WRVTH released their critically-lauded self-titled full-length via Unique Leader last year. Tracked at SharkBite/Castle Ultimate Studios by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, All Shall Perish et al.), the records features a guest appearance from Daniel Casares of Bay Area jazz group, Atta Kid, on saxophone and continues to astound the ears of fans and critics globally for its expert balance of beauty and brutality.

“Exploring technically-driven death metal through a more emotive and atmospheric approach, WRVTH often takes the road less traveled,” noted Dead Rhetoric upon initial investigation of the record, further commending the band’s, “innovation within the technical death metal genre. A genre that is frequently fueled by sterility and/or clinical productions, Wrvth comes as a breath of fresh air… WRVTH can be bold and visceral, all while providing depth and feelings.” MetalSucks shared the sentiment. “[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.” Added Metal Injection of the band’s first single, “‘Harrowing Winds’ is deceiving in that it begins with a very subdued, atmospheric guitar passage before taking off into a cacophony of sonic chaos. This is not an easy balance to achieve well, but WRVTH seem to have it nailed down.”
