  • Second Press Physical Copy of Wretched Host on Selfmadegod Records
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    New Brunswick, NJ based technical death metal band DYSTROPHY has just signed a deal with Selfmadegod Records to release their new full length entitled “Wretched Host”. The band including Peter Lloyd (guitars), Peter Brown (guitars, vocals), Gregory Bueno (vocals, bass) and Matthew Thompson (drums) tracked and mixed the album at One Stone Recording Studio, and mastered it at West West Side Music.

    “Wretched Host”, the 2nd full length, was initially self-released by the band this last June with small amount of copies made available directly from the band. Few months later the release caught attention of Polish label Selfmadegod which lead to signing official deal and proper worldwide release.

    The follow-up to 2010’s „Chains Of Hypocrisy” is set for November 16th 2015 release on CD/digital. “Singularity” is the first song from the upcoming album available for listening and can be streamed at Selfmadegod Records’ SoundCloud or YouTube channel.
    Formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 2007, Dystrophy spawned from a DIY ethic that has stuck with the band to this day. Progressing from the rapid technical approach of their first album, “Chains Of Hypocrisy”, Dystrophy have since refined their style on their next release, “Wretched Host”; an intensely personal tale of mental health woven into a dissonant style of technical death metal.

    DYSTROPHY plays progressive and technical death metal that will appeal to fans of DEATH, GORGUTS, ATHEIST, VOIVOD, RIPPING CORPSE, HUMANS REMAINS, DEATHSPELL OMEGA and the likes.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Wretched Host via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Psychic torture made flesh
Born of an idle existence
The subconscious eats at the greater self
The pitiful ego defiled

Agonized into self-immolation

The first waves of nausea take hold
Vital tissue necrotized by bile
Mental torment matched by physical pain
A being turned on itself to wither and die

The catalyst is within the mind
Bodily decompensation follows

We dwell deep in the throes of madness
Forced to despise the natural human state
Chemically lobotomized in vain to stall the decay
The physical degradation is never-ending

The delusions are unleashed at last
The rot freed to consume anatomy
Acknowledgment of the rise of disease
Precedes the vascular infestation
The final remains of consciousness
Fade away

The catalyst is within the mind
Bodily decompensation follows

The eyes of the mind betray
The instincts for self-preservation


from Wretched Host, released November 16, 2015
