DECREPIT RITUALS hallmarks an era of a revitalised DEFAMER. After the success of their debut 2009 album CHASM, subsequent touring over Australia and New Zealand, and the departure of guitarist, Mitchell Rogers; DEFAMER return at full length with eight rituals of decrepitude.
DECREPIT RITUALS offers a refined and distilled dose of death metal. Making the executive decision to remain with one guitarist, Sam Alcock has twisted contemporary death metal with the older schooled sound of the yesteryear. Guitar riffs invert at a bile-evoking pace into fever pitched insanity. Exposure to DECREPIT RITUALS leaves one unsettled, broiled, and disparaged.
DECREPIT RITUALS recorded across latter 2011; DEFAMER has again invoked Ean Redman for recording and mixing duties, along with guitarist Sam Alcock. increasing his involvement in the process. DEFAMER ensured meticulous standards were in place to capture the abominating sonic orgies and secure with conviction. Mastering was finalised by Jason “PC” Fuller at Goatsounds, Melbourne to mark the final ritual in the process.
