OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS, in conspiracy with HELLS HEADBANGERS, is proud to present Pete Helmkamp’s second ABHOMINE album titled Proselyte Parasite Plague.
Available in 2020 on CD and vinyl LP.
In 2016, Pete Helmkamp released his debut solo project ABHOMINE Larvae Offal Swine. Philosophically, Larvae Offal Swine is a composition of social, artistic, and existential modes which reflect our reality. Musically, ABHOMINE creates a heaving, grinding mass hypnosis of discord and abject sonic cruelty: the intrepid and enlightened listener plunges willfully into its mental wreckage and violence. Helmkamp is known as an underground legend for his bands: Order From Chaos, Angelcorpse, Revenge, Kerasphorus, Terror Organ, and Feldgrau.
In 2020, Pete Helmkamp will release his second ABHOMINE album titled Proselyte Parasite Plague, in affiliation with Cazz Grant, known for his bands Crucifier and Grand Belial’s Key. Together they conjure a scathing frightening oracle that transcends today’s musical standards. At the forefront is Helmkamp’s unmistakable iron/fire throat, furious hypnagogic guitar and brute bass attack. Grant delivers a shrieking black murk on vocals and indomitable drums. ABHOMINE Proselyte Parasite Plague is a rearrangement of the paradox which grips the subconscious. Helmkamp’s second creation unshackles the traditional norms of black and death metal with shapeshifting riffs ushered in by ruthless drumming.
For the last three decades, Helmkamp and Grant have been pioneers in the black death underground genre. They have remained firm in their convictions and declarations. With ABHOMINE Proselyte Parasite Plague, listeners will bear witness to Helmkamp’s ominous prophetic foreshadowing while rejoicing in the trenches as the shells fall.
