Manchester death metal outfit Ingested are the gift that keeps on giving.

Since their 2020 album Where Only God May Tread, the three-piece masters of metal have released roughly one album per year, culminating in The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams which will be unleashed via Metal Blade Records on April 5.

“I didn’t get into a metal band to appease people.”

Jason Evans

Following the bleak firestorm that was Ashes Lie Still, Ingested have produced a more upbeat body of work that more reflects where the band are at personally in their lives.

Never afraid to experiment within and beyond their genre, Ingested thread a myriad of subtleties through each new release, allowing themselves to explore different sonic plains while still remaining true to their core. It is an approach that has seen the band rise rapidly through the ranks and should see them ascend even further with The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams.

The band produced the album themselves with the guidance of recording engineer Nico Beninato, further expanding their musical horizons, with guest appearances from Chimaira‘s Mark Hunter and Sylosis Josh Middleton enhancing the finished product.

Vocalist Jason Evans joined HEAVY to tell us more.

“We’ve been sitting on this album for well over a year now,” he began. “We released our last album Ashes Lie Still in November 2022 and then four weeks after that album was released, in December 2022, we went into the studio and recorded The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams, so we’ve had this album done and dusted for well over a year. The way that we like to work is we like to work ahead, because we’re always writing. So when an album’s done, it’s done. Let’s just get in there, get in the studio, get it recorded, then what we’re doing then is we’re giving ourselves time to really prepare for the announcement and release of the album. So we’ve had a year to make sure the artwork looks amazing, make sure the music videos are all looking great, so that’s how we like to work. We’d rather give ourselves the time to make sure everything’s exactly how we want it to be for the presentation of the album so when it does get announced and people know that it’s coming, everything is ready. We don’t like rushing around. We like it done. I’m excited to finally announce to everyone that it exists and that it’s coming out. We don’t have to wait that long, but in the meantime we’ve just released the first single, Paragon Of Purity, with a music video. That’s doing really well. All our fans seem to love it, and then we’ve got more. We’ve got more coming out in the run-up to the album’s release and probably beyond the release as well. We’ve got loads of stuff coming. We’ve just announced a headline tour through the UK and Europe, which runs through April and May. We’re taking out Fallujah and Vulvodynia, so I’m excited. It’s gonna be yet another busy year for us.”

In the full interview, Jason talks more about The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams and what to expect, what Ingested were going for musically, what things the band experimented with, the two guest artists on the album and what they each brought to their song, the process of producing and the benefits to the band of knowing how, their release process and how the band harnesses its creativity, fans reactions to such frequent releases, how much musical growth Ingested have in them and more.

HEAVY would like to thank our sponsor RODE. Intro music and end song Paragon Of Purity by Ingested.
