Crushing down-tempo/deathcore act DISTANT have released the first single from their horrifyingly vicious debut full length Tyrannotophia today via Slam Worldwide. The track, which features Lucca Schmerler of label mates Mental Cruelty, is titled “Heirs of Torment” and showcases all of the album’s suffocating, earth shattering intensity. The song is accompanied by a Loki Films (Soilwork, Ingested, Osiah) directed music video.
The 11 track album, which was recorded by band guitarist Nouri Yetgin and features artwork by Pedro “Lordigan” Sena (Ingested, Organectomy, will be unleashed on June 7th.
The band commented, “Today we present you ‘Heirs of Torment, which is part of the upcoming Tyrannotopiaalbum. The album name is a metaphor for a realm ruled by brotherly tyrant kings in which the realm is the human mind and the kings are several split personas of the tyrants mind.
The song we are premiering today perfectly describes that whole (Distant) feeling. The combination of dynamic and heavy parts are laid down through this whole song and album as the lyrics describe a rivalry between brothers, fighting over the crown; the instruments display a harmoniously low tuned mixture.”

Since their formation in 2014 Rotterdam, NL based down-tempo/deathcore group DISTANT have been relentless in their pursuit of becoming one of the most extreme voices in their genre. The release of their debut EP Slither quickly launched the band into the international spotlight and saw the band hitting the road hard across Europe alongside heavyweights such as Aborted, Slaughter To Prevail, and Vulvodynia.
In early 2017 DISTANT began their next chapter with the addition of monstrous vocalist Alan Grnja and released their devastating follow up EP that summer. Full of sludgy, claustrophic intensity Tsukuyomi delivered on the promise of the group’s previous material and established DISTANT as one of the dominant voices in the European deathcore realm.
Now in 2019 the group are prepared to unleash their debut full length Tyrannotophia onto the world. Upping the brutality ten-fold from their previous releases, the gut wrenchingly vicious album accomplishes exactly what DISTANT have set out to do from the start – destroy everything in their path. The overwhelming and utterly devastating sonic violence contained within Tyrannotophia is not for the faint of heart.
