We have teamed up with Jesus Metal, Divine Metal Distro, Metal Blessing Radio, EEE Recordings & Sullen Records to put together a new online forum!
We would love if you would join the forum and take part in the discussions!
OPEN GRAVE RECORDS is pleased to be partnering with SewerSound Records for the signing of REHUMANIZE.
REHUMANIZE was born in May of 2007 as a project of Broc Toney of Eternal Mystery, and Baphomet Evisceration on guitar & bass, and Phil Diez of Sorrowstorm, Encryptor, and Northern Ash on vocals & drums as a tool to take The Gospel into a scene full of depravity. REHUMANIZE brings back the sounds of old school grindcore like few are doing today, think early Napalm Death, Carcass and Brutal Truth amongst others. With two split albums already under their belt, REHUMANIZE is currently putting the final touches on their debut full length album, “Resident Apostasy” with a plan to release in early 2009.
