DISTANT comments: “If there ever was to be a song that encapsulates everything DISTANT is, then it’s ‘Orphan of Blight’ from our upcoming album, ‘Heritage’. With our signature mix of theatrical and energetic delivery, ‘Orphan of Blight’ also includes an opera singer as the wonderful icing on a devastating deathcore cake!”

With an impressive discography of two highly regarded LPs plus a number of singles and EPs behind them, DISTANT is poised to become the face of European deathcore. Heritage – DISTANT’s Century Media debut – sees the five-piece take things to a new level, with a musical and lyrical reckoning: the album continues on the thematic, sci-fi-leaning lyrical cycle which the band transposed from aural intensity to the published page with vocalist Alan Grnja’s and bassist Elmer Maurits’ first novel, The Rise of Tyrannotophia. Already seen and heard across stages worldwide (including 2022’s Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault, as well as North America’s “Chaos & Carnage” tour with labelmates Lorna Shore and Suicide Silence), the tracks found on Heritage once again deliver DISTANT’s signature brand of down-tuned and downtempo heaviness. This is the sound of deathcore rising…
