MUTILATION RITES Post New Demo Tracks
NYC black metallers Mutilation Rites have finally finished recording a few new tracks for their highly-anticipated (at least 'round these parts) first demo, and have posted 'em on Myspace for your listening pleasure. Head on over to their site and soak in three songs' worth of suffocating, heavily distorted riffs baptized in vintage Scandinavian fire and ice, inescapably dark shards of melody, and demonically rasped vocals from New York's most promising new underground black metal band. Ya heard.
As I've said before, I caught MR live at Richmond's Heart of Winter Fest in January, and goddamn did they slay. " They brought total aural devastation, nasty with primeval riffs and impassioned vocals. They were ugly, fast, and distorted, just as a New York black metal band SHOULD be (are you listening, Liturgy?)"
And I think it goes without saying that you need to go LISTEN TO THIS FUCKING BAND.
