South Dakota-based death metal crew ANGEROT has tapped Decibel Magazine for the exclusive premiere of the video for “The Splendid Iniquity,” the title track from the band’s forthcoming debut album.
ANGEROT guitarist/vocalist C.R. Petit comments:
“Lyrically this song drew concept from a lifelong friend of mine. He planted the seed with three brief words, then it was as if this song lyrically wrote itself, to be honest. We had a great time filming this and working with close friends who shared our vision. This is basically part one of two.”
The Splendid Iniquity is scheduled for release on Friday, April 13 through Black Market Metal Label.
Featuring a cast of seasoned veterans who share roots that reach back to the very beginnings of the Death Metal Movement, ANGEROT are more than a nod to early Swedish Death Metal, they are pure Swede Death Worship. Recorded with Eddie G at Underground Studios, mixed by Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember, Carnage, Grave, At the Gates) at Sunlight Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright at AudioSeige, The Splendid Iniquity is a savage 40 minute sonic assault of 90’s Earache Records-era buzzsaw on your ear drums.
The album boasts guest appearances by some of the greatest names in Death Metal; LG Petrov (Entombed, Entombed AD, Firespawn), James Murphy (Death, Cancer, Disincarnate, Obituary, Testament ), making The Splendid Iniquity an absolute must listen for any fan of 90s Death Metal.
