"Contaminated are from Melbourne, Australia and were formed in 2013 by Lachy with the intent of playing a no-bullshit style of dark, filthy, rotten death metal in the way of underground Finnish and US legends. The band's first demo, Pestilential Decay, was handled solely by Lachlan in February 2014 and released on cassette by Crawling Chaos Productions the following April.
June 2014 saw the addition of Christoph (Internal Rot, Headless Death, ex-Roskopp, many others) on drums. From December 2014 to January 2015, a full line up was established, with Lachy handling guitar and Matt (Ignivomous, ex-Eskhaton), Nick (Asbestosisis, The Nihilistic Front, ex-Embodied) and Zev (Headless Death, ex-Roskopp, ex-Injury To Eye) joining to fill the roles of guitar, bass and vocals respectively.
March 2015 saw Contaminated playing their first show and self releasing another demo cassette, Promo '15. The Pestilential Decay demo was also reissued in December 2015 by Headsplit Records.
Since becoming a full band, Contaminated has been active on the live front, regularly playing around hometown Melbourne and recently interstate, often on varied lineups. Coming up soon is a show with modern legends Dead Congregation in Adelaide.
With more new material steadily coming over mid 2015 to early 2016, a full length album was recorded in May 2016 at Goatsound Studios and the band are proud to say that it will be released on LP and CD by Blood Harvest."

Such an intense and satisfying split release featuring two staples of the US Death Metal scene. Perhaps my favourite Vastum and Spectral Voice songs put to record.
The Vastum track is a hell of a fun ride with particularly sickening vocals and the Spectral Voice one is faster than their standard output...for the most part.
Glorious! I only wish it were longer. Neil Grace

Some bands emerge from the tomb more fully deformed than others. Nourished through a rotted umbilical cord to a festering amniotic sac of fecund OSDM putridity, this beast of a demo lurched forth with foul on its breath and menace dripping from the back of its neck, agitating the nerves to animate the limbs to tear victims limb from limb. And maybe to find a sick battle jacket somewhere. Name's Dalton
