CRYPT ROT To Release Embryonic Devils Through Southern Lord On April 28th
Sinister new Southern Lord signing Crypt Rot prepares for the release of their debut LP, Embryonic Devils, confirmed for release on April 28th.
Still in their embryonic stages, Crypt Rot was conceived in Ashtabula, Ohio in 2016, however members of the group have been cutting their teeth in various other bands for some time. Crypt Rot was formed by lead vocalist/guitarist Ryan Sposito (former frontman of Homewrecker), drummer/vocalist Matt Izzi (Homewrecker, Scorched), guitarist Joe Dedomenic, bassist Steve Cray (formerly of Homewrecker) and since replaced by Aaron Schwarz, with additional vocals from Allie Dioneff.
Crypt Rot summons an ominous atmosphere on their debut, as they segue between pummeling blackened death metal fury, packed with caustic vocals, drop-tuned aggression, relentless riffs, spine-tingling harmonies, and creepy sounds from the darkest catacombs. Lyrically they probe matters of life, death, politics, (anti) religion, suffering, and mental health, and take influence from the masters including; Carnage, Dismember, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Repugnant, Deicide, and Dissection.
For the recording sessions of Embryonic Devils, the band enlisted Bill Korecky at the Mars Compound (Integrity, Ringworm, Homewrecker); the collaboration resulted in five brand new death anthems, refined with a high-gain sound that will grab listeners with its ferocity.
