The dead walk again! New York-based UNDEATH have returned from their mutilated tomb to horrify and dominate death metal’s insatiable masses once again. Their blessedly sick new album, It’s Time... To Rise from the Grave, shows the reconfigured quintet—KyleBeam (guitars), Alexander Jones (vocals), Tommy Wall (bass), Jared Welch (guitars) and Matt Browning (drums)—have retained their mind-infecting sonic savagery but weren’t satisfied in their pursuit to improve it through wicked (yet studied) reformulation.
Certainly, UNDEATH’s 2021 Decibel flexi, Diemented Dissection, paved the way, but it’s tracks like “Fiend for Corpses,” “Rise from the Grave,” and “The Funeral Within” that display Undeath’s terrifyingly insane trajectory. It’s Time... To Rise from the Graveisn’t just an early contender for death metal album of 2022—it’s destined to be a modern-day classic.
Industrial soundscapes and ethereal vocals contrasting with HM-2 aggression creates an uncommon invention of metal. HERIOT’s character rests on a razor blade, chaotically flickering between devastation and ease.
Having caught the attention of Kerrang!,Rock Sound, Revolver, Knotfest and Radio 1’s Daniel P Carter, the band recently signed to Church Road Records. With debut EP 'Profound Morality' scheduled for release on April 29th 2022, HERIOT’s exploration of desolation will continue.
