Genre-bending death metal band PLAGUE RIDER premiere new track at Everything Is Noise

Plague Rider Cover230815

Plague Rider are turning the death metal genre inside out. In a time when innovation has lost all meaning, and mixing things around is what normally passes off as that, Plague Rider have created something that can truly be called that. Their influences are near indistinguishable and they’ve broken the traditional death metal mould here. Everything Is Noise premiered an epic, almost 10-min track from their upcoming full length HERE

“an exquisite display of malformed, experimental death metal that reaches into the most harrowing spaces of the mind”

Plague Rider – Intensities

Members of the UK band Plague Rider, having gained notoriety for their work in bands like Live Burial, Dybbuk, and Horrified, are weaving together vile, repulsive, and challenging death metal music whose original influences are now twisted and decomposed beyond recognition. Sure, you can find bits and pieces here and there, traces of hair, fingernails, broken teeth fragments, but overall their music is too far gone for any obvious comparisons. And that’s only remarkable because it adds an element of uniqueness and unpredictability in their music, a rare thrill to be derived from this style these days. They’re turning the genre inside out, heaving up and down with the innumerable variations and progressions, metamorphosing from one style and growing anew into another. Despite the seemingly volatile and acerbic nature, there’s coherency and intuitive structuring in their music, and surprisingly still, memorability which comes to the fore upon multiple listens. The intricate, ever-evolving patterns start unravelling themselves with each one, encouraging the listener to discover more remaining obscure facets in their music. Plague Rider offer their most realized expression of music on their latest full length, which is singularly wild, unrestrained, and thrilling, and something tells me that they’re not done yet.
