Undeath unleash surprise live album, ‘Live… From the Grave’

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on November 10, 2022

The release follows in the tradition of ‘Live Cannibalism’ and ‘Unleashed in the East’ and lands as the band prepares to embark on their US co-headliner with 200 Stab Wounds.

The momentum continues to mount for New York’s new school death metal traditionalists. As Undeath prepare to depart on their US co-headlining tour with 200 Stab Wounds, the band has not only graced the most recent cover of Decibel Magazine but they have earned top honors of “Album of the Year” from the revered publication for their masterclass in brutality in It’s Time… To Rise from the Grave.

Reiterating the raw power and eviscerating energy of the record, the band have hit fans with an unexpected onslaught, unloading a brilliant live version of the album with Live…From The Grave. Recorded during their spring trek at Pop’s in Sauget, IL on May 27th, 2022, the band recruited venerated producer Arthur Rizk to master the audio and enlisted Mark Rudolph to helm the album’s ghoulishly golden artwork.

Undeath vocalist Alexander Jones was eager to express his excitement of the release and explained how the project was a tip of the hat to the greats of the genre.

“Stoked as fuck to announce our first ever live album, ‘LIVE…FROM THE GRAVE’! We’ve been huge fans of killer live albums like ‘Live Cannibalism‘ and ‘Unleashed in the East‘ forever and considering the fact that we’ve been touring consistently for the past year and a half, we figured there’s no time like the present to drop one of our own! The album is taken from our tour supporting Dying Fetus this past spring and highlights a bunch of tracks off of ‘It’s Time…to Rise From the Grave’. If you can’t catch us live, this is the next best option for you. It’s like we’re right there stinking up your car/living room/cousin’s wedding/wherever you choose to throw this bad boy on…”

Jones also added how humbled the band was to earn the nod for album of the year from Decibel Magazine. “We’re also beyond honored to not only be on the cover of the year-end issue of Decibel, but to also have ‘It’s Time…To Rise from the Grave’ take the number one spot on their Top 40 Albums of the Year list! Insanity. We’ve been fans of Decibel for years and, as sappy as it sounds, we used to daydream about stuff like this happening at our very first practices. It honestly still doesn’t feel real, but this shit is as real as it gets! Seriously can’t begin to thank Decibel and everyone who’s supported us this year enough. Shoutout to FUCKING DEATH METAL.”

Undeathjguitarist Kyle Beam added, “We were having a blast playing these songs on this tour, and we hope you enjoy listening to them! As a kid, I was introduced to a lot of bands via the cover of Decibel, and now here we are, featured as the cover story. If you’re discovering us from this, we hope you stick around – we’re just getting started…”

In addition to the release of Live… From The Grave, the band have delivered a live clip from the performance captured on that fateful night in Illinois. Watch the complete performance along with the live album audio below.
