It’s just a few short weeks away now – Damnation Festival 2013 is (once again) going to be the heavy music event of the Winter here in the UK. We’re going to be heading up to Leeds University in force come 02 November, but until then, we’ve put together a Sunday Spotify Slaylist to hype us up for what’s (once again) one of the best one-dayer metal fest line-ups the UK has ever seen.
The UK’s Dyscarnate play their own unique breed of intense, blistering death metal. After devastating venues across the UK, they have become a force to be reckoned with on the frontline of the British death metal scene.
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Annihilate to Liberate’ in 2008, Dyscarnate were met with overwhelming feedback from national magazines, record labels and fans alike. This resulted in a multi-album deal with the UK’s Siege Of Amida Records for Europe and Candlelight Records for the US/Canada. Read more on Last.fm
Dyscarnate on Thrash Hits
March 31st, 2013
Earlier this week, the folks over in charge of Tech-Fest 2013 made their first line-up announcement – and they weren’t messing about. 25 bands, including all three major headline acts, were all covered in the first batch of names. That’s the kind of festival announcement we can get behind, and the kind that we’re making the subject of this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist.

And So It Came To Pass
Siege Of Amida Records
27 February 2012
Eshewing the recent trend in modern metal to be as technical as possible, Dyscarnate put their faith in big, brutal riffing and complex, but never wanky, drum work. That isn’t to say they pound out drop-D, one-note, bore-you-to-tears crap-fests – far from it. You don’t need a degree in guitar wank to enjoy this album. What you will need, however, is a neck, because I guarantee you’ll be nodding along, if not full-on windmill headbanging to at least one track.

Enduring The Massacre
Siege Of Amida Records
03 May 2010
by Tom Dare
Dyscarnate are a death metal band. Saying that feels slightly strange – every other new band who incorporate “death metal” into their genre name seem to want it prefixed by “brutal symphonic progressive technical ambient blackened”, and definitely don’t want you to call them “deathcore” no matter how many hardcore breakdowns they have. It’s something of a relief to find something as straight-up death metal as this. It’s also part of the reason their debut record Enduring The Massacre is so good, and why this is a band to be genuinely excited about.
