Formed by Derek Orthner (Begrime Exemious), BW (Draghkar, Skullsmasher) and Andrew Lee (Ripped to Shreds), Azath craft
hyperviolent death metal influenced by Incantation and other equally insalubrious yet less dense metal bands. Three nasty atmospheric gems of brutal gutturality and insanely inventive riffage. Nefarious stuff.
