Bay Area death metal quartet EXTREMITY is lining up to issue their debut LP, Extremely Fucking Dead, through 20 Buck Spin in early April, and the outfit has just deployed the album’s gory “Chalice Of Pus” through a premiere at Decibel Magazine.
EXTREMITY’s lineup of Bay Area veterans, Shelby Lermo (Vastum, Ulthar), Aesop Dekker (Worm Ouroboros, Ludicra, Agalloch), Marissa Martinez-Hoadley (Cretin, Repulsion), and Erika Osterhout (Necrosic, Scolex, Trepanation), stirs the salaciously sanguine death and grind sewage on Extremely Fucking Dead to a crepitating clamor of cacophonous cruelty.
Decibel spills forth “Chalice Of Pus” from the LP, adjoined by an interrogation of Martinez-Hoadley and Osterhout. The mag calls out the record’s, “ungodly morbid destruction,” continuing, “Whether rending limbs with trem-picked, blastbeat-riddled dirges reminiscent of old school NYDM, or pummeling your brainmeat until it bruises and calcifies into something like caveman coprolite, a la early Grave, EXTREMITY clearly know their way around death metal.”
EXTREMITY will ravage the West Coast in support of Extremely Fucking Dead, beginning with their debut live performance, support Hammers Of Misfortune in San Francisco on April 13th. Later in the month, EXTREMITY embarks on their first tour together supporting death metal legends Asphyx. The tour runs from April 25th through 30th, with shows in San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver.

Gestating in the twisted bowels of the Bay Area for six years, only now, in 2017, has EXTREMITY dislodged itself from the musty climes of obscurity to contaminate the American metal cesspool. Like a jaundiced plume drifting up from a fetid swamp, on Extremely Fucking Dead the four-piece infect death metal with odiously oozing intentions. From the grisly gore metal of “Crepuscular Crescendo” to the Bolt Thrower-ravaged plunder permeating “Bestial Destiny,” EXTREMITY presents a simultaneously studied and loosely devastating specter of death metal cited from the genre’s many epicenters in America, Scandinavia, the UK and beyond
