DEFORMATORY is a brutal technical death metal band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Forming in 2010, DEFORMATORY set out to create a relentlessly extreme and unique sound, fusing together classic influences (Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Suffocation, etc.) and their love for modern tech death.
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 are 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 on February 5, 2016 via CDN Records.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
God did not create the Darkness; it was already alive, forever and eternal.
He created the Light, and divided it from the Darkness.
That division has eroded.
Malediction, the eight-track relentless follow-up to In The Wake of Pestilence was recorded, mixed and engineered by Dan Rogers at From The Frost Audio in Ottawa, Ontario, and takes their hate-filled sound to an entirely new and dark dimension.
Malediction delivers a fresh approach to the band’s sound, and the entire brutal technical death metal genre as a whole.
Malediction is the first installment in a series of concept albums revolving around Saväel, the creator of Darkness, and the original source of pure evil. In Malediction, the story follows the discovery of the sacred incantation text, his re-awakening, and the subsequent obliteration of the Light, the Heavens, and all remnants of humanity.
This is an album that will appeal to the nostalgia of old school death metal, delivered with a modern, dark and technical ferocity.
Malediction will carry listeners on an aphotic expedition through forbidden depths of evil, and into a new awakening of inhumanity.
