i. Intoxicated Lacerations

iv. Evocation of Necromimesis
WELTER IN THY BLOOD was formed in 2006 with the intent of giving a soundtrack to the extinction of the human race. Their elegies speak of their virulent hate for the human existence and the lauding of death and solitude. Revealed through a staggering funeral cadence and guttural ululations is the feeling of absolute torment and despondency. WELTER IN THY BLOOD musically coalesced self mutilation and misanthropy with the urge for voluntary human extinction, coining the term "Suicide is a Virtue."
Drawing upon all its misanthropic hate, WELTER IN THY BLOOD released its first album, "The Grim Visage Of Death", in 2008. This three-song, one-sided LP was released through Black Goat Records and limited to only 200 copies.
WELTER IN THY BLOOD will be featured on an eight-band split that will be released through Choking Hazard Records sometime this year. This split CD will feature such bands as ATAVIST, THE AUSTRASIAN GOAT, and MOLOCH.
