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’.
