Odious Mortem Signs To Willowtip

Willowtip has announced the signing of Santa Cruz , CA ’s technical death metal outfit, ODIOUS MORTEM . Consisting of members Anthony Trapani (CARNIVOROUS) on vocals, Joel Horner on bass, Dan Eggers on guitar, and KC Howard (DECREPIT BIRTH) on drums, ODIOUS MORTEM will enter Castle Ultimate Studios ( Oakland , CA ) with Zack Ohren this month to record their Willowtip debut, Cryptic Implosion . Made up of 11 tracks, one of which will feature a guest guitar solo by Ron Jarzombek (SPASTIC INK, WATCHTOWER), Cryptic Implosion can be seen as a natural, mature progression from the band’s previous release, 2005’s Devouring The Prophecy , on Unique Leader Records. The band comments on the signing: “We are honored to say that we are now part of Willowtip Records, a label that represents progressive metal of many styles”. Cryptic Implosion will be released in early 2007.

Demo recordings of “The Endless Regression of Mind” and “Domain of the Eternal Paradox” can be found at ODIOUS MORTEM ’s official MySpace page.

The track list for Cryptic Implosion is as follows:

1. Reflections of a Past Existence
