ASSUMPTION x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

ASSUMPTION x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

Doom will fall upon Asakusa!
The Italian Death/Doom outfit ASSUMPTION was formed in 2011 by Giorgio and David of HAEMOPHAGUS (ex-UNDEAD CREEP, ex-MORBO, etc). Though originally started as a studio project, they managed to recruit support members in order to play shows with bands such as COFFINS, DEMILICH, ESOTERIC, SUB ROSA, and more. 
In 2018, they finally released their long awaited 1st album entitled "Absconditus", released on Everlasting Spew Records and Sentient Ruin Laboratories. 
Similar to their precursor diSEMBOWELMENT, they craft dark and eerie Doom/Death that combines extreme heaviness with Pink Floyd-esque psychadelic experimentation.
Dark symphonies shall echo in the abysmal depths of Asakusa Deathfest 2019!

MORBO、UNDEAD CREEPでの活動経験あるメンバーにより結成されたイタリアンデス・ドゥームバンド。2014年にデビューミニアルバムをリリース、精力的に活動しフィンランドデスメタル伝説、DEMILICHや日本のCOFFINS、イギリスのサイケドゥーム、ESOTERICなどとも競演。
ズシリと重苦しいドゥーム・デスリフと不気味なクリーンパートのコンビネーション。オーストラリアのカルトデス・ドゥーム、diSEMBOWELMENTからの影響をベースにPINK FLOYD的なサイケデリックな要素も織り交ぜた暗黒のドゥームデスサウンド。
2018年にリリースされたファーストフルアルバム ”Absconditus”をひっさげて浅草に破滅をもたらす!


DISROTTED x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

DISROTTED x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

Vomitted from the depths of the cosmos, DISROTTED was formed in Chicago in 2014 by Adam (Mortify, Winters in Osaka, ex-Sick/Tired), Dean (ex-Harpoon), and John (ex-Black September, ex-Kungfu Rick). Together, the otherworldly trio set forth to lay down some of the heaviest and slowest Doom this side of the galaxy.
Though active in putting out material for split releases, such as with Anarchus, su19b, and Cloud Rat, their first self-titled full length, released in 2015, set the stage for their cosmic Doom. Slow tempo with heavy fuzzy riffs, feedback and noise as if from the depths. Their follow up, "Divination", released the following year was not only a great album, but worship to the hungry Gods laying beyond our reach.
DISROTTED is returning to Japan for the third time. Prepare for the void to wrap its twisted and writhing tendrils around your very souls at Asakusa Deathfest 2019!

宇宙の深淵から吐き出された暗黒の激遅激重ドゥーム、DISROTTEDは2014年にシカゴで結成。メンバーのAdamは日本のHM-2秒殺グラインドコア、MORTIFYでも活動しノイズ Winters in Osakaの創始者でもある。すでに2回のジャパンツアーも敢行。
ANARCHUSやSU19Bなどともスプリット音源をリリースし2017年に発表したフルアルバム "Divination"は極端に遅く、そして重く、耳をつんざくフィードバックとノイズの破滅的サウンドで宇宙を旅するドゥームの神々と交信するための暗黒サウンドを閉じ込めた素晴らしいアルバムだ!!


NECROT x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

NECROT x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

Consisting of current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviors, and Mortous, it's no surprise that they have quickly become one of the most respected bands in the Bay Area scene.
After releasing three demos, they finally released their first full length, "Blood Offerings", in 2017. It turned out to be one of the best Death Metal albums of the year.
Now it's time for Asakusa to get a taste of what NECROT has to offer live, because they are coming to Asakusa Deathfest this year to drag you all down to hell with them!

PESTILENCE x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

PESTILENCE x Asakusa Deathfest 2019

Get ready for the plague because the living Death Metal legends PESTILENCE are finally landing in Japan this year!
Formed in 1986 as a Thrash Metal band, they gradually shifted to a more brutal and heavy sound that was evident in their 2nd album "Consuming Impulse", released in 1989. This is considered by and large to be one of the best Death Metal albums of all time! By their 3rd album, PESTILENCE implemented more progressive and technical song structures which became a mainstay in their later albums. Alongside DEATH, PESTILENCE was a pioneer of early Progressive Death Metal.
And over 30 years later, the band continued their aural onslaught with their latest album "Hadeon".
Beware of the pandemic! Because PESTILENCE is spreading their pus-soaked Death Metal disease at Asakusa Death Fest 2019!

結成は1986年、スラッシュメタルバンドとしてスタート。蟻ジャケで知られるセカンドアルバム "Consuming Impulse" はデスメタル史に残る名盤の1枚。サードアルバム以降、よりテクニカルで複雑な楽曲となりDEATHと同じくプログレッシブ・テクニカルデスメタルの始祖的バンドの1つとなる。
