Nestled in the small northern Norwegian town of Alta, far above the Arctic circle, there's a rumbling of brutality shaking the earth from a young, dynamic metal quintet known as Féleth. Creating heavy, melodic assaults, that transcends the traditional limits of the genre, these great northern Norwegians, are taking their influences of death metal, thrash, deathcore, rock and even elements of Jazz to unleash to the world their debut album "Depravity" due out via DeadPop Records on May 22, 2020.
Today, the band has teamed up with Metal Injection for the album's exclusive full stream premiere HERE .
The band adds:
"After some years experimenting with a full lineup we've seem to have found our style. Hard, tricky death metal influenced by the whole death metal genre and more. We've worked hard and relentlessly on an album that we consider ready for the world, thanks in big part to the amazing production of Cryptopsy's Christian Donaldson, who we can't believe wanted to work on the record with us!"
"We are happy to share this piece we've been working on, bringing the best (in our minds) out of the different extreme metal genres. We've been grinding hard on this album for over a year, and we're extremely grateful to anyone who will give this album from the middle of nowhere in the far north of Norway a listen!"
With songs like ‘Swan Song’ showing off their deathcore influences, to the epic ‘Dissolution’ jumping from death metal to jazz to black metal seamlessly, and tracks like ‘Pale Tongue’ transforming from in your face death metal to a beautiful ambient soundscape, Féleth is a band that is ready to rise to the occasion and leap into the international moshpit.
The album was mixed and mastered by death metal legend, Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Shadow of Intent, The Agonist, Beyond Creation) at The Grid Productions plus features guest vocals from hometown hero, singer/

"Féleth: Transcends the traditional limits of the genre…" - Permafrost.today
"The new Feléth album is a big melting pot of all things good in modern death metal... They serve up tech-death esque song structures and solos with the beautiful harmonies of melodic death metal and the crushing riffs of a brutal death metal banger. It's an eclectic listen for sure. There are catchy parts here and there that make the record memorable and add to its replay value. The vocalist on here does an amazing job and the production value is high... Great record!" - Zax Record Reviews
