Press release:
“Here’s a vertiable ‘supergroup’ that honestly sounds like a lost BENEDICTION album. With members of bands like BOLT THROWER, HAIL OF BULLETS, BENEDICTION, PAGANIZER, DOWN AMONG DEAD MEN, AKATHARTA, etc., this is serious stuff. It’s well-written death metal that’s powerful, nostalgic and memorable. Released at the end of last year, it may have been overlooked by some, but it’s never late for some timeless old school death metal. METAL INJECTION premiered their official lyric video  HERE.

Album lineup –
Dave Ingram (HAIL OF BULLETS, ex-BOLT THROWER, ex-BENEDICTION) – Vocals
Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, DEMIURG, PUTREVORE, MEGASCAVENGER) – Guitar

New death metal supergroup ECHELON carry on where another supergroup STENCH PRICE left, employing the services of Dave Ingram (HAIL OF BULLETS, ex-BOLT THROWER, ex-BENEDICTION), Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, DEMIURG, PUTREVORE), Johan Berglund (RIBSPREADER, THE GROTESQUERY), Kjetil Lynghaug (JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, PAGANIZER) and Travis Ruvo (AKATHARTA, CROPSY MANIAC). Expect death metal that is stupendous, old school and fleshed out, emphasizing on crushing British brutality coupled with classic Swedish melodic sensibilities and riffing power. Care has been taken to ensure that the nostalgic value remains foremost, as the music traverses through many winding yet memorable songs, with impeccable compositions by the riff-master Rogga and probably one of Dave Ingram’s finest vocal performances of his career. This is a varied, bombastic album that will go down as one of the strongest albums of this era.

1. Plague of the Altruistic
2. The Forbidden Industry
3. Lex Talionis
4. Of Warlocks and Wolves
5. The Brimstone Aggrandizement
