RECKLESS MANSLAUGHTER (Germany) 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: RECKLESS MANSLAUGHTER, from Germany.

Summoned in North Rhine-Westphalia in November 2008, the walking corpse known as RECKLESS MANSLAUGHTER is living proof that death has many faces, covering all tempo variations and unaware of trends or conventions, all the while maintaining a core personality of their very own. To descend into the nether regions where these Death Metal acolytes dwell, is to be left to fester in a desolate and fathomless realm whose landscape is filled to the brim with violent blasts, crushing mid-tempo sections, gloomy doom-ish parts and atrocious growls, rounded off with a sprinkling of eerie Finnish melodies. Expect nothing but uncompromising Metal of Death, total underground worshipping and utter annihilation.

FFO: Bolt Thrower, Morbid Angel, Demigod, Sinister, Immolation, Monstrosity, Benediction, Brutality, Asphyx, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation...

RECKLESS MANSLAUGHTER´s 4th full-length is due out on October 21st, 2024. Memento Mori will release the CD version and Fucking Kill Records will take care of the LP version. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure that you give them a like on Facebook and listen to their previous output (links below).

DIPYGUS - Dipygus CD [MEMENTO-CXXXIII]
The highly anticipated 3rd full-length by this U.S. band. Since the dawn of the Paleolithic age, mankind has recorded spectacular scenes of death, whether in scenes of cannibal feasts crudely etched on cave walls, massacres immortalized in glyphs adorning monuments of the ancient kingdoms, or in chance recordings of grisly accidents, compiled and sold on home video to those with a thirst for that which is denied to them by our "civilized" society. Spawned in the contaminated sewers of Santa Cruz, California in 2013, Dipygus began as a four-piece mutation performing rudimentary styles of Death Metal, a sonic evolution of the tradition continued from the time of Cro-Magnons. A 2015 demo recording, the earliest surviving documentation of the band, reveled in unexplained and bizarre events, including peculiar methods of whale carcass disposal and otherworldly monsters from on and off the silver-screen. After a lineup change in 2016, Dipygus recorded the "Long Pig Feast" EP, which featured terrifying rites, ritual mutilations and ominous sightings of a Mesozoic relic in the heart of the Congo. Their debut album, "Deathooze", slowly de-composed in the murky shallows of powerplant runoff in the Monterey Bay, ultimately being recorded in 2018. Though quickly banned in over 16 countries, Dipygus´ debut album attracted immediate attention among slime fetishists and similarly deviant circles. Placed appropriately alongside the Fiji mermaids and other grotesque artefacts found in curio cabinets of modern-day antiquarians, "Deathooze" continued the band´s exploration of inexplicable incidents, mysterious beasts and shocking carnage, including genuine audio recovered from a fatal attack at the hands of an ape gone mad! Following their debut album, Dipygus was conjoined with an additional member, and began a new exploration in search of secrets hidden in the jungles of lost continents, where life is cheap. After successful initiation into the shadowy world of black-market cuisine, an agreement was reached with Memento Mori for the release of the band´s second full-length, "Bushmeat". Showcasing more exotic and repulsive themes of the supernatural and taboo, "Bushmeat" presented an uncensored and unrelenting spectacle, with each element of the previous work irresponsibly taken to a further extreme. A prime cut of raw and grueling terror, it was fit for consumption by headhunters, body-snatchers, toad-venom junkies, cargo cultists, aquatic ape theorists, disaster tourists, carriers of tropical disease, voodoo practitioners and orgone revivalists only. All others having since been warned, Dipygus return to time primordial with an elegantly self-titled third album. Suitably graced with evocative cover art courtesy of Hayden Hall, Dipygus thrusts the helpless listener into a psychedelic jungle of grisly delights. At 10 songs in 41 minutes, the quartet qualify their most lengthy recording yet with maximum delirium and characteristically crushing execution. Everything here feels massive -tone, feel, supernatural aura- yet somehow simultaneously exhibits a spacious quality that´s unsettling to the Nth degree. Perhaps that´s due to Dipygus´ increasingly twisted songwriting, neither "tech" nor improvisatory, but a certain "elevated caveman" aspect that pushes primitivism toward mind-bending ends. Fleeting-yet-haunting leads also play a part in Dipygus´ menagerie of malodorousness, exacerbating the psychotic reactions in their humid, hellish jungle, and even touches of way-back synths get mangled within, melting into the fuckton heaviness of Dipygus´ riffing. Ever wanna hear the most tripped-out moments of Autopsy, Impetigo and especially Nuclear Death taken to their ILLogicial conclusion? Then enter Dipygus´ self-titled album... if you dare!

NECROTUM - Defleshed Exhumation CD [MEMENTO-CXXXIV]
The pummeling 3rd full-length by this Romanian band. The rancid entity known as Necrotum was initiated by mainman Filip Garlonta (Putred, Demoted, Vorus) in Brasov, back in 2019. Despite the fact that the band has only been around for four years, Necrotum have already produced an impressive output, including two albums and a number of shorter releases, getting tighter, danker, heavier and more macabre over time, drawing inspiration from the likes of early Cannibal Corpse, Incantation, Wombbath, Broken Hope and Grave among others, with the sole intention of perpetuating ghastly, downtuned, no-frills Death fuckin´ Metal. While it would be expected (and celebrated) if Necrotum stuck to those rancid guns, on their forthcoming third album, "Defleshed Exhumation", do they become slicker and yet more twisted, tighter but also wilder, and ​perhaps more "evolved"... very relatively speaking! Because make no mistake, ​Necrotum are ​staunchly (and sickly!) Death Metal of a most 90´s vintage, but whereas their preceding full-lengths could be slotted within the pantheon of early 90´s Death Metal, "​Defleshed Exhumation" takes a concerted path ​toward mid or even late 90´s Death Metal. Think the likes of Monstrosity, Broken Hope, Mortal Decay, Deeds of Flesh and pre-breakup Suffocation: undeniably fierce and punishing, but technical in ​a creepy and oft-slimy way. Not for nothing is the cover art created by Slimeweaver! Of especial note is the production on "Defleshed Exhumation": this is about as slick and clean as you can get whilst retaining the core darkness and horror ​of classic ​Death Metal. If anything, those superlatively sharp edges only make that darkness and horror hit harder. Stomp in the slime and twist down into its depths with Necrotum!

MEPHITIC GRAVE - Dreadful Seizures CD [MEMENTO-CXXXV]
The much-anticipated 2nd full-length by this Hungarian band. Formed in 2018 by Zoli (guitars) and Balázs (drums), initially under the monicker Mothrot, it wasn´t after Knot (guitars) and Ádám (bass/vocals) joined the band that they morphed into Mephitic Grave and the Lovecraftian universe of cosmic horror based Death Metal welcomed a new entity. Their shared adoration of the classic Finndeath scene and the mighty ancient U.S. bands settled their musical approach: unrefined, sickening and miasmatic Death Metal that oozes viscous matter and is drenched in derangement. Their debut album, "Into the Atrium of Inhuman Morbidity", put the band on the map of current, underground Death Metal in 2021. Since then, they´ve been working on new aural madness to dive deeper into the harrowing tones from beyond, which is exactly what they accomplished with "Dreadful Seizures", the band´s sophomore full-length effort. Fans of bands such as Abhorrence, Autopsy, Funebre, Grave, Obituary, Purtenance, Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel, rejoice: "Dreadful Seizures", graced with the talent of cover artist Mónus Viktor, is here to satisfy your craving for vintage Metal of Death!
