"Death Motivation" is the title of THE MURDER INDUSTRY's debut full length and includes 8 songs with an awesome production made by the talented spanish producer Eric Monsonis who already did a splendid job on AGGRESSION's debut. "Death Motivation" has one of the best productions ever to be heard on a spanish band, it's simply astonishing!! So fucking heavy, tight and brutal!!! This, combined with the band's crushing brand of brutal Death rooted in the old tradition of bands like SUFFOCATION, KILLING ADDICTION, DYING FETUS, CANNIBAL CORPSE, NILE and a truly bzarre vocalist, makes of this debut album one of the hilights for the year 2010 within the spanish scene.
