Ottawa’s Deformatory delivers another slab from their concept album depicting an interdimensional horde seeking to consume the essence of planetary life. This narrative dives deeper into the scenery that was originally created in their previous album, “Malediction” (2016). “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” is broken up into three chapters and the band explains how their next single “Summoning The Cosmic Devourer” fits in:
“This chapter (II. Incursion: The Prototypal Eschaton) is written from the perspective of the Grand Arkitekt as he executes his compulsion for interdimensional domination. Witness his journey through Xuul ‘Ka, the cosmic portal he conjures to tunnel into dimensions, and the vision he has of the coming apocalypse for the Earth star. The single “Summoning The Cosmic Devourer” explores the dark art of creating Xuul ‘Ka. All life stars possess the ingredients required for the Conjuring and the path to Summoning.”
Together since 2010, the duo of drummer Neil Grandy and vocalist/guitarist Charlie Leduc easily create this maniacal strain of death metal while jamming together at their rehearsal space. Some songs were written in a single jam session with very few revisions taking place. The result is a raw and unfettered journey into carefully crafted death metal chaos.
The complexity of the lyrical concept together with the unrelenting brutality of the music makes for one hell of a sonic ride – one that you don’t want to miss out on.
Best suited for fans of extreme death metal and old-school black metal, Deformator y is recommended listening for those who enjoy Origin, Hate Eternal, and Cryptopsy.

The album “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon” will be released on September 3, 2021.

Deformatory is a death metal band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Forming in 2010, they set out to create an extreme sound, fusing together classic influences (Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) and their love for modern tech death. The result is a uniquely relentless blend of death metal that can only hail from the Northern hemisphere.
Deformatory independently released their full-length debut, “In The Wake of Pestilence”, in December of 2013. This pummeling 9-track debut has been exceptionally well-received by fans worldwide, and has been cited as being an “outstanding and monstrous debut album. Essential.” (Frank Rini – AllAboutTheRock, ex: Internal Bleeding), and “flawless in every way” (TheBloodShed).
Having shared the stage with bands like Cryptopsy, Napalm Death, Obscura, Beyond Creation, Gorod, Archspire, and Fuck The Facts, Deformatory is more than comfortable delivering their crushing brand of extreme metal to live, screaming, and sweaty audiences.
The band’s sophomore release, “Malediction”, was released worldwide via CDN Records in 2016, with additional singles “Once Upon the Cross” (Deicide cover), and “Myiasis” both in 2018. Since then, DEFORMATORY has been developing their 3rd full-length album entitled “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon”, which they plan to unveil in the Fall of 2021 as an independent release.
