News : Western Australia’s Depravity announce new album details

By on February 10, 2018

Western Australia’s death metal hoard Depravity has just opened pre-order’s for their debut LP ‘Evil Upheaval’. The highly anticipated release is set for an April release through Transcending Obscurity Records. The band and label are offering an impressive range of formats for the release, including a Limited Edition Autographed Gold-embossed Box Set which really showcases the artwork by Alex Tartsus (De Profundis, Sinister).

To coincide with the pre-order/release announcement fans get a taste of the album via the track Despondency.  The single is typically brutal and pummelling, showcasing all of the elements that are quickly becoming hallmarks of the Depravity sound – jaw dropping technicality, a sinister atmosphere and a penchant for the sort of timeless songwriting which will appeal equally to fans of traditional and modern death metal styles.  The album was mixed and mastered at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader), and judging from the first single the album is shaping to be every bit as polished and precise as a major label death metal release.

2016’s three-track EP ‘Reign of the Depraved’ was an entrée to the band, establishing the bands sound and drawing comparisons to the focused aggression and unrelenting chaos of seminal bands like Morbid Angel and Immolation. With Reign of the Depraved containing only 3 tracks, there is no doubt that Depravity fans have been left hungry for the main course. The wait is almost over. Evil Upheaval will be unleashed on April 30, 2018, and it looks set to satisfy the death metal appetite of even the most discerning fans.
