CROSS FADE (U.S.A.) demos compilation CD!!!
Weīre beyond stoked to announce the release of a CD that will compile all three demos by the obscure U.S. band CROSS FADE.

Cross Fade was formed in Mastic (Long Island, N.Y.) in March of 1991. Scot Trollan (at the time 21, vocals), John Tinger (at the time 23, guitars), Eric Rhodes (at the time 18, drums) and John Colucco (at the time 21, bass) would form one the most intense bands to ever rule a stage. Cross Fade was fortunate to have spawned and thrived in the primordial era of Long Island Death Metal, a force to be reckoned with amongst other global Metal sounds. And Cross Fade was there, absorbing it and spitting out their own unique brand of extreme music. A band with infinite potential, gaining speed and ferocity only to implode like a black star in 1994. A band whose live sound was 100 times more intense than on tape. Cross Fade looked to create fresh diverse extreme sounds, with various influences ranging from Pink Floyd and Primus to Deicide, Suffocation and Cannibal Corpse. A socially aware band, the lyrics dealt with subjects like religious falsehood, global colonialism, pollution and mental illness. A constant on the live front, Cross Fade played early backyard and legion hall shows with what would become and continue to be the core of LIDM (Internal Bleeding, Pyrexia and Suffocation), and would cut their teeth on the stages of infamous N.Y. clubs like LīAmour, Sundance, Sparks and The Roxy, sharing the large stage opening for bands such as Morbid Angel, Sorrow, Internal Bleeding and Pro-Pain. Cross Fade was prolific in the underground zine and trading scene, sending out hundreds of demos to fanzines and Metal fans at cost, as well as handing out hundreds of free demos at the many many live shows and events they did.

With the release of the self-titled demo in January 1992, the band showed where both them and the extreme sounds of the next century were going. Releasing the infamous "Ruined" demo later that year, Cross Fade was quickly becoming recognized as a force in the underground. Ferocious, moving, intense, intelligent... The band had established its sound and started doing out of state shows. In 1993 the band continued to play, promote, create, write and record, but the cracks of doom started to show. Internal creative tensions, commitments to responsibilities, all the things that come with being in a real band, were starting to weigh, all the while making the sound sharper, maner, more complex, more musical. 1994 led to the very limited release of the "Untitled" demo. This one was barely promoted or handed out, and the pressures of recording were enough to drive a final wedge in the band and ultimately lead it to ruin.

The band was never heard from again as Cross Fade... until now. The two remaining members of Cross Fade, namely Scot and Colucco, are creating some new Cross Fade music in memory of their fallen brother Eric Rhodes (RIP). Two songs are currently in the works with the sound having a heavy futuristic edge. Commitments keep Tinger from contributing to the writing. He will hopefully end up providing solos.

FFO: spazztic yet catchy, ridiculously dynamic, highly original, fucked up Death Metal with a vocalist that sounds like a mentally deranged John Tardy on crystal meth.

This compilation CD will be titled "Return to Planet Hell (1992-1994) and Memento Mori will put it out in 2021. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, feel free to listen to the demos on YouTube:

IGNIVOMOUS - Hieroglossia CD on Memento Mori!!!
Weīre beyond stoked to announce that Memento Mori has secured a licensing deal with Nuclear War Now! to put out the CD version of the third album, "Hieroglossia", by the notable Melbourne based band IGNIVOMOUS.

Borne out of the members desire to see a resurgence of a heavier, more dissonant style of Death Metal back in 2006, IGNIVOMOUS were among the first wave of bands to reignite interest in the genre in the first decade of this century. "Hieroglossia" preserves the core membership of the band present throughout its tenure -Sean Hinds (guitar), Chris Broadway (drums) and Jael Edwards (vocals)- and presents the recording debut of Lewis Fischer (Altars) on guitar and Chris Jordon (Inverloch, Eskhaton) on bass, both of whom have cemented the bandīs live assault for the previous few years in a campaign of high-profile shows in their native Australia. This lineup in its current form has secured and built upon the bandīs unrelentingly legacy, oozing raw, sinister Death Metal pushed a step further into the void, creating an album which synthesizes the bands influences with a definitive and individual vision. While projecting a murky and atmospheric take on the Death Metal template, the eight organic and primal songs on "Hieroglossia" avoid sacrificing the primacy of the riff for reverb-drenched formlessness, or songwriting in favour of dissonance for its own sake.

Thematically, "Hieroglossia" continues IGNIVOMOUSī investigation into topics of philosophical pessimism, influenced by the works of Thomas Ligotti and E.M. Cioran, and gnostic concepts of the fallen and hostile nature of the material world, presented throughout with a literary sensibility which should be accustomed to those familiar with their previous output.

Previously released on LP through Nuclear War Now! in November 2019, "Hieroglossia" was also released as a strictly limited tour edition digisleeve that was available for purchase during the bandīs European tour in late 2019. That digisleeve version did not include the official cover art and was roughly mastered. Memento Moriīs version will be presented in a regular jewel case, featuring the original cover art and layout by Stefan Thanneur, and a proper mastering work by James Plotkin (O.L.D., Khanate) at his own Plotkinworks Studio.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of "Hieroglossia" on October 26th. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure to give them a like on Facebook, and listen to a preview song here: https://nuclearwarnowproductions.bandcamp.com/track/thalassophobia
