Danish metal four-piece, RISING, has completed their new and forthcoming third album to be released in April 2016, as the band gears up for their first shows in over two years.
Formed in 2008, RISING, at that time a trio, quickly gained praise in the metal scene with their first two DIY EPs, then going on to build momentum with their To Solemn Ash debut LP in 2011 and the follow-up Abominor in 2013. Following the recordings of Abominor, the trio dissolved, and as the sole remaining member guitarist Jacob Krogholt has since then rebuilt the band with original drummer Martin Niemann, bass player Bjarke Kofoed and singer Morten Grønnegaard.
The new RISING lineup entered the studio in August and September to record the band’s third album with producer Jacob Bredahl (By The Patient, The Kandidate, etc.), who also mixed the effort, while Brad Boatright (Nails, Converge, etc.) has overseen the mastering. The yet untitled album consists of ten songs, still undeniably RISING in its crushing heaviness, firm songwriting and intricate arrangements, while Grønnegaard with his more melodic vocals lends a more classic metal vibe to the band. The album will be released via Indisciplinarian in April and will be backed by touring in their native Denmark and abroad.
For now, RISING is preparing for four Danish shows in November, which marks the band’s first live appearances since May 2013. The shows will consist of primarily new material along with a couple of oldies. As the new album includes intricate guitar parts arranged for two guitarists, RISING will be joined at the shows by their good friend and guitarist extraordinaire Anders Bo Rasmussen, formerly of A Kid Herafter and Sygdom.
