CORDYCEPS began in 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada and in 2016 the band tracked their debut EP Black Blood Butchery which was released on New Standard Elite Records. The release was featured by Trevor Strnad (Black Dahlia Murder) in his monthly Obituarist column with Metal Injection and from there, interest in the band, and touring opportunities picked up steam.
The band supported the EP in 2017 with a busy tour schedule which saw them performing at Chicago Domination Fest, Los Angeles Extinction Fest, Violent and Defiant Fest, and on tour with Cerebral Incubation that fall. In early 2018, CORDYCEPS caught the interest of Unique Leader Records, and are currently in the writing process for their first full-length ready to release in 2019.
