Unearthly Rites - Ink Deal With Prosthetic Records

Unearthly Rites, a Finnish death metal formation, are pleased to announce the signing to Prosthetic Records for the release of their debut full length offering Ecdysis on May 3rd. Recorded, mixed and mastered inside Black Floyd's Analog Studio by Tapio Lepistö with assistance from Simo Perkiömäki. For a preview of the upcoming new music, give a listen to the title track.

Simo Perkiömäki (guitar) comments: "We’re thrilled to announce our signing with Prosthetic Records for our absolutely mind snaring debut album Ecydsis, coming out on May 3."

Vocalist Sisli Piisilä adds: "Ecdysis is a dystopian journey in defense of nature, from the filthy bunkers where old school death metal and DIY punk attitude shake hands.”

Of the title track and music video, Sisli continues: "The title song came from a scene I walked by in the wilderness, a deer that had been ripped up in pieces by wolves. Its fur covered the ground everywhere, leaving only bare bones in sight as the carcass had already offered a feast for the animals of the forest. Ecdysis is about disappointment with modern humanity, wishing to shed one’s skin to join something earthier instead."
