Swedish death-metal purists Miasmal ripped a void through the underground with their demo, inciting vinyl pressings of the limited-to-250 cassette by Detest Records/Nuclear War Now. Chunky riffage paid homage to the early output from their countrymen/originators like Entombed and Dismember, and the band followed the demo with a 7" EP for Detest (currently sold-out, up for repress this summer).

Now as the band is poised to strike the US with an unfuckwitable touring lineup of Hatred Surge/Innumerable Forms/Mammoth Grinder, Miasmal has released their latest ode to the darkness, an eponymous LP on Dark Descent. The new Miasmal CD is available now via the label, and features the galloping death machine known as "Death Mask" (which is premiering in this post) and "Toxic Breed". Check out both tracks which are streaming below.

As stated above and previously posted, Miasmal is on the road this summer to play two of the biggest festivals in heavy music, Maryland Deathfest and Chaos in Tejas. They'll play dates along the way including NYC at The Acheron on May 24th. All other tour dates and that track stream is below.
