DERKÉTA - To Reissue In Death We Meet Full-Length Via Ibex Moon

Pittsburgh (USA) based cult doom/death collective, Derkéta - featuring members from Novembers Doom, Penance, Demonomacy, Cattle Decapitation and more will reissue their soul-swallowing In Death We Meet full-length via Ibex Moon later this month. In Death We Meet was initially mixed and mastered by Rickey Budway and released independently in 2012. Remixed by Grave's Ola Lindgren at Studio Soulless, In Death We Meet redux includes bonus track, "Darkness Fades Life" a cover of Sepultura's "Troops Of Doom" (both recorded and mixed by Matt Schor at The War Room) and thrusts forth a sound that sits at the very apex of devouring, coffin-toned grimness. In Death We Meet will reemerge on CD via Ibex Moon Records on 16th June with a wax edition featuring four additional live tracks to surface on 6th November. Devout followers of Winter, early-era My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost and true old school brutality, pay heed.
Derkéta - a named derived from Stygian Mythology: the goddess of death of a blood drinking cult -- is a doom-influenced four-piece widely acknowledged as the first all-female death metal band. Forged in 1988 by guitarist/vocalist Sharon Bascovsky and drummer Terri Heggen, Derkéta spent the past two decades in varying degrees of activity, having released several demos throughout the years. In 2009, guitarist Mary Bielich (Behind Enemy Lines, Novembers Doom, Penance etc.) and bassist Robin Mazen (Castrators, Gruesome, ex-Demonomacy etc.) joined the line-up and began working on what would become their debut full-length, In Death We Meet. Following its recording, Heggen fled the band to pursue other interests and was replaced by Mike Laughlin (Creation Is Crucifixion, Cattle Decapitation) making for their most stable and active line-up to date. Fueled by a desire to stay true to themselves, Derkéta's musical principles are cemented in the spirit of death metal's early years and as such will never fall to the temptation of popular trends. Preorders for In Death We Meet are currently available at this location. Link
