VILE APPARITION (Australia) 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: VILE APPARITION, from Australia. Oozing out of Melbourne, the band is a new project of Oliver Ballantyne (drums) and Jamie Colic (guitar, bass, vocals), both ex-members of the mighty Sewercide that left shortly after the recording of the debut album, "Immortalized in Suffering", in order to pursue other endeavours. VILE APPARITION´s debut 4-song demo, "Atrociuous Captivity", has been picked up for a cassette release later this year on Transylvanian Tapes, and the band´s currently looking to fill their live lineup in time for their first run of shows starting January 2018. If you happen to miss the fetid stench of classic, bludgeoning old school brutal Death Metal à la Morpheus Descends, Immortal Fate, Decrepit, early Immolation, Morbid Angel, early Deeds of Flesh, Ripping Corpse, early Suffocation and Deteriorot, waste no more time, go like these Aussies´ page and make sure to listen to "Atrocious Captivity" (links below), for it´s an astounding exhibition of ridiculous, malignant heaviness that´ll drill a hole in your skull and blow your brain cells to smithereens. Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album by late 2018 / early 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months.

DONATION TO "LA CASITA DE BUBA"
[ENGLISH BELOW]

La mayoría de vosotros sabéis del compromiso que tenemos para con el mundo felino, especialmente con los gatos que son abandonados o que sencillamente viven en la calle. Solemos colaborar con una asociación que hay en nuestra zona llamada La Casita de Buba (https://www.facebook.com/lacasitadebuba) que, como reza su lema, se dedica a dar un hogar temporal a los "sin hogar" y que, como casi todas, a duras penas puede sufragar los gastos veterinarios derivados de proporcionarles la atención que merecen y necesitan hasta que aparezca alguien que quiera o pueda adoptarles. Con el fin de ayudarles un poco más en su tarea, Marian y yo hemos decidido donar a la asociación el 10% de los ingresos brutos que generemos con Memento Mori durante todo el mes de Septiembre. Aparte de esto, nos gustaría hacer un llamamiento a todo aquel que pueda y quiera colaborar con la asociación (donaciones, ser casa de acogida, adoptar...) para que se ponga en contacto con ellos a través de su página en Facebook. En el caso concreto de posibles donaciones, si queréis hacerlo a través nuestro, decídnoslo y sencillamente añadiremos vuestra donación a la que les haremos el 1 de Octubre. Gracias de antemano.

Most of you know about our strong commitment to the feline world, and most specially to attending abandoned and stray cats. We usually collaborate with a local association called La Casita de Buba (https://www.facebook.com/lacasitadebuba) that provides the "homeless" with a temporary home. Like most associations, they barely manage to cover the vet expenses derived from giving these cats the attention and care they deserve and need until the day someone else can offer them a permanent home. In order to help them out even more, we have resolved to donate the 10% of the gross income generated by Memento Mori over the entire month of September. Besides this, we´d like to appeal to anybody that may want and afford to make a donation to get in touch with us so we can add that donation to the big one we´ll be making on October 1st. Thanks in advance.

DEAD CONSPIRACY - Dead Conspiracy CD [MEMENTO-LXIII]
The sophomore full-length album from this cult U.S. band. Formed in 1986, Dead Conspiracy is to this day considered by many as a pioneer and influence to Death/Gore Metal bands worldwide. Originally released on vinyl, tape and digital in November 2016, "Dead Conspiracy" features 9 tracks of the band´s trademark Thrash Metal-edged, Punk-infused, evil-minded, vicious and unadulterated savagery that should definitely appeal to fans of other primal and unrefined Death Metal acts that helped shape the genre in the 80´s, such as Nunslaughter, Necrophagia, Mantas/Death, Master, Incubus, Possessed, Deceased, Autopsy/Abscess, Terminal Death, Massacre, Exmortis, Repulsion, Slaughter, N.M.E... The vocals drip with devilish flare, the bass is clear and punchy, guitars are treble and sound like scythes, and drums sound like they were recorded on a low-budget in the best way. There are no tricks here, just raw skill and Metal. "Dead Conspiracy" is a powerful album, even after many repeated listens. It displays everything you need old school Death Metal to display: bone-crunching riffs, pounding breakdowns and speed delivered with anger, atmosphere and energy by a band that´s riddled with acrimonious motivation and a burning passion for the genre. So dig up your favorite cadaver to sit with while you get kick your ears kicked in, for the deadliest have now returned!!!

FOSSOR - Emerging from the Abyss CD [MEMENTO-LXIV]
For the first time ever on CD format, here comes an official reissue of the obscure and solitary demo of the old Spanish band Fossor, originally released on tape back in 1994. Fossor first burst into the Spanish underground Death Metal scene back in August 1993, in the small northern town of Logroño. It came into being as a spin-off from the first two Aposento line-ups, another legendary then Spanish band and local pioneers of the genre. Their music approach was logically rooted in the soundings of the genuine and still effervescing international Death Metal scene, taking their cues from the ancient Florida sound (Obituary, Massacre and most specifically "Leprosy" and "Spiritual Healing" era Death) and the European tradition of bands such as Benediction, Entombed, Asphyx, Grave and Gorefest. Despite the lack of a proper distribution and promotion, "Emerging from the Abyss" would end up gaining some recognition within the underground domestic ranks and also positive reviews in places remote as Asia and other European countries, including the insertion of the song "The Bastard Son of God" on the 1995 compilation "Sometimes... Death is Better II" put out by the Belgian label Shiver Records. A truly unmissable gem of the 90´s underground and happily exhumed at last, this very special reissue of "Emerging from the Abyss" was mastered by Dan Lowndes (of Cruciamentum fame) at his own Resonance Sound Studio in the U.K., and features brand new artwork by Raul Fuentes (a.k.a. Mortuus) as well as a fully detailed bio-interview conducted and compiled by David Bleak (Bleak ´zine).
