CHESTCRUSH to release VDELYGMIA this July!

“Vdelygmia” is the second release and first full-length by Edinburgh’s Chestcrush, the solo project by Evangelos Vasilakos . The Greek-born musician has recently published his first demo that received praises from underground metal community and was then physically released by two European labels and sold out quickly afterwards. On this demo, Chestcrush presented their unique and crushing style of Blackened Death Metal and Grindcore, influenced by raging Old School Black Metal and a shattering Sludge / Post Metal. And now the time has come for the world to witness “Vdelygmia” in its utterly terrifying yet fascinating might.

On “Vdelygmia” Chestcrush reduces melodic influence on a necessary amount, and sets its focus on total sonic annihilation of a listener with vast and severe arsenal of sound weaponry of cover bombing blast beats, napalm burning guitar riffs and blood chilling war cries. Nine anthems of terror and hate lyrically devoted to coping with own mental and physical health tragedies (the band name chosen for a reason) and unbearable abhorrence to the current political situation in Evangelos motherland Greece.

Title “Vdelygmia” is a Greek word originally spelled “ Βδελυγμία“ which means “abomination”, “filth” and “repulsion” of extreme levels and can be used both to define the feeling and a person, who is sorely corrupted and depraved. And this title completely reflects the musical part of the album which is so beautifully disgusting, violent, horrifyingly brutal and stunningly ugly as a nearly perfect Blackened Death Metal / Grindcore album can be.
