Celebrated death metal blue chips Alluvial have confirmed a new EP will land at the top of the new year. Death is But A Door debuts January 12th via Nuclear Blast Records and and serves as a creative conduit between the band's hailed 2021 full length, Sarcoma and their next LP.
"We wrote about 13 or 14 songs this summer, but we wanted to do this EP between Sarcoma and our next full-length. These songs align with the vibe we want to go for. We will always find a way to be darker from record to record in the same way that South of Heaven was heavier than Reign In Blood and Seasons In The Abyss was heavier than South Of Heaven," says guitarist/vocalist Wes.Hauch.
"It was that concept of chasing the dragon to find a way to top the message and vibe on the last record while finding a way to do it that made us excited."
Indicative of that heft, Alluvial have shared a searing first slab from the EP with the single, "Bog Dweller". Showcasing breakneck speed, expert-level intricacy and youthful intensity, the track makes good on the notion that everything Alluvial is turned up on this next EP.
Tapping James Wigtman to helm the accompanying visual, the blood red backdrop of a performance video offers a glimpse of the Alluvial's live onslaught - matching the devastation of their soundtrack.
The single and EP announcement lands as the band set to begin an extensive U.S. touring stretch as support for prog-metal renegades, Tesseract, on the War of being Tour. The run kicks off October 5th and concludes with a November 13th stop in Nashville, TN. A complete list of dates and cities can be found below. Get tickets - HERE
