I wouldn't be disappointed if Crematory Stench just kept on releasing EP's. This new batch of songs leans more towards early '90s death, but the band mangles those sounds into their wretched own.
Favorite track: Hypothermic Expiry.
BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS and HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS (distributed & marketed by REGAIN RECORDS) are proud to present CREMATORY STENCH's highly anticipated second EP, Grotesque Deformities, on CASSETTE and 12" vinyl formats.
Hailing from Southern California, CREMATORY STENCH formed in 2014 and released their self-titled debut EP two years later. Then a trio, the band's sound was a thrashing take on late '80s death metal, largely nodding to early Death and Pestilence. Now expanded to a quartet and having been a prolific force on the live front, CREMATORY STENCH's attack has but gotten nastier, gnarlier, and creepier. One could argue that with Grotesque Deformities, they have entered the very early '90s, owing as they do to the gutsfuck sounds coming from Sweden then. Either way, it's utterly hellish.
But, on evidence of this new second EP, CREMATORY STENCH are just getting started and will undoubtedly get darker and more disgusting. Jump on their bandwagon now and witness their Grotesque Deformities!
