It’s been four years coming but Danish death metal band Dawn of Demise have returned with the brutal debut single from their new album, The Suffering.
“Deride the Wretch” is three minutes of groovy, crushing riffs paired with a sharp, mechanical-looking lyric video. There aren’t many frills in the song— Dawn of Demise rounds out the instrumental with lyrics about the changing of time and hierarchies, along with the death you’d expect in a death metal song.
The Suffering is out on August 26 via Unique Leader Records. It will soon be available for preorder here.
Dawn of Demise previously released a teaser for the full album on Unique Leader’s Youtube channel. The Suffering will be the band’s fourth full-length release, the first since 2012’s Rejoice in Vengeance.
