Chaos Records have signed Swedish Death squad BLOOD MORTIZED for their upcoming EP "Bestial". The EP was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by drummer Mattias Borgh at Underworld Recording, Sweden.

The tracklisting reads like this: ‘Bestial’, ‘Of Dust And Doom’, ‘Shadows Of The Quarter Sun’ and ‘Rekviem’. BLOOD MORTIZED was founded in late 2007 and released their debut album on Vrykoblast Productions in 2009. The band consists of the following veterans from the Swedish Death Metal scene: Mattias Parkkila – vocals (ex-STIGMATA, ex-E.G.Y.P.T, ex-EXCRETION and session vocals for EXCRUCIATE; current side-projects are BIRCH MOUNTAIN and MALFEITOR), Anders Biazzi – guitars / bass (ex-PATHOLOG and SCUM, which later transformed into AMON AMATH), Gustav Myrin – guitar (ex-PATHOLOG, APES IQ), Mattias Borgh – drums (ex-EMBRYO, ex-CRYPT OF KERBEROS, ARCANA, SONIC VENUE and CALIPHORA). "We are very pleased to work with Chaos Records on this release", comments drummer Mattias Borgh, "they are the perfect label for this EP and we can’t wait for the underground monsters around the globe to be able to get their filthy hands on the equally filthy "Bestial" EP!"

Dark Descent Records have announced the signing of American Death Metal act FATHER BEFOULED for the release of their third album on CD and LP formats. The band has released two critically acclaimed full length albums (2008’s "Obscrus Nex Cultus" and 2010’s "Morbid Destitution Of Covenant") as well as several EPs and splits. To further celebrate the signing, look for the brand new split 7" with Chile’s DEMONIC RAGE which should be out in May, featuring the song ‘Abolition Of The Seraphic Vestige’. The band will enter the studio in August of 2011 to record "Revulsion Of Seraphic Grace" and hopes to shoot for a release late in the year. Here’s a statement from 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, so stay tuned at www.fatherbefouled.com or www.myspace.com/fatherbefouled
