Hypnagogic Hallucinations, the demented and bludgeoning debut album from Rome, Italy’s macabre death metal outfit, BEDSORE, is now streaming in its entirety YouTube.
BEDSORE’s Hypnagogic Hallucinations is a debut album of considerable imagination and subconscious peculiarity, an uninhibited first step for a band emboldened to travel to the farthest reaches of the possible within the celestial spheres of death metal.
Hypnagogic Hallucinations was mixed and mastered by Marco S. (Malokarpatan, Mayhem, Thulsa Doom, Demonomancy) and features guest vocals/synth from Giorgio Trombino (Assumption Haemophagus) on the track “Cauliflower Growth.” The record’s artwork and layout illustrations were handled by T. Ketola (Dead Congregation, Necros Christos, Teitanblood), the layout completed with logo artwork by Samu Salovaara (Krypts, Triumvir Foul) and photography by Void Revelations (Urfaust, Tchnorbog, King Dude). The record is a must-hear release for fans of Ghastly, Black Hole, Morbus Chron, Sweven, Sentenced, Sepulchur, Execration, Venenum, and Goblin.
20 Buck Spin released Hypnagogic Hallucinations on LP, CD, cassette, and digital platforms on, July 24th. Find preorders including merch bundles at the label webshop: https://www.20buckspin.com/collections/bedsore
Warping minds and matter with their two-track 2018 demo, BEDSORE came to the attention of 20 Buck Spin, who together in twisting conspiracy now issues the band’s proper full-length, marking the first Italian band to sign with the label. Hypnagogic Hallucinations is a fitting title for the dark lucid dreamscapes and obscure fantasia BEDSORE delivers on their debut. Like an Argento film, the Roman band paints the canvas of death metal in vivid bright washes of ornamented color and stabs of inventive horror that belies the corporeal grotesquery of the band’s name. Probing into the brain through psychedelic digression and winding hypnotic prog a protean world of weird organic contours and mysterious meaning take shape.
