Prosthetic Records has announced the signing of Brooklyn’s Mutilation Rites. Sick name.
The filthy black metal band was conceived by Michael Dimmitt and Justin Ennis in January 2009 and after various incarnations, solidified with the addition of George Paul and Iain Deaderick.
Members have done time in acts such as Tombs, Heuristic and Curendera. They site influences including, but not limited to, Darkthrone, Discharge, Dissection and Weakling. In short: They literally sound like they might just be the best band to ever happen.
“After a quick East Coast run, we will begin recording our full length debut for Prosthetic Records with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations in Baltimore,” the band says in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited about our new relationship with Prosthetic Records. Expect us to be touring heavily beginning spring 2012.”
