Not much is known about the entity that is Sculpted Horror. What we do know is that this is wonderfully crafted old school death metal from Athens, GA was founded by Tim Rowland.
The band self-released their debut demo, Festering Death, in the form of a limited edition cassette. Now Redefining Darkness Records will re-release the demo with an additional instrumental bonus track “Bonewalker”.
Festering Death will be released on July 26th 2019.
Rising above the ‘demo’ tag by being a well produced release and showcasing an intense and rich death metal sound. Sculpted Horror’s Festering Death is a very welcome re-release.
Bound to cause spontaneous bouts of head-banging, Cursed Death seeps into the brain matter. Worship of the Dead and Night Terrors are utter savagery, the latter in particular showcasing a heaving set of drums and echoing vocal style that buries deep like a tick.
Finally it’s the instrumental Bonewalker to wrap an excellent release. Even without the vocals, the intensity is still at 11. This is a death metal instrumental track, allowing the nuances of the guitars to lead and control. Bloody brilliant.
