Enter recent signees Mordant Rapture, a San Jose, California-based group delivering powerful symphonic heavy technical death metal with a strong black metal influence coursing through it.
‘The Abnegation’ is a five-song whirlwind of symphonic and blackened technical death metal influenced by the grandiose nature of film scores and also by groups such as Spawn of Possession, Emperor, Necrophagist and Dissection. Active since 2013, Mordant Rapture – The Abnegation will strongly appeal to fans of Irreversible Mechanism, Enfold Darkness, Spawn Of Possession, and Mirrorthrone.
