Turkey's Burial Invocation exploded onto the underground scene when their debut EP ‘Rituals of the Grotesque,” released Feb 3, 2010. The initial pressing of this 12″ sold out quickly as the band's brand of doomy, crypt-dwelling death metal was infectious as it was blistering.
Mixing elements of Finnish death metal among other influences, Burial Invocation followed up the debut EP the next year on the well-received split 7″ with Japan's Anatomia. This split, quickly sold out. The band eventually followed these releases with some memorable live appearances including the initial version of Copenhagen's legendary Kill Town Death Fest.
