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

Spawned from the sick brain cells of several past and current members of other deadly Hellenic entities (Ectoplasma, Resurgency...) back in 2013, VULTUR have been exhibiting an unquenchable thirst for sanguine Death Metal fluids ever since, revealed in all its putrid and vicious glory both in their "Vultureīs Beak" demo (2016) and their "Entangled in the Webs of Fear" debut album (2018). Theirs is a timeless ilk of bludgeoning Death Metal thatīs stuffed with assorted tempos that go from relentless eruptions of savagery, to torturous and doomed out passages replete with morbid harmonies, and though mid-paced onslaughts of sheer heaviness, influenced by the likes of Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Monstrosity, Immolation, Brutality, Suffocation, Morpheus Descends, Incantation... Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their sophomore full-length album on October 31st, 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months.

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

Established in Nizhny Novgorod in February 2013, WOMBRIPPER has ever since leaned towards the Swedish school of Death Metal with raw, crunchy buzzsaw guitars and straightforward compositions. Highly influenced by Grave, Entombed and Dismember, their first demo, titled "Morbid Aberrations", was recorded and released in 2014 and the band shared the stage with some of genre milestones such as Necrophobic, Nominon and Fleshcrawl, and also newer underground acts such as Undergang, Nocturnal Witch, etc. After several lineup changes, the 4-track EP "Infected Tomb" was recorded and self-released by the band in 2017. That same year WOMBRIPPER recorded their debut full-length album, titled "From the Depths of Flesh", that was released in 2018 by different labels, such as Redefining Darkness Records (U.S.A.) and Grotesque Sounds (Russia). "From the Depths of Flesh" gained them lots of positive feedback from the media and old school Death Metal fans alike, as the album displayed some top-notch Swedeath, an aural massacre plenty of catchy and morbid melodies, blazing solos and blasting devastation. Now the band acts as a three-piece and continue to craft music for a new album thatīs going to exhibit more of WOMBRIPPERīs pure old school Swedeath of the highest grade.

FFO: Entombed, Fleshcrawl, Entrails, Nirvana 2002, Dismember, Grave, Demonical, Carnage, God Macabre...

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

OUT NOW AND SHIPPPING!!!
RAVENOUS DEATH - Chapters of an Evil Transition CD [MEMENTO-LXXVIII]
The striking debut full-length by this Mexican band. Hailing from the vast Death Metal hotbed of Mexico, Ravenous Death feature current members of such other bands as Remains, Demonic Manifestation and Deathīs Forsaken. The bandīs embryo was brought forth in 2016 during the recording of Remainsī third album in Mexico City, when vocalist/guitar player Miguel Angel and drummer Esteban Salcedo toyed with the idea of creating a Death Metal band influenced by Vomitory, Torture Division and the likes. Later on, both musicians shared their vision with lead guitarist Enrique Fray, and the three of them agreed to push the idea forward and carry it out as a side-project due to the commitments they all had with their main bands. Soon after, Enrique and Miguel Angel began writing songs for the newborn abomination, and the three members decided to name the band after a Vomitory song titled "The Ravenous Dead". Fast forward to October 2016, and the recording of Ravenous Deathīs debut demo/EP, "Ominous Deathcult", is finalized (although not released as a Bandcamp download until March 2017), including 5 songs chock full of rotting maliciousness that show great poise in combining blasting brutality, crushing heaviness, somber ambience and fierce intensity, with the lyrical themes revolving about death, occultism, blasphemy and other classic topics of the olden Metal of Death. On May 13th, 2017, the band make their first live performance in the city of Guadalajara. For this occasion two new members were recruited -namely, bass player Alejandro Mendez and guitarist Diego Gomez- leaving Miguel Angel on vocal duties alone. After the excellent crowd response, both Alejandro and Diego join the band as official members. Emboldened by this patient momentum, at last arrives Ravenous Deathīs full-length debut, aptly titled "Chapters of an Evil Transition". Indeed displaying the bandīs transition into an evil Death Metal juggernaut, the album absolutely bleeds the molten-yet-mildewed essence of 90īs Metal of Death. Fucking fashion and trends and especially fickle tastes, "Chapters of an Evil Transition" is a gutsfucking time-warp to the days when Death Metal was supposedly "dead", lost in favor of Black Metal, Power Metal or (worse) ill-fated sellout fantasies. In this landscape did many a raw and righteous mini-classic get birthed, and suitably do Ravenous Death continue the proud legacy of Vomitory and Mexican forebears Shub Niggurath, but also especially Sadistic Intent, Seance, old Grave, 90īs Immolation, 90īs Vader and Finlandīs Demigod. No more but definitely no less, this is Death Metal by and for Death Metal maniacs: no bullshit and no sellout! Completed by stark artwork courtesy of Mörtuus and mastering by the esteemed Javier Felez at Moontower Studios, allow Ravenous Death to read you "Chapters of an Evil Transition"!

