Willowtip Records has announced the signing of Santa Cruz, CA-based technical death metal outfit ODIOUS MORTEM.
Consisting of Anthony Trapani (CARNIVOROUS) on vocals, Joel Horner on bass, Dan Eggers on guitar, and KC Howard (DECREPIT BIRTH) on drums, ODIOUS MORTEM will enter Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, CA this month with Zack Ohren to record their Willowtip debut, "Cryptic Implosion". Made up of 11 tracks, one of which will feature a guest guitar solo by Ron Jarzombek (SPASTIC INK, WATCHTOWER), "Cryptic Implosion" can be seen as a natural, mature progression from the band's previous release, 2005's "Devouring the Prophecy", available on Unique Leader Records.
The band commented: "We are honored to say that we are now part of Willowtip Records, a label that represents progressive metal of many styles."
