In conjunction with their appearance at this year's Maryland Deathfest, self-proclaimed "filthy black metal" quartet MUTILATION RITES will embark on a brief east coast/midwest tour supporting Black Breath in late May. Dates can be found below. A more extensive tour announcement will follow in the coming weeks.
Having stunned critics and fans alike with their acclaimed 2012 Prosthetic debut "Empyrean" -- described as "a harrowing descent into the bleakest that black metal has to offer" (About.com) -- MUTILATION RITES have finally finished their long-awaited follow-up. Once again recorded with Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC, Magrudergrind) at Developing Nations in Baltimore, the new album, "Harbinger," will be the band's first full-length to feature Ryan Jones (ex-Today is the Day) on bass and vocals. A summer release is expected; more details will be revealed shortly.
