CARNAL TOMB - Rotten Remains LP (CAV004LP)
Limited to 300 copies on black vinyl
The skull-splitting debut full-length from a German band that perpetuate the odor of vintage Death Metal. Hailing from the bowels of Berlin, Carnal Tomb started out as a duo (Corpse Ripper on bass / vocals and Cryptic Tormentor on vocals / guitars / programming) in 2014 and recently turned into a quartet with the addition of Vomitchrist on drums and Lobotomizer on guitars, only to confer more heaviness and tightness upon their slimy, downtuned, putrescent Death Metal that´s buzzsaw-driven and riddled with gruesome melodies in the best tradition of ancient ghouls such as Nihilist / Entombed, Autopsy, Dismember, Funebre, Grave, Crematory, Convulse, Fleshcrawl and Carnage. Carnal Tomb infuse fresh life into a genre that´s started to stagnate. Their music is dripping with vigor, without compromising on the intent or underground aesthetics. Featuring guest vocals by Johan Jansson (Interment, Moondark) and Mahne (Deserted Fear), visually empowered with a fantastic artwork and layout done by Cesar Valladares, and mastered by Javier Felez at Moontower Studios.
