witch vomit 2024

Portland-based death metal outfit Witch Vomit, known for their previous albums Abhorrent Rapture and Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave, have solidified their standing as a leading force in contemporary US death metal. The band's relentless and aggressive approach, showcased in their earlier works, has earned them a reputation for delivering meticulously crafted and chaotic carnage, featuring hooks that tear through flesh.

Their third album, Funeral Sanctum, which will be released through 20 Buck Spin on April 5th, sees the group expanding the dark melodicism embedded in their brutal sound. Tracks like "Blood Of Abomination" and "Dominion Of A Darkened Realm" channel a demonic evil reminiscent of early Dissection, radiating in a frozen darkness. While maintaining the gore-soaked ferocity characteristic of US death metal, the band shares members with labelmates Torture Rack, among others.

Recorded and mixed in November 2023 by Evan Mersky at Red Lantern Studios, Funeral Sanctum is mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio. The album features cover art by Matt Stikker, additional art by Lucas Forte, photography by Kendra Farber, and layout by Dan Fried.
