Belgium’s epic saxophonised death metallers Wound Collector, are ready to release their full length debut ‘Eternal Bloodcult’ on the masses. The foursome of Peter Verdonck (vocals / saxophone), Kurt Hermans (bass / vocals), Guy Van Campenhout (guitars / vocals) and Ben Van Peteghem (drums) mix an old school death metalvibe with modern accents, a hefty dose of saxophone, triple vocal attacks and progressively brutal songs into a whirlwind of death, negativity and hopelessness.
The music is diverse and challenging while maintaining that catchy vibe. Lyrically, the band centres their songs around moments in history that are often forgotten or neglected, thus unearthing them to a wider audience. The saxophone assaults are more than filler, as Wound Collector uses this instrument to its full potential, therefore becoming a necessary mainstay in all songs, be it in melody, rhyhtm or lead-shape.
‘Eternal Bloodcult’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jérémie Bézier at Blackout Studios (Enthroned, Emptiness, Batsheba, … ) and offers an exciting new take on the shape of death metal. Prepare to be epically saxophonised by Wound Collector’s death metal!
