__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Excruciation have signed a worldwide deal with Wormholedeath/Aural Music
for the release of
[c]rust that will be produced by Wahoomi Corvi and will be unleashed during 2016.
The band
will enter the studio on August the 17th 2015 and is now very busy with songwriting.

[c]rust will represent the band's deeper step into darkness and will be released in collaboration with the bands own label Auric Records.
With [c]rust, Excruciation will forge their versatile influences ranging from
80s Dark Wave and Crustcore to oldschool Black and Doom Metal into a new piece of extreme metal! Behold!


WormHoleDeath/Aural Music stated:

"We are honored to work with such a cult band and we will do everything possible to support their work at the best possible level. We have asked them to go deeper than they did with [G]HOST as we are willing to expose the essence of EXCRUCIATION, the skeleton of this band. We will expose the violence and straight downward energy that lies within EXCRUCIATION. They told us, human flesh and skin is the crust that keeps us standing. But like rust eats iron, life decomposes the shell and nothing more than dust and bones will remain."
