VULNIFICUS was formed in October 2021 with the idea of bringing death metal back to its early sounding roots, but maintaining the modern sounding intensity.
VULNIFICUS attempted to push death metal back to its limits with their debut "INNOMINATION" released November 26, 2021. INNOMINATION was recorded, mixed and mastered at Demolition Studios with additional recording/mixing of vocals by E. Browne at BWNTWN STN. Drawing comparisons to old Cannibal Corpse, Condemned, Defeated Sanity, Mortician and others, VULNIFICUS signed a deal with New Standard Elite and shortly released their debut single "Induced Rampage".
After the successful feedback of "INNOMINATION", VULNIFICUS began to record the follow up to their debut EP in December 2021, titled "INVOCATION". Completed at Demolition Studios again, VULNIFICUS blast, grind and shred their way with 5 tracks of audio devastation blending influences from the past and present. "INVOCATION" released June 10, 2022 to an overwhelming response from fans and put the brutal death community on notice with the release of their singles "Coerced Into Compliance" and "The Incredulous Invocation"
The success of "INVOCATION" led to scheduling their first tour with grind legends Deterioration for September 2022 and an exclusive tour tape compilation titled "INEXPLICABLE" released exclusively on Denses Records in Indonesia (limited to 100 copies) in August 2022. This compilation is a mixture of both EPs "INNOMINATION" and "INVOCATION" which quickly sold out for collectors. Unfortunately, the first tour in the bands history could not be completed as VULNIFICUS goes through a member change. Shortly after, due to popular demand, "INEXPLICABLE" sees a digital release in December 2022, containing demo versions of their released music and 4 new unreleased tracks that never saw the light of day.
Left as the sole member of VULNIFICUS, Eston recruits Jamison Parker (Prophecy of Suffering), Mike Jones on bass and Evan Daniele (Dead and Dripping) on guitar. Together with the completed lineup, VULNIFICUS prepares to debut this group for their next offering on New Standard Elite. After forming, VULNIFICUS prepares to usher in the new and improved sound with their third EP titled "INEXTRICABLE" due to release November 3, 2023.
