Brooklyn’s “filthy black metal” band MUTILATION RITES has completed recording its debut album in Baltimore, Maryland with Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC) for a spring release via Prosthetic Records. The band has also announced a string of dates in March which will see them playing several shows at Austin’s annual South By Southwest (SXSW) music conference.
MUTILATION RITES was conceived by Michael Dimmitt and Justin Ennis in January 2009 and after various incarnations, solidified with the addition of George Paul and Iain Deaderick. Members have done time in acts such as TOMBS, HEURISTIC and CURENDERA. They draw influences from such acts as DARKTHRONE, DISCHARGE, DISSECTION and WEAKLING.
