UK death metal titans LIVE BURIAL premiere face-melting track via Metal Bite

LIVE BURIAL_cover220713

While many bands are playing death metal that is rooted in the old school sound, Live Burial have elaborated upon it, adding various elements from genres such as thrash metal and doom metal, making it all the more intricate, challenging and engrossing. It’s not the same predictable death metal that you’d expect, even though sonically it resembles many of your classic favourites such as Morgoth, Asphyx, Unleashed, Atrocity, etc. Metal Bite premiered a scathing new track that can be found AT THIS LINK

Two years after the release of their highly acclaimed full length ‘Unending Futility’, UK’s strongest purveyors of classic death metal Live Burial return with a new full length which is a staggering improvement over it in all conceivable ways. As if new techniques have been unlocked, the songwriting on this record is far more intricate and multi-faceted, with the band not only relying on their trademark lurching doomy death metal crawl but also expanding upon the scope by adding new textures and influences, including those sounding Finnish in origin. Despite these enhancements in sound, the music has only become faster, more aggressive and scathing, with vocals being acerbic enough to melt flesh but also somehow carry emotion, which in turn are magnified by excellent lead-playing. This is the culmination of the purest form of death metal worked upon to make it relevant, nay, cutting-edge in terms of extremity, technical proficiency and even emotive capability where this old school style of music goes.
