Within Destruction Reconnect With Deathcore Roots On Surprise Mini-Album, 'Rebirth

- By Ramon Gonzales

The unannounced supplemental release follows the 2023 arrival of the band's well-received full length, 'Lotus'.

Capping off a productive year that included the release of their effectively aggressive full length, Lotus, emerging unit Within Destruction has unloaded an unexpected six-track EP entitled, Rebirth

The presentation of new music augments the band's 2023 output while allowing the band to tap into their early work with a sound that harkens to their devastating brand of deathcore in 2016's Void and 2018's Deathwish. Thematically, the band broadened their approach, taking inspirational cues from the world of Elden Ring as each track on the EP explores a unique narrative of one of the games major characters. 

Additionally, the EP showcases a pair of collaborative powerhouses with guest appearances by David Simonich of Signs of the Swarm on the song “Fallen Omen” and Alan Grnja of Distant on the title track “Rebirth”. 

“We had free time to do sort of a pet project for ourselves with no set deadlines or goals. We were basically just having fun with this release,” shared drummer Luka Vezzosi. He continued, "there's only a handful of deathcore bands that are doing something unique at the moment and we felt like it's the perfect timing for our return to show everyone we still got it.”

Guitarist Howard Fang further detailed the writing headspace, “The main focus was on bringing back an era of the band that was raw, aggressive, and in your face. The ‘Void’ and ‘Deathwish’ eras were a significant chapter in the band’s history and we wanted to do a throwback with a new perspective and approach.” Adding, “We drew heavily from our influences and wrote the mini album with the intent of bringing the OG slamcore excitement and heaviness.”
