INGESTED released their new album The ashes still lie today, November 4, via metal blade.
To mark the momentous occasion, the band shared the video for “all i lost.” The song + video features Matthew K. Heafy of Trivium.
“We are very excited to bring you our next single ‘All I’ve Lost’, featuring the mighty Matt Heafy,” the singer said. Jason Evans. “This is a song about my personal struggles with addiction, my fall into darkness and my subsequent battle to find my way. I hope you all enjoy this song, blast it loud and remember, even when the world seems darkest, you are valuable, you are valuable and there is always hope. Great love.”
Ingested are the standard bearers of modern British death metal. They churned out bilious anti-anthems for over a decade and a half, dropping a string of releases that helped shape the genre. They come back with The ashes still lie, their most dynamic, inventive and daring release to date, without restraint. The band describes it as “a modern staple. It still has the basic ingested elements of groovy slamming riffs, fast drumming and guttural vocals, but there’s also atmosphere, ethereal moments and some raw old-school aggression.
Over the course of 10 tracks, Ingested hack, slash, and steamroll through anything in their path, and The ashes still lie easily stands as the culmination of an already impressive career.
Founded in 2006 in Manchester, England, Ingested have since toured extensively with Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Nile, Carnifex and Revocation, and have been seen performing on European festival stages including Summer Breeze Open Air. Reduced to a trio, the group feels like it’s the best place it’s ever been, allowing the members to work at the top of their game.
The ashes still lie was mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson. It was co-produced by the band and a former collaborator Nico Beninatowith beater Lyn Jeffs living near Beninato’s studio in Majorca and recording his drums there, while Sean Hynes recorded his guitars at his home in the UK with the help of the producer remotely. Voice tracking was interrupted by Jason Evans falling seriously ill on his way to Mallorca eventually and was eventually found in Manchester. The bass was again provided by Dominique Grimard (Ion Dissonance/The Last Crime).
Ingested succinctly sums up their existence by saying, “We were always the underdogs, always fighting for crumbs. Well, it’s time to get out of this fucking way, because now it’s our turn to eat at the table.
You have. Has been. Warned.
