Founded in Ottawa in 2010 with a singular purpose to transform raw aggression into music, ACCURSED SPAWN mixes influences from old and new forms of extreme metal, resulting to date in a renowned energetic live show, and a handful of recorded songs.
Set to unleash their debut infection "The Virulent Host" on March 22, 2019, via PRC Music, the band is spreading their virus of extreme metal with the new music video for the album's title track via MetalInjection.net.
"The Virulent Host grapples with a hypothetical human extinction, told from the perspective of the last person on earth. It is one of our favourite songs on the album and always gets people moving in the pit. Joe and James from Dark Moon Productions did a fantastic job with the video, and Capital Rehearsal Studios was gracious enough to let us take up not one, but both sides of the building." - Adam Pell (vocals/guitar).

With a unique sound and style that stands apart from the crowd, ACCURSED SPAWN's debut full length is the next step in the band's evolution of musical expression to follow a mix of demos and EPs since 2010.
"The Virulent Host" is a fiery and passionate take on modern death metal, influenced by thrash and brutal death that stands head and shoulders above many of their contemporaries. The production quality truly stands among the titans of death metal, thanks to Chris Donaldson, guitarist for legendary death metal unit Cryptopsy applying his talents and experience to mix and master the album at The Grid Studios in Montreal, QC. Donaldson has previously worked on records for high profile names such as Cryptopsy, Beyond Creation, Despised Icon, The Agonist, Beneath The Massacre, and Neuraxis. The artwork was done by highly esteemed artist Remy Cooper of Headsplit Design (Origin, Beyond Creation, Psycroptic, Pig Destroyer, Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, Cryptopsy, Suicide Silence, Arch Enemy).
