HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL: 'Larvas' Cover Artwork Unveiled

Portuguese legendary death/grind outfit HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL has revealed the cover artwork for its upcoming opus, "Larvas", to be released via Bizarre Leprous Production.

Conceived by guitarist Eduardo F., the cover portrays a bloody eye being open by surgical tools while a worm silently slithers into the iris.

According to Eduardo, "The whole ideia of this release is to mark the transition between our previous album 'Gorefilia' and the new songs we're already working on.

"'Larvas' is Portuguese for 'larvae,' and somehow we wanted to pass the image of a rotten body infested by worms (which represent 'Gorefilia'), while one of those worms silently crawls into a brand new body (the new songs). This worm is this new opus: rotten, ugly, slimy and fat — which actually are some of the words we can use to describe these songs!"

"Larvas" was recorded at 213 Studios in Portugal by producer Bruno Silva (HEAVENWOOD, GRUNT) and was mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio (BEHEMOTH, VADER, DECAPITATED, KRONOS, ABORTED, LOST SOUL) in Bialystok, Poland, by Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawsky.

The band previously described "Larvas", which contains four new songs, as a continuation of "Gorefilia"'s approach to paraphillias, involving sexual arousal and gratification towards sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme, while the music evolved into something faster and brutal, but maintaining the grooviest side of the band presented in the previous opus.

Commenting on the recent deal signed with Bizarre Leprous Production, HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL bassist Z. Pedro stated: “It's with huge pride and accomplishment that I can say that HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL joined the Bizarre Leprous Production family. We've been fans of the label and its releases and we know Roman for a long time and can honestly say that this was undoubtedly the best choice for this release due to their hard work and their own cult mark on the scene!"

Added HOLOCAUSTO CANIBAL drummer Diogo P.: “Personally, I'm very stoked for being working with Roman and the rest of the Bizarre Leprous Production crew. We've known each other for a long time and we know his work and ultra intense distribution around the globe, so I'm very sure that 2014 will be a good year for us! Also, it is amazing to join the ranks of such cult acts as INGROWING, PIGSTY, JIG-AI, AHUMADO GRANUJO, BLOOD, and HAEMORRHAGE."
