Ingested: UK Death Metallers Release Brutalizing New Single, “Pantheon”

UK death metallers INGESTED drops their latest single, “Pantheon,” upon the masses today. The brutalizing new hymn comes by way of the band’s latest full-length, The Tide Of Death And Fractured Dreams, set for release on April 5th via Metal Blade Records!

Since their fifth album, 2020’s Where Only God May TreadINGESTED has been on a creative tear that has produced almost a full record every year, each displaying the kind of musical growth that only comes from constantly practicing, playing, and writing. 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 pummeling 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 ten trenchant new tracks. New single, “Pantheon,” in particular, is a scorching conglomeration of alternating tempos, abrupt rhythm shifts and devastating guitar grind between staccato midsections.

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?
