As California technical death metal architects, WRVTH, (formerly Wrath Of Vesuvius), prepare for the release their self-titled, third full-length this June, today Skulls ‘N’ Bones offers up the brand new video for tenth track, “Into Bloom.”
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, All Shall Perish et al.) at SharkBite/Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, California, WRVTH’s latest offering features a guest appearance from Daniel Casares of Bay Area jazz group, Atta Kid, on saxophone and boasts eleven tracks of jolting, transcendental death metal that tread a fine line between peaceful and punishing. Said Metal Injection upon investigation of their first single: “‘Harrowing Winds’ is deceiving in that in begins with a very subdued, atmospheric guitar passage before taking off into a cacophony of sonic chaos. This is not an easy balance to achieve well, but WRVTH seem to have it nailed down.
The musicianship is very impressive, and like almost all of the other Bay Area-based tech death bands, the album was produced by Zack Ohren, which means it sounds awesome too.” No Clean Singing agrees, “The music builds in volume, weight, and intensity – eventually accelerating into a brain-twisting frenzy of tech-death dissonance, full of exuberant guitar and bass machinations. But as freaked-out as the instrumental work is (and as unpredictable as the vocal array of shrieks, growls, and roars becomes), the band also hits some jack-hammering grooves and infiltrates the track with off-world melodies, along with delivering a beautiful guitar solo. And that opening dual guitar harmony returns, along with a badass bass solo. Together, they act as a bridge to a final mind-expanding display of progressively inclined pyrotechnics.”
Comments the band of “Into Bloom,” “This songs very personal. It talks about finding who and where you want to be through chasing your dreams.”
Check out “Into Bloom,” now playing at Skulls ‘N’ Bones who calls the tune “unpredictable, raw, and unrelenting,” at THIS LOCATION.
