RUIN - Drown in Blood CD
[MEMENTO-LX]
The long-awaited debut full-length of this U.S. band. Not much is known about the anonymous aural torturers known as Ruin. The small amount of information that we do know is that the band was formed back in 1991, somewhere in the United States. Due to various members of the band being incarcerated and institutionalized, Ruin was disbanded at some point later that year. Rumors have also swirled that the band members were/are part of some sort of cult. Now free from any obstacles, the Ruin Death Metal machine was re-started again in 2015, and work began in earnest for what was to become their debut album (at last!), "Drown in Blood". With roots firmly planted in utter and complete musical devastation, Ruin´s sonic debauchery is mean, vicious, spiteful, raucous, and sickening Death Metal. Shit-heavy and strewn with shit, their long-brewing "Drown in Blood" is pure and utter ugliness enriched with doomed-out passages, crusty tempos, and sudden blasts that are meant to turn your stomach without care. Vile and viscous, filthy and foul, the influences seem to come from some sort of bastard child spawned from Hellhammer covers being slammed out by Realm of Chaos-era Bolt Thrower taking place in the jam room of Finnish sickos Abhorrence in 1989: that´s how heavy and crushing their stuff is, offering no remorse and no escape for the helpless/hapless listener. That´s how you Drown in Blood, y´know? If you´re a fan of putrid old school Death Metal and the aforementioned bands as well as Sweden´s Crematory, Rottrevore, Undergang, Demigod, Rippikoulu, Autopsy and Cianide, then you will put Ruin in the same puke-infested bucket. Memento Mori unleashes "Drown in Blood" on CD format, and toilets the world over will cower in fear!

SOULROT - Nameless Hideous Manifestations CD
[MEMENTO-LXI]
The debut full-length of this Chilean band. Hailing from the city of Valparaíso, the band was formed by guitar player JL Olmos (Betrayed, ex-Micosis, ex-Gangrenous) circa 1993-1994 but was put to rest due to JL being involved in several other projects at the time. It wasn´t until 2013 that JL joined bass player/vocalist JH Wilschrey (Sadistic Murder, Acero Letal) and they both resuscitated Soulrot, manifesting their unquestionable inclination towards the Death Metal of yore. This glorious, gangrenous resurrection resulted in the "Horrors from Beyond" demo in 2014 and the "Revelations" EP two years later. Between the two, Soulrot exhibited a lyrical inclination toward H.P. Lovecraft´s cosmogony and the preternatural, and musically inspired by old acts such as Nihilist/Entombed, Carnage, Autopsy, Grave, Necrony, Demigod, Traumatic, Carcass, Nirvana 2002 and Asphyx among others. Gutsfucked as those two recordings are, the gestating rot of "Nameless Hideous Manifestations" soundly obliterates all that came before. Bolstered by the recent addition of Daniel Fredes (Sadistic Murder) on drums, here Soulrot burl forward with a bulldozing sense of purpose, a crush-at-all-costs momentum that literally sounds teleported from 1992. Granted, this aesthetic is one that´s been well utilized (and abused) for the past decade, but as with anything worth experiencing, authenticity trumps all, and Soulrot bleed the ancient ways deeper than most. Simply witness the dynamic yet dread-draped songcraft across their debut album: these Nameless Hideous Manifestations demand obeisance!

MARTYRDOOM - Grievous Psychosis CD
[MEMENTO-LXII]
In our endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal, Memento Mori summons yet another ponderous beast from the crypts and unleashes it upon mankind: the debut album of Poland´s Martyrdoom, "Grievous Psychosis". Conceived in Warsaw back in 2010, the band went through some lineup changes until they established a solid formation in 2014, including Sociak (vocals), Marol (guitar), Młynar (guitar / vocals), Artz (bass) and Wasyl (drums). Blending complex, blast-beat driven, darkened Death Metal with slow Doom passages, the band draws its main influences from the likes of Obituary, Immolation, Rippikoulu, Autopsy, Demilich, Triptykon, Cannibal Corpse, Incantation, Hooded Menace, Grave, Disma and Dead Congregation, but they spew all those influences out with renewed vigor. As far as non-musical inspirations go, their lyrics mostly revolve about old school horror/gore movies, personal struggles and the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Bloodthirsty and dripping with menace, these Poles armed with a thorough knowledge of ancient Death Metal create something vile and unearthly. Eschewing all trends, Martyrdoom trudge defiantly, blasting their noxious blend of Death Metal and Doom Metal music, urging cohorts to surrender to them at once. Eight tracks of visceral mayhem are channelled through what sounds like cavernous labyrinths and are as unrelenting as they are haunting. "Grievous Psychosis" is the sound of demons in your head coming back to take control of what was always theirs.
