Cancerous Womb

Cancerous Womb are a Death Metal / Grind quartet from Edinburgh, that deliver a mixture of Modern Death Metal, Old-School Grind & Thrash with a slime of Progressive-Technical influence. With catchy and creative passages, coupled with an unconventional approach to song structures & an intensely honed live sound, Cancerous Womb captivate audiences with a refreshingly lethal yet highly accessible styling of original Extreme Death Metal.

Bio: Cancerous Womb was the brainchild of guitarist Mike, originally conceived as an online instrumental project in 2005, which never actually materialised. Between '06 & '07, Mike & close friend Chris Lewis (vocals) recorded a number of rough tracks which included ideas and titles that would later evolve into the first full tracks written and performed as a band. After releasing these initial fledgling recordings online it was then decided that things should be taken more seriously. Cancerous Womb was officially born during the latter stages of 2008 when Mike and Chris recruited Paul Cook on drums to facilitate the new live direction. Since then we've been writing and 'perfecting' our current setlist whilst gigging/touring modestly. The final addition was adding Joe Mortimer on Bass in Autumn 2011.

We aim to achieve more and more momentum as time goes on. The bestial sound of CW is shaping nicely and so grows our passion in performing and writing.

So far we've been allowed to support and share the stage with a huge array of fantastic bands, complete a half dozen full UK tours, as well as tour across Ireland, Finland & Denmark. We released our debut 3 track 'Austrian Basement' EP in December 2009, which is available to download for free at our Bandcamp page in its entirety:

In February 2011 we recorded 2 tracks which are available as part of 'Split Roast'; A 5-Way UK Extreme Metal Split with 4 other excellent bands - Released on 23rd May 2011 on Condate Records.
'Split Roast' is available to order at our Big Cartel Shop:
