Portuguese prog-death metallers Destroyers Of All will release their first full-length Bleak Fragments on March 18th, through the newly founded Mosher Records. Recorded at Golden Jack Studios Coimbra, the follow up to critically acclaimed EP Into the Fire (2013) features ten songs packed with mad riffs, virtuoso lead work, intricate dynamics that will catch you off-guard and a dark vocal delivery that ties together this complex gem. The band reached out to indonesian artist Silencer8 (As I Lay Dying, Kylesa, Caliban, Suicide Silence) for the album cover and the result is an impressive piece of art, as intricate as the music itself.
CD in Jewel case with 8 page booklet with all the lyrics included!
When a band promises to deliver a blend of progressive death metal while setting foot on thrash, groove and black metal, it’s only natural for a fan to feel suspicious. Enter Destroyers of All’s “Bleak Fragments”, an album that even raises the bar a notch, even setting feet on thin ice like jazzy, atmospheric and other mood swing moments. Before you listen to the album, you’re wondering “do they pull it off?”, but after a few spins of “Bleak Fragments”, you might as well be asking “how do they pull this off?”.
What really sets Destroyers of All’s work apart is how they craft actual songs amidst all the tempo changes, the complexity of the guitar riffs, the bitterness imprinted on the vocal delivery and the intricate bass phrasings. It’s their secret weapon, and a well honed one. Give this record a fair shot, and you’ll be humming to parts of it in no time.
Includes digital pre-order of Bleak Fragments. You get 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.
