“…a take-no-prisoners-and-add-no-filler kind of record; each song is loaded with a sense of urgency and notes don’t feel wasted or unnecessary.” — Decibel
Stream / Share IMMORTAL BIRD’s Thrive On Neglect At THIS LOCATION
Thrive On Neglect, the anticipated new full-length from IMMORTAL BIRD, is currently streaming in its ferocious entirety via Decibel Magazine. The premiere comes in advance of the record’s worldwide release Friday July 5th through 20 Buck Spin.
Writes Decibel of the release, “Thrive On Neglect is a take-no-prisoners-and-add-no-filler kind of record; each song is loaded with a sense of urgency and notes don’t feel wasted or unnecessary. Vocalist Rae Amitay is on fire on Thrive On Neglect, delivering each line with a throat-shredding tone that matches her bandmates’ furious playing. There’s something for everyone here: blackened, blasting insanity, crushing down-tuned parts and even a few opportunities for quiet introspection.”
Stream IMMORTAL BIRD’s Thrive On Neglect alongside an in-depth interview with Amitay at THIS LOCATION.
Catch IMMORTAL BIRD live later this month with additional appearances to be announced in the weeks to come.

Nearly four years in the making, Thrive On Neglect is a blistering statement of intent from a band ascending into full bloom. Boasting the punishingly heavy production work of Dave Otero (Archspire, Cattle Decapitation, Khemmis) ideally suited for IMMORTAL BIRD‘s tumultuous arrangements and orchestrated chaos, Thrive On Neglect takes the perilous road of musical diversity and commands it with a bloodthirsty rage. With a multi-layered sound running the gamut from pummeling grind and death metal to dissonant blackened metal, angular noise, and complex hardcore, IMMORTAL BIRD defies simple categorization. The band’s compositions fuse into strikingly savage songs, vast in their scope and more than the sum of their disparate parts, merging the progressive and destructive into a maelstrom of raging fire. Rae Amitay’s seething vocal exorcisms and targeted lyrical aggression provide the connective tissue holding the stylized violence together.
“A band making beautiful music for a broken sort of person.” – Kerrang’s 50 Best American Metal Bands From The Last Decade
“A tour-de-force demonstration of the feral rage of which the group is readily capable, the track explodes into violent action with a dissonant blackened staccato riff and thundering blast beats before vocalist Rae Amitay’s derelict vocals descend upon the grime and chaos of the group’s sonic misanthropy.” — Invisible Oranges on “Avolition”
“This is, absolutely, music that intends to overwhelm. To hear a band like IMMORTAL BIRD live is to be able to lose oneself in the bursts of energy and anarchy that they wield so capably.” — Treble Album Of The Week
“The beauty of IMMORTAL BIRD is their seamless integration of several styles. If Thrive On Neglect were a weapon, its final track (‘Stumbling Toward Catharsis’) shows a finished blade tempered and hammered to battle-ready perfection, the payoff of four years of hard work all culminating in groovy moments of unmitigated ferocity.” — Everything Is Noise
“Uncompromising and niche-less, Thrive On Neglect should place IMMORTAL BIRD on best-of lists come year’s end, and secure for them a place at the table of the heaviest hitters in modern metal.” — Last Rites
“…a battering ram of destruction that properly follows up Empress/Abscess.” — Metal Injection
” This band has grown from one that showed promise of being one of metal’s sharpest voices to fully achieving that on their smothering second album.” — Meat Mead Metal
“…it might be one of the finest extreme releases of the decade. There is nary a wasted riff, cymbal choke, or unfathomably deep growl through its course and IMMORTAL BIRD dance so goddamn gracefully between ludicrously heavy grind and morose, progressive death metal of the highest order.” — Heavy Blog Is Heavy
