INGESTED Release Music Video For Brutalizing New Single “Pantheon”

UK death metallers Ingested have dropped their latest single, “Pantheon,” upon the masses. The brutalizing new hymn and music video comes by way of their upcoming full-length studio album, “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”, arriving on April 5th via Metal Blade Records.

“Pantheon” is a scorching conglomeration of alternating tempos, abrupt rhythm shifts, and devastating guitar grind between staccato midsections.

Some of the conflicts for Ingested were rooted in depression and insecurity, a condition that fueled the themes behind “Pantheon.” Right at a time when the band was playing huge shows to devoted crowds and hanging with bands they’ve admired for years (including Dying Fetus and Suffocation), and newer groups shaking the scene, (such as Lorna Shore and Sylosis), vocalist Jason Evans was struggling with an identity crisis.

“I wrote ‘Pantheon’ when I was suffering from a heavy bout of imposter syndrome. We’ve done all these big tours with all these huge bands, bands we grew up idolizing, and now we’re rubbing shoulders with giants so to speak. It’s about questioning if you belong, if you’re good enough, am I able to keep up with my peers? Can I fill the shoes of my idols once they are gone? Do I deserve it?” Evans shared.

Not many top-tier death metal bands can record and release an album a year and follow it with an extensive tour. That’s hardly ever been the case for Manchester, England’s crushing, visceral Ingested. Since the release of their fifth album, 2020’s “Where Only God May Tread“, the band has been on a creative tear that has produced almost a full record every year – even through the COVID-19 pandemic – but has resulted in the kind of musical growth that only comes from constantly practicing, playing, and writing.

The band’s latest output, “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”, is not only as innovative and brutal as their last disc — the bleak, firestorm “Ashes Lie Still” — it showcases a band willing to expand its creativity without sacrificing the ferocity that made it one of the most impressively destructive, technical death metal bands on the scene. “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams” is proof that once Ingested sniffs out a trail of musical blood, they ravenously follow it until they’ve uncovered a festering feast.

Produced by the band with the guidance of recording engineer Nico Beninato, the record includes a guest appearance by Chimaira’s Mark Hunter who provides guest vocals for the track “In Nothingness” and Sylosis singer Josh Middleton who contributes to “Expect To Fail,” as well as the striking cover art of David Seidman

Whether pummeling listeners with double-bass rolls, blast-beats, and grinding rhythm; breaking it all down with jagged, staggered riffs, and piercing harmonics; or flooding the mix with rapid-fire bursts of minor key melodies, Ingested has injected all of their experience, skill, and artistry into the ten trenchant new songs on “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”. Where the new album differs from its predecessor isn’t in its brutality or melodicism, it’s in the songwriting and the way the tunes flow together in a way that’s vicious, but not morose.

Ashes… was constructed in the COVID period, and the mood of that album definitely reflects that time,” the band notes, The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams, we wanted to bring the energy up a bit. As much as we like what we did with Ashes…, its depressive tone isn’t something we wanted to continue to explore quite as much. There are definitely some dark moments on …Tide…, but for the most part, we took a more upbeat approach to the songs this time round.”
