Deformatory Continue Their Harrowing Tale Of Galactic Domination With “Summoning The Cosmic Devourer


Ottawa’s Deformatory delivers another slab from their concept album depicting an interdimensional horde seeking to consume the essence of planetary life. This narrative dives deeper into the scenery that was originally created in their previous album, “Malediction” (2016). “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” is broken up into three chapters and the band explains how their next single “Summoning The Cosmic Devourer” fits in:


“This chapter (II. Incursion: The Prototypal Eschaton) is written from the perspective of the Grand Arkitekt as he executes his compulsion for interdimensional domination. Witness his journey through Xuul ‘Ka, the cosmic portal he conjures to tunnel into dimensions, and the vision he has of the coming apocalypse for the Earth star. The single “Summoning The Cosmic Devourer” explores the dark art of creating Xuul ‘Ka. All life stars possess the ingredients required for the Conjuring and the path to Summoning.”


Together since 2010, the duo of drummer Neil Grandy and vocalist/guitarist Charlie Leduc easily create this maniacal strain of death metal while jamming together at their rehearsal space. Some songs were written in a single jam session with very few revisions taking place. The result is a raw and unfettered journey into carefully crafted death metal chaos.

The complexity of the lyrical concept together with the unrelenting brutality of the music makes for one hell of a sonic ride – one that you don’t want to miss out on.


Best suited for fans of extreme death metal and old-school black metal, Deformatory is recommended listening for those who enjoy Origin, Hate Eternal, and Cryptopsy.


The album “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” will be released on September 3, 2021. Album pre-order - http://deformatory.bandcamp.com
