DAATH To Release Instrumental Version Of THE DECEIVERS

Share This:

Album of the year contenders DÅÅTH will release an instrumental edition of their critically acclaimed The Deceivers full-length digitally this Friday, June 28th, on Metal Blade Records!

Monstrously heavy but beautifully orchestrated, blessed with melodies that will haunt anybody fortunate enough to hear it, The Deceivers is at once a devastating reminder and giant leap forward that showcases the technical wizardry and brutal intensity that the Atlanta, Georgia-bred band is capable of. The record includes a variety of guest guitar solos across numerous tracks by Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Arch Enemy), Mark Holcomb (Periphery), Dean Lamb (Archspire), Per Nilsson, (Scar Symmetry, Meshuggah), Spiro Dussias (Platonist), and Dan Sugarman (Ice Nine Kills), with renowned video game composer Mick Gordon (Doom Eternal) contributing sound design and synth to “Purified By Vengeance.”

Blabbermouth lauded a “modern metal record aimed squarely at connoisseurs and tech freaks, but it also has some huge tunes and barrels of charisma.” MetalSucks concurred, “The Deceivers is destined to go down as a career highlight for DÅÅTH; a jewel in their crown if ever there was one. It really is that good.” Metal Injection hailed an “epic and rhythmic prog album…” Added Knotfest, “Each track is a labyrinth of complex rhythms and searing melodies, offering a rich auditory experience. The technical skill and compositional daring make it a standout in the metal community.” 

Comments founding guitarist Eyal Levi on the instrumental edition of The Deceivers, “I’ve always wished that our fans could get a chance to hear all the little and not so little details that go into our songs. DÅÅTH’s music is like peeling back the layers of an onion – there’s a lot more going on than you might think. When vocals are added, the copious amount of guitar layers, orchestration, synth, sound design, and percussion might fade into the background, and that’s ok, because what really counts is how the song hits you. However, these songs are built as instrumental compositions first. Vocals don’t come into the picture until the songs can stand on their own instrumentally. We’re giving you the chance to hear the album in its pure instrumental form. It’s your opportunity to really dive into all those hidden layers and appreciate the depth of the music.”

Adds Jesse Zuretti (orchestration, synth, guitars), “Instrumental albums sometimes serve as a break from the vocals for fans. But in the context of The Deceivers, it’s really more about giving the orchestra and synths a chance to shine.  Especially when the vocals are so commanding and powerful, it’s hard to hear the nuances behind them. The instrumental version of The Deceivers allows the listener to have a new experience when listening to the album they’d already listened to. And for those who haven’t heard the vocal version, it’s a chance to piece the music together in a unique way.”Stream DÅÅTH’s The Deceivers (Instrumentals) https://youtu.be/C42m7SVUR2Y
