GRAVE INFESTATION x Asakusa Deathfest 2024



Formed in 2018, GRAVE INFESTATION recorded their debut demo “Infesticide” as a trio, originally self-released in late 2018 and then picked up for wider release by INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS. GRAVE INFESTATION wield a gutsfucking sound that near-effortlessly synthesizes every slice of darkness of death metal’s pivotal late 80’s era. Death metal diehards took notice, and then the second demo, Infestation of Rotting Death, consolidated that standing, revealing the band as a quartet with the addition of a second lead guitarist.

In 2022, GRAVE INFESTATION released their full-length debut - Persecution of the Living. Reprising a couple re-recorded songs from the preceding demo, the presciently titled Persecution of the Living wastes no fucking time in getting in and absolutely flaying the listener alive. The foundation remains much the same - from the malignant tendrils Morbid Angel cast across the Tampa scene to the buzzsaw bulldoze of the contemporaneous Swedish scene, the ancient foundation of Necrovore, Repulsion, and Sadistic Intent to Carcass’ godly first two albums - but GRAVE INFESTATION exhibit a frightening clarity in their jackhammering attack.

THE NAUSEA, AHNA, ENCOFFINATE, and other staples from the West Coast
of Canada’s metal assault and bring along with them the raw and primitive attack
signature of Canadian metal.

The band’s second LP “Carnage Gathers” will be released by labels Invictus Productions and Dark Descent in late 2024.

TROLLCAVE x Asakusa Deathfest 2024



"We're really looking forward to go to Japan and spread our dose of necrotic death/doom all over the island, and we would also like to thank to all the parties involved on making it happen, Naru,Hiroshi, Raphael, Anatomia and so on.
Expect new music in the near future wich we'll be playing live during our small tour in Japan." - TROLLCAVE

Started in late 2021 by Marta and Marc, Trollcave emerges from the rotten breeding grounds of Barcelona as one of the youngest promises in the Spanish underground. After releasing a diseased death/doom demo ("Malforming Abominations of the Gloom Depths"), Carlos (from sibling band Sanctuarium) joins on vocals. With their debut LP ("Rotted Remnants Dripping into the Void") coming out in late 2022 via Gurgling Gore, and now joined by Federico from Bloodsoaked Necrovoid, and Pablo from Inanicion, Trollcave prepare to spread their necrotic death metal of doom over Europe. Downtuned, reverb-drenched, ugly and slow, Trollcave continue their eternal worship of diSEMBOWELMENT, Thergothon, Rippikoulu, Spectral Voice and Incantation with upcoming EP and split releases during 2024.

SOUL DEVOURMENT x Asakusa Deathfest 2024



"We look forward to bringing our death metal to the Land of the Rising Sun. Since we were young, we have appreciated the history and culture of Japan. Bands like Anthem, Loudness, Seikima II, Transgressor, Butcher ABC, Abigail, Intestine Baalism and Anatomia have inspired us throughout the years.We are excited to perform for fans in Japan. Prepare yourselves for a night of Death Metal hell!" - SOUL DEVOURMENT

日本のデスメタルファンにSoul Devourmentの曲を届けられる事に感激しているよ!若い頃から日本の歴史や文化に親しんできたからね。特にAnthem, Loudness, 聖飢魔II, Transgressor, Butcher ABC, Abigail, Intestine Baalism, Anatomia に憧れて今も刺激を受けているんだ。みんなの前で演奏するのを楽しみにしているよ。

Formed in 2020, hailing from Los Angeles, California and El Salvador, Soul Devourment deliver crushing death metal with influences ranging from Dismember, Carnage to Bolt Thrower and early Sentenced. As well as Japanese legends Intestine Baalism and Transgressor. Not content to wallow in simplistic pits of gore, Frank Heredia (guitar, vocals), Anthony Friere (Guitars), Jerrod Preston (Bass), and Jeremy Ortega (Drums) craft songs steeped in themes of existential dread and the bleakest dystopian science fiction.

Until now, Soul Devourment has played shows in the United States. However, their appearance at Asakusa Death fest will mark their international debut.

BULLETBELT x Asakusa Deathfest 2024


BULLETBELT (New Zealand)

"We are very excited to return to Asakusa Deathfest, Our appearance in 2018 is still one of our career highlights and we can't wait to once again play to all the Japanese Metal Maniacs!" - BULLETBELT

New Zealand’s Bulletbelt has toured Europe, Australia, Japan and New Zealand and played
numerous support slots with visiting international acts including Sepultura, Carcass, Napalm
Death, Midnight, Psycroptic, The Black Dahlia Murder, Impiety, Bolzer, Tragedy, Rotten Sound,
Midnight, Municipal Waste, Ringworm, Paul Dianno, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, Sacred Riech
and Vio-Lence..
The band first announced themselves to the New Zealand’s metal-loving audiences in 2009.
With music featuring on the soundtrack to cult-classic movie, Deathgasm, international touring
and three previous records of brutal, beautiful sonic assault, it’s a solid foundation that
Warlords sits atop. A decade of brand-building, blood, sweat and... beers …tears and forever
true and strong of heart, sound of mind and body and committed to the riff, the chorus, the way
of the anthem, Bulletbelt’s head is held high, their flag is in the sand

RAPTURE x Asakusa Deathfest 2024


RAPTURE (Greece)

"To all the die-hard maniacs of Japan:  Rapture is looking forward to blow your ears to shreds! We are happy and proud for our participation to Asakusa Deathfest, since our first ever shows in Japan, a place with stunning culture and significant history in extreme music, will happen at a festival with strong, Independent spirit and true respect to the values of the underground. 

