Below is our complete The Grotesquery news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The Grotesquery has checked in with the following update about recording a new album:
"Work on the third upcoming full length has begun... the title for the new album will be called 'Tome of the Skinless Bride' - the storyline behind the lyrics will conclude the Coffin Born Trilogy - some slight edits and changes have been made from the original script for the story, but the same atmosphere and tone to the base story have been kept in tact.
"Fans who have followed closely the story from both the debut album 'Tales of the Coffin Born' as well as the follow up 'The Facts & Terrifying Testament of Mason Hamilton: Tsathoggua Tales' will find 'Tome of the Skinless Bride' shall bridge a gap between the two, and should be considered a sequel to 'Tales...' and somewhat of a prequel to 'The Facts...'
"Musicially - we are keeping with the tone and direction that also bridges between the two album, with a slight hint at the direction the band will be taking in the future. Keeping with our original ideas to make The Grotesquery a band based in traditional death metal roots, yet being able to move in more avant garde musical taste and influences to express an even broader range of dark atmospheric tones and gothic horror expressions."
The highly anticipated second album from The Grotesquery was recently released and is now streaming on Bandcamp. Titled "The Facts & Terrifying Testament of Mason Hamilton: Tsathoggua Tales," the eleven-track album is an exercise of old-school, horror occult death metal. The band was formed in early 2009 by vocalist Kam Lee (Bone Gnawer, ex-Massacre), guitarist Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader...etc.) and joined by bass player Johan Berglund from the band This Haven and the percussion skills of Brynjar Helgetun of the band Liklukt. The Grotesquery also will have an upcoming split with the band Intestinal. The two tracks on it will be "The Cult of Chthulu Calling" and "The Lurking Fear IV. The Horror in the Eyes."
