HORRENDOUS
"ECDYSIS"
DARK DESCENT RECORDS

Nearly ten years ago three college student's from the East Coast, Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania and Columbia, South Carolina got together and decided to start a band.
Even though the students came from different states they attended the same college
together which made it easier to get together. The lyrical themes on their music include
death, gore, and reanimation. While forming in 2009 as an old school Death Metal band,
they released a demo called "SWEET BLASPHEMY". The band signed a deal with a
major and one of the most respected Black and Death Metal label ever,
DARK
DESCENT RECORDS
. In 2012 they released "THE CHILL" their first full length, and
then a skull crushing follow up full length "ECDYSIS" in 2014. This album is 100%
brutal! This band knows what Death Metal is all about. With the raspy growling vocals
that chills your blood, raunchy and a little traditional guitar trickery, clean drumming
mixed with blast beat and double bass. Overall the albums tempo kept going back and
forth fast and slow. They even threw in a few instrumentals to mesmerize you deeper in
to the abyss. The band sounds like old Death Metal , I think that's why I was hooked
from the start when I heard the album.
HORRENDOUS released their third full length
"ANARETA" in 2015, and a single, "Sentenced" in March of 2016. Other bands in the
bloodlines
OBITUARY, POSSESSED and DIABOLIC.
