Your Chance to Die, who reemerged into the death metal world with their 2013 Red Cord Records sophomore effort, The American Dream, are to release their third album, Ex Nihilo on April 21st, via EMP Label Group’s extreme metal imprint, EMP Underground. Now, the devastating track “Omega” has been released and is available for streaming on SoundCloud.
Recorded by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me), mixed by Zack Ohren (Machine Head), and with album art by French digital artist/illustrator and graphic designer Pierre-Alain D., Ex Nihilo shows the band completely reinvented with deep symphonic atmospheres, inhuman precision and brutality, and a dual-female vocal onslaught.
About Your Chance to Die:
2015/16 saw the addition of Som Pluijmers (ex-Cerebral Bore) on vocals, making her debut on Ex Nihilo, alongside revered death metal vocalist Missi Avila. The dual-female front offers a tandem dose of sheer vocal brutality backed up by the soaring leads and rhythmic precision of Coca Avila and Ron Dalton on guitars. This package is rounded out by the inhuman speed and accuracy of drummer Thomas White.
In late 2016, the band began talking to Grammy-Award-winning (Megadeth bassist) David Ellefson and Thom Hazaert of EMP Label Group. Through these talks, the band found themselves inking a new deal with EMP for the new direction in 2017.
Since their Red Cord Records debut, Suscitacio Somnus, in 2011, and follow-up, The American Dream, in 2013, the band has toured with the likes of Origin, Wednesday 13, King Parrot, Arsonists Get all the Girls, Beyond Creation, and more. In late 2016, the band provided direct support to Cryptopsy through Central America prior to hitting to the studio to record Ex Nihilo. From that session, the band released the track “Shadow and Flame” as part of the EMP Underground Sampler Vol. 1 in late 2016.
