CRAWLING THROUGH TARTARUS Signs Worldwide Deal With Extreme Management Group

Extreme Management Group (EMG), home to bands like Suffocation, Atheist, Misery Index, and more, has announced their partnership with California death metal band CRAWLING THROUGH TARTARUS.

Tartarus (Ancient Greek: Τάρταρος, Tártaros) The deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and was the prison for the Titans. The Bands message tells us of Greek mythology and the dark and brutal stories of the gods. The group’s heavy and dynamic sound along with their resonating live performances helped the band quickly rise to prominence.

Crawling Through Tartarus roared to life in 2019 and shortly after that the group released their first song “Ballad of the Fallen', and their follow-up single “Hell’s Kitchen”. This was the first from a fresh new face in the metal scene. Crawling Through Tartarus is a death metal band from the heart of southern California that packs a mean punch. The band follows a Greek mythology theme within their music, packed with heavy hitting riffs, brutal breakdowns, and earth shaking percussion that hits in all the right spots. Crawling Through Tartarus is one of those bands that will catch your attention from the get-go and will pull you in further with each listen. In 2020, they took to the road making appearances at multiple venues across the Southern California scene.

Crawling Through Tartarus has quickly gained a favorable reputation for their high energy live performances, brutal and invigorating studio recordings, and good branding.The heavy hitting group’s latest single “Medusa’s Gaze' helped catapult the group into 2022 by being the first track off their EP titled “Libations” in 2022. The EP serves its purpose by showcasing how, with each release, that this band is on the right path. Crawling Through Tartarus is a very talented death metal band that evolves very rapidly with each release, tightening their dynamic as a band and proves that this band is a powerhouse that is rising from California.

In line with their name, having dragged themselves up from the underworld of recovering from a shooting that occurred during a live set, injuring vocalist Matt, Crawling Through Tartarus have paid more than a penny to the ferryman to cross back over the River Styx to the land of the living, and return with their debut self-titled full-length album in February of 2024, two years after the Libations EP launched them . It is fair to say, their sound is as fiery as the Hades their moniker refers to, and is chock full of relentless heaviness with nary a let up. Straddling the line between contemporary Death Metal and Deathcore, the quintet certainly know what they’re doing.

“The Beast Within”, placed midway through the thirty-minute pummelling, flies out the traps, powered by drummer Joseph, then hits a slab-heavy groove, before the latter-part jags into some early-Gojira rhythmic juddering and once again picking the ante back up and the pummelling commences again. “The Fall Of Atlas” has a melancholic sepia tone to its staccato punch, and “Into The Depths” sees Matt slither where the slime lives, as CTT hit some slippery Strapping Young Lad grooves.

Now the band has signed with Extreme Management Group, and had the following to say about the partnering, "There were a few different organizations that we were looking into working with and out of all of the options we had, Extreme Management Group really ultimately was the best choice for us. They fit all of the needs our band has and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with their team. We look forward to this journey we’re all going to take together and are ecstatic that Extreme is working closely with us to spread our music and our energy to everyone we can." EMG said, "Crawling Through Tartarus is a killer death metal act from the west coast. We anticipate big things to come from our partnership with the band."
