Carbonized Records, the new label imprint helmed by drummer Chad Gailey of Necrot and Mortuous, is pleased to officially unveil two new offerings: the self-titled debut from grind/punk practitioners DEADPRESSURE (now featuring MORTUOUS' Colin Tarvin) andthe two-song split between the death bringers in SCOLEX and MORTUOUS. Both releases are out now and streaming in celebration of Halloween!
DEADPRESSURE's self-titled punisher was recorded, mixed, and mastered in May 2017 by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave, Vastum, Noothgrush, Autopsy) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland California. Drawing influence from the likes of His Hero Is Gone, Neurosis, and Dead Congregation to create a sound that combines elements from across the punk and metal spectrums, the record boasts thirteen tracks of uneasy listening.
Featuring artwork by Jared Power (Cannabis Corpse), Deadpressure is available digitally and on limited vinyl available in three color variants - teal with marble splatter, gray with marble splatter, and black (double-sided insert with download card included).
Stream it in full at THIS LOCATION.
DEADPRESSURE will play a dual record release show in San Jose November 2nd with Atrament with additional performances in the conspiring stages.

SCOLEX / MORTUOUS Split:
SCOLEX's antagonistic psalm was recorded by Salvador Raya and Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Noothgrush, Autopsy) at Earhammer Studios in 2012 and 2017 and mixed by Wilkinson in October 2017. MORTUOUS' bruiser was also recorded and mixed by Wilkinson at Earhammer in March 2018. The release was mastered by Dan Randall (Ghoul, Fucked Up) at Mammoth Sound Mastering in May 2018 and comes swathed in the grisly art of Sebastian Mazuera.
Wrote Metal Injection, "The riffs drip with slime, the vocals seem to spew from their throats. It's only fitting the two projects come together to turn someone's personal space into festering horror. Both bands emphasize quality over quantity in their years. Combined, the two projects have three demos and a full-length. Still, each composition is death metal done in a most sinister way. Of course, that same craft shines on their new split. Each band brings a vicious song in a fusion of some of the genre's sickest minds."
The SCOLEX/MORTUOUS split is also available on limited edition vinyl in two color variants - 250 gold and 250 black. For physical orders, visit the Carbonized website at THIS LOCATION.
