INFESTICIDE (Mexico) 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: INFESTICIDE, from Mexico.

Dwelling in the festering depths of the state of Morelos since 2013, INFESTICIDE exemplify the ilk of primeval Death Metal that drew its influences from the rawest, most rabid, most uncompromising Thrash Metal, and relentlessly took the underground scene by the storm back in the mid and late 80´s. Devoid of sterile and polished muscle, and abounding in unbridled fierceness in all departments -from the riffing to the lyrics, and through the vocal delivery- INFESTICIDE fully embody the vision of Death Metal being ultimately dark, abhorrent, invidious, yelling, filthy, violent, sinister... A total celebration of Death.

FFO: Morbid Angel, Necrovore, Possessed, Necrosanct, Mortem, Sadistic Intent, Mantas/Death, Blood Spill, Incubus, Desexult, Insanity...

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

"Scream Out in Fright" demo (2014)

BARÚS (France) signed to Memento Mori!!!
In our endless quest to push and support underground acts that deliver the goods unaware of trends and hypes, we´re extremely excited to announce a new signing: BARÚS, from France.

This Grenoble-based band was formed in 2015, releasing a first EP through Emanations (a division of Les Acteurs de l´Ombre Productions). Since mid-2016, work has been focused on their debut full-length album.

The term Barús evokes a weight, an overbearing burden. This takes musical form through a complex and utterly atmospherical, yet visceral, approach to Death Metal. A monolithic, churning sound merged with progressive structures, frequently delving into Black or Doom territories, completed by deep vociferations and vocalisations spanning from semi-clean moans to spoken word and chants, and everything in between.

Being described as "Autopsy reinterpreted by Meshuggah" or "Gojira and Gorguts jamming out to an old Demilich tune with Ulcerate´s instruments", BARÚS should definitely appeal to fans of daring bands such as Gorguts, Triptykon, Ulcerate, Emptiness, Meshuggah, Portal, Diskord, Akercocke, Gojira, Sumac, Deathspell Omega, Altars and Chaos Echoes. "Drowned", the band´s debut full-length album, features 9 songs in 56 minutes, and was recorded between 2016 and 2017 at Plastic Lobster Studios & Eptagon, with drum recording & additional reamping done at Octavox Studio. Mixed and Mastered by James Leonard at Plastic Lobster Studios. Cover art by Timo Ketola. Inner artwork by Stephen Wilson.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of "Drowned" on October 22nd, 2018. Further details to follow in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).

OUT NOW AND SHIPPING!!!
ATAVISMA - The Chthonic Rituals CD [MEMENTO-LXXIII]
The highly anticipated debut full-length of this French band. Hailing from the new breed of exquisite French Death Metal darkness, Atavisma formed in late 2013 and promptly set to work perfecting their assiduously doomed-out craft. Founders G. (guitar) and L. (vocals) wanted to create a band devoted to old school Death Metal, and with the addition of C. (drums) and W. (bass) shortly thereafter, the quartet´s compositions progressively shifted towards a Death/Doom Metal approach with a penchant for lyrics that mainly deal with the relationship between man and nature, ancient cultures and spirituality. Wisely prizing quality over quantity, Atavisma´s sparse discography comprises a debut single in 2014 and a four-song demo that same year, a split 7" with Maur in 2015, and a two-song 7" last year. During all this, the band took their craft to the stage alongside such bands as Archgoat, Merrimack, Inferno, Ritualization, Ataraxie, Mercyless and Mourning Dawn, and as recently as February/March 2017, they embarked on their first French tour and supported Blood Incantation and Cruciamentum during their European tour. With their chops finely honed in the studio and on the live front, at last comes the time for Atavisma´s momentous debut album: "The Chthonic Rituals". The album´s title not-so-subtly serves as a clarion call for the quartet´s aesthetic to date, and where that aesthetic can fully go when given a long-form format. Ridiculously filthy and yet exuding a startling sense of clarity, Atavisma here conjure a forever-roiling, fatally-swirling whirlpool of murk and total and utter darkness. Riffs are doled out like sick and slithering creatures that soon overtake their master, devouring both body and soul with salacious delight. Thus armed, compositions take on obscene forms, utilizing both über-heavy hooks and labyrinthine detours, hackle-raising tension and hypnotic quasi-melodicism, winding the listener down caverns most foul, warping any sense of sanity. And although the band´s attack has gotten progressively doomier, there´s never a moment of inertia; all is forward momentum, and it all leads toward an abyss with literally no end. The 11-minute closer says everything in its title: "A Subterranean Life". Totality is reached in both cover art (courtesy of E. Muskie), mixing by Johan Bijaoui at Mannaz Records, and mastering by the elite Javier Felez at Moontower Studios. Maniacs of Incantation, Cianide, Grave, Disma, Winter, Funebre, Encoffination and classic Convulse, hereby meet your new masters: Atavisma. Let The Chthonic Rituals begin...

DAMNATORY - The Complete Disgoregraphy 1991-2003 CD [MEMENTO-LXXIV]
A CD that compiles the body of work of this old, obscure Swiss Death Metal band. "The Complete Disgoregraphy 1991-2003" features the "The Persistence of Archaic Dogma..." demo (1991), the "In My Darkest Vision..." promo (1991), the "Hybridized Deformity" EP (1992), the "Docta Ignorantia" EP (1993) and the "The Second Side of the Coin..." demo (2003). To depict Damnatory´s own brand of Death Metal ain´t no simple task, for it encapsulates a number of different features and influences, namely the grinding brutality of early Pungent Stench, the fondness for intricacy of early Disharmonic Orchestra, the rawness and the filth of early Grave, and the uncanniness of Mangled Torsos, molding a Death Metal mongrel that bounces back and forth from sick tremolo-picked riffs, to thrashy headbanging sections and to slow, doomish passages. The casket has yet again been opened for all zealots of the early 90´s undeground Death Metal to inhale the odor of the lifeless ones! All songs restored and mastered by Patrick Engel (of Hatespawn fame) at Temple of Disharmony, Germany. Artwork and layout by Marco Gemmet, the band´s vocalist on the 1992 EP and the 2003 demo.
