Commenting on the EP, vocalist Kam Lee says: 

"'Mythos' is MASSACRE in its true form. Forget the imitations this is the real deal. These tracks represent the band in its proper self. Representative of true old school death metal and the music on this EP represents the core of the band's true sound. This is what the band is and was always meant to be, and now that I'm in the captain's chair I'll make sure the core of the band shall remain as such".

MASSACRE rose from the swamps of Southern Florida in the early 80's during a heatwave of groundbreaking death metal that produced some of the genre's most revered forefathers, DEATH, OBITUARY and SIX FEET UNDER. Their legacy was founded with a string of classic demos, "Aggressive Tyrant" (1986), "Chamber of Ages" (1986) and "The Second Coming" (1990), before unleashing their critically praised classic debut album "From Beyond" (1991). In 2021, the band made their long-awaited return with "Resurgence." Invigorated with the same youthful rage that brought them together at inception, long-time members, vocalist Kam Lee (MANTAS, BONE GNAWER, THE GROTESQUERY) and bassist Mike Borders, were joined in the studio by some of death's most prolific and malignant songwriters, guitarist Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, MEGASCAVENGER, RIB SPREADER), guitarist Jonny Pettersson (WOMBBATH, NATTRAVNEN, HENRY KANE), guitarist Scott Fairfax (MEMORIAM, AS THE WORLD DIES) and drummer Brynjar Helgetun (CRYPTICUS, THE GROTESQUERY) with additional guest performances by Marc Grewe (INSIDIOUS DISEASE), Dave Ingram (BENEDICTION), Anders Odden (CADAVER), and Pete Slate (DRUID LORD) The record was recorded with producer and death metal icon Dan Swanö (ex-Edge of Sanity, ex-Bloodbath) and Pettersson as engineer/mixer. 

Now only a year later, MASSACRE emerges from the swamps again for the brutally devastating EP, "Mythos." Picking up where they left off on "Resurgence," the band lays waste with Lovecraftian inspired lyrics and searing death metal riffs.
