mutilation rites will release their new album “Harbinger” this summer!
In conjunction with their appearance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest MUTILATION RITES will embark on a brief east coast/midwest tour supporting BLACK BREATH in late May. Dates can be found below. A more extensive tour announcement will follow in the coming weeks.
Having stunned critics and fans alike with their acclaimed 2012 Prosthetic debut “Empyrean” — described as “a harrowing descent into the bleakest that black metal has to offer” ( About.com Heavy Metal) — MUTILATION RITES have finally finished their long-awaited follow-up. Once again recorded with Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC, Magrudergrind) at Developing Nations in Baltimore, the new album, “Harbinger,” will be the band’s first full-length to feature Ryan Jones (ex-Today is the Day) on bass and vocals. A summer release is expected; more details will be revealed shortly.

See THE HELL live (if you dare) at either London’s Camden Rocks Festival (May 31) or at the prestigious Sonisphere Fest.
The band says, “‘Order of Dracul’ is the first taste of the new album. It is a bombastic song with colorful classical orchestration. The title refers to Vlad Tepes, the notorious prince of Wallachia.”
