Venereal Baptism was spawned as a solo project of Adversor (Nethermost, Grieving Mirth, Mysteria Inframundi, Gibbet) in 2014 in Laredo, Texas, right at the border of USA and Mexico, with the intention of creating dark and fast music that would blur the line between black and death metal. Later that year, D.H. (Exaltatio Diaboli, Grieving Mirth) joined the ranks on vocals, and they recorded their first work, Progenitor of all Aberrations, a self-produced five-track EP released under Throats Productions the following year.
Given the great acceptance that their opus had, Venereal Baptism decided to go full force in 2016, entering the studio again to record their first full-length album, Deviant Castigation Liturgy, recruiting Prokingu (Plutonian Shore), Fermentor (Decayed Mutilation), and Warblast (Violate) filling in for bass, lead guitars, and drums, respectively. Soon after the album was recorded, a deal with Osmose Productions was signed for its release in early 2017. Now as a full-fledged horde, the venereal machine is embarking on a mission to spread contagion across the continents. Salve Carnifex!
