Video Premiere: Wrvth Play It as “Malaise”

This San Jose quintet (formerly Wrath of Vesuvius; we approve of the name change) is very correctly billed as technical death metal, but the  most prominent comparable I hear in WRVTH‘s hypnotic video for “Malaise” is defunct anything-goes post-metallers Burst. That’s a good thing. It’s definitely not the only thing. “Malaise” is the second track on WRVTH’s third, self-titled full-length (released in June on Unique Leader), and it maintains an excellent balance of dizzying chops and disquieting atmospherics. Check it out below.
