PILE OF EXCREMENTS - Escatology CD [MEMENTO-LXV]
The loathsome debut full-length from this Greek band. Hailing from Athens, Pile of Excrements was crapped into existence when drummer Shit Eater (Necrovorous, Embrace of Thorns, Chainsaw) joined forces with guitar/bass-player and vocalist Necropervert (Nightbreed, Chainsaw) with the vile intention of delighting the listener with the aural equivalent of the nauseating stench of one hundred drains clogged with foul-smelling turds and urine. And as the title of their debut album promises, "Escatology" is exactly that! Pile of Excrements began clogging sewers last year with the Demo 2016 tape. In no uncertain terms, the duo laid bare their divinely depraved musical influences -Autopsy/Abscess, Pungent Stench, Master, Impetigo, Blood, Necrophagia, Mantas/Death, Carcass, Cianide, Massacre and Hellhammer- and completed it with a compulsive obsession with slasher/gore B-movies, shit of all kinds and high-cholesterol food. But, that demo was but a mere appetizer for the filthy feast to follow in "Escatology"! From the very first second "Bowel Rampage" shits itself into existence, it´s crystal-clear these refined and suave Greek gentlemen are all about the FILTH in capital -and gushing- letters. From there, the foulness just starts flowing, one rough and rancorous rush after another. Indeed, Pile of Excrements pile high the punk-rocking hooks so crucial to early Death Metal -that is, the original template laid out by the aforementioned masters- and keep the crush coming. It´s 15 almost-anthems in a tight and taut 40 minutes, but it´s not all short/sharp/shocked: on the six-minute "Cult of the Unibrow", the duo go relatively epic whilst keeping the emphasis on the filth... where it should be! Featuring fittingly gross cover art by Raul Fuentes (a.k.a. Mortuus) and mastering by Cruciamentum´s Dan Lowndes, Pile of Excrements make "Escatology" a masterclass in musical depravity!

WAR POSSESSION - Doomed to Chaos CD [MEMENTO-LXVI]
The highly anticipated debut full-length from this Greek squad. Hailing from the Black and Death Metal hotbed of Greece, War Possession indeed features a number of scene veterans within their ranks, including current and past members of such bands as Embrace of Thorns, Merciless Crucifixion and Wargoat. Since the band´s beginnings in 2008, they´ve been possessed by an unwavering desire to craft and perform punishing, war-themed Death Metal impervious to trends and modern standards, combining corpulent, ominously slow riffs with blasting brutality soaked in a blackened ambience. References to be made are the olden endeavors of Bolt Thrower, Demigod, Treblinka/Tiamat, Incantation, Therion, Archgoat, Imprecation and Asphyx. But while they´ve quietly made an impression across a demo, split and EP, at long last, War Possession reveals its most devastating assault in "Doomed to Chaos". Totaling 10 tracks in a lean and mean 40 minutes, "Doomed to Chaos" begins its slow lurch into undead life with an ominous intro, setting the stage for the audial apocalypse to come. War-torn atmosphere established, War Possession soon kick into caustic and crunch gear with a proud and powerful pulse not unlike a Panzer tank. No more and certainly no less, the band evince totally pure, unapologetically untarnished Death Metal songwriting that finds the right balance between linear and labyrinthine. Engaging the listener (and enemy!) at every decimated turn, the sonic canvas of "Doomed to Chaos" soon becomes a battlefield, as each song plays out the stark drama so endemic to war. Or, if you simply listen and prepare to be flattened, never giving a thought to their thematics, War Possession lurch and lunge in a most classic way, even down to the early 90´s-style production (with mastering by The Crypt´s Ted Tringo). Completed by equally classic, era-accurate artwork by Fendieart, "Doomed to Chaos" is diehard Death Metal for Death Metal diehards - for victory!

MORBID MESSIAH (Mexico) 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: MORBID MESSIAH, from Mexico.

The band was formed in 2015 after Anubis Sandoval (drums) moved from Cancun to Guadalajara, and teamed up with Roberto Trejo (guitar) and Jose Rivas (vocals). All three young musicians shared a burning passion for the authentic sound of the blossoming late 80´s / early 90´s underground Death Metal, and felt compelled to give shape to a brand new, iniquitous entity that would follow in the gods of yore´s footsteps. The band played their first live show a few months later and then proceeded to record their debut EP, suitably titled "In the Name of True Death Metal", which was self-released in October 2016 on CD format. Guillermo Lopez (bass) had already joined their ranks by then, solidifying the lineup for depraved endeavors yet to come. Fast forward into April 2017, the Polish label Godz ov War Productions gave the EP the tape treatment and all 100 copies sold out shortly after.

To depict MORBID MESSIAH´s approach to the Metal of Death is no laborious chore, for it is nothing more -and nothing less- than a dank, impenetrable, lightless, decimating and unadorned concoction of the finest, heaviest and vilest elements of bands such as Sadistic Intent, Possessed, Incantation, Grotesque, Mortem, Death and Imprecation, as well as those prevalent in the early works of their countrymates Cenotaph and Shub Niggurath.

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album by late 2018 / early 2019. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, go like MORBID MESSIAH´s Facebook page and make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).
