BERATOR To Unleash "Elysian Inferno" EP on Dark Descent Records!


Four years after their devastating debut demo, Chicago death merchants BERATOR vomit forth 20 minutes of fierce, old school black/death on coke via Dark Descent Records. In an age where an over-polished sound is the norm, Elysian Inferno delivers a welcome reminder of just how ferocious and vehement extreme metal can be. Guitarist Richard Olsen, who left behind his Profanatica duties to focus on BERATOR full-time, stresses the importance of production: “The BERATOR EP was tracked live, just me and Dan (drums) in his studio, and we built around those live tracks for the record, which in itself, gives it a level of raw power you can’t get from a click. Tim Pearson (bass, ex-The Chasm) and Pat Clancy (guitar, ex- Nachtmystium) then added their parts. The sound is entrancing, excruciating, and insane, for people who appreciate forward, to the point, nonstop riffs. It’s a seamless record meant to be heard as 20 some-odd straight minutes of rhythm and violence.” Dark Descent Records will release Elysian Inferno on CD, digital, vinyl, and cassette formats on June 10. Elysian Inferno Tracklist: 1. Sultans of Incest 2. Onslaught to Absolution 3. Dead Rats 4. War Lust 5. Final Crucifixion 6. Swine Cult The band will embark on a US tour in late May, including a performance at Decibel Magazine’s Metal and Beer Festival in Philadelphia. “BERATOR is ready to unleash this long-awaited reign of terror, for our upcoming Venomous Onslaught tour with Craven Idol this May/June 2022” Venomous Onslaught tour dates: May 30th – Milwaukee, WI @ Xray Arcade May 31st – Chicago, IL @ LiveWire Lounge June 1st—Indiana, IN @ Black Circle Brewing June 2nd- Detroit, MI @ Old Miami June 3rd—Cincinnati, OH @ Junkers Tavern June 4th—Rochester, NY @ Photocity Music Hall June 5th— Worcester, MA @ Ralph’s June 6th—Providence, RI @ Dusk June 7th –Brooklyn, NY @ Saint Vitus Bar June 8th – Washington DC @ Pie Shop June 9-11th – Philadelphia, PA @ Decibel Metal and Beer Fest
