Canadian Death Metal Maniacs DEFORMATORY Hold Nothing Back With New EP “Harbinger”
Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Deformatory unrelentingly summons their creative darkness to deliver another slab of ferocious Canadian death metal in the upcoming new EP “Harbinger”. The powerhouse duo of guitarist/vocalist Charlie Leduc and drummer Neil Grandy refuse to acquiesce to the weakness of modern metal, they reach deep into the abyss of infernal intensity to deliver a new offering of blistering madness.
Listeners can get a sneak peek of what’s in store this fall, as the band has released a teaser on YouTube at https://youtu.be/jlb68arCmjI
This pummeling four-track EP, as devastating as it is succinct, follows their destructive 2013 debut “In The Wake of Pestilence”, the crushing 2016 follow-up “Malediction” and the vortex of insanity that is 2021’s masterpiece “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon”. According to the band, the lyrical inspiration was derived from an internal, vitriolic response to current world affairs and an innate compulsion to destroy. The writing style for these lyrics is more poetic and concealed in allegory to maintain their dark & destructive aesthetic.
The band shares their thoughts on the album and what’s in store for fans, new and old alike:
“It’s a violently heavy and jam-packed album that has a little bit of every aggressive genre wrapped in brutal death metal packaging. We know that fans of all extreme metal spectrums will find at least one thing in it to enjoy.”
Paying the utmost attention to all the details, the artwork and concept of the album were just as important as the music and songwriting. Every audio and visual release that is connected to this recording helps the listener dive deeper into the totality of their creation.
A sonically relentless death metal experience, Deformatory is recommended for fans of Hate Eternal, Angelcorpse, and Vitriol.
This is unequivocal vitriolic rage. This is uncompromising animosity. This is not trendy. This is not a safe place. This is a maelstrom of maniacal death metal. This is DEFORMATORY. You have been warned. Heed the Harbinger’s call.
“Harbinger” is being released on September 13, 2022.
