ATRÆ BILIS: Canadian death metal band announce debut release on Transcending Obscurity Records

Added 22 May 2020, 9:26 PM

It's great to come across new bands that are redefining what death metal is all about - just when I thought I'd heard it all, I come across Atræ Bilis and they managed to surprise me with their constantly changing mix of different death metal styles. This is for fans of dissonant, brutal and technical death metal while not adhering to any particular one for too long. Perhaps just one song wouldn't suffice to understand their sound but we're leading with the song we used for our label sampler, Ectopian, which you can listen to on Bandcampand YouTube, while another official video comes out via No Clean Singing later in the day.
Atræ Bilis from Canada are ingesting the best elements of all the styles of death metal and spewing forth an amalgam that turns the genre inside out. There is no template for their kind of music. It's wildly unpredictable but remains coherent and catchy despite it all. It has traces of technical death, brutal death, dark death and even dissonant death, with a tinge of melody and atmosphere to top things off. This is an intense shapeshifter of an album that remains engrossing from start to finish, without losing the core sound and aesthetics. The album feels like an exercise in what's great about the genre without adhering to a particular style for too long and thereby sidestepping its trappings too. 'Divinihility' will mark a new chapter in engaging, furious, forward-thinking death metal that sets the tone for other similar-minded bands on the label such as Depravity, Cutterred Flesh, Replicant and more.
