SEDIMENTUM (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: SEDIMENTUM, from Canada.

SEDIMENTUM was born in 2018 when a few friends who, for a little while, wanted to play filthy Death Metal got together in the extreme coldness of Québec City, Canada. After releasing a critically acclaimed demo in 2019 and a couple of split 7" EP´s, the band started working on their debut full-length album. The actual lineup consists of Alexis Élément-Plamondon on guitar and vocals, Alexandre Landry on bass, Mathieu Lépine on drums and vocals, and Ulysse Nadeau-Paré on guitar, and all four of them are more than ready to start playing live after two years of forced quietness due to the pandemic.

Theirs is an atavistic and gnarly form of Death Metal mainly influenced by old Finnish and English bands that strikes the listener as being straight up summoned inside unbounded, dreary catacombs from a long buried past. Pounding blastbeats, insufferable slow parts and weird Finnish riffs blend well together in their take on modern Death Metal. But make no mistake: SEDIMENTUM ain´t just about cavernous ambience. They ain´t just about dank atmosphere: their music is filled to the brim with memorable, utterly heavy riffs that suck you in and spit you out into a vortex of putridity where all you can do is wallow in the sludge and gasp for air until your certain demise.

SEDIMENTUM´s debut full-length is due out on October 24th, 2022. Memento Mori will unleash the CD version and Me Saco Un Ojo Records will take care of the LP, tape and digital versions. Prior to that, the band and Me Saco Un Ojo Records have agreed to launch a new demo tape that will be out very soon. Further details to follow shortly. Meanwhile, make sure to give them a like on Facebook and listen to their previous output (links below).

ECTOPLASMA - Inferna Kabbalah CD [MEMENTO-CXI]
The highly anticipated 4th full-length by this Greek band. Hailing from Athens, the band was initiated by Giannis Grim (Carnal Dread, Humanity Zero, Death Trap, Vultur) and George Wolf (Forced In, Dismal Chant, Vultur) when Carnal Dread and Forced In shared the bill at a local show back in the grip of winter of 2012. Both musicians being real zealots of what Death Metal was known for back in the late 80´s and the early 90´s -in other words, no tech wankery and no crystal-clear production- they rapidly entered the studio just to start jamming, and ultimately gave birth to Ectoplasma. Shortly after, the "Everlasting Deathreign" demo was discharged upon mankind, granting the band some following among diehard fans of unpolished Death Metal. On subsequent releases (the "Spitting Coffins" debut full-length and the split tape with Hatevomit), the band kept on perfecting their craft and obtaining more adherents of their underground creed, reaching a more mature sound by the time the "Skeletal Lifeforms" EP was released in late 2016 (tape format) / early 2017 (CD format), in which Ectoplasma shamelessly manifested their devotion to muddy, organic, disgusting, bone-breaking and rotten-to-the-core Death Metal influenced by the early offerings of bands such as Autopsy, Baphomet, Asphyx, Morta Skuld, Grave, Demigod, Gutted, Death and Judecca, only with their own personal twist. With the addition of Dion K. Alastor (Vultur) on guitars and Giannis Botsis (Embrace of Thorns, Thou Art Lord) on drums, it was with their sophomore full-length, 2018´s "Cavern of Foul Unbeings" -released to international acclaim by Memento Mori, the band´s current label home- that Ectoplasma kicked their crusade against inane, overproduced "Death Metal" into overdrive. Reeking of the same characteristic grime and decrepitude of that album, the band´s third, absolutely gutsfucking full-length, 2019´s "White-Eyed Trance", saw Ectoplasma entering concept-album territory, but only in lyrical concept, as the musical side of the album stayed true to their their now-signature world-eating sound. Justifiably so, "White-Eyed Trance" reaped international acclaim as an unabashed statement of classic Death Metal songwriting. Naturally, 2020 also threw the world of Ectoplasma into upheaval, as their lineup was pared back to the duo of founder Giannis Grim on vocals & bass and guitarist/drummer Dimitris Sakkas, who holds a wealth of experience in the Metal underground, currently maintaining the bands Inhibitions, Humanity Zero and Slough of Despair, among many, many others. Thankfully, the latter is a fine fit for Ectoplasma, as the resultant "Inferna Kabbalah" is arguably the band´s most punishing record yet. It´s a curious balance -the execution sounds razor-sharp and precise when placed within such a soundfield, with the more frequent bouts of speed given extra devastation and the breakdowns even more so- but one that pays off in spades, as their songwriting continues to thrive within strictly traditional parameters, and this relative "refinement" only makes it that much more powerful. Thus, it´s not unreasonable to view "Inferna Kabbalah" in the same headspace as Bolt Thrower´s righteous "...For Victory", except Ectoplasma surely have their own tank-treaded crush! Delving ever deeper into the realms of horror, Ectoplasma receive yet another stunning cover art by the masterful Mörtuus. Read their "Inferna Kabbalah" or weap!

