British Death Metallers INGESTED, have revealed an official video for “Pantheon”, the latest single from their upcoming album, “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”, which will be released on April 5th via Metal Blade Records!

Not many top-tier Death Metal bands can record and release an album a year and follow it with an extensive tour. That’s hardly ever been the case for Manchester, England’s crushing, visceral INGESTED. Since the release of their fifth album, 2020’s “Where Only God May Tread”, the band has been on a creative tear that has produced almost a full record every year – even through the COVID-19 pandemic – but has resulted in the kind of musical growth that only comes from constantly practicing, playing, and writing.

The band’s latest output, “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”, is not only as innovative and brutal as their last disc – the bleak, firestorm “Ashes Lie Still” – it showcases a band willing to expand its creativity without sacrificing the ferocity that made it one of the most impressively destructive, Technical Death Metal bands on the scene. “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams” is proof that once Ingested sniffs out a trail of musical blood, they ravenously follow it until they’ve uncovered a festering feast.

Whether pummelling listeners with double-bass rolls, blast-beats, and grinding rhythm; breaking it all down with jagged, staggered riffs, and piercing harmonics; or flooding the mix with rapid-fire bursts of minor key melodies, Ingested has injected all of their experience, skill, and artistry into the ten trenchant new songs on “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”. Where the new album differs from its predecessor isn’t in its brutality or melodicism, it’s in the songwriting and the way the tunes flow together in a way that’s vicious, but not morose.

While INGESTED were in a solid headspace creatively while working on …Tide…, they were tangibly weighed down by some personal traumas and frustrations they’ve faced in recent years. Such issues make their songs more relatable, and ultimately inspired the album title, The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams. “It’s essentially a metaphor for trying to make it through life and forging a career for yourself, including all the hurdles that come your way,” notes vocalist Jason Evans.

Some of the conflicts for INGESTED were rooted in depression and insecurity, a condition that fueled the themes behind “Pantheon.” Right at a time when the band was playing huge shows to devoted crowds and hanging with bands they’ve admired for years (including DYING FETUS and SUFFOCATION), and newer groups shaking the scene, (such as LORNA SHORE and SYLOSIS), Evans was struggling with an identity crisis.

Elaborates Evans: “I wrote ‘Pantheon’ when I was suffering from a heavy bout of imposter syndrome. We’ve done all these big tours with all these huge bands, bands we grew up idolizing, and now we’re rubbing shoulders with giants so to speak. It’s about questioning if you belong, if you’re good enough, am I able to keep up with my peers? Can I fill the shoes of my idols once they are gone? Do I deserve it?“

Produced by the band with the guidance of recording engineer Nico Beninato, the record includes a guest appearance by Chimaira’s Mark Hunter who provides guest vocals for the track “In Nothingness” and SYLOSIS singer Josh Middleton who contributes to “Expect To Fail,” as well as the striking cover art of David Seidman.

Following the release of “The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams”, INGESTED will embark upon a European headlining tour with support provided by FALLUJAH, VULVODYNIA and MÉLANCOLIA.
