Pulverizing Victoriaville, QC based deathcore act OBLITERATE have announced that they will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, and Unique Leader debut, Impending Death on May 18th. The 8 track effort was recorded, mixed, and mastered by producer Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, Ingested) at The Grid Studios in Montreal, QC, features artwork by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design, and showcases the bands most devastating material to date. Upon first listen it is immediately apparent that OBLITERATE will soon find themselves dominating Canadian metal scene.
Drummer Pat Woods commented on the album saying, “It just came naturally. We knew we had to double up our efforts on this album and that’s exactly what we did. With the help of Chris Donaldson we are about to release our best record to date. Impending Death is a reflection of what we think and how we feel as human beings in this world. Under these true words there’s also a melody that to us, supports and identifies perfectly with the band. We are now affiliated with Extreme Management Group and just signed a record deal with Unique Leader Records, which allows us to be more ready and stronger than ever before. Seeing what was getting prepared, Artery Global quickly offered us to hop on their roster and have already confirmed awesome stuff for us in 2018. Keep your ears and eyes open, we are coming.”
Pre-orders, new music, and tour dates to be announced in the weeks to come.

Formed in 2010, OBLITERATE have emerged from Quebec, Canada as a crushing component of the modern death metal and deathcore mechanism. The band wasted no time and in 2012, OBLITERATE released their debut album The Filth of Humanity, which showed the massive potential of the band and lead to consistent touring across the US and Canada. The band followed this up with an EP which continued to cement the group as one of the leaders of Canadian deathcore.
In mid 2016, OBLITERATE entered the studio with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Ingested) and began working on their new album Impending Death. The album, which features guest vocals from members of I Declare War and Oceano, showcases the band’s best material to date and led to a a deal with Unique Leader Records. The band commented on the signing, ‘Signing with Unique Leader is really the next big step for Obliterate. We’ve been hard working on this record for a while and, with this partnership, we think it’s the perfect time for us to treat our fans. This album demonstrates a much more mature and atmospheric sound which takes our music to a whole new level. We also got two of the industry’s beefiest vocalists to appear on separate songs. Old-timer deathcore fans surely won’t be disappointed’.
