MEPHITIC GRAVE (Hungary) 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: MEPHITIC GRAVE, from Hungary.

Formed in 2018 by Zoli (guitars) and Balázs (drums), initially under the monicker Mothrot, it wasn´t after Knot (guitars) and Ádám (bass/vocals) joined the band that they morphed into MEPHITIC GRAVE and the Lovecraftian universe of cosmic horror based Death Metal welcomed a new entity. Their shared adoration of the classic Finndeath scene and the mighty ancient U.S. bands settled their musical approach: unrefined, sickening and miasmatic Death Metal that oozes viscous matter and is drenched in derangement. Their debut album, "Into the Atrium of Inhuman Morbidity", put the band on the map of current, underground Death Metal in 2021. Since then, they´ve been working on new aural madness to dive deeper into the dreadful tones from beyond.

FFO: Abhorrence, Autopsy, Funebre, Grave, Obituary, Purtenance, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel...

MEPHITIC GRAVE´s sophomore full-length is due out in the second half of 2023. Memento Mori will unleash the CD version and Desiccated Productions will take care of the tape version. 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).

INNARDS (Portugal) 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: INNARDS, from Portugal.

INNARDS was brought forth by Hugo Andremon, former member of several acts (Grog, The Sorcerer, Filii Nigrantium Infernalium, Hellfuck, Di.Soul.Ved, Simbiose...), in March 2017. After the release of the debut CD with his solo project, The Sorcerer, in 2014, Andremon felt the need to return to his origins: pure Death Metal with Grindcore and Gore elements, and INNARDS was the best name he could have come up with, since it truly represents the band´s musical approach: viscerality. While searching for band members to achieve a strong lineup and play live, Andremon wrote and recorded four songs that were sent to a handful of labels in order to get a record deal, and it was Transcending Obscurity Records that signed the band. The resulting EP, "Back from the Grave, Straight in Your Face!!", was released to critical acclaim in early 2020 and it already featured two well-known local scenesters, namely Rui Gil (ex-Necrose) on bass, who became a full-time band member ever since, and Rolando Barros (Grog, ex-Sacred Sin...) as session drummer.

It´s fairly easy to describe the variety of Death Metal that INNARDS present: it´s gnarly, savage, rotten-to-the-core and horror-themed Metal of Death of the so-called old school kind, deeply rooted in the late 80´s / early 90´s Floridian style and fleshed out with the abrasive fury of Grindcore elements that translates into the sort of old-timey, quintessential brutality that´s hard to come across in modern times.

FFO: early Death, Repulsion, Massacre, early Carcass, early Obituary, Impetigo, early Grave...

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length in 2023. 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).

RITUAL MASS - It Ever Turns CD!!!
We´re stoked to announce that we´ll put out a compilation, titled "It Ever Turns", that will collect all the material spawned by the U.S. band RITUAL MASS so far, all of which was previously never available on CD format: "Ritual Mass" demo (2017), "Abhorred in the Eyes of God" EP (2019) and "Descent/Sepulcher" single (2021).

There is no better description of their aural assault than the words used by our friends at Grizzly Butts when they reviewed the band´s 2019 EP: "If you´ve ever picked up the early Master tapes where they´ve mixed in the non-triggered drum takes and imagined what those thrashing, punkish Axegrinder-esque chunks might sound like reborn by way of a more perfectionism-bound group (i.e. Tomb Mold) then ratcheted up to ridiculous body-in-the-trunk heaviness (i.e. Coffins) you´ll understand why Ritual Mass are an instant thumbs up from my perspective. They´re not a deathcrust band, but they could hang with ´em, they´re not a "caveman" thug merch-meme death metal band (but they could hang with ´em), and it seems the angle these guys are aiming for is a solid enough mix of simple groovin´ and easygoing pure death metal."

"It Ever Turns" is due out on October 24th, 2022. Memento Mori will unleash the CD version and Caligari Records will take care of the tape version. Further details to follow in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, check them out on Bandcamp (link below).
