APOCRYPHON/FABRICANT SPLIT EP NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER VIA HORROR PAIN GORE DEATH PRODUCTIONS



via HPGD Productions:

"Making their HPGD debut are two of the Bay Area's most promising new death metal bands, joining forces for a 5-song EP of jarring, psychedelic, grinding dissonance culled from the very darkest bowels of the human psyche!

Apocryphon hails from both San Francisco and the Oakland area, and have established themselves as one of the most sought-after metal acts in the area since the release of their 6-song, self-titled demo in 2011. Incorporating electronic noise, strange samples, insane drumming, and angular riffs into their overall sound, Apocryphon has quickly gained a reputation as both brutal and bizarre. The two songs present on this EP were some of the last to be completed by legendary engineer Jeff "Leppard" Davis before his untimely death in June of 2012, and stand as a testament to both his talent and integrity. For fans of: early Cryptopsy, Death, and ayahuasca vision-quests.

Fabricant hails from the sleepy town of Lafayette, California, and display a flair for all things weird, technical, and ugly. Light-speed blastbeats, odd time signatures, and off-the-wall chord structures are all hallmarks of this young and hungry band, whose innovative 4-song, 2010 demo became a quick favorite in forward-thinking death metal circles. Still at the precipice of great and terrible things, Fabricant remain an unpredictable force to be reckoned with in the Bay Area metal scene, and promise unmatched imagination and brutality in the years to come. For fans of: Demilich, late-era Gorguts, and all manner of gruesome, dissonant deathgrind."


Track listing:

1) Apocryphon: "Cydonian Enigmas/Berzerker"
2) Fabricant: "Impotent Creed"
3) Fabricant: "Terror Gland"
4) Fabricant: "Craving"

I've been tuning to Illogical Contraption since about two or three years ago... in the middle of all those beautiful shit you share whith us, Apocryphon is, so far, the best. and I'm not a new guy -no sé cómo le llaman ustedes a los nuevos...- i've been active in the underground metal of Guatemala since around 1990. gracias por Apocryphon! qué musicón, por la gran puta!! de todos modos, Mr Cobras, there's something from Guatemala that I think that will catch your attention: Arakhne, Chronicles of a dead man. Death metal from Guatemala: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Arakhne/3540357636

Guatemala is a little fucked up banana republic, but we have our metal...
