BAMF Spotlight: Embryonic Devourment
Friday, June 24, 2011 Leave a comment
Every week, Wrecked will be highlighting bands playing the upcoming Bay Area Metal Festival. This week we give you the crushingly brutal Embryonic Devourment from Willits, CA.
If you want a dose of shred with your morning cup of coffee, look no further than Embryonic Devourment, one of the big names topping this years Bay Area Metal Festival. If you like your metal with a relentless attack, full of blast beats, demonic growls, and enough shredding to give a plastic surgeon trouble putting your face back together after everything’s said and done, then you need to turn your attention to these guys. Brutality hardly comes close in describing Embryonic Devourment’s take on extreme metal. Death metal purists, proggressive enthusiasts, tech-metal lovers alike can find something to love about ED’s sound, and I fully expect them to bring the noise this July closing out the BAMF fest with Forbidden and Ulysses Siren.
Grinding brutality, in its own unique form, shredding the minds of all alike from the close-minded, and feeble, to the strongest of free thinkers… Embryonic Devourment formed in early 2003 from the ashes of Ye Old Skabbard with founding members Lauren Pike and Luke Boutiette. In November/December 2003 they went into Trident Studios and recorded the brutally acclaimed 5 song EP “Beheaded by Volition”, recorded and engineered by Juan Urteaga of the band Vile, which quickly got them signed to Grotesque Music, out of Spain. The release immediately received media attention in worldwide publications such as Pit Magazine, Metal Maniacs, Terrorizer, Metal Pages, Bast Magazine, and several zines and online sites.
