nasty old school death metal

From Drenthe (NL) comes the Old School Death Metal band Departed Souls.

The band was formed in 2013 when old friends met again after 20 years.

From 1989 until 1994 the band members played together in several local Death Metal bands. After that they all went several ways with several bands.

While being both fanatic metalrecord collectors, Rai and Alwin came back in contact in 2013.

And so they decided to form a new band and play the music they loved since they were youngsters; Death Metal. And not the nowadays perfect produced technical Death Metal….no…. it should sound like the old demo-trading days back in 1989/1990. Raw, dirty and unpolished. Two other friends from the old days, Nick and Erik, soon joined and the band started to write material.

In 2014 the band released the ‘Demo 2014’ cd/cassette and were signed by ‘Ancient Darkness Productions’ from Denmark to release their debut mini-album ‘Barbaric Tortures’ on the first of May 2015. A cassette-version from the album was released by ‘Unholy Prophecies’ label.

Departed Souls plays Old School Nasty Rotting Death Metal exclusively.
