With the imminent release of their face-raping first full-length now closing in, Garden State’s favorite death metal troupe, GRIMUS, invite you to dislocate various appendages with a full stream of Omnicide now available through their official BandCamp page at THIS LOCATION.
Omnicide delivers thirty-six ravaging minutes of devastating death metal barbarity. Said the Wicked Channel in a recent review of the record, “From the deep, guttural vocals straight from the bowels of hell to the razor sharp guitar riffs and precision blastbeat drum work, GRIMUS has everything that a death metal fan could ever dream up in their worst nightmares,” while New-Transcendence, in a perfect 10/10 rating, agrees commending the record’s, “gut-splitting slams and bone-shattering breakdowns. The sheer amount of heaviness prevalent on Omnicide is hard to put into words.” Adds The New Noise, “If you are a fan of Bloodbath, The Acacia Strain, Behemoth, Beneath the Massacre, or Whitechapel, you will enjoy GRIMUS.”
Tracked and mixed by guitarist Marco Bobadilla at Crimson Recording and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Beneath the Massacre, Job For A Cowboy etc.) at West West Side Music, Omnicide is a testament to man’s inherently bloodthirsty nature and a virtual soundtrack to “the age of none.” Spawned of death metal masters Bloodbath, Hate Eternal and Behemoth yet with the cutting edge stylings of The Acacia Strain and Whitechapel, all backed with a muscular New Jerseyhardcore surge, GRIMUS is an act who will appeal to diehards of crushing, nihilistic death metal old and new.
Omnicide will be available via major digital outlets, such as iTunes and Amazon, on Tuesday, June 25, 2013. Details on a limited press of physical copies will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the band will be playing a hometown record release show this Saturday in Elizabeth, with additional live performances booked. Confirmed dates thus far are included below.
If you missed it, you can still witness a visual encounter with GRIMUS drummer JP Andrade (also of Windfaerer, Allegaeon) showcasing his blast patterns via SickDrummer RIGHT HERE.
