Limited to 200 copies.
Today, Invictus Productions sets March 29th as the international release date for Grave Infestation’s striking debut demo, Infesticide, on cassette tape format.
Originally self-released during the closing moments of 2018, so impressed by Grave Infestation’s sonic filth was Invictus that the label simply had to release Infesticide on a wider scale! And within the first few minutes, it’s simple to understand why: this Vancouver power-trio wield a gutsfucking sound that near-effortlessly synthesizes every slice of darkness of death metal’s pivotal late ’80s era. From the malignant tendrils Morbid Angel cast across the Tampa scene to the buzzsaw bulldoze of the contemporaneous Swedish scene, the ancient foundation of Necrovore, Repulsion, and Sadistic Intent to Carcass’ godly first two albums – all this (and plenty more) gets swirled into Grave Infestation’s cauldron. And unlike so much modern “death metal” that purports to be a band but is nothing more than a sterile studio project, Infesticide proves that this is three actual human beings playing together, harnessing the powers of death ‘n’ destruction into a maelstrom of inexorable might.
