The latest offering from the Ljubljana quartet hist all the right strings if you like your death metal pitch-black, with hints of old-school, thrash backbone and fast, raw, approach.

For fans of Possessed, Morbid Angel, Grotesque.

The darkest ritual unfolds in front of you, as Slovenian blasphemers ENSANGUINATE release their new song “Lowermost Baptisms” unto the unprepared world. The latest offering from the Ljubljana quartet hits all the right strings if you like your death metal pitch-black, with hints of old-school, thrash backbone and fast, raw approach.

""Lowermost Baptisms" was heavily inspired by Slovenian literature and its bleak, often morbid outlook on life throughout history", adds frontman and lyricist Andrej Cuk. "The lyrics describe a religious pilgrimage devolving into Bacchanalia; the combination of Christian imagery with sin and transgression is a powerful one and was an immediate fit for the unhinged, violent nature of the song. The Devil is present in all of us; we are all the Adversary both to ourselves and to those around us, and "Lowermost Baptisms" is our homage to this very darkness, a pact with the Devil Within, joined in a communion of blood".

“Lowermost Baptisms” kicks off Ensanguinate’s promotion work for what will be their debut full-length album "Eldritch Anatomy", to be released later this year on Emanzipation

Formed in 2020, Ensanguinate is Slovenia's putrid entry into the death metal grimoire of old. Leaning heavily on the genre's occult beginnings, the band stand out by distilling Possessed, Morbid Angel and Grotesque into a searing death/thrash assault that deviates from today's run-of-the-mill death metal.

Released to positive reviews in August 2020, the debut demo “Entranced by Decay” featured four tracks of blistering death metal described by No Clean Singing as “An electrifying, neck-cracking romp packed with jittery and jolting fretwork as well as monstrous echoing growls and livid howls”.

"Eldritch Anatomy", the debut full-length album of Ensanguinate, will be released in the second half of 2022 by Emanzipation Productions.
