Massacre release new EP “Mythos”

Floridian death metal juggernauts, Massacre have released their new EP “Mythos”, via Nuclear Blast. The record arrives just in time for the band’s 3-date “California Resurgence ’22” tour, which begun in Santa Ana, CA.

In case it was missed, Massacre recently revealed a new single from Mythos titled “Behind The Serpent’s Curse,” which features Anders Odden (Cadaver).

Massacre rose from the swamps of Southern Florida in the early 80’s during a heatwave of groundbreaking death metal that produced some of the genre’s most revered forefathers, Death, Obituary and Six Feet Under. Their legacy was founded with a string of classic demos, “Aggressive Tyrant” (1986), “Chamber of Ages” (1986) and “The Second Coming” (1990), before unleashing their critically praised classic debut album “From Beyond” (1991). In 2021, the band made their long-awaited return with “Resurgence”. Invigorated with the same youthful rage that brought them together at inception, long-time members, vocalist Kam Lee and bassist Mike Borders, were joined in the studio by some of death’s most prolific and malignant songwriters, guitarist Rogga Johansson, guitarist Jonny Pettersson, guitarist Scott Fairfax and drummer Brynjar Helgetun with additional guest performances by Marc Grewe, Dave Ingram, Anders Odden, and Pete Slate. The record was recorded with producer and death metal icon Dan Swanö (ex-Edge of Sanity, ex-Bloodbath) and Pettersson as engineer/mixer.

Now only a year later, Massacre emerges from the swamps again for the brutally devastating EP, “Mythos”. Picking up where they left off on “Resurgence”, the band lays waste with Lovecraftian inspired lyrics and searing death metal riffs.
