GORGOSAUR - Lurking Among Corpses CD [MEMENTO-L]
The terrific debut full-length from yet another promising, up and coming underground act: Gorgosaur, from Sweden. Formed back in 2013 in Malmö with the aim of creating total death, this duo comprised of Martin Schönherr (drums and vocals) and Åsa Hagström (guitar, bass and vocals) put out a demo titled "Gashes and Demise" last year, and it took us less than ten minutes (the total running time of the 3-song demo) to thoroughly feast on the loathsome, blood-soaked and purulent Death Metal with a penchant for assorted tempos and the genuine stench of the late 80´s / early 90´s that these deathsters have on offer. There is no denying these guys pay homage to the very pioneers of the ancient Swedish way (namely Nihilist, Carnage and Grave), but one can also find traces of the gory filth of Autopsy, Carcass, Deranged, Necrony and Cadaver in their music. All in all, Gorgosaur channel a sound that´s devoid of cheesy melodies or just anything that might interrupt their seething, rollicking momentum. "Lurking Among Corpses" is not for the faint of heart, but for the underground mongers whose passion for old school Death Metal performed with venomous intensity surpasses everything else. Recorded and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg at the legendary Sunlight Studio (Stockholm, Sweden). Mastered by Ted Tringo at The Ancient Way Mastering (U.S.A.). Deliciously old-fashioned, morbid artwork by Mark Riddick.

WITCH VOMIT - A Scream from the Tomb Below CD [MEMENTO-LI]
If there´s one place in the U.S. where underground Death Metal is brimming with talent as of lately, that´s Portland (Oregon). Bands such as Torture Rack, Sempiternal Dusk, Symptom, Ritual Necromancy, Shroud of the Heretic or Triumvir Foul have been critically acclaimed worldwide, and now it´s time to add a new name to the list: Witch Vomit. Formed back in 2012 and featuring members of other local acts such as Torture Rack and Brain Rot, these disciples of rottenness and putrefaction have just excreted their debut full-length album, "A Scream from the Tomb Below", that´s a filth-ridden, skin-peeling and gory mess of ancient Swedish Death Metal and Death/Doom Metal influenced by the likes of Nihilist/Entombed, Autopsy, Carnage, Impetigo, Convulse, Grave, Asphyx, Incantation, Bolt Thrower, Demigod, early Darkthrone, Crematory and Disgrace. The music is an exercise in throbbing, pulsating Death Metal that will scar your soul and turn it inside out. The intent is malicious and evil, the air is rife with a sewer-like stench and the sound is darker than your past. "A Scream from the Tomb Below" could very well be this year´s underground Death Metal highlight, for Witch Vomit do everything right by the long-established underground standards, and foul it up some more just for the extra repulsive value. Recorded and mixed at Red Lantern Studios (U.S.A.). Mastered by Damian Herring (of Horrendous fame) at Subterranean Watchtower Studios (U.S.A.). Cover art by Matt Stikker. Layout by Ola Sjöberg (of God Macabre fame).

ERUCTATION - The Fumes of Putrefaction (1992-1995) CD [MEMENTO-LII]
The history of underground Death Metal is crammed with bands that never got to make it past the demo stage. However, only a handful of them actually deserved much better in terms of both longevity and recognition. Such was the case with the obscure yet amazing Swedish band Eructation, whose "Demo #1" (1992) was an unquestionable force to be reckoned with that many a fan of the genre praise as one of the most remarkable yet hideous gems from the times of yore. "The Fumes of Putrefaction (1992-1995)" compiles the 3 songs from their cult "Demo #1" (1992), 5 songs from a late 1993 recording session (meant to be out in 1994 as an EP that unfortunately never got to see the light of day) and 2 songs from the last recording session in 1995. Those expecting the typical Swedeath trademark sound will be extremely disappointed, as these Swedes drew their influences from the fine days of the old Floridian scene (Morbid Angel, Death, Atheist, Brutality, Malevolent Creation...) and other European acts such as Morgoth, Asphyx and Incubator. Catchy yet intricate enough riffage, raspy vocals, a pounding rhythm section, a lavish dose of old school madness... This CD is nothing short of just anything that any fan of anachronistic Death Metal could ever wish for!!! All songs slightly retouched (volume only!) for an even more pleasurable and homogeneous listening experience. Liner notes by bass player Tobias Karlsson. Enhanced original cover art of the official 1992 demo and layout by Ola Sjöberg (of God Macabre fame).
