Ahead of its release through 20 Buck Spin next month, ACEPHALIX – featuring members of Vastum, Necrot, Depressor, and more – offers a terrorizing indication of the horror their new Decreation LP delivers a premiere of the album’s “God Is Laughing.”
ACEPHALIX‘ Decreation was recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Vastum, Necrot, Ghoul), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Obituary, Black Breath), and completed with artwork by Adam Burke (Occultation, Loss, Gatecreeper, Artificial Brain). With each release, the ACEPHALIX horde grows more intense, vicious and bestial. Decreation is the culmination of five years of dormancy, letting loose upon the Earth the calamitous consequence of pent-up wrath.
20 Buck Spin will release Decreation on LP, CD, and digital formats September 22nd, a must-endure recording for devotees to the works of Vastum, Master, Necrot, Entombed, and Discharge. Find preorders for physical wares HERE and digital preorders HERE.
The rotten corpse of death metal horde ACEPHALIX, the Bay Area’s beast of barbarism, has been re-animated. Abnormally deceased since the band’s Southern Lord-released five years ago, Deathless Master, the crushing return of Decreation leaves no bone unbroken and no skull intact. Foul American death metal maggotry eating back to life coagulated remains of hardcore’s guts. Opener “Upon This Altar” rages with d-beat ferocity morphing into a slithering puzzle of pierced flesh. Primitive savagery pervades on “Suffer (Life In Fragments)” through to the cro-magnon battering of “Excremental Offerings.” All the while an obscure weirdness that characterized the idiosyncratic deformities of certain Cannibal Corpse, Nocturnus, and Death moments arises out of the ACEPHALIX tomb.
