Deathcave from Seattle, WA
Named after the Apache Death Cave in Arizona, DEATHCAVE was forged in 2018 and hit the ground running as its three members — Freiburger (Throne of Bone, Brain Scraper), Benny Koslosky (Swampyheavy), and Tony Muñoz (Razorhoof, Worship) — are longtime veterans of the underground touring circuit. The band released one three-song, self-titled demo last year. Captured by Tad Doyle (Tad, Hog Molly, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth), the recording reaped critical accolades from critics and underground fans in-the-know ultimately earning them a spot on Northwest Terror Fest (now moved to 2021).
Smoking Mountain was recorded by Ben Verellen (Harkonen, Helms Alee) at The Unknown in Anacortes, Washington, mixed by Verellen at Verellen Amplifiers in Seattle, Washington, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, Full Of Hell, Gatecreeper, High Command) at Audioseige in Portland, Oregon. The thundering five-track offering, which includes guest vocals by Andrea Vidal (Holy Grove), Dave Verellen (Botch, Narrows), and Neil McAdams (Black Breath) as well as a track dedicated to late Black Breath bassist Elijah Nelson — will be released on August 14th digitally and on limited edition vinyl. - Earsplit PR
