Australian death metallers DEFAMER have released their sophomore album, “Decrepit Rituals”, via Obsidian Records. The CD was recorded late last year with Ean Redman and mastered by Jason “PC” Fuller at Goatsounds in Melbourne.
After the success of DEFAMER‘s 2009 debut, “Chasm”, and the departure of guitarist Mitchell Rogers, the band made the executive decision to remain with one guitarist.
According to a press release, “Sam Alcock has twisted contemporary death metal with the older schooled sound of the yesteryear. Guitar riffs invert at a bile-evoking pace into fever pitched insanity.”
DEFAMER will embark on an eleven-date Japanese and Australian tour in February and March.
Sam Alcock – Guitar
