WHARFLURCH Psychedelic Realms Ov Hell CD
Formed in the swampy summer of 2019, WHARFLURCH is the bastard brain excrement of two Floridian heathens (who also do time in D-beat death-mongers Hot Graves) who desired to made the world a more drippy, disgusting place for human scum to writhe in. Thus, a death metal sound influenced by the horrific doom found in uncharted areas of space and the malaise of swamp madness was envisioned, and mind-crushing riffs and concepts were conjured.
Recording began in mid-2019, with MC handling all instrumental duties, while JM (normally behind a drum kit in all previous bands) took on the vocal attack. Primitive demos were tracked, and the four-song Demo 2019 was unleashed digitally. Even with nearly zero promotion, the response was eerily enthusiastic among comrades of the band. Still wishing to refine and strengthen the sound without losing the bizarre atmospherics, writing began for a new demo recording process that would bring the horror even more into focus. In early 2020, the recording began for Lurking Doom, the first official EP from WHARFLURCH, which found the depths of cosmic death worship even deeper and more obscure than before.
