With the Oceans Into Their Graves LP by Denmark-based metal outfit RISING on the verge of its release this week, Decibel Magazine is now hosting a stream of the album in its triumphant entirety. Offers the mag in their introduction to the record, “The quintet’s third full-length storms ashore with the head-liquefying sludgehammer tone, and stays on the mind with a current of trad metal catchiness.”
Stream RISING’s Oceans Into Their Graves now via Decibel RIGHT HERE.
RISING also recently released an ominous, claustrophobic video created by director Palle Demant for the track All Dirt; see it at Metal Injection HERE.
Oceans Into Their Graves will be released on 180-gram virgin black 12” vinyl and digital formats this Friday, April 29th; preorders for the vinyl are available in the US exclusively through Earsplit Distro HERE and internationally via Indisciplinarian, the label created by RISING guitarist Jacob Krogholt HERE.
RISING has recently been confirmed for a performance on July 2nd on this year’s Roskilde Festival in their native Denmark, one of the biggest festivals in Northern Europe, sharing the bill with acts such as Sleep, Slayer, Ghost and Gojira. Prior to Roskilde, the band will play a release show on April 29th in Copenhagen, with more shows and a full European tour to be announced in the months ahead.

Since their 2008 formation, RISING has displayed relentless, crushing tones, fierce musicianship, and a strong sense for melody and songwriting, their sound slickly melding straightforward classic metal elements with the mammoth amplification and persuasion of upbeat sludge/doom metal. Those traits follow through on Oceans Into Their Graves – the first album since the band’s revamping process following their 2013 Abominor LP – yet Oceans Into Their Graves also sees this new incarnation of the beast hungrier than ever, while the melodies soar with even more invigoration, their delivery greased to perfection and operating at full steam, resulting in the band’s undeniably strongest album yet. Boasting nearly forty-five minutes of mega-infectious riff domination, the album was recorded by producer Jacob Bredahl (By The Patient, The Kandidate) at Dead Rat Studios in Aarhus, Denmark, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Sleep, Black Breath, Old Man Gloom), and bears cover artwork created by RISING vocalist Morten Grønnegaard.
