MUTILATION RITES TO RELEASE ‘HARBINGER’ THIS SUMMER ‘Filthy black metal’ quartet to perform at Maryland Deathfest, tour with Black Breath

In conjunction with their appearance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest, self-proclaimed “filthy black metal” quartet 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” ( – 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.
