Oozepus Inks Deal With Domestic Genocide

Domestic Genocide Records has signed a pact with Tokyo-based Oozepus, welcoming the trio to their ever-morphing society of auditory sickness. The label comments:

"Uchino, of Japanese doom lords Coffins, initiated Oozepus in 2012, in order to re-examine his earlier roots as Compromise You Need -- the band previous to Coffins in the mid-'90s -- was forged in the more industrial/death tradition of Godflesh, Dead World and Skin Chamber.

"Taking on vocal and guitar duties, he recruited fellow Coffins-mate Satoshi on drums, and bassist/vocalist Ohkubo of Linekraft and Albiorix Requiem, the band began crafting this elder template into a new design.

"Oozepus released first recordings earlier this year in the form of a three-song demo issued through Three Plugs Records/Pagan Result, the material displaying a bruising, hypnotic metallic style comparable to early Swans, Godflesh, Scorn and no wave with a molten, organic persuasion. The potent demo caught the ear of American-based Domestic Genocide (Cerna, Akris, etc.) who contracted the outfit to join the label roster."
