Centuries Of Decay Announces Self-Titled Album

We live on the layers of deep time and history, strata of times past; life literally depends on centuries of decay. It’s fitting then that Centuries Of Decay builds on the metal that has come before to create the metal of the future.

The Toronto-based quintet will bring out a debut self-titled album this coming August 4th, 2017. Drummer Derrick Doucette comments:

“We’ve often thought about the fragility of civilization throughout history and the idea of events repeating itself. With that in mind, our concept album tells the story of society being born, corrupt and destroyed in an endless cycle. It can be taken as a literal piece of fiction, or even a social commentary. It also comes from more personal issues such as depression, disillusionment and failure.”

Today the band reveals a first single titled “Rise,” which is a track about pure rebellion and the rise of extreme opposition. It is the band’s most brutal song and is a tribute to the death/black metal that has been an influence in the past.

Necroptic Engorgement Releasing “Realms Of Incessant Bloodshed”

Necroptic Engorgement’s “Realms of Incessant Bloodshed” is coming via Manifest Records on June 24th, 2016.

Hailing from New York’s Hudson Valley, Necroptic Engorgement is a three piece brutal death metal outfit, drawing influence from various acts including Dying Fetus, Suffocation and a band favorite, Cannibal Corpse.

Originally started as a studio project in 2010, Necroptic Engorgement quickly recruited a full lineup, including Will Escolano, Reggie Torres, David Gapay and Shane Lake. Due to personal issues, Shane departed from the band after a 1st live performance, followed by Reggie’s resignation shortly after the release of the band’s debut EP “Transmogrified.”

Since 2012 Necroptic Engorgement has remained a 3 piece act. In 2013, the band parted ways with riginal drummer, David Gapay. Shortly thereafter, Ryan Hilerio was recruited to fill the position behind the kit. With this new and redefined lineup, the rest simply fell into place.

1. Realms of Incessant Blood Shed
2. Tapestry of Decay
3. Endless Malevolence
4. Sandpaper Masterbation
5. Nagleria Fowleri
6. Bound Gaged and Gutted
