The moment I heard this demo from newcomers PHTHISIS, I knew I wanted to release this on Gurgling Gore. It is easily one of the best demos released in 2020. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best death metal demos of the last 5 years. Yes, it's THAT good.
This demo was originally self-released by the band on limited cassette tape in the summer of 2020. It quickly sold out and has not been available on cassette tape since. So, it is with great excitement that Gurgling Gore is able to make this killer demo available once more.
"Very few bands sound this good out the gate as Phthisis do on Embodiment of Decay. If this is what they can do in their first little baby steps as a band, there is no telling what kind of devastation they will wrought once they learn to gallop like the pack of plague dogs they are so clearly destined to be." - New Noise Magazine
