Vitriol:  release new single "Crowned in Retaliation" and kick off presale for debut record "To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice"!

On September 6, 2019, Century Media Records will release “To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice”, the first album by Portland, Oregon’s death metal group VITRIOL.

Fronted by the dual vocal assault given from guitarist Kyle Rasmussen and bassist Adam Roethlisberger, driven by the inhuman drummer Scott Walker, VITRIOL proved to make a successful strike at the genre's heart with their 2017 EP, "Pain Will Define Their Death". Released via Italy's Everlasting Spew, it already provided a shockingly intense glimpse at the whirlwind that is to be unfurled on the much anticipated debut record, "To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice".

With ‘Crowned in Retaliation’, VITRIOL now release the first single from the album.

Kyle Rasmussen comments:

"Endeavoring to create dynamic songwriting while never sacrificing relentlessness -- both in terms of pace and tone -- is one of Vitriol's creative north stars. I feel that we accomplished that in a special way with Crowned in Retaliation. It does a very good job of showing you the face of To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice."

Featuring classy artwork by Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Krisiun, Angelcorpse), the album offers 44 minutes of utmost sincere and vicious music embodying a radicalness and personality rarely heard within the genre.

“To Bathe from the Throat of Cowardice” will be released on vinyl, as digipak CD, and on all digital platforms, presales are available here

Shortly after the album’s release, VITRIOL will join Nile’s A Vile Desolate Sands Tour 2019 kicking off September 10, marking the band’s first visit to Europe!
