Reassembled In Pain, the critically-lauded 2019 demo EP from Colorado death/punk unit CHTHONIC DEITY, was released last October and sold out quickly.
Mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Deathgrave) and mastered by Dan Randall (Necrot, Ghoul), CHTHONIC DEITY’s Reassembled In Pain contains four songs of grisly coffin rumbling sonic mayhem “that takes old-school murky death metal and jazzes it up with doom and punk vibes and manages to take an already fetid sound and swamp it up even further (Nine Circles).”
A second pressing of the record is now available in two new color variants: black/silver merge and bone white/silver galaxy. All copies come housed in a side-loading jacket with a black and white double-sided insert as well as a download card, poster, and sticker.

CHTHONIC DEITY was spawned by Erika Osterhout and Charlie Koryn when their respective bands — Scolex and Ascended Dead — played together in November 2013. Fueled by a common passion for the soul-swallowing sounds of bands like Nihilist, Sacrilege, and Stormcrow, the duo united in January 2014 to record a crude rehearsal, writing some songs on the spot. Osterhout played the demo for her bandmate in another project, Necrosic. Soon thereafter Koryn was recruited to play drums for Necrosic and CHTHONIC DEITY was put on hold.
In 2015, Necrosic recorded their Putrid Decimation MLP with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios in Oakland. During those sessions, Osterhout and Koryn recorded drums and bass for the songs they had originally written for CHTHONIC DEITY. Due to scheduling conflicts and commitments to their many other projects, those recordings remained unfinished for several years. Finally, in April 2018 the pair recorded guitars and vocals at Koryn’s own Underworld Studios in Portland, Oregon. A few months later they convened again in Denver, Colorado where they not only finished the record but enlisted Paul Riedl from Blood Incantation and Spectral Voice for live guitar duties and played their first show.
“…the trio wade through filth on new song ‘Echoes Of Death,’ which funnels death and a bit of doom through punk and adds some of that Stockholm stink for good measure. It’s a little cavernous, but the Swedish sway adds a bit more than most that rise from the murk. The crush of Dead Congregation, Cruciamentum, or Colorado contemporaries Spectral Voice come to mind in feel.” — Decibel on “Echoes Of Death”
“…a project that takes old-school murky death metal and jazzes it up with doom and punk vibes and manages to take an already fetid sound and swamp it up even further.” — Nine Circles
“Primitive, cavernous, and insulated by a healthy mix of thrashing hardcore punk influence this first demo from CHTHONIC DEITY isn’t a deep or particularly involved set of punkish death metal songs but they’ve managed to translate their shared love for Nihilist, Autopsy, and Stormcrow into a satisfying hit of barbaric death metal style.” — Grizzly Butts
“CHTHONIC DEITY manifests the kind of filthy death metal that both metal heads and punks go ape shit for!” — Cvlt Nation
“…a succinct release that wears its influences on its sleeve and has the requisite moxie to make it all work.” — Astral Noize UK
“…these maniacs live up to the subterranean aspect of their name and deliver a dank dose of death from the darkest depths of Colorado.” — Grimmest Of All Time
“…The reek of magnificence and gloriously thundering death metal will certainly resonate through those who delve into this short but satisfying venture of depravity.” — Nattskog