Rapture is a Deathrash misanthropy venture from Athens Greece, flying under the banner of the label FDA Records. The band was formed in early 2013 and in 2015 its first album “Crimes against Humanity” was released by Witches Brew on CD the same year, establishing the band as one of the most powerful live young bands of the Greek scene.   Rapture’s 2nd full-length album “Paroxysm Of Hatred” was released in January of 2018 via Memento Mori and it became the breakthrough point for the band to start gigging abroad, performing at various festivals but also with tours in Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Turkey, Malta, Sweden and Denmark up until the hit of the pandemic which resulted in many more shows getting cancelled.  In 2021, Rapture stormed once again with the 3rd album “Malevolent Demise Incarnation” by the German label FDA Records receiving critically acclaimed reviews from the worldwide metal press and community and establishing the band even more in the metal scene. During 2022 and 2023 the band played extensively across Europe, with highlights being an exclusive performance in Portugal at Extreme Metal Attack festival, a short German tour with label mates Dehuman Reign and finishing 2022, with a direct support to Nile’s packed Athenian show - as requested guests from Nile, between numerous other performances in Greek and European festivals. Beginning of 2024, the latest album was repressed by FDA Records after being sold out, and the band is focusing on more touring, while at the same time, the composition of the next album is well underway. The band has played its first shows for 2024 in Netherlands, and has more shows ahead in Europe. A highlight for the band’s career Rapture is looking forward to storm with Anti-Music for the first time in Japan at Asakusa Deathfest!

MIASMATIC NECROSIS x Asakusa Deathfest 2024


"We look forward to performing an emetic Eucharist in Japan for the first time. Inferna tetigit possit, Ut supera assequi" - MIASMATIC NECROSIS

Corpus est templum. The body is a temple. For Miasmatic Necrosis, proclaiming its rotting pews and rafters is just the beginning of a pilgrimage toward transcendence through the esoteric rites of corpus in extremis. The quartet’s fervor is evangelized through death metal-inspired goregrind, reverential to the spirits of early Carcass, Regurgitate, and Dead Infection.

UNDERGANG x Asakusa Deathfest 2024


UNDERGANG was formed in the summer of 2008 in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark, and was the creation of long needs for creating conservative and brutally heavy death metal, something that wasn't as widespread in the international, and even less national, extreme metal scene at the time. Formed and driven with the passion for the genre and little care for other people's acceptance and interest, the band wrote and recorded what they intended to be their debut album "Indhentet af døden" during the winter of 2008/2009, supported by having played a variety of local shows in the Danish capital region. The debut album eventually got released in January 2010 by the UK based newly founded label Me Saco Un Ojo Records and a little later the Spanish label Xtreem Music, with whom they signed a contract for the first and second album. 2010 and 2011 was spent playing various shows and festivals around Europe and even their first appearance in the US on a 2011 West Coast tour for three weeks around the Chaos in Tejas festival in Austin, Texas. The sophomore album "Til døden os skiller" was released on LP/CD in February 2012 and supported by a European tour the same month and two months later a support job in Brooklyn in New York opening for death metal legends AUTOPSY.
The next three years was spent touring extensively all over bringing the band several times to the US, Japan, Australia and continuously around Europe. In July 2015 the third album and closer of the "Døden" trilogy was released and supported by a three week European tour, the album was also the return to working with Me Saco Un Ojo Records and the first album release working with US based Dark Descent Records, both labels whom UNDERGANG still works with for all major releases to this day. Lots of more shows and tours all across the world took place the next two years leading up to the release of their perhaps most well received album, "Misantropologi", which was released in July 2017 and supported by a five week full US tour, followed by a smaller leg of European shows in September that year. Over the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 the band established their current line-up with with Mads Haarløv on lead guitar and backing vocals, Martin Leth Anders on bass and backing vocals joining the founding the members Anders Pedersen on drums and David Mikkelsen on guitar and lead vocals. With the new strong line-up the band wrote and recorded their fifth studio album "Aldrig i livet" which was released in December 2020, in the midst of the pandemic but still with a local show supporting the release live, even if under heavy restrictions for live events in Denmark at the time.
2023 saw the release of the bads lates EP “De syv stadier af fordærv” and offers more of the by now well expected putrid death metal nauseation, that people love or hate the band for.
