ALTERED DEAD (Canada) 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: ALTERED DEAD, from Canada.

With beginnings in 2011, ALTERED DEAD is a two-piece contributing to the tradition of early Death Metal with a simple, therefore genuine, approach -no frills, filthy and raw- influenced by the likes of Autopsy, Death Breath, Grave, Asphyx, Darkthrone, Unleashed, Exhumed, Carnage.... Twisted and gross riffs rip alongside warring treads of percussion, with the accompaniment of scalded and bellowing dual vocals, and lyrical themes of physical and mental warfare, mutating human nature, imminent conflict and collapse. Currently residing in Esquimalt, on southern Vancouver Island, the outfit has had numerous live performances and released recordings on multiple formats, including their self-titled debut album on Cavernous Records (U.K.), and is currently putting the finishing touches to the follow-up album.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their sophomore full-length album later this year. 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).

OUT NOW AND SHIPPING!!!
PROSCRITO - Llagas y Estigmas CD [MEMENTO-LXXXVIII]
The crushing debut full-length by this Spanish band. Proscrito was born from the ashes of the sloppier incarnation known as Calvario in 2016, paying homage to the too-doomed-to-be-dead/too-dead-to-be-doomed music of such acts as Cianide, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Necro Schizma, Asphyx, Autopsy, Paradise Lost, Winter, Samael and Goatlord, crafting slow and churning tracks that were to be (not really) perfected with the band´s debut EP, "El Calvario", in 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, Proscrito´s 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. Any way you describe it, the dense and sulfurous rumble this Spanish power trio creates can cause tectonic shifts as ably as it can rot your soul. There´s an almost uncomfortably carefree, laissez faire approach to Proscrito´s ritualistic plod, as if the band is indifferently acting as a conduit for supernatural frequencies only they can sense. It´s not often that Memento Mori dips its toes into the doomier end of Death Metal as of lately, but when it does, be fucking sure that it´s for good reason! And indeed, "Llagas y Estigmas" is one badass good reason!

COFFIN CURSE - Ceased to Be CD [MEMENTO-LXXXIX]
The long-awaited debut full-length by this Chilean band. Coffin Curse was thrown into this worthless world in Santiago in mid-2012, as a side-project of the main band Inanna, to spawn and vomit forth Death Metal in its purest form. Max Neira (guitars, bass, vocals) conceived this beast as a two-piece squad to explore the caverns of everlasting pain and horror. Musically, this is malevolent, straightforward, headbang-inducing Death Metal, inspired by early 90´s U.S. icons such as Morbid Angel, Monstrosity, Obituary, Immolation or Deicide, plus the vicious vibe from the founding fathers such as Pentagram (Chile), Death, Possessed, Sepultura, Massacre, Slaughter Lord, Necrovore, etc. There´s no blind allegiance nor messages to anyone; no dogmatic, religious, or cult preaching. Coffin Curse verses are just focused on the multiple facets of death in all its shapes, spiritually, physically, morally, mentally and metaphysically: evil, madness, multiple perversions, violence, hatred and despair, all that in communion within the endless confines of the human psyche. From 2012 up until 2018, Coffin Curse have insulted the planet with one demo, three EP´s and one split effort, and now Max Neira along with Carlos Fuentes (drums) are ready to spit out the band´s debut album, titled "Ceased to Be", which will be their biggest insult to the planet yet. Classic and crushing, Coffin Curse here unload a barrage of timeless Death Metal in a most late-80´s mold, a time, it must be said (or at least repeated once again!), when "songwriting" and "Death Metal" weren´t mutually exclusive terms. No riff salads, no jock jams, no gore-overload masking a dearth of ideas. Rather, taut and terrorizing memorability pumped full of catchy-as-the-clap riffs, haunting-the-chapel leads, and pro but not-too-polished production that only heightens the dark depths these Chileans plumb so powerfully. We´d deign to call it "classy" even, but this is fucking Death Metal after all! With suitably classic Death Metal cover art courtesy of Daniel Hermosilla (Nox Fragor Art), and climaxing with the 9-minute epic "Deep in Streams of Purifying Dirt", Coffin Curse crush graves and dreams alike with "Ceased to Be"!

CANCER SPREADING - Ghastly Visions CD [MEMENTO-XC]
CD version of these Italians´ sophomore full-length, previously only released on vinyl and digital format in 2016. Cancer Spreading are preaching their gospel of nihilism and self-destruction since 2006, actively and ruthlessly punishing the underground scene with a demo, an EP, a bunch of splits (w/ Children Of Technology, Fatum and Last Legion Alive, among others) and two full-length albums, the first of which, titled "The Age of Desolation", was unleashed upon mankind on CD format by us back in 2011. Their music is an apocalyptic, spine-wrenching alloy of the Crust/Metal that we oldies used to call Stenchcore back in the 80´s, and the heavier-than-thou, earth-shattering sound that made Bolt Thrower stand out as one of the most storming and most influential Death Metal acts ever. Utterly recommended for fans of the Coventry legends, as well as Deviated Instinct, Asphyx, Sacrilege, Axegrinder, Sanctum, War Master, Stormcrow...

DISRUPTED (Sweden) are back on Memento Mori!!!
Swedeath fans, rejoice: we´re extremely excited to announce that we´ll put out the CD version of the sophomore full-length album by the Swedish juggernaut known as DISRUPTED.

What this quintet formed in the small city of Ludvika back in late 2012 have on offer, is the kind of crunchy, rotten, heavy-as-a-concrete-block and genuine-to-the-bone Death Metal that their country was worldwide known for in the late 80´s and the early 90´s. Think Nihilist/Entombed, Interment, Grave and God Macabre with a healthy dose of D-beat à la more recent acts such as Bombs Of Hades or Bastard Priest, and you´ll get quite an accurate picture of what to expect.

The band will start recording the follow-up to "Morbid Death" (Memento Mori, 2015) in March, and we´re aiming at a late 2020 / early 2021 release date. Further details to follow in the coming months.
