Cruciamentum was formed in England during 2007 and recorded their first demo, “Rotten Flesh Crucifix” which was limited to 30 copies in 2008. The second demo, “Convocation of Crawling Chaos” was released in 2009 and led to the band quickly signing to Nuclear Winter Records. 2011 saw both the release of “Eroding Chaos unto Ascendant Flesh” (released on Hell’s Headbangers), a split 7” with Vasaleth from the US, and the MLP/CD “Engulfed in Desolation” (released on Nuclear Winter Records).
Cruciamentum have played live extensively throughout their short career, and have built a reputation of being a powerful live act. They have toured Europe with Sonne Adam (Century Media Records), twice in the US with Anhedonist (Dark Descent Records), performed at festivals such as Maryland Deathfest (US), Chaos in Tejas (US), Hell’s Pleasure (Ger), Kill-Town Deathfest (Den), NRW Deathfest (Ger), Black Mass Ritual III (Fin), Martydroom Festival (US), as well as having performed numerous dates in Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Greece and Romania amongst others.

CORPSESSED (fin) – Dark Descent Records / Me Saco Un Ojo
Corpsessed was spawned from putrescent slime in 2007 at the rotting houses of delta-area Järvenpää, Finland. The 5-piece band started honing their abysmal Death Metal tunes and officially released their first EP titled “The Dagger & The Chalice” on CD by Dark Descent Records (us) and on vinyl by Me Saco Un Ojo (uk) in 2011.
Corpsessed’s debut full length album titled “Abysmal Thresholds” was released in the beginning of 2014, and has strengthened the band as one of the current torch bearers of Finnish Death Metal.
The band is known for their dark brand of death metal that harks back to the old days of early 90s and has received high praise for their hard-hitting and suffocating live shows, appearing in such festivals as Tuska (fin), SteelFest (fin), Kill-Town Death Fest (dk) and NRW Death Fest (d) throughout the past 5 years.

“All in all, it´s another triumph for the Finnish scene, and also an effective reminder of how harsh, ugly and harrowing death metal can be”. – 8/10
– TERRORIZER #246
“The Dagger & The Chalice”:
“this is ugly music for ugly people, straight from the unholy grave. Despite an overcrowded death metal scene these days, Corpsessed have enough quality to be one of the leaders of the pack – expect great things from this band”
– Callum Brownson-Smith/ZERO TOLERANCE
