In their endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage death metal, on April 22nd, Memento Mori is proud to present Filtheater’s striking debut album, Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction.
Hailing from the United States, Filtheater began back in 2010 when founder and sole member K.J.’s bands dissipated. This led to the exploration of the abysmal, primal, stripped-down death metal that he had worshiped as a teen. Unable to find like-minded musicians in Mississippi, K.J. went on to write and perform all aspects of the music, releasing several EPs over the next three years. Then in 2018, three like-minded maniacs (C.E., R.S. and A.W.) were added to the lineup in order to fully flesh out the band’s ancient and primitive sound, and keep the utter disgust going.
And indeed, utter disgust is all you’ll find on Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction! Aptly titled, Filtheater‘s debut album unleashes undulating waves of filth and foulness, an unyielding and cruel cascade of garbage and grime that simply refuses to be washes off! Raw and eldritch is their death metal, with no “modern” seasonings/neuterings: simply, lurch ‘n’ crunch with palpitating plunges into blastbeaten speed. Death metal for death metal maniacs, no more but certainly no less – prepare to be crushed under the weight of filthy and dismal Mississippi death metal!
Memento Mori highly recommends Filtheater for fans of Incantation, Phlegm, Grave, Entety, Rottrevore, Baphomet, Autopsy, Nuclear Death, Embalmer, Goreaphobia, and Corpus Rottus. With fittingly foul cover art by Mörtuus and disgusting mastering by Dan Lowndes, Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction is guaranteed to live up to its title – and then some! Hear for yourself the first putrefaction with the new track “Faceless Caverns” HERE at Memento Mori‘s official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
