Witch Vomit surprise-released the Abhorrent Rapture EP through 20 Buck Spin in June of 2021. Though bands tend to simmer down as they evolve, Witch Vomit reverses this tendency getting only more extreme with each release; this momentum continues on Abhorrent Rapture. Like 2017’s Poisoned Blood, Abhorrent Rapture showcases Witch Vomit in the more immediate and intense MLP format: Four tracks in roughly eighteen minutes of pure savagery but always with that eerie mood, creeping melodic sense and grisly intimidation essential to proper death metal.

A new level of barbaric mastery was achieved on Buried Deep In A Bottomless Grave, Witch Vomit‘s second full length from 2019. It was now undeniable that the band was not merely another “OSDM” (stale terminology) band when they had evolved a maximal and rarely achieved synthesis of European and American death metal styles into a flawless mélange of horrific gore-soaked splendor. Recorded and mixed by Evan Mersky (Triumvir Foul, Warcry), mastered by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Impaled, Ruin) with artwork by Matt Stikker (Power Trip, Outer Heaven, Apraxic), Abhorrent Rapture delivers four freshly unburied tracks from the witch vomitorium.
