Cemetery Whore is dead, long live Rites of Daath! Having changed the name, the guys also changed their musical preferences and shifted towards that raw sounding and obscure death metal in the vein of Dead Congregation and the like. From the 'Hexing Graves' intro through the fifth and last track on this release, 'Most Holy Death', Rites of Daath focus on mid- and fast tempos, with some blasts on the one hand, and some doomy parts on the other hand, guttural or shrieking vocals, harsh riffing, pounding bass guitar and drums parts, all immersed in gloomy and sick atmosphere, sounding evil and claustrophobic, and delivering some high quality material that fans of the already mentioned Greeks, but also those of some of the current English, Australian and American death metal acts will definitely love to listen to over and over again. Twenty-plus minutes of uncompromising, relentless and slaughtering death metal - an EP you cannot afford to miss!

"Playing squarely into the tradition of doom-infused death metal that the aforementioned Incantation invented oh-so-many years ago with the back to back classics Onward to Golgotha and Mortal Throne of Nazarene, these Polish heavyweights aren’t afraid to take it low and slow, spending the first quarter of Hexing Graves‘ runtime – the entire eponymous opener and the first two minutes of “Necromantic Rites of the Underground” – building up to the nuclear blast furnace riff that finally hits around the 2:15 mark of track two. Listeners soon have their heads swiveled the other way, though, as Rites of Daath pivots excellently from the crushing heaviness of American death-doom into a fantastic melody that smacks of Swedeath influence, and soon meld the two styles into a track that bridges the two discreet scenes and joins them in a truly unholy matrimony. The three remaining tracks follow suit in their mission of bringing scalding death metal furor to the listener’s ears, and the ensuing 15 minutes that tracks three to five take up are a truly wild ride."

"Polish newcomers Rites Of Daath come up with quite a fascinating mini album. The first few minutes are slow, haunting and gnawing pieces of doom inspired death metal but then suddenly, all hell breaks loose. The tempo goes up - severely - and elements from melodic Scandinavian death metal start blasting through the thick, downtune wall of sound. From then on, Rites Of Daath seem to maintain a firm grasp on the listener with a short but well varied effort. Death metal fans, rejoice, this might as well become one of your new favorites. This is brutal, harsh, relentless and vile, exactly the things you like."

Track Name: Hexing Graves
What have we became?
a desert
a fallen temple
of the rotten flesh
a death's monument
timeless ageless
desecrated deformed
by the winds of time
Track Name: Necromantic Rites of the Underground
Arcane order is wandering
through the time
with a mission to preserve
the only posthumous light
a flame burning deep
in the underground
a chosen few cleansed
from the grief of life

Unholy melodeclamation
chants of the dead

Through the necromantic rites of the underground
through the necromantic rites man becomes god

Sons of Adam are holding
the key to it all
Vale of Hinnom
and the grave of the God
soil is soaked with
the blood of the fools
who betrayed the pact
sealed with their own lifes

Unholy melodeclamation
chants of the dead

Through the necromantic rites of the underground
through the necromantic rites man becomes
Track Name: Sepulchral Phantom
This is the darkest night
when all of the sacred icons
will be covered in spit
smeared with blood
children of dark tribe
are gathering at the graves
prepering for the sabbath
festival of sin

Hidden evil
now is unchained
possessed prayers
are feasting in endless ecstasy

Sacred paths below
ancient epitaphs
God looked down at the Earth
the devil rode out

Profaned shrines
opened graves
fallen monuments
consumed by fires
prime fires of daath

Sepulchral phantom raise
summoned by the chants
raise and embrace us all

Raise
Track Name: Bitter Entrails of the Earth
With an empty eyes and will
broken by disdain
conquerors of yesterday
casted away from their nests

There is no darker night
than the one that ends this world
fired by a torch
kinded by words and gestures
world is coming to an end
throught the bitter entrails of the Earth
falling away from it's tyrants
slowly slipping into the abyss

With no grace or glory
with no preachers
to preach their gospels
with no blessed tongues
ripping through the bitter
entrails of the Earth

Self-made mythology
left minds in disdain
a black ruined statue
reminds the old days

Ripping through
the earth's black entrails
the mind is the key
and the flesh is the gate

Ripping through the earth's black entrails
Track Name: Most Holy Death
Falling into crypts
of the most holy death
singing chants of anguish
suffering despair
these chambers wear a mark
of her cryptic breath
bones whiten in the dark
in unending scare
mournful prayers tortured
souls araise ascend
mournful prayers save a fool
from the certain dread
lure me to a place where
only darkness blends
to forgotten paths and lonely
graves where no one dares to tread

Not to devour
not to die
a life eternal
in the most holy lie

Exposed to the black rays
from the world below
I drift away in solitude
my pilgrimage
chants of dead as a guide
to a deathly glow
here is my place to die
spectral orphanage

Hold me
in your
permanent frost

Not to devour
not to die
a life eternal
in the most holy lie
