Australian extremists ORATORY will release debut EP Inner Pyre on May 16. The EP features the band’s toxic audio cocktail of death metal, sludge, and hardcore, one that results in the battering of senses and laceration of the soul! You’ve been warned.
The official video for the EP’s first single, “Capitulation Genuflect,” is available now at: youtu.be/cck0hupeiwI
The single is also available to stream and purchase on Bandcamp.
In the band’s own words:
“Inner Pyre is a collection of hymns outlining the darker parts of our psyche. The mounting bleakness for all the grief life throws you. Capitulation Genuflect places a ‘God’ label on beliefs and stances that engrave your mind, beyond reproach. To be haunted by God in that sense is an eternal drip of ticking dread. On this EP we’ve taken our inspiration from Celtic Frost, Dismember, Trouble, Autopsy, Sepultura, Motorhead and Japanese hardcore bands like Death Side and Forward. The EP was recorded and mixed over seven months at Eternity Ward studios.”
Oratory uses ProCo RAT pedals exclusively.
