Label : Memento Mori Press : MEMENTO-LXI - Chile Year : 2017
New or Used : original new
The debut full-length of this Chilean band. Hailing from the city of Valparaíso, the band was formed by guitar player JL Olmos (Betrayed, ex-Micosis, ex-Gangrenous) circa 1993-1994 but was put to rest due to JL being involved in several other projects at the time. It wasn´t until 2013 that JL joined bass player/vocalist JH Wilschrey (Sadistic Murder, Acero Letal) and they both resuscitated Soulrot, manifesting their unquestionable inclination towards the Death Metal of yore. This glorious, gangrenous resurrection resulted in the "Horrors from Beyond" demo in 2014 and the "Revelations" EP two years later. Between the two, Soulrot exhibited a lyrical inclination toward H.P. Lovecraft´s cosmogony and the preternatural, and musically inspired by old acts such as Nihilist/Entombed, Carnage, Autopsy, Grave, Necrony, Demigod, Traumatic, Carcass, Nirvana 2002 and Asphyx among others.
