Out now as of March 22nd via PRC Music, Ottawa’s ACCURSED SPAWN unleash their debut infection “The Virulent Host”, a virus of extreme metal.

The release is now available on CD plus streaming and download on the following platforms:

PRC Music Store (CD)




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.

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).
