Rage occurs when oxytocin, vasopressin, and corticotropin-releasing hormone are rapidly released from the hypothalamus. This results in the pituitary gland producing and releasing large amounts of the adrenocorticotropic hormone, which causes the adrenal cortex to release corticosteroids. This chain reaction occurs when faced with a threatening situation. Rage can sometimes lead to a state of mind where the individual experiencing it believes, and often is capable of doing things that may normally seem physically impossible.
Four young men from Dayton Ohio know this emotion as if it were carved into their chests. The only way to save themselves from being completely consumed by the emotion that defined them… was to start a band. Together they formed DENIHILIST in the spring of 2015, Let down by life, record labels, relationships, families, this all translated into the music they wrote. Bringing you what you hear now.
We’re not here to be pretty, or to sell trendy merch, or to spread the gospel of some faith.
We’re the type of music you listen to when the woman you “love” runs off with some rich, well endowed, corvette driving, dude that never worked a day in his life and got everything handed to him.
Enjoy the ride, DENIHILIST
About In Dying Arms:
Merging frenzied sonic mediations on violence with the occasional moment of heart-on-sleeve plaintiveness, In Dying Arms’ brand of bipolar deathcore covers the extreme ends of both the emotional and sonic spectrums. Based in Baltimore, Maryland, the brutal quintet got started in 2006, going through some initial growing pains before settling into a lineup consisting of singer Orion Stephens, guitarists Jeremy Magee and John Myers, bassist Terence Bright, and drummer Alvin Richardson. With a sound that artfully blends the passion of post-hardcore with deathcore’s technically stunning aggression, In Dying Arms’ anguished, atmospheric riff-fests set them apart from their contemporaries, allowing them to not only play with the dynamics between the two genres, but to create a genuine interplay between them, giving their music an intriguing amount of depth. In 2009, the deathcore outfit made their debut with the EP This Is Retaliation before eventually signing on with Matchless Records (the label of Chelsea Grin’s Chris Kilbourn) the following year, with their first full-length, Deprivation, following closely behind. Keeping busy, In Dying Arms jumped straight back into the studio, following up in 2011 with their eponymous second album. In 2012, the band signed on with Artery Recordings, which put out their third album, Boundaries, later that year.
Known for their use of dual 8 string guitars, Pathways best describes their music as a masquerade dance with classical waltz movements but, at other times cryptic with certain transitions which keeps the listener on the edge of their seat. The end result is beautiful, yet frightening at times and melodic but in a way that is also haunting.
The band was formed in late 2012 and has solidified their current lineup of Jon Rose (guitars). Jentzen Flaskerud (guitars), Nicholas Scott (vocals), Lorence Drewry (bass) and Wil Lanagan (drums). The quintet aims to deliver an unparalleled musical experience. They strive for a unique and powerful sound showcasing their progressive metal-core background while intertwining classical, melodic and technical influences.
Pathways is no stranger to the studio having a lot of experience under their belts. Their discography includes a self-produced EP called Unconscious Lives(2012), single produced by Dreadcore Productions “Arise” (2013), EP produced by Parallel Focus Studios titled “Harlot”(2014), self-produced single called “Xmas Time” (2014), and the upcoming EP produced by Afflux Studios Dies Irae.
In 2016, the band got the attention of Tragic Hero Records President, Tommy LaCombe. Guitarist Rose explains why Pathways felt this was a perfect partnership, “In the end, we wanted to go with a label that provided us with a more personal/hands-on approach. Plus, Tommy is great.”
Pathways released their Tragic Hero Records debut EP, Dies Irae on April 15th.
