Named after the ominous statue seated on a marble grave stone in Lakeview Cemetery, otherwise referred to as ‘The Angel of Death Victorious’, Haserot is a Houston death metal band formed in 2019 by Brandon Johnson and Maurice Eggenschwiler of Doomstress and Blues Funeral respectively. As ideas started to flourish, the pair completed their lineup by tapping talent from several established Houston bands including: Benjamin Yaker (Sanctus Bellum), Cryptos Grimm (Spectral Manifest), and Justin McKittrick (Scrollkeeper).
The band create death metal inspired by the stalwarts of the 90’s whilst incorporating their own modern twists. Throughout their music you can hear sonic references of Morbid Angel, Entombed, Bloodbath, and Carcass. Their music is the culmination of a passion for old school mid-tempo death metal, but with great song structure and melodic lead lines. For the last two years this vision has guided them into writing and recording a bold new EP which is what we present you with today. This clear vision along with the combined experience each band member has obtained playing for more than a decade in Houston, has led to this truly monstrous offering.
