AS THE WORLD DIES_cover211223

Formed by Memoriam guitarist Scott Fairfax, UK death metal band As The World Dies are playing old school death metal with an ominous, futuristic touch. It’s a refreshing change from the out-and-out Bolt Thrower worship bands out there. Decibel Magazine recently premiered one of the tracks from their debut full length HERE

“a foreboding but invigorating death metal journey that rains plague and locusts down on listeners. The song is a succession of new chapters that unveil the band’s approach to atmospheric heaviness”

Formed by members of Memoriam and PemphigoidAs The World Dies are among UK’s most promising new bands. Gritty and spiteful, the music rampages mercilessly hearkening back to the era of Bolt ThrowerGrave and the like, even though As The World Dies have their own approach to it all. The music is even atmospheric at times, littered with unpredictable tempo changes, and it’s clear that they have their own method to the madness. Skulls get crushed either way, as they rally support from the genre’s greats – Karl Willets (Bolt Thrower), David Ingram (Benediction/Hellfrost And Fire), Kam Lee (Massacre) and many more. It’s a formidable lineup and victory is certain. Death triumphs over all. As The World Dies make sure of it. ‘Agonist’ is as powerful a debut as can be expected and fans of classic-sounding, UK-styled death metal will find a new favourite in this one.
