Doing the storied Montreal death metal scene proud, Canadian bruisers INTONATE have signed to Willowtip Records for the release of sophomore album Severed Within on April 16. Invisible Oranges recently premiered the first single, “Yearn.”
“Yearn” (Track Premiere)
Severed Within will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. Pre-orders are open now.
The album follows the 2016 independent debut The Swerve, itself a penetrating technical death metal experience, complete with progressive flourishes. Severed Within builds upon that foundation, but adds new dimensions and tendencies. The album contains five compositionally magnificent tracks that produce a 40-minute death metal firestorm sure to land on many 2021 year-end lists.
Following the 2016 debut, The Swerve, the new album presents the band’s personal catharsis and reflections on life’s dual offerings constantly struggled with. Musically, the band delivers a more uncompromisingly aggressive and honest sound, while keeping true to its roots.
