Krucyator Productions presents ‘Skeletal Grotesquery’, the upcoming live album by Finland’s death metal group Corpsessed. The album is scheduled for CD and digital formats on 29 May.
Corpsessed was spawned from putrescent slime in 2007 at the rotting houses of delta-area Järvenpää — a quiet somnolent town in the suburbs of the Southern Capital Area of Finland. The five-piece, with four full-length albums and two EPs under their belt, has been solidifying their presence as one of the most vital torch-bearers of the current Finnish Death Metal scene for the past 15 years.
The band is known for their dark brand of death metal that harks back to the old days of the early ‘90s and has received high praise for their hard-hitting and suffocating live shows, and this is precisely what the band was created for — crushing music that is best experienced live.
‘Skeletal Grotesquery’ is a live recording from Corpsessed’s performance at Braincrusher in Hell Festival in Hirschaid, Germany, on 25 November 2022. The live setlist, comprised of nine songs from their formidable discography, displays a visceral and unyielding form of sonic aggression. The audio was captured directly from the soundboard and later mixed by M.M. of the band and mastered by Loic Fontaine at Krucyator Studio in early 2023. No overdubs were done, and this recording presents the band in its raw and vital form. This live recording is a testament to the fact that Corpsessed is, above all, a live band and can be best experienced at maximum volume.
This live album contains tracks like ‘Succumb to Rot’, ‘Death-Stench Effluvium’, ‘Demoniacal Subjugation’ and ‘Forlorn Burial’ among others.
We have described their last full-length album ‘Succumb to Rot’ as: “Corpsessed deepened and perfected their sound to this huge and all-devouring cthulhian monster. It is less grinding but leans more on haunting dark riffs and thunderous drums, something that brings Corpsessed closer to a band like Dead Congregation than to, say, Purtenance or Convulse….Corpsessed proves to be one of the best bands in the genre and anyone how liked their previous efforts won’t be disappointed by ‘Succumb To Rot’.”More info: Corpsessed; Krucyator Productions;
