Decibel Magazine has just premiered the new video for “Left In Despair” – the savage title track to the second album by Boston death metal henchmen, VAULTED – as the record nears November release.
Born from bitter Winters, VAULTED siphons aggression and internal growth through searing and metallic, sometimes melodic, unapologetic auditory chaos, and pinpointed lyrical constructs that reflect on personal despair, social atrocity, and global vitriol. The group maintains a bludgeoning heaviness with a poetic weaponry of ferocity and internal strife.
VAULTED now prepares to close out the tumultuous 2021 with their latest and most advanced effort to date titled, Left In Despair. The band returned to their trusted producer, engineer, and manager Shane Frisby of LifeBlood Inc. and owner/operator of The BrickHitHouse to capture Left In Despair’s eleven groove-heavy tracks, the album blending influences from seminal death metal monarchs Dismember, Entombed, Grave, Obituary, and Gorefest with the modern approach of Black Breath, Nails, Trap Them, Gatecreeper, and All Pigs Must Die. The record was mastered by Alan Douches at West Westside Studios (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Cannibal Corpse), and completed with artwork by Yodth Gnosis.
The video for “Left In Despair” was directed by Tyler Hallett. VAULTED’s Christian Henderson offers, “We wrote and recorded Left In Despair in January 2020, just before the pandemic. Little did we know, we spoke this song and the new album’s subject matter into existence with what transpired only a month or so later. Now in 2021, feelings of isolation, desertion, and uncontrollable abandonment run rampant and still no one can truly understand where we stand in the timeline of human existence.”
Decibel writes, “Team Decibel has been happily hyping New England metallic hardcore bruisers VAULTED for the past two years now. The band burst onto the scene in 2019 with Asylum Memoirs, a three-track ripper of an EP that will barely prepare you for the sonic onslaught of Left In Despair, the band’s second effort, now confirmed for November release. And this afternoon we’re happy to re-board the Northeast Regional hype train via the premiere of the video for Left In Despair‘s title track.”

VAULTED will independently release Left In Despair digitally with a cassette version to see release through bassist Nicholas Wolf’s War Fever Recordings on November 19th.
