Up and coming death metal overlords Dark Descent Records are proud to announce the signing of American Death Metal act FATHER BEFOULED for the release of their third album on CD and LP formats. Formed in 2006 and quickly amassing a solid fan-base with their breed of lurching, abysmal and suffocating death metal, Father Befouled have released two critically acclaimed full length albums (2008’s Obscrus Nex Cultus and 2010’s Morbid Destitution of Covenant) and several EPs and splits.
For the release of the third album, to be christened Revulsion of Seraphic Grace, the band has teamed up with Colorado’s Dark Descent Records alongside other contemporary stalwarts of the scene, Adversarial, Miasmal, and Grave Ritual.
To further celebrate the signing, look for the brand new split 7″ with Chile’s Demonic Rage to become available 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.
The band could not be happier, says 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, stay tuned.
