Metal Blade Records recently announced the signing of Atlanta, Georgia’s experimental, progressive death metal band DÅÅTH. Their new single, out today, and entitled “Purified by Vengeance”, features both Mark Holcomb of Periphery and composer and sound designer Mick Gordon and was mixed by Jens Bogren, with Andrew Wade as vocal producer, and John Douglass handling engineering duties.

Eyal Levi comments, “‘Purified By Vengeance’ is the first song we wrote for Dååth‘s return and it has everything I would want from one of our songs. Devastating riffs, eerie synths, epic orchestration, brutal and catchy vocals, ethereal cleans, and an incredible solo. And on that note, shout-out to Mick Gordon and Mark Holcomb for their contributions. When Mick told me the song made him think of grave robbing I knew he was picking up what we were putting down. He added what we didn’t know was missing. Layers of incredible percussion, sound design, orchestra, and theremin. Yes theremin. You’ve gotta love an evil theremin. Furthermore, the way Mick‘s elements blend with Jesse Zuretti‘s is perfect.

“As far as Holcomb goes, I literally laughed out loud when I first heard his solo. It’s wild and classy, virtuosic and tasteful, unpredictable yet familiar. To be honest, it’s my favorite Mark Holcomb solo. You can tell him I said that.”

“Also, the verse riff is the moment I knew Krimh had to be in the band. I was beating my head into a wall. Everything I was writing just wasn’t good enough. I re-wrote the verse maybe 16 times. We had an intro, a pre chorus, a chorus and no verse. I asked Krimh to help me write it and the way we collaborated was instant chemistry. It was so seamless and easy and what we ended up with is quintessential Dååth: heavy af, catchy af, dark af. Clearly we had to make more music together.”

“I hope you all enjoy this one!

Krimh, the band’s drummer, added how the new, original track is “a real banger with its groove, chug riffs and catchy chorus. Mick Gordon and Mark Holcomb really elevated it with their creative sound design and melodic guitar solo. I’m very proud of how this turned out!”

Jesse Zuretti (orchestration, synth, guitar) also noted how “tracking guitars & composing orchestrations was fun, but Mick Gordon‘s sound design and layers really serrated ‘Purified’. I’m personally deeply honored to have worked in tandem on this track. I’d also like to point out that when I first heard Mark Holcomb‘s solo it put a literal smile on my face – what an assassin.”

DÅÅTH previously said about their comeback: “After 12 years on hiatus, we agreed that if we’re bringing DÅÅTH back, we’re doing it right. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that we’ve signed to our dream label, Metal Blade! From day one, they understood and backed our vision for the future, have an inextinguishable passion for the genre, an incredible staff, and are one of the reasons metal is on the map and thriving. We’re excited to add to the growing metal history Slagel & Co have forged with unstoppable determination. DÅÅTH signing to Metal Blade couldn’t be a better pairing — we’re taking this to its full potential, letting nothing and nobody stand in our way. If you’re not going all out, what’s the point?”

DÅÅTH began its journey in 1999 and stayed busy for just over a decade before taking a hiatus in 2011. In that time, DÅÅTH released four studio albums (“Futility”, independently released in 2004; “The Hinderers”, released in 2007 via Roadrunner Records), “The Concealers” (released in 2009 via Century Media), “Dååth” (released in 2010 via Century Media) and toured throughout the world with bands like DARK FUNERAL, NAGLFAR, ZYKLON, DRAGONFORCE, GOATwh**e, CHIMAIRA, THROWDOWN, DYING FETUS and DEVILDRIVER, making a lasting impression with the metal community and its many sub-genres. DÅÅTH also landed a coveted spot on Ozzfest, playing before tens of thousands of fans in outdoor amphitheaters across the U.S., in addition to the infamous and long-running metal tour Summer Slaughter.

In their time, DÅÅTH managed to create an extensive fan-base worldwide with their unique brand of experimental death metal, which makes it no surprise that the metal community lit up once rumors of the band’s return began to surface online. The metal community only continued to buzz with support as members began making posts teasing new material. The metal world made it clear they were ready for the return of one of the strongest progressive death metal bands of the first part of the 2000s.
