Conjureth Releases Foul Formations EP

Conjureth, a project of Decrepitaph personnel, released its new EP Foul Formations on February 15, 2020, featuring more of its hybrid between Incantation and Immolation style mid-paced trudging death metal.

Supuration sounds like a rock hybrid that borders on modern metal but with much depth and just as unique but requiring many more listens to dig past the highly accessible aesthetics. Here are a few tools that Supuration used to create the most unique album in Death metal.
