Decibel Mag Premiere THE FLAYING’s ‘Elegy of Emptiness’ Ft. Cryptopsy’s Chris Donaldson

For fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide, Archspire, Cryptopsy, Suffocation – New Album ‘Angry, Undead’ Out March 22nd via PRC Music

THE FLAYING, death metal from Quebec City, Canada will release their second album “Angry, Undead” on March 22, 2019, via PRC Music. Working with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the band has manifested pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date.
Their second single off this devastating sophomore album is ‘Elegy of Emptiness’, which is being premiered via Decibel Magazine:

“We look forward to this album reaching the masses, from start to finish, we feel it will be a great listen. We put in a lot of effort to choose the track listing to feature an onslaught of both French and English songs. We feel it’s great importance to take influenced international English death metal and blend it with sung French Canadian death metal. We have French tracks like ‘La Valse du Scorpion’, ‘Disloqué’ and ‘Place du Parvis’ along with English assaults with ‘Genuflect’, ‘Elegy of Emptiness’, ‘Angry, Unleashed’ and ‘Angry, Undead’. We feel they all meet the standards of tone and sound of international death metal songs. Plus them being produced, mixed and mastered at The Grid (Montreal, QC) by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy), a legend in Quebec and beyond, gave it that extra touch of death.”

Listen to ‘Elegy of Emptiness’ here.


The concept of “Angry, Undead” is an intricate one with each of the eight songs falling under a distinct axis: Chaos (social manifestations); Madness (individual manifestations); and Void (existential manifestations). It is brutal, instinctive, unique, and wicked, and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Archspire, Suffocation, and Deicide.

Album pre-order available on Bandcamp and PRC Music.

BIO:
And it all began with the rope dancer….
Formed in July 2010, The Flaying is a death metal band based in Quebec City, Canada that focuses on fluid melodic construction of songs featuring brutal sections which are further complemented by vocals with both low end growls and hateful high pitches.
Since their first release Unhope (2014), Seb, Did, Wil and Mike are forging ahead in order to adopt a more brutal approach: adding new grooves, a greater velocity, and creating a wider ambiance as well as keeping breakdowns and progressive parts with counterpoints constructing a main theme of anger and a general hate of humanity.
Soldiering on with the philosophy of one band, four individuals, four personalities to collide, the writing process is a team effort initially seeing the band collaborate on riffs and groove ideas, adding a flourish of low-end colors, and blending the whole thing together with flying vocals that create a manifest of pure mayhem. This product of this steadfast diablerie will be realized on March 22, 2019, when the second album “Angry, Undead” is unleashed on PRC Music.
