OSSUARIUM seep out of the depths of Portland, Oregon’s underground. Originally created as an outlet for Ryan Koger (drums) and Daniel Kelley (guitar/vocals) to express their mutual interest in late '80s and early '90s American death metal, OSSUARIUM fiendishly manifested into its current form with the addition of Nate McCleary (lead guitar) and Jeff Roman (bass) to their lineup in early 2017, after which they began writing the songs that would eventually become Calcified Trophies of Violence. Indeed, their opening salvo seethes with the same eldritch darkness of their aesthetic forebears, pulsing with a similarly linear heft that marked so much classic death metal during the turn of the '90s. Even the production itself on the tape is era-accurate, so authentic is the band's understanding of the form: OSSUARIUM have arrived with Calcified Trophies of Violence.
A CD Edition will follow shortly!

Best extreme metal album from the last three or four years. Period. It's unrelentingly intense while allowing room to breathe. Heavy as an anvil on your ballsack, but never sacrificing melody. This music goes somewhere - no static riffing. Buy it in a physical format. The artwork is truly beautiful. dharmalogos

I knew there was something I loved about tomb molds music on the first listen, I kept going back to this album and now I can't stop. these guys are very talented indeed, the technicality of their music is executed in a way that basically melts your face from your skull, I'd recommend to any die hard death metaler, or newcomer alike. I'm really pleased to have the cassette in my collection, the fact it's traveled so far to reach me makes it an extra special addition! 🤘🔥 dnacorruption
