Dark Rites To Release New Album Called “The Dark Hymns”

Dark Rites To Release New Album Called "The Dark Hymns"

In The Dark Hymns., DARK RITES  shape their music with the highest proficiency in unrelenting-intensity phrasal-riff death metal that varies its texture and pauses inertia long enough to ram a militant and uncompromising aesthetic down the throats of their listeners.

Rippling textures of chords thrust home like a battlefield execution form the raw skin from which this band twist phrases that contort, transform and rediscover their origins as they mutate over the course of a song.  DARK RITES transforms a handful of notes into a spindly arcology of ideas that clarify in a resolving riff.

The gavel-beat of fuzz-blasted vocals pulses alongside a loping bass and rigidly sliding speeding guitar tremolo, forming a seething mass of impenetrable diatribe which alights above the head of a listener like a killing mood. While this band is most impressive on this album, and when excellent bring out the ferocity of Death metal with an unrelenting barrage of old school death metal technique, this music even at its most inflected is nearly monochromatic in its continuous rage.
