ILSA’s New Album CORPS FORTRESS To See Release Via Relapse Records This March, Opening Track HIKIKOMORI Now Streaming

5:22 PM



Horror-obsessed, underground cult ILSA weaves together tales of depravity and devil worship on their Relapse debut “Corpse Fortress.” 

Recorded by Kevin Bernsten (Full Of Hell, Code Orange, Magrudergrind, Integrity) in Baltimore, Maryland at Developing Nations, Corpse Fortress delivers nine tracks forged in filth with dense layers of emotionally draining sludge, murky, primordial doom and feedback-laden, crusty death metal. 

“Corpse Fortress” is easily the rawest, most abhorrent, and nasty album in ILSA’s decade-long career and the perfect soundtrack for the initiated miscreants of this rapidly dying orb.

“Corpse Fortress will see release March 2 on CD, LP, deluxe LP and digital formats via Relapse Records. 

Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads via all retail outlets HERE.


Corpse Fortress Track Listing:
  1. Hikikomori
  2. Nasty, Brutish
  3. Cosmos Antinomos
  4. Prosector
  5. Old Maid
  6. Long Lost Friend
  7. Ruckenfigur
  8. Polly Vaughn
  9. Drums Of Dark Gods

Formed in 2008, Washington, D.C.-based sextet ILSA has wasted no time in spreading its unique brand of cloying, compelling, death/doom throughout the underground and beyond. 

Ever since the release of their debut full-length The Maggots Are Hungry (Odium Generis Humani), ILSA has lived and breathed a raw musical lifestyle, producing nearly one effort every year, including three additional full-length LPs and three splits with like-minded extreme metal comrades Coffins, Seven Sisters Of Sleep, and Hooded Menace. 

Each release features the detailed black and white artwork of drummer Joshy Brettell, who also drums in the legendary hardcore act Integrity. 

The band has shown just as much ambition on the live circuit as well, performing at numerous festivals including Maryland Deathfest and various shows with Windhand, Noothgrush, Full Of Hell, Magrudergrind and many others. 

After the May 2015 release of the band’s fourth album, The Felon’s Claw (A389 Recordings), ILSA signed to Relapse Records for their impending fifth album, Corpse Fortress. No Gods; No Masters.
