American death metal act FATHER BEFOULED has inked a deal with Dark Descent Records for the release of the group’s third album, “Revulsion Of Seraphic Grace”, on CD and LP formats. The effort will be recorded in August 2011 and is tentatively due before the end of the year. A new split seven-inch single with Chile’s DEMONIC RAGE will be made available in May, featuring the FATHER BEFOULED song “Abolition of the Seraphic Vestige”.

Formed in 2006 and quickly amassing a solid fan-base with its breed of lurching, abysmal and suffocating death metal, FATHER BEFOULED has released two critically acclaimed full-length albums (2008’s “Obscrus Nex Cultus” and 2010’s “Morbid Destitution Of Covenant”) and several EPs and splits.

Commented frontman and original member Justin Stubbs: “Dark Descent is the face of real, underground, hard-working death metal.

“We were looking for a deal for this next album following our split with Relapse, and Dark Descent stepped up and laid out exactly what we wanted. We could not be happier. Matt and Dark Descent are in the fray to provide us with the support we need to produce a killer album. Expect nothing less than what we are known for, which is serpentine, suffocating death metal. We are picking up precisely where ‘Morbid Destitution Of Covenant’ left off. We got our legs under us on that one. Expect ‘Revulsion Of Seraphic Grace’ to be the defining album of our career.”

The band plans to play a few select shows to coincide with the release late in the year.
