Mutilation Rites is a filthy black metal band out of Brooklyn that incorporates elements of doom, blackened thrash, and crust with influences including, but not limited to, Darkthrone, Discharge and Dissection. The band started in New York City in the winter of 2009, with the joining of Michael Dimmitt on guitar and Justin Ennis (ex-Tombs) on drums. After a few lineup changes, they solidified with George Paul on second guitar and vocals and Iain Deaderick on bass. Ennis and Paul were in Heuristic out of Boston from 2005-2007. Ennis and Deaderick also played together in Curendera, a short-lived but brutal power-violence/grind band out of Brooklyn.
Thus far, Mutilation Rites has displayed the work ethic and perseverance of a typical DIY band, touring relentlessly on the underground circuit and establishing a grass-roots following across the country. The group released a split 7″ with Batillus in 2011, and they will be recording their Prosthetic debut with Kevin Bernsten (TRIAC) at Developing Nations in Baltimore, MD, with a spring 2012 release eyed.
