2016 ushers in a new dawn for UK metal trio DYSCARNATE. After a period of silence spent writing and dealing with personnel shifts due to the loss of longtime member Henry Bates, the group is set to return with a third album, a fresh sound, and a new vocalist/bassist in Arceye’s Al Llewellyn.
“We’re stoked to be working on the new record with Unique Leader,” says drummer Matt Unsworth. “Our style has continued to evolve from album to album and we feel Unique Leader is the perfect home for our new material. We can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’ve put together for album three. It’s got all the grooves and blasts our fans would expect but the whole thing is drenched in a fucking dark atmosphere. There’s genuine progression from the last record to this one. There is no doubt in my mind that it will surprise more than a few people.”
DYSCARNATE has long been flying the flag for UK death metal all over the world. Having toured across Australia, Europe, Indonesia, Israel, Russia and more, fans can expect to see the three-piece powerhouse’s dominance to spread even further in the coming year.
Following the release of the debut EP Annihilate To Liberate in 2008, DYSCARNATE were met with overwhelming feedback from national magazines, record labels, and fans alike which consequently led to a multi-album deal with the UK’s Siege Of Amida Records. The band’s debut full-length Enduring The Massacre earned the tag of “best new death metal band in the UK, without question,” by Terrorizer Magazine.
DYSCARNATE toured the album extensively and internationally with such high profile names as The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon, Cephalic Carnage, and Psycroptic, then swiftly followed up the success of their debut. Cited as “one of the best death metal albums to come out of the UK in the last twenty years” by Metal Hammer’s Dom Lawson, DYSCARNATE’s devastating second record, 2012’s And So It Came To Pass, was met with an unprecedented reaction from critics and fans globally with Metal Hammer crowning the band, “the new kings of UK death,” and Terrorizer calling the album “the freshest breath of air.”
Keen to capitalize on their success in the press, DYSCARNATE set out on a blitzkrieg touring schedule, which saw them fly the flag for British extreme music across Australia, Israel, Indonesia, Russia, and Europe, sharing stages with such names as Cannibal Corpse, Carcass, Fear Factory, Gojira and Decapitated among countless others.
DYSCARNATE’s as-yet-untitled third full-length will be released in 2017 with official details to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Three men, one purpose, one sound. Always outnumbered, never outgunned.
