“Extermination Mass”, the debut recording of DEATH WORSHIP, will be premiered at a listening session on Saturday, November 05th, at the Nuclear War Now! Festival volume V in Berlin. An exclusive limited vinyl version will be available for sale at the festival, with an all-black presentation, including the jacket, inner pocket, center label, and vinyl. It will include an insert printed on black paper with silver ink. A less-limited vinyl version and CD will then be made available to the general public in early 2017.
DEATH WORSHIP was conceived back in 2013 by Deathlord of Abomination and War Apocalypse (aka Ryan Förster of CONQUEROR/BLASPHEMY), performing all six and four stringed strangulations and lead vocals, and joined by Nocturnal Grave Desecrater and Black Winds (BLASPHEMY) on additional vocals and J. Read (CONQUEROR/REVENGE) on session percussion.
We can have a bigger picture of DEATH WORSHIP´s music and essence reading an excerpt from NWN! official press release:
“Combining the utter violence of Conqueror and Revenge with the songwriting insensibilities of Blasphemy, “Extermination Mass” achieves a perfect balance among the three bands with whom its members are most closely associated. R. Förster’s songwriting is very much aligned with that of Blasphemy, and it is characterized by more discernible riffs than many newer bestial black metal bands who often rely, to varying degrees of success, on a more obfuscated wall of noise to achieve their effect. Additionally, Förster’s knack for dropping in a well-placed and executed guitar lead is readily apparent on this recording. The Conqueror/Revenge influence is obviously most appreciable in J. Read’s signature, militarily-precise and violent percussion, which shifts tempo with less subtlety and more frequency than Blasphemy is prone to do. Perhaps as noteworthy as the songwriting and musicianship of Death Worship is the high level of attention paid to the depth of production on the recording, a trait which closely mimics that of Blasphemy’s infamous “Blood upon the Altar” demo and one which owes itself to the experience of Fiasco Bros. Recording Studios, who recorded said demo along with several other recordings attributed to the Ross Bay Cult. With “Extermination Mass,” Death Worship affirms that the Superion once again has arisen, and the Cult is alive and well.”
The unlimited version of the MLP will be released early in 2017, while the full streaming through the bandcamp page will be available next December 25th.
"PRAISE OF DEATH!! The Ross Bay Cult shall remain ETERNAL!!"
