Progressive Metal outfit Dethrone The Sovereign releases a sneak peak at their upcoming ‘Harbingers of Pestilence’ LP.
‘Harbingers of Pestilence’, slated for release July 28th, is the result of years of hard work writing and recording in the studio with help from producer Stetson “Bucket” Whitworth. The teaser glosses over the album’s nine tracks, highlighting some of the band’s varied musical influences from metal to jazz, and classical to electronic, to name a few.
Fans of Between The Buried And Me, Born of Osiris, Fallujah, and The Faceless will find plenty to love in Harbingers of Pestilence. From the technical onslaught of tight chugs and haunting orchestral lines to the impressive classical-influenced shredding, Dethrone the Sovereign manages to put together a sound that’s catchy, intriguing, and very much their own.
The band briefly elaborated on the upcoming release: “We are extremely pleased to present this preview for our upcoming album, ‘Harbingers of Pestilence’. We tried to cover all the ground we could musically while at the same time maintaining a sense of cohesiveness for the album as a whole, which we hope will show here”.
More about the band:
Dethrone the Sovereign is a 5-piece progressive metal band from Salt Lake City, UT (USA). Originally formed in 2008, the band has gone through several member changes over the years. After locking in a solid drummer in 2010 and a monster vocalist in 2015, the band finally feels complete and ready to take on the world. Dethrone the Sovereign has released two 6-song albums which were met with great reviews, a self-titled EP in 2009 with the follow up EP “Autocracy Dismantled” in 2013.
Their debut full length album titled “Harbingers of Pestilence” will be released later this year via Famined Records (Victory). The band has been honored to share the stage with huge names including Unearth, After the Burial, Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Born of Osiris, The Contortionist, The Faceless, and The Black Dahlia Murder who inspired the band’s name (“Thy Horror Cosmic” lyrics). They’ve opened for several big tours in their hometown including Summer Slaughter, Thrash and Burn, Atticus Metal Tour and completed a handful of their own successful tours across the western U.S. Blending classical and modern influences, balancing progressive technicality with brutal force and melody, Dethrone the Sovereign seeks to distinguish itself as a unique presence among the metal community.
