Neil Grace That glorious bass sound compelled me to purchase. A near perfect debut album from one of Australia’s best death metal bands. Dirty, morose and utterly satisfying.

chris_topher_mc Dread…dread be upon you!  The dead have risen. Powerful dead.  Not the shambling, laughable, moaning corpses ubiquitous to zombie lore;  They are naught but corpses of the weak. Here rise execrable, ruthless, ungodly beasts.  Barbaric warriors and tyrants…Shepherds of death when in mortal form; Now transformed into herculean relics.  Corpses hardened by the cruel passage of centuries and whetted in clay......

BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present CARCINOID's striking debut album, Metastatic Declination, on vinyl LP format.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, CARCINOID belong to that strain of nefarious bands that could not possibly be given birth to: this is the offspring of a miscarriage, more like. So odorous, pugnacious, and hideous is the music that this quartet belch forth, it verily sounds like a radioactive, cancerous growth bubbling up from a post-apocalyptic landscape; not for nothing are they monikered CARCINOID. Comprised of past/current members of other local underground acts such as Dungeons of Blood, Pregnancy, Reaper, Eternal Rest, Hobo Magic, Xenos, and Spawn, CARCINOID claim to be equally influenced by the likes of Autopsy, Napalm Death, Paradise Lost (early!), Corrupted, Pungent Stench, Obituary, Grief, Carcass, Cathedral (also early!), and Brutal Truth among others. The amalgamation of such foul ingredients results in a putrescent stew where death metal and doom of the filthiest and most crushing order predominates, and sudden blasts of grinding derangement help intensify the vile listening experience. Such is the sound of Metastatic Declination, the band's debut album: no melody, no light, no hope!

Suitably furnished with starkly regressionist cover art courtesy of Necro Frost and with gutsfucking mastering from Jason Fuller at Goatsound, CARCINOID's Metastatic Declination is truly a record for only the sickest and most hardened ears - if you're a false, do no entry!
