Atomic Zombie Records proudly presents the debut EP from Wretched Spawn, the new side project from Derek Neibarger, the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist for Godless Angel! Wretched Spawn is an old school death metal band, focusing on speed and aggression!
Derek has this to say about the creation of Wretched Spawn:
“Wretched Spawn is basically what I intended Godless Angel to be when I created it back in 2012, but at the time I was still learning how to get those killer death metal riffs to translate from my head to my hands. As my writing and playing progressed and evolved, Godless Angel took several left turns and morphed into something completely different than what I had originally envisioned. It became a progressive death metal beast all it’s own, incorporating several different styles of metal.
With Wretched Spawn I’ve returned to that original vision; an old school death metal band focused on speed and aggression. It’s so exciting to be able to hear these songs turn out exactly like what I heard in my head so many years ago, but which was only possible now after nearly six years of honing my craft. I wanted a handful of songs that snarled and lunged out of your speakers with relentless heaviness, and that’s exactly what the Wretched Spawn debut EP delivers. I’m proud as hell of these four tracks!”

The new Godless Angel album, “They Lurk”, received great praise in a feature on MetalSucks!
“They Lurk is Godless Angel’s fifth album, and it’s absolutely his most developed one yet. Neibarger has brewed up a sonic stew of influences from classic death metal — a lot of classic DM — and beyond, with the groove of Morbid Angel, the brutality of Nile, the sophistication of Death and the evil vibes of Slayer all showing their ugly heads. It’ll make a damn fine soundtrack to your work day on this gloomy winter morning.”

Atomic Zombie Records presents “They Lurk”, the fifth release from the Lawrence, Kansas based one man death metal machine, Godless Angel. Formed in 2012 by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Derek Neibarger, Godless Angel has evolved from an old school death metal throwback to a progressive death metal beast, incorporating death, groove, thrash, doom, and horror inspired lyrcs.
In 1973, Osage County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a domestic disturbance call on a family farm outside of Overbrook, Kansas. They discovered the bodies of Marie Swafford and her son, Jay. Husband and father, Walter Swafford, was nowhere to be found, leaving three year old June as the lone survivor.
“They Lurk” explores the local mythology behind these grisly murders over four chapters of blistering, progressive death metal.
