Deformatory - EP “Harbinger”

What's New: New Release

As a meteorite taken in the face, I propose you to discover the group "Deformatory"... It will hurt.
Ottawa, Canada's Deformatory are pleased to announce their new EP “Harbinger”, which was meticulously produced by Topon Das of F*ck The Facts at his studio Apartment 2 Recording ( and is now being presented in its entirety in one special music video. A barrage of deadly riffs, pummeling drums and unholy gutturals will rip through you in true death metal fashion. The band explains in their own words:
“Every song, every riff, and every beat writhes through its own iterations to devour the listener beyond this EP’s 15-minute runtime. Make no mistake: these are 15-minutes you will never get back and you will never recover from. The sheer energy your soul requires to withstand this offering of musical violence will render your very core into a depleted version of itself.”
The video encapsulates exactly what Deformatory brings to the stage - no frills. No bullshit. Just straight-up death metal. The goal is to leave people wondering what the hell just happened. A maniacal frenzy.
The EP's music video can be seen and heard via its premiere on NoCleanSinging HERE:
or Youtube directly:
From their destructive 2013 debut “In The Wake of Pestilence”, on through their crushing 2016 follow-up “Malediction” and into the vortex of insanity from their 2021 masterpiece “Inversion of the Unseen Horizon”, Deformatory unrelentingly summon their creative darkness to deliver another slab of ferocious Canadian death metal.
To visually encapsulate the extreme onslaught on "Harbinger", the artwork was masterfully created by the one and only Paolo Girardi. He has, without any doubt, unveiled one of his best paintings to date for this EP's cover. Additional haunting artistic creations were devilishly assembled by UK’s Adrian Baxter to further highlight the darkness that binds the death metal brutality of Deformatory’s new EP.
Without acquiescing to the weakness of modern metal, they reach deep into the abyss of infernal intensity to deliver a new offering of blistering madness for those who enjoy heavy, unforgiving bludgeoning sounds similar to Vitriol, old Cryptopsy, and Origin.
This is unequivocal vitriolic rage. This is uncompromising animosity.
This is not trendy. This is not a safe place.
This is a maelstrom of maniacal death metal.
You have been warned.
Heed the Harbinger’s call.
“Harbinger” is available as of September 13, 2022.

EP Band Line Up:​

"A maniacal riff-fest colliding with pulverizing drumming and grotesquely executed vocals, Impaled Upon The Carrionspire is a memorable journey into a modern death metal portal of chaos. This is beyond a brutal wall of sound; it’s an experience that hooks you in, and guides you through everything you can expect to hear on the new album." - Metal Injection
"Taking cues from the tech-est and brutal-est of brutal technical death metal, the duo from Canada’s capital have offered up a shining gut punch that sings, screams, wallops, growls and races in the same vein as genre masterclass mainstays as Immolation, Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal and Origin. Plus, their name fucking rules!" - Decibel Magazine
"Brutally punchy and laced with annihilating streaks of black metal, cosmic machinations are put into bone-snapping focus through the band's unrelenting technical death metal." - Invisible Oranges
"Let’s cut to the chase: Imagine filling a syringe with unadulterated adrenaline, sticking it straight into your carotid artery, and jamming the plunger down with as much force as you can muster. That’s the effect of listening to DEFORMATORY… The whole thing is breathtaking in its careening and cavorting violence." - No Clean Singing
