Blasting forth from the guts of Erie, Pennsylvania, a vicious new act is about to invade the death metal universe, with the debut full-length from EXTINCTION PROTOCOL, confirmed for release via NYC-based D.I.Y. label P2.
Formed in 2010, EXTINCTION PROTOCOL merges classic death metal structures with breakdowns and grooves of modern, guttural slam while infusing the darkness of dissonant black metal into the proverbial cataclysmic blender. A nihilist death metal vortex, EXTINCTION PROTOCOL's debut album, Aeonic Obliteration lyrically scrutinizes the greed and corruption of mankind thus concluding mankind's eventual downfall due to genetic testing and world altering events. With nine devastating songs packed into nearly a nearly thirty-three minute event horizon, Aeonic Obliteration features stellar production values courtesy of Ivan at Anthropocide Studios (Abominable Putridity) and full-color cosmic destruction ala JoeJesus of DeviantArt, and will see release on May 14th worldwide.
New York-based P2, while a fairly young label, is based upon disbursing quality material over quantity, the curators of its releases focused on maintaining more of a devout cult status within the extreme underground music world rather than sales-based mass appeal. P2 has released a 7" version of NYC sci-fi/tech death metal outfit Artificial Brain's 2011 demo, and is preparing to unleash the vinyl pressing of New York death/gore kingpins Malignancy's newest album, Eugenics, in addition to the debut from EXTINCTION PROTOCOL and more over the coming months.
