VITRIOL Announce Debut Album “To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice” for 06 September Release


On 06 September, 2019, Century Media Records will release “To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice”, the first album by Portland, Oregon’s death metal group VITRIOL

Fronted by the dual vocal assault given from guitarist Kyle Rasmussen and bassist Adam Roethlisberger, driven by the inhuman drummer Scott Walker, VITRIOL proved to make a successful strike at the genre’s heart with their 2017 EP, “Pain Will Define Their Death”. Released via Italy’s Everlasting Spew, it already provided a shockingly intense glimpse at the whirlwind that is to be unfurled on the much anticipated debut record, “To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice”.

Featuring classy artwork by Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Krisiun, Angelcorpse), the album offers 44 minutes of utmost sincere and vicious music embodying a radicalness and personality rarely heard within the genre.

Rasmussen states: “The spirit of VITRIOL is to take the uncompromising, thrashy, punky, spirit of the late 90s extreme death and bring it to a world that has been numbed by records that have abandoned all life in favor of shrink wrapped, candy coated articulation,”

“To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice” will include the following tracks:

1. The Parting of a Neck
2. Crowned in Retaliation
3. Legacy of Contempt
4. I Drown Nightly
5. The Rope Calls You Brother
6. A Gentle Gift
7. Violence, a Worthy Truth
8. Victim
9. Hive Lungs
10. Pain Will Define Their Death

Shortly after the album’s release, VITRIOL will join Nile’s A Vile Desolate Sands Tour 2019 kicking off on 10 September. VITRIOL comments: “We have the true honor to be entering Europe for the first time with the kings in Nile and Hate Eternal. The weight of this opportunity is not lost on us, and it is one we will approach with respect and sincere devotion.”