VILE APPARITION - Depravity Ordained CD [MEMENTO-LXXIX]
The staggering debut full-length by this Australian band. Oozing out of Melbourne, Vile Apparition 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 that bandīs debut album, "Immortalized in Suffering", in order to pursue other endeavors. Vile Apparitionīs self-released debut 4-song demo, "Atrocious Captivity", was picked up for a cassette release in early 2018 on Transylvanian Tapes, just in time for the band to fill their live lineup for their first run of shows starting January 2018. Alas, "Atrocious Captivity" was but a brief taste of the nastiness to come, now in the form of Vile Apparitionīs full-length debut, "Depravity Ordained". No lies in that title: this is fetid and filthy Death Metal that puts a premium on the bludgeon! Old school as it comes, of course, Vile Apparitionīs no-frills approach hearkens to the likes of Morpheus Descends, Ripping Corpse and Deteriorot, as well as the early works of Suffocation, Deeds of Flesh and Cryptopsy. An astounding exhibition of ridiculous, malignant heaviness thatīll drill a hole in your skull and blow your brain cells to smithereens, the album also includes the preceding demo as bonus tracks. With suitably classic cover art courtesy of Chaostouched and mastering by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio, Vile Apparition bring you blunt-force trauma with "Depravity Ordained"!

HORRISONOUS - A Culinary Cacophony CD [MEMENTO-LXXX]
The stunning debut full-length by this Australian band. Hailing from Sydney, Horrisonous formed in late 2015 and comprise a handful of hardened members of the local underground scene, including past or current members of such acts as Temple Nightside, Backyard Mortuary, The Slow Death, Illimitable Dolor and Pestilential Shadows among others. Not surprisingly, Horrisonous deliver aural slime, decay and misery by means of the ageless brand of Death Metal thatīs equally ponderous, crushing and fervent, enhanced with slithering tempos and influenced by the likes of Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, Autopsy, Death, early Paradise Lost, Celtic Frost, Carcass, Dismember and Incantation. They proved it on their debut EP, "The Plague Doctors", in 2016 and they proved it with the Asphyx and Celtic Frost covers comprising the follow-up "The Plague Doctors B-sides" EP two years later, and they fully prove it with their debut full-length, "A Culinary Cacophony". A cursory glance at some of the albumīs song titles ("Crispy Chunks of the Obese", "Nourishment Through Excrement", "Number of the Feast"...) and one could potentially assume Horrisonous are a hokey gore band. While their noses are no doubt in tune with lifeīs foulest recesses, Horrisonous are deadly serious about their juggernauting Death Metal. Requisitely filthy as any Memento Mori release, "A Culinary Cacophony" digs deeply into the doom and serves up serious helpings of up-tempo gallop and blast. Itīs a world-eating sound that evokes a creepiness quite at odds with such otherwise tongue-in-cheek titles, but only Horrisonous know the methods to their madness... Brazenly adorned with garishly gruesome cover art courtesy of Rod Scott, Horrisonous offer a symphony of sickness with "A Culinary Cacophony"!
