||Champions of the old school Swedish death metal style (Stockholm, not Gothenburg), Ventura, California's Fatalist pay tribute to the likes of Nihilist, Grave, Entombed, and Dismember on debut full-length The Depths Of Inhumanity. The follow up to 2007's impressive (and now sold out) Loss demo will be released on November 23, 2009 on Ibex Moon Records. While the influences are obvious, the band injects its own personality into these 11 songs, while staying true to the bruising 'n buzzing sounds of early 90s Stockholm.
Guitarist/vocalist Neil Burkdoll (Dirty Dead, Stump) Burkdoll had this to say about the recording: "Well, three years in the making; it has been a long ass time. Our album The Depths of Inhumanity is finally going to see the light of day on Nov 23, 2009. It is 11 songs of old school death metal that we hope you guys enjoy. We really tried to make each song stand alone from the others and have their own identity. We are happy as hell that the album is coming out on Ibex Moon as well. We really felt that we would fit nicely on the Ibex Moon roster and it was a great day when John agreed to talk to us about an album deal. Things went really smooth with the label and we hope to work with them again in the future."
Burkdoll, along with veteran guitarist/vocalist Wes Caley (ex-Exhumed, ex-Uphill Battle), bassist Art Hayes, and drummer Tyler Castro bring the rumble with great songwriting, fierce attitude, and menacing feeling; just the way it was meant to be played. Hear for yourself why James Hoare of Terrorizer praised Fatalist for playing "Swedish death metal like the masters" and shredding "the old way."
