DEVOTION (Spain) signed to Memento Mori!!!
In our endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal, we´re extremely thrilled to announce a new signing: DEVOTION, from Spain.

DEVOTION was founded in the autumn of 2012 in some rehearsal rooms near Valencia, where some seasoned veterans of the local underground Death Metal scene were summoned by Julkarn (bass/vocals in Graveyard) to provide backing vocals on a track of their last opus to date. The recruited crew consisted of Sergio (Profundis Tenebrarum, Domains), David Agressor (Domains) and Vicent Riera (ex-Obscure / Nadir). When the recording sessions were over they decided to start up a new band, featuring Julkarn on guitar, David Agressor on bass, Sergio on drums and Vicent on vocal duties. After a number of lineup changes over the years, with Julkarn and Vicent remaining the core of the band, it´s the addition of David Garcia (ex-Obscure, Nadir) on drums, and Txito (Visceral Damage, ex-Voice Of Hate) on bass, that finally stabilize the band´s lineup to this day. In 2016, this quartet recorded their debut full-length album, titled Necrophiliac Cults, only released on CD format through the Spanish labels The Horror Dimension and Pathologically Explicit Recordings. For this recording they counted on the priceless participation of Igor Mesmer (Circumcelion) on keyboards, who unfortunately passed away shortly after the release. So far, Devotion have played several shows with bands such as Interment, Dead Congregation, Graveyard, Korgull the Exterminator, Mercyless, Putrid Offal, Primigenium, Dead, Schirenc plays Pungent Stench, Oniricous, Balmog, Himura, Convulsions and some others, and the band´s more than willing to continue spreading their Metal of Death anywhere possible.

The ilk of Death Metal that DEVOTION display is not affiliated to any particular school, let alone any current trend, for it´s all about uncompromising, organic, putrid, crushing and timeless Death Metal as we knew it in the early/mid 90´s, eminently mid-paced and drenched in a rotting atmosphere, with a strong penchant for memorability and catchiness, which is a trait that seems to be lost in most of today´s Death Metal. Fans of über-classic acts such as Asphyx, Bolt Thrower, Morgoth, Grave and Benediction, won´t be disappointed and might very well have a new name to add to their list of Death Metal bands to keep an eye -and an ear- out on.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their sophomore full-length album in the 2nd half of 2020. Further details to follow in the coming months.
