“It’s a perfect backdrop for their ethereal, ambient, soul-crushing sound that switches without warning from one mood to the next.” – Gear Gods
Atmospheric tech death unit WRVTH today issues part two of their live, in-studio video series with “Forlorn” which comes by way of the band’s self-titled full length, issued last year by Unique Leader Records.
The moving, black and white performance clip was captured at Fang Studios with Jason Enriquez of FLYTRAPtv. “We feel the songs on our record are best represented in a live context,” said the band in a collective statement. “‘Forlorn’ is especially one of those songs that a raw production lends to the song accordingly, lyrically, and musically.”
Adds Gear Gods, “WRVTH are feeling ‘Forlorn’ in this live-in-studio video, which will likely make you feel forlorn as well, as it is shot all in black and white. It’s a perfect backdrop for their ethereal, ambient, soul-crushing sound that switches without warning from one mood to the next. Their recently released self-titled album… features a host of progressive blackened death jams for your aural pleasure. This band is putting out some truly interesting and unique sounding music (that’s also quite gorgeous – sometimes the two are mutually exclusive it seems), and you’ll be feeling your own wrath if you sleep on this album.”
Take in “Forlorn,” now playing at Gear Gods, at THIS LOCATION.
WRVTH is currently in the midst of a headlining tour which commenced on August 5th in Bend, Oregon. The journey includes an appearance at Jamfest in Beamsville, Ontario and will run through September 3rd in Sacramento, California.

“[WRVTH‘s] penchant for dramatic atmospherics under ominous, stormy death metal might garner them ‘on a playlist with Fallujah’ one-liners. And the collective’s technical wizardry certainly makes them right at home on Unique Leader. But damn if the devil isn’t in the details here. WRVTH add to their sonic stew a heavy helping of skronk – think Gorguts, Ulcerate, Artificial Brain, etc. – and a dash of post-hardcore sensibility, both in the harmonic structure of the chords they’re using and the vocal approach, all of which makes for a much more moody and emotional experience.” – MetalSucks
“WRVTH‘s long stretches of ambience, combined with a half-billion different guitar riffs and occasional blast-beats, give the band the sense of an auteur, painting a multitude of different, distinctive pictures within their new disc’s run-time.” – No Clean Singing
“WRVTH reemerge with a unique, albeit morose, offering that outshines any previous efforts.” – Sputnik Music
