Having signed to The Artisan Era at the end of 2019, California-based technical melodic death metallers Symbolik recently announced their upcoming debut album, Emergence. The album is set to drop on Friday, April 10th via The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to their highly-praised 2011 effort, Pathogenesis.
Now in 2020, Symbolik is eager to unleash their magnum opus of neo-classically inspired, hyper-melodic, black metal and symphonic tinged technical death metal music with Emergence. Several years in the making, Emergence is an explosive and mature effort bound to be counted among the strongest death metal releases of the year.
Emergence is strongly recommended for fans of groups such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Inferi, and Alterbeast.
The band partnered with Toilet Ov Hell today to premiere “Corridors of the Consumed”.

Toilet Ov Hell comments on the premiere of “Corridors of the Consumed”
“A cursory listen will tell you the band has joined the Inferi and Vale of Pnath school of neoclassical tech death, but listen closer and you’ll hear some fun twists on the formula. Those buttery-smooth arpeggios slide perfectly into the lilting cadence of the primary themes, working their way into actual riffs instead of the simple up-and-down you typically hear from sweep-happy guitarists. The band’s more aggressive side comes out in a furious 16th-note attack with a flawless transition out of the solo, which is a lot more measured and lyrical than one might expect from a tech death band. “Corridors” shows off the musicians’ virtuosity in a way that’s both flashy and tasteful, and it makes me that much more stoked to hear the final product.”
