Drawn And Quartered to release "Congregation Pestilence", due out on July 2nd.
Drawn And Quartered resurges to transmit its newest outbreak of evil, Congregation Pestilence, due out July 02nd on vinyl, CD, and digital formats via Krucyator Productions.
A formidable and influential force in the domain of extreme metal, Drawn and Quartered arrived on the scene nearly three decades ago in 1992 under the name Plague Bearer. A year later, the dark death metal group changed their name to Drawn and Quartered; the guitarist Kelly would later revive Plague Bearer as a separate project in 1999.
Forever underground, Drawn and Quartered perhaps have not achieved the level of recognition that other contemporary death metal legends have in their possession. But is it a touchstone to downplay the Seattle horde’s weight? Well, the awe-inspiring discography of 7 critically acclaimed full-lengths, a sprinkling of mini releases, and decades of mutilated live obliterations should be self-evident to determine their death metal hunger and mastery.
On the imminent 08th LP, Congregation Pestilence, Drawn and Quartered stick to their guns without de-escalating the branded frenetic motion, interminable aggression, cyclonic complexity, or unfathomable darkness, and legitimately, the death metal veterans consider it as their strongest studio offering to date. Having new songs written for a split that never eventuated and numbers already performed live, this opus oozes a primordial celebration of violence and devilry.
