CARCINOID (Australia) signed to Memento Mori!!!
In our endless quest to push and support underground acts that deliver the goods unaware of trends and hypes, we´re extremely excited to announce a new signing: CARCINOID, from Australia.

Hailing from Melbourne, CARCINOID belong to that strain of nefarious bands that could not possibly be given birth to: this is the offspring of a miscarriage more like. Such odorous, pugnacious and hideous is the music that this quartet belch forth. Comprised of past/current members of other local underground acts such as Dungeons of Blood, Pregnancy, Reaper, Eternal Rest, Hobo Magic, Xenos and Spawn, CARCINOID claim to be equally influenced by the likes of Autopsy, Napalm Death, Paradise Lost, Corrupted, Pungent Stench, Obituary, Grief, Carcass, Cathedral and Brutal Truth among others. The amalgamation of such foul ingredients results in a putrescent stew where Death/Doom Metal of the filthiest and most crushing order predominates, and sudden blasts of grinding derangement help intensify the vile listening experience.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album on October 31st, 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, go like Carcinoid´s Facebook page and make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).

PROSCRITO (Spain) signed to Memento Mori!!!
In our endless quest to push and support underground acts that deliver the goods unaware of trends and hypes, we´re extremely excited to announce a new signing: PROSCRITO, from Spain.

PROSCRITO was born from the ashes of the sloppier incarnation known as Calvario in 2016, paying homage to the too-doomed-to-be-dead/to-dead-to-be-doomed parts of releases like "Satanic Rites", "Erupted Evil", "The Dying Truth", "Embrace the Death", "Mental Funeral", "Lost Paradise", "Into Darkness", "Worship Him" or "Reflections from the Solstice", crafting slow and churning tracks that were to be (not really) perfected with the band´s debut, titled "El Calvario" (Iron Bonehead, 2017), a release filled with an all-encompassing passion for decay and rottenness, from the penitent and flagellant opening track "Via Crucis" to the closing instrumental mantra that is "Puteado", pounding caveman percussion, thundering bass and wah-soloing frenziness in between. After three days of morbid delirium at Moontower Studios (Ataraxy, Graveyard, Oniricous, Teitanblood...), once again under Javier Felez´s supervision, the follow-up to the debut EP took form with some more echoes to the days of yore as a full-length frontal assault titled "Llagas y Estigmas" ("Sores and Stigmata"), featuring 5 disgruntled litanies of blood, sweat and no tears imagery reminiscent of Robert E. Howard and Cormac McCarthy, muscular riffage, vomit and mucus. Tracks like "Marcado por la Pezuña", "Tronos de Oprobio" or their (scato)logical outcome "Pantalgia" truly persist with that tradition of primitiveness, putting the stress both in the DEATH and the METAL, for doom has always been the band´s destiny, its powers and wisdom.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album, "Llagas y Estigmas", in January 2020. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure to give them a like on Facebook and listen to their previous output (links below).

As a special celebration of the band´s 35th anniversary, Memento Mori is thrilled to unleash a 2CD set that compiles all studio demos + rarities by this seminal Thrash/Death Metal band from The Netherlands, absolute precursors of the extreme side of Metal in their country. All songs were digitalized from the original sources and subtly mastered for an even more pleasurable listening experience. Also included as a very special treat for this compilation, two old songs re-recorded in early 2019 featuring former guitar player and original member Remco de Maaijer as guest musician. Cover art by Mörtuus.

Tracks 1-2: old songs re-recorded in early 2019 (including a guest appearance by one original band member from 1984)

FILTHEATER - Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction CD [MEMENTO-LXXXII]
The atrocious debut full-length by this U.S. based band. Filtheater began back in 2010 when founder and sole member K.J.´s bands dissipated. This led to the exploration of the abysmal, primal, stripped-down Death Metal that he had worshiped as a teen, spewed forth by bands such as Incantation, Phlegm, Grave, Entety, Rottrevore, Baphomet, Autopsy, Nuclear Death, Embalmer, Goreaphobia and Corpus Rottus. Unable to find like-minded musicians in Mississippi, K.J. went on to write and perform all aspects of the music, releasing several EP´s over the next three years. Then in 2018, three like-minded maniacs (C.E., R.S. and A.W.) were added to the lineup in order to fully flesh out the band´s ancient and primitive sound, and keep the utter disgust going. And indeed, utter disgust is all you´ll find on "Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction"! Aptly titled, Filtheater´s debut album unleashes undulating waves of filth and foulness, an unyielding and cruel cascade of garbage and grime that simply refuses to be washed off. Raw and eldritch is their Death Metal, with no "modern" seasonings/neuterings: simply, lurch and crunch with palpitating plunges into blastbeaten speed. Death Metal for Death Metal maniacs, no more but certainly no less. Prepare to be crushed under the weight of filthy and dismal Mississippi Death Metal! With fittingly foul cover art by Mörtuus and disgusting mastering by Dan Lowndes, Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction is guaranteed to live up to its title, and then some!
