“UPHEAVAL OF DISEASE TOUR 2016 – 3rd – 16th June!
Its with great pleasure that Killtown Bookings presents the first European performances of PISSGRAVE! The very first show ever on European soil will take place at Temples fest in Bristol on June 3rd 2016! After their performance they will embark on a European crusade of death and destruction with Danish upcommers Phrenelith.
With the release of 2015´s “Suicide Euphoria”, Pissgrave received a lot of praise from the metal media where Cvlt Nation awarded them with “Best Death Metal Album of 2015”. After touring the US in 2014 with death metal mastodons Dead Congregation, Pissgrave is now finally ready to take over Europe!
Phrenelith from Copenhagen, Denmark who share current and former members with Undergang and Mold will join them on tour. Phrenelith was nominated in “CVLT Nation’s Top Eight Demos of 2015” for their first demo on “Extremely Rotten Productions” which has also been very well received in the metal underground.

PISSGRAVE (us) – Profound Lore Records
Pissgrave aimlessly destroy with their barrage of violent, raw, and depraved death metal. They have earned much praise in the American metal underground, especially after supporting Dead Congregation on a short U.S. tour in the fall of 2014 – which showcased the band’s devastating live set. Their debut release Suicide Euphoria (Profound Lore Records) has been hailed by many as one of the best underground death metal releases of 2015.
“It’s one of the nearest things to a perfect slaughter that one is likely to find in 2015. Suicide Euphoria comes out of practically nowhere. With only a demo to their credit, Pissgrave just seemed to walk into this one with cleaver in and and swing it around for thirty minutes, sparing no one in its path” – Metal Injection
“Suicide Euphoria shall remain as one of the most inverted, depraved, insulting, negative, ass-backwards and anti-human albums to see the light in 2015” – Cvlt Nation
“Suicide Euphoria sounds like a man skinned alive dipping into a bathtub full of sea salt. If and when you learn to love the sensation of alcohol numbing your open wound, infiltrating your seared flesh and exacerbating raw pain, you will get hooked on this.” – Echoes and Dust
PHRENELITH (dk) – Extremely Rotten Productions
Phrenelith was formed sometime in the year 2014 and was rehearsal dwelling for most of the year, before recording their two track debut demo in over a time span of 3 months and then releasing it 3 months later through Extremely Rotten Productions in March 2015. Not long after the recruited their bassist and started playing gigs and a 2nd demo entitled “Veiled Verses” was recorded as a 4 piece and released later in 2015. The band has so far played a few shows in Denmark, Germany and Poland and are currently finishing their debut album which are set to be recorded during the spring of 2016.
Phrenelith plays a dark, filthy, low tuned, blackened, raw brand of death metal spiked with dual death grunts, not for anyone craving clarity or pleasant production values. Always with the memorable riffs in focus and drums varying from steamrolling slowness to meat grinding speed, Phrenelith aims at making your ears and eyes bleed.
