DEVOTION (Spain) 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: DEVOTION, from Spain.

DEVOTION was founded in the autumn of 2012 in some rehearsal rooms near Valencia, where some seasoned veterans of the local underground Death Metal scene were summoned by Julkarn (bass/vocals in Graveyard) to provide backing vocals on a track of their last opus to date. The recruited crew consisted of Sergio (Profundis Tenebrarum, Domains), David Agressor (Domains) and Vicent Riera (ex-Obscure / Nadir). When the recording sessions were over they decided to start up a new band, featuring Julkarn on guitar, David Agressor on bass, Sergio on drums and Vicent on vocal duties. After a number of lineup changes over the years, with Julkarn and Vicent remaining the core of the band, it´s the addition of David Garcia (ex-Obscure, Nadir) on drums, and Txito (Visceral Damage, ex-Voice Of Hate) on bass, that finally stabilize the band´s lineup to this day. In 2016, this quartet recorded their debut full-length album, titled Necrophiliac Cults, only released on CD format through the Spanish labels The Horror Dimension and Pathologically Explicit Recordings. For this recording they counted on the priceless participation of Igor Mesmer (Circumcelion) on keyboards, who unfortunately passed away shortly after the release. So far, Devotion have played several shows with bands such as Interment, Dead Congregation, Graveyard, Korgull the Exterminator, Mercyless, Putrid Offal, Primigenium, Dead, Schirenc plays Pungent Stench, Oniricous, Balmog, Himura, Convulsions and some others, and the band´s more than willing to continue spreading their Metal of Death anywhere possible.

The ilk of Death Metal that DEVOTION display is not affiliated to any particular school, let alone any current trend, for it´s all about uncompromising, organic, putrid, crushing and timeless Death Metal as we knew it in the early/mid 90´s, eminently mid-paced and drenched in a rotting atmosphere, with a strong penchant for memorability and catchiness, which is a trait that seems to be lost in most of today´s Death Metal. Fans of über-classic acts such as Asphyx, Bolt Thrower, Morgoth, Grave and Benediction, won´t be disappointed and might very well have a new name to add to their list of Death Metal bands to keep an eye -and an ear- out on.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their sophomore full-length album in the 2nd half of 2020. Further details to follow in the coming months.

OUT NOW AND SHIPPING!!!
ATARAXY - Curse of the Requiem Mass / Rotten Shit CD [MEMENTO-LXXXIII]
Official reissue of the 2010 EP by this already cult Spanish band. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Javier Felez (of Graveyard fame) at his own Moontower Studios in Barcelona, "Curse of the Requiem Mass" features 6 tracks of putrid and foul-smelling Death Metal in the purest tradition of the early works of bands such as Asphyx, Autopsy, Morgoth and Immolation, with a pinch of the old school Swedish/Finnish vibe (think Depravity and Convulse). As a very special bonus, this CD also includes their 2009 demo, "Rotten Shit", for a total of 45 minutes of aural filth and decay.

FUNERALOPOLIS - ...of Death / ...of Prevailing Chaos CD [MEMENTO-LXXXIV]
A CD that compiles the 2010 demo and the 2013 EP by this upcoming and promising Swiss band. Funeralopolis was awoken under the name Human Waste in 2006. With vocalist Void joining the band in 2009, they changed the name to Funeralopolis. Void left the band shortly after, but the name stayed. They started recording the first demo, titled "...of Death", with a slightly different lineup (guitar-desecrator Thuri also took on vocals) under horrible circumstances in only 48 hours (including mixing and mastering). The tape was released as a co-release between Dark Descent Records and Skeleton Plague. Several years and beers later, the recording of the "...of Prevailing Chaos" EP took place at Hidden Stash Studios, with a slightly different lineup. It was summoned in 2013. Funeralopolis didn´t have any lineup changes since 2011, and have been around since a decade now. Over the years, they´ve shared the stage with bands like Mystifier, Dead Congregation, Excruciation, Diocletian, Bölzer, Sadistic Intent and many more. The band´s main influences can be tracked back to the late 80´s and early 90´s Death Metal of bands such as Autopsy, Darkthrone, Asphyx, Sadistic Intent, Nihilist, Necrovore, Obituary, Incantation and Blasphemy. Besides that, other bands like Sodom, Cianide, Sarcofago, Winter, Candlemass, Doom, Carnivore and many many more also had a big impact on Funeralopolis.
