• mutilation rites Harbinger (LP, £26.95)

    label: Gilead Media

    GATEFOLD LP. 2014 saw the release of the second full-length from Brooklyn’s MUTILATION RITES. Although originally released by Prosthetic Records, HARBINGER has now been re-pressed by the band themselves as a gatefold LP. As long-time friends of ours, Gilead Media is helping them with distribution on this repress. Following their highly praised first LP, Empyrean, Mutilation Rites return with an album that pushes their style of filthy black metal further into the shadows with Harbinger. Along with the addition of bassist Ryan Jones (assisting with vocal duties) there also comes a noticeable death metal element to the songs on the album. Everything here is grosser, chunkier, and trashier than anything they’ve done before. + 4/5 Metalsucks review “On Harbinger, Mutilation Rites somehow manages to take some of the most abrasive, ugly, nasty-sounding genres, and make the result feel way more accessible than one might expect.” + “Mutilation Rites render the idea of innovation less important by simply writing and performing the best songs they possibly can. But listen closer to the roaring sounds that come flooding out of the speakers; on Harbinger, black metal is just a starting point for something even greater” - Treble Zine. + “By closer Conspiracy Of Silence it’s obvious that Brooklyn is more than capable of representing black metal on the world’s stage.” - Teamrock. 1 black pyramid 2 exhaling or breathing in 3 tactical means of ouroborus 4 gravitational collapse 5 contaminate 6 suffer the children 7 ignus fatuus 8 conspracy of silence
