This is the split 7" from Arizona's LAGO and Poland's CALM HATCHERY featuring one new song from each band. This split release is released in cooperation between SELFMADEGOD RECORDS from Poland and BATTLEGROUND RECORDS from USA.
LAGO delivers a ferocious brew of classic but modernized death metal, surrounded in a blackened fog, wholly bearing an oppressive atmosphere.
CALM HATCHERY overthrows the B-side of this split with a vital slab of decimation, ?Distant Pulsation.? Continuing to revitalize their brutality with each release, the band unloads a shredding, brutal death metal wrought with bursts of technicality and grindcore-influenced tactics.
This is a must have for fans of classic and brutal death metal in the vein of IMMOLATION, BEHEMOTH, MORBID ANGEL, SUFFOCATION.

"The band exists between dimensions; thematically with their sci-fi influences, but also sonically. It is a balancing act between different worlds of extreme metal.

Picking up where they left off with their praised 2010 full-length debut, "Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh", the new book of hymns, "O' Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchres", redefines and magnifies ENCOFFINATION's signature low-end funeral doom wrapped in the pure stench of death....
Formed in 2009, ENCOFFINATION is the sepulchral embodiment of rancid death. Crushing, suffocating death metal doom of the lowest caliber. Named for the ritual preparation of the dead for burial, ENCOFFINATION exists below the plane of mortality; deep within the realms of death and decay. Slowly they lurch forth with their educated form of blasphemy, occult, and ritualistic expulsion of the holy from the earth.

The 4th album of suffocation and oppresive funereal death metal from these purveyors of wretched doom. Accept no imitation or falsehoods.
