Interitus, the new album by the Brazilian band Escarnium, in advance of its joint release by Redefining Darkness Records in North America and Testimony Records in Europe. And now both labels are bringing out a limited vinyl edition of the record. To pave the way for that, we’re helping premiere a new lyric video for a song off the album named “While the Furnace Burns“.

As vibrantly and viciously manifested on Interitus, Escarnium have developed a truly impressive, sure-handed mastery of evil, primal, old school death metal. Continue reading »

Escarnium-Interitus

 

Last fall we had the pleasure of premiering Godless Shrine of Decay, an album-length compilation of music by the Brazilian death metal band Escarnium. Godless Shrine was released by Redefining Darkness Records to pave the way for the band’s new album, which will be released on October 14 by the same label in North America and by Testimony Records in Europe. The name of the new album is Interitus, and today we’re able to bring you a full stream of the album on the eve of its release.

Since the band’s founding in 2008, they’ve released one previous full-length, 2012’s Excruciating Existence, and a handful of shorter offerings. As a retrospective, Godless Shrine of Decay documented the maturation of this band over time into a group of ravagers with a knack for writing and executing songs of soul-plundering savagery and relentless ruthlessness. As evidenced by this new album, they have developed a truly impressive, sure-handed mastery of evil, primal, old school death metal. Continue reading »

ESCARNIUM-Godless Shrine Of Decay

 

Earlier this year the Brazilian death metal band Escarnium signed a North American deal with Redefining Darkness Records, looking ahead to the release of their next album. To pave the way for that, Redefining Darkness is releasing Godless Shrine of Decay, a compilation that includes selected cuts (all of them remastered) from the band’s previous releases as well as one new song, and we’ve got a full stream of this godless shrine for you today. It seems only fair to issue a warning in advance: Prepare for a ravaging onslaught of hellish old school death metal.

The album hits the ground running (“marauding” would actually be a better word) with “Radioactive Doom” from the band’s 2014 single Genocide Ritual and then moves to “Human Waste”, the previously unreleased track that’s included on the album. From there you get the title track from that 2014 single, seven decimating cuts from the band’s 2012 debut album Excruciating Existence, five tracks from the 2011 EP Rex Verminorum, and the title song from their first demo, 2009’s Covered In Decadence.
