Birthed into battle
From the serpent skirt
He who divided night
Brought the stars down to earth
Our supreme deity
Master god to no other
He who gave us strength
To separate ourselves from other brothers
All hail our supreme god and master
Master of the Sun
Under war banners blood will run
Master guardian through war
Under eagle we shall soar
Golden brown eagle
Guiding us to the lakes
He who can harness sun rays Through the turquoise snake
Grand solar general
Under war banners we stand
He who gave us orders
Commanding the rise of Tenochtitlan
To him we pray in time of peace and time of war
To him we pray, all hail, all hail our god of war
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present DECEASED's long-awaited eighth album, Ghostly White, on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape format.
By now, DECEASED need no introduction. One of the longest-running American death metal bands, since 1985, DECEASED have been there for it all: death metal's genesis, its creative peak, its commercial peak and subsequent sink into trendiness, the eventual fallout and "un-trendiness," its rebirth at the hands of a new generation, and on and on. There they have stood, simply and 100% always DECEASED, not caring what year it is or what is hip - simply, always, DEATH METAL FROM THE GRAVE!
And across their sizable-yet-succinct discography, at their heart, DECEASED have always been a great HEAVY METAL band. They proved it with 1997's landmark Fearless Undead Machines and continued to prove it with every album thereafter, with 2011's Surreal Overdose showing that even this many years on, their pistons are pumping harder and more creatively than ever.
Ghostly White is DECEASED's first album since then, and it's massively anticipated to say the very least. And as expected, this is the sound of DECEASED at their finest and most fiery: truly EPIC, narrative songwriting led, as always, by the incomparable creepshow lyricism of founding vocalist King Fowley. Totaling eight songs in a twisting 'n' turning 55 minutes, Ghostly White takes the listener on a breathless yet dynamic ride through the darkest corners of the band's trademark Death Metal From The Grave, with the dual-axe majesty of longtime guitarist Mike Smith and Shane Fuegal (who's been his foil since 2006) taking these songs into almost anthem status. In fact, the urgency and passion with which DECEASED play here is startling to behold; most bands even a fraction of their age rarely exhibit this much intensity nor finesse. Of course, throughout, this is simply what they do, because Ghostly White is simply and 100% DECEASED.
Some bands rest on their laurels, and other bands merely rest. DECEASED may have been away from the album game for some seven years now, but with Ghostly White, they more than prove that they haven't been sleeping: wide-eyed and wild, they're at the top of their game!

OUT DECEMBER 3RD 2018:
(BeBu-116) LEGION OF ANDROMEDA (Japan) - Fistful Of Hate LP
-Second album from the aural equivalent of Tetsuo. Minimalist industrial
death metal at it's loudest and most repetitive extreme. This time
recorded and produced by Harald Mentor, the sound is destroyed,
distorted and pounding: death metal with a production of hardcore techno
meets 4-track Ildjarn. Extreme, sick music, not for humans, fatal for
those suffering of migraine. Covers are a black & white eye candy for
total headache, printed in and out for your complete disorientation.
Co-release between Bestial Burst / Fuck Yoga / At War With False Noise
01-FISTFUL OF HATE (MOTHERFUCKER)
04-ARMAMENT OF BARBARISM
07-HAMMER OF REVENGE