RAVENOUS DEATH - Visions from the Netherworld CD [MEMENTO-CXII]
The astonishing 2nd full-length by this Mexican band. Hailing from the vast Death Metal hotbed of Mexico, Ravenous Death feature current members of such other bands as Remains, Demonic Manifestation and Death´s Forsaken. The band´s embryo was brought forth in 2016 during the recording of Remains´ 3rd full-length in Mexico City, when vocalist/guitar player Miguel Angel and drummer Esteban Salcedo toyed with the idea of creating a Death Metal band influenced by Vomitory, Torture Division and the likes. Later on, both musicians shared their vision with lead guitarist Enrique Fray, and the three of them agreed to push the idea forward and carry it out as a side-project due to the commitments they all had with their main bands. Soon after, Enrique and Miguel Angel began writing songs for the newborn abomination, and the three members decided to name the band after a Vomitory song titled "The Ravenous Dead". Fast forward to October 2016, and the recording of Ravenous Death´s debut demo/EP, "Ominous Deathcult", is finalized (although not released as a Bandcamp download until March 2017), including five songs chock full of rotting maliciousness that showed great poise in combining blasting brutality, crushing heaviness, somber ambience and fierce intensity, with the lyrical themes revolving around death, occultism, blasphemy and other classic topics of the olden Metal of Death. On May 13th, 2017, the band made their first live performance in the city of Guadalajara. For this occasion, two new members were recruited -namely, bass player Alejandro Mendez and guitarist Diego Gomez- leaving Miguel Angel on vocal duties alone. After the excellent crowd response, both Alejandro and Diego joined the band as official members. Emboldened by this patient momentum, and featuring new vocalist Victor Mercado, Ravenous Death at last released their debut album, 2019´s "Chapters of an Evil Transition", courtesy of Memento Mori. Aptly titled, "Chapters of an Evil Transition" indeed displayed the band´s transition into an evil Death Metal juggernaut. The album found great favor among the Death Metal faithful, for it absolutely bled the molten-yet-mildewed essence of 90´s Metal of Death. Now Ravenous Death are back to fuck fashion and especially fickle tastes with the longer and stronger "Visions from the Netherworld". Not for nothing is the album titled as such: "Visions from the Netherworld" is an epic 63 minutes, and conveys a moodiness perfectly suited to these slicing and sluicing songs. The atmosphere is hideous, evil as ever but without any cloying "cavernous" touches; the production is professional and powerful, skillfully balancing gleam and grime; the leads are more prominent, and blackened to a crisp; and the songwriting itself twists and turns and twists some more, opening infinite labyrinths but always with a (crooked) direction in sight. Whereas the previous full-length displayed trace elements of Mexican forebears Shub Niggurath as well as Sadistic Intent, Seance, old Grave, 90´s Immolation, 90´s Vader, Demigod and Vomitory, here do Ravenous Death strike upon new-yet-old ground that can only be qualified as Ominous Rotten Death Metal. And as its epic length suggests, "Visions from the Netherworld" is indeed a concept album as always; the cover art, once again by the masterful Mörtuus, represents all the twisted visions that the band have about Hell, the underworld, punishment, etc. Enclosed in era-authentic mastering courtesy of Loïc Fontaine at Krucyator Studio (France), Ravenous Death have eclipsed their momentous debut with their "Visions from the Netherworld"!

LEATHER GLOVE - Perpetual Animation / Skin on Glass CD [MEMENTO-CXIII]
CD version of the debut full-length, previously only available on vinyl/tape/digital since its March 2019 release, by this U.S. Death/Doom Metal juggernaut, including the "Skin on Glass" demo (2016) as bonus, which has been remastered for an even more pleasurable aural experience. Renowned U.S. extreme Metal sound engineer Greg Wilkinson (Autopsy, Brainoil, Deathgrave, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves at Sea) owner and founder/operator of the legendary Earhammer Studios in Oakland, CA (Noothgrush, Necrot, Autopsy, Vastum, Acephalix, Mortuous, Undergang...) brings you his first ever solo full-length effort under the Leather Glove moniker. Standing somewhere between the caveman tank-like Death Metal approach of Coffins and Undergang, and the hallucinogenic sonic derailment of bands like Swans and Zeni Geva, in this debut long player of deviant and shapeshifting Death/Doom Metal destruction Greg is aided by drummers Chad Gailey (Necrot, Vastum, Mortuous, Atrament...) and Dustin Ferris (Apraxic, Pleasure Cross, Engorged...) to unleash 30 minutes of cerebral and disgusting aural mayhem, smashing together Death Metal, D-beat, Crust, Sludge, Doom and Industrial noise to summon a low-end monster of deranged experimentalism and unspeakable heaviness. Ripping guitar solos laid down by bastion Bay Area Metal shredders like Sean McGrath (Ghoul, Impaled), Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Ulthar, Extremity), Eric Cutler (Autopsy) and Danny Coralles (Autopsy, Abcess) round out a debut release of absolutely incinerating intensity: a sonic tapestry of pure oppression. If life is the waiting room to hell, then this is the bellowing sounds encapsulating every molecule in the room.
