OSSUARY INSANE - Part Iii: Decimation Of The Flesh (12" LP)
United States | Death
HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS, TO THE DEATH RECORDS & BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present OSSUARY INSANE's Decimation of the Flesh, the third and final part of an ongoing endeavor to reissue this cult American death metal band's entire recorded works. Forming in that fateful year of 1991, OSSUARY INSANE were originally named Ossuary and released one demo under that moniker before changing it in 1995. As OSSUARY INSANE, they would undergo multiple lineups and release a trio of official demos and one album, Demonize the Flesh, in 1998. Through it all, the band would perfect a sound that was DEATH METAL incarnate - unremittingly dark, dynamic, and heavy as fuck - but offered tons of unique twists, all increasingly their own and executed with pinpoint precision. In many ways, OSSUARY INSANE took the well-known (and rightly so) Tampa death metal style down both weirder and more blackened routes, always challenging the listener while throttling the body. With Decimation of the Flesh, we can witness the full breadth of the band's power, as this vinyl LP collects their debut Fallen to the Pits demo (recorded as Ossuary, released in 1995) and their final recording, Bottom Feeder, a three-song promo released at the end of 2006. Between the two recordings, OSSUARY INSANE comes full circle, utilizing the original/classic lineup of Celebrant/Prophet/Rage and sounding just as hungry 'n' harrowing, both immediately engaging and difficult to conveniently categorize, during the unfortunately final days as they did in the beginning. And thus comes to a conclusion the story of a black-sheep band that never fully received its due, but now under the auspices of BLOOD HARVEST, their story shall be completely told - and all three vinyl releases shall be compiled onto a double-CD to be released later in 2018!
