Decomposed Announces "Wither" Release

Decomposed is set to drop the "Wither" album via Chaos Records on October 3rd, 2016. After the Swedish death metal might of 2012's self-titled debut album and 2014's "Devouring," Decomposed has returned to up the ante with this third album and Chaos Records debut.

Decomposed Re-Issuing "Hope Finally Died"

A truly forgotten entry from the U.K. doom/death scene will be reissued on August 21st via Candlelight Records. Originally released in 1993, "Hope Finally Died" is the full-length debut by the South London four-piece Decomposed.

Metal Ireland notes, “if there was ever a lost classic screaming to be brought back to the public’s attention this is it.” Decibel Magazine called it “a lost gem that stands tall along side the ‘Big Three’ of British death/doom.”

One of the first album’s released by a then fledging new English label (Candlelight Records), "Hope Finally Died" was pressed only once making it unavailable for well over a decade. Ebay and Discogs currently list original pressings of the seven-song album for $150 or more.

The album was recorded over the course of seven days mid-April 1993 at West Midlands-based Rhythm Studios; also the birth place of Cathedral’s "Forest Of Equilibrium," Solitude Aeturnus’s "Through The Darkest Hour," and Electric Wizard’s "Come My Fanatics." Its release came during the genre’s most prolific period; My Dying Bride’s breakthrough "Turn Loose The Swans" and Anathema’s "Serenades" saw release the same year.

Winterfylleth bassist Nick Wallwork includes "Hope Finally Died" in his top ten death/doom albums. He recalls, “its one of the earliest releases on Candlelight (candle003 no less). I was first made aware due to a name drop on the inner sleeve of Anathema’s Serenades. Looking at the cover art I was prepared for maybe another emotive melodic doom experience but what I got was very different. This is deathly doom metal of the highest order.” More...
