CARDIAC ARREST - A Parallel Dimension of Despair CD [MEMENTO-LXX]
The highly anticipated 6th album from these U.S. Death Metal stalwarts. Formed in the bowels of Chicago way back in 1997, Cardiac Arrest should need no introduction to the ardent fans of rotting and blood-drenched Death Metal, for these grave-dwellers have been carving out aural nightmares of perishing and grime for decades now. Consisting of four individuals with an unearthly interest in all that´s absurd, morbid, gruesome and unhealthy, the band´s been consistently getting heavier and more vile with every album they spat out via previous labels such as Razorback Recordings and Ibex Moon Records, honoring timeless Death Metal of the most grinding and putrid ilk with genuineness and a no-nonsense approach, yet adding enough personality to be in a forever-rotting league of their very own. Now, half a dozen albums deep into their 20-plus-year career, Cardiac Arrest have delivered a masterstroke that bands a third of their age would be jealous to release: "A Parallel Dimension of Despair". Time moves on and tastes change, but these U.S. diehards stay true to the iron-clad ethos of genuine Death Metal. Put on "A Parallel Dimension of Despair" and you´d be forgiven for thinking the year was 1991, so authentic and ingrained is that ethos. For those were days of true songwriting, and Cardiac Arrest have never forgotten that. Not for them the speed-for-its-own-sake stakes nor unnecessary gore that doesn´t serve the heart of horror; instead, the quartet churn forth streamlined yet shit-heavy death that puts emphasis on hooks and groove as well as well-timed bouts of speed. References to be made include Grave, Master, Benediction, Obituary, Cianide, Malevolent Creation and of course the Floridian masters Death and Massacre, but here delivered with a class and clarity that´s entirely their own. If anything, this is Cardiac Arrest at their outright catchiest, addictingly navigating between gallop and blast. With suitably haunting cover art courtesy of Juanjo Castellano and mastering by Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, "A Parallel Dimension of Despair" proves old age doesn´t soften the diehard one bit - it just kicks them into Cardiac Arrest!

PETRIFICATION - Hollow of the Void CD [MEMENTO-LXXI]
The astonishing debut full-length from this U.S. band. Hailing from Portland, Petrification formed in 2014 out of their love of old school Swedish, British and particularly Finnish Death Metal, wanting to create music that while an homage to its roots, allowed its members to find their own unique voice in Extreme Metal. Drawn to the evil and doom-laden soundscapes of the Finnish masters, Petrification set out to meticulously craft their own vision in the writing of the early 2017 demo, "Summon Horrendous Destruction". And it´s now, only a few months later, that Petrification set the bar even higher in terms of heaviness and somber ambience with the release of their debut album, "Hollow of the Void", a devastating opus that lyrically and sonically musters the band´s morbid visions of horror, demise and mephitic decay through 11 tracks of utterly gut-churning Death Metal that traps the listener in a nightmare of festering pustules that nobody can´t crawl out of. Fans of Convulse, Demigod, Grave, Dismember, Rippikoulu, Carcass, Bolt Thrower, Adramelech, Sorcery, Unleashed, Depravity, Entombed, Catacomb, God Macabre or even newer masters of the olden tradition, such as Disma and Funebrarum, will certainly find a new favorite in "Hollow of the Void". Featuring some deliciously macabre artwork and layout by Jason Barnett, the band´s vocalist, and mastered by Dan Lowndes (of Cruciamentum fame) at his own Resonance Sound Studio in the U.K., "Hollow of the Void" marks the unstoppable ascent of a new force to be reckoned with in underground Death Metal.

SHRINE OF THE SERPENT - Entropic Disillusion CD [MEMENTO-LXXII]
The jaw-dropping debut album from this U.S. band. Formed back in 2008 as Tenspeed Warlock, Shrine of the Serpent have been going under their current moniker since 2014. Comprised of past and current members of Aldebaran, Graves At Sea, Sod Hauler and Roanoke among others, this three-headed leviathan from Portland, Oregon conjure up visions of utmost ominousness and malodorous dreariness as a celebration of the inevitable, when life ceases to be and there´s nothing but a palpable somberness shrouding your passing to the other, unfathomable side. The chosen guide for such a cryptic journey is über-heavy, gloomy and miserable Death/Doom Metal. When faced with such a fate, one can only help to prepare to be crushed under the weight of utterly monolithic riffs enhanced by tortured growls, ritualistically pounding drumming and eerie-as-fuck harmonies. Ultimately, this is but the sound of "Entropic Disillusion". Although more fertile now than any time in the past, true Death/Doom Metal is still a field that´s tricky to plow: lumber too long and you arrive at boredom; spice up the formula and you lose the necessary desolation. Shrine of the Serpent exhibit mastery of the form on "Entropic Disillusion". Truly and unapologetically Death/Doom Metal to the bitter end, their slowly swirling sound patiently takes its time to entrance and then suffocate the listener, but it sure is fatal, not to mention absurdly heavy, in the most smothering way possible. Dismiss any hope for sentimental melodies, gothic overtones or operatic female voices, for the sole endeavor here is to oppress the listener. Fans of the bleakest approach to the subgenre who hail such bands as early Paradise Lost, Winter, Dusk, Hooded Menace, diSEMBOWELMENT, Loss, Druid Lord and early Cathedral will definitely find plenty of morbid joy from experiencing this concoction of impending death and doom. Completed by Mariusz Lewandowski´s ethereal cover art and a crushing mastering job courtesy of Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound Mastering, "Entropic Disillusion" announces the arrival of Death/Doom Metal´s newest titans: Shrine of the Serpent!

MALIGNANT (U.S.A.) 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: MALIGNANT, from U.S.A.

Malignant was formed in Southern California in early 2017 by Fernando Psijas, Kevin Castro and Antonio Arias. They strive to bring crushing, putrescent, head-smashing, no-frills old school Death Metal that´s massively heavy, ghastly, aggressive and violent. After much trial and failure with five different drummers, they were able to recruit ex-Morfin drummer Miguel Hernandez, who will be doing live shows and help write the upcoming full length album.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album in the 1st half of 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).

For fans of: Convulse, Gorguts, Morgoth, Carcass, Morta Skuld...

FILTHEATER (U.S.A.) 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: FILTHEATER, from U.S.A.

Filtheater began back in 2010 when founder and sole member K.J.´s bands dissipated. This led to the exploration of the abysmal, primal, stripped down Death Metal that he had worshipped as a teen. Unable to find like-minded musicians in Mississippi, K.J. went on to write and perform all aspects of the music, releasing several EP´s over the next 3 years. Now in 2018, three like-minded maniacs (C.E., R.S. and A.W.) have been added to the lineup in order to fully flesh out the band´s ancient and primitive sound, and keep the utter disgust going. Filtheater are now in the process of crafting their long overdue debut full-length assault. Prepare to be crushed under the weight of filthy and dismal Mississippi Death Metal!

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album in the 1st half of 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).

For fans of: Incantation, Grave, Rottrevore, Asphyx, Phlegm, Autopsy, Nuclear Death, Embalmer, Goreaphobia, Corpus Rottus...
