British death/thrash overlords Overthrow will haunt the metalverse ahead of Halloween with their new EP Ascension of the Entombed, available, conveniently enough, this Friday the 13th through Redefining Darkness Records.
Formed in 2011 as a gritty thrash band in the London underground scene, Overthrow has evolved into an edgy, brutal, and merciless blackened death metal attraction made up of Jay White (guitar/vocals), Scott Lindsay (drums), Grant McCallum (guitar – live) and Jamie Scougall (bass -live).
Decibel proudly debuts their new EP in full.
“The inspiration behind the new EP is our love of black and death metal bands such as Morbid Angel, Dissection, Dead Congregation, and Spectral Voice, to name but a few. We’ve been around for a dozen years now and this EP represents a stylistic and lyrical approach that ventures into more brutal, sinister, and macabre realms,” the band shared in a statement.
“I think most people will hear the evolution of our sound, certainly from the debut album which was more thrash-oriented, but still be able to recognize that it is us exploring new territories in terms of extreme metal. We feel the songwriting and execution are more refined and the production on this EP (handled by Harris Zourelidis) is definitely a step forward. This material is definitely our best work to date and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
