CELL: Oklahoma City Band Delivers Metallic Pummeling on “Mirrors of My Damnation”

With a menacing sound that blends metallic hardcore, death metal, and beatdown, CELL is not a band you put on when you want to relax by the pool.

Based in Oklahoma City, the quintet was founded in 2021 by musicians from Omen and Mouth for War, releasing the Sadistic Sounds of Suffering EP later that same year. Following some membership changes, CELL moved forward and dropped a split release with Florida hardcore band Pieced Up in 2022.

2023 saw Unbeaten Records welcoming CELL into their fold, making them label mates with Wisdom & War, Edict, and Purgatory. For their debut offering on the label earlier this year, CELL unleashed a 6-tracker called The Unbearable Form, a brutal sonic statement produced by Connor Haines (Mugshot, No Cure).

For their latest drop, CELL teamed up with Haines again to record "Mirrors of My Damnation," a truly vicious serving of harsh vocals, pummeling double bass, and chugging guitars.

Check out the Toddi Babu-directed video for the song, which looks it could be the setting for an '80s slasher flick:

The new song comes out at a perfect time since CELL is gearing up to hit the road on a US tour with metalcore heroes Zao along with grinders No/Mas. The band is hot off the heels of tour with Spite and Bodysnatcher they just wrapped up.

The Zao trek launches on July 27th in Raleigh, North Carolina and runs till August 9th in Covington, Kentucky:

"Mirrors of My Damnation" is available now across all digital music outlets via Unbeaten Records.
