After releasing high-profile widely loved 2018 albums from Augury and Inferi, rising label The Artisan Era has continued throughout the year to unleash even more quality death metal upon the masses. 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.


On July 13th, Mordant Rapture released The Abnegation, 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. Recently at the end of September the band partnered with Gear Gods to launch an exclusive dual-guitar playthrough video for their song “Withered”.



Eager to roll out more content supporting the release, the band partnered with Everything Is Noise today to premiere a brand new dual-guitar and vocals playthrough for “Unsightly Beast”.
