Derketa Releases "In Death We Meet"

Having formed in 1988, Pittsburgh's Derketa are the first all-female death metal band. When Terri and Mary left in 1991 to pursue other musical interests, Sharon continued Derketa recordings with the help of friends, primarily Jim Sadist from NunSlaughter. In 2006 it was decided to reform Derketa with the original lineup, this time with Robin Mazen (ex-Demonomacy) on bass and Mary Bielich assisting on guitar.

Now, after having several split releases and the "Premature Burial" EP, Derketa has issued its first full-length album after only a 24 year wait, "In Death We Meet," on Necroharmonic Productions. Check out a fan-made tribute clip for the new album below. Coming later this year a new horror comic book called Death Shreik will be coming out, featuring five short horror comic stories, each based on a song each by Derketa and the following four death metal bands: Rottrevore, Grave Descent, Acrostichon and Hubris.
