Atmospheric tech death collective WRVTH today issues the confounding video accompaniment to the track “Cease To Exist” via Decibel Magazine. The tune comes by way of the band’s self-titled full-length release via Unique Leader Records.
Elaborates bassist Taylor Preston of the fiery clip, “We decided to work with Cory Davis of Yellowbox Films again for ‘Cease To Exist,’ as we loved the work he did for our music video ‘Malaise.’ This song is the closing track to our self-titled release and it is fitting as it is also our closer for the year, musically speaking. As far as the creation goes, we wrote every part of the music to fit the lyrics. We put all our heads together to form something that we all felt was as fitting as it was meaningful. Even though the song has a seemingly straightforward interpretation, this song means something very different for every person in the band. We didn’t write the song with a mindset of writing something relatable, in fact the events that inspired the song are all very specific and personal to each of us. We gave Cory the lyrics and artistic freedom to form a visual representation of the emotions in this song based on his own interpretation and the feelings the song may incite.”

“[WRVTH‘s] penchant for dramatic atmospherics under ominous, stormy death metal might garner them ‘on a playlist with Fallujah’ one-liners. And the collective’s technical wizardry certainly makes them right at home on Unique Leader. But damn if the devil isn’t in the details here. WRVTH add to their sonic stew a heavy helping of skronk – think Gorguts, Ulcerate, Artificial Brain, etc. – and a dash of post-hardcore sensibility, both in the harmonic structure of the chords they’re using and the vocal approach, all of which makes for a much more moody and emotional experience.” – MetalSucks
“WRVTH‘s long stretches of ambience, combined with a half-billion different guitar riffs and occasional blast-beats, give the band the sense of an auteur, painting a multitude of different, distinctive pictures within their new disc’s run-time.” – No Clean Singing
“WRVTH reemerge with a unique, albeit morose, offering that outshines any previous efforts.” – Sputnik Music
“Wrvth is a triumph in a way that hasn’t really been seen before: by so skillfully blending riffy techdeath with genres that are known for their emotional qualities, WRVTH sees to it that the album is both beautiful and consistently engaging for the listener. This is THE atmospheric techdeath album, and it will be for years to come.” – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
