Soul Gutter, a blackened death metal group from Jyväskylä, Finland will release their debut full-length album Veins on Friday March 30th, 2018. So, get ready for a full dose of pitch-black, hardcore-infused death metal! Veins will be released independently by Soul Gutter on CD and as a digital download.
Soul Gutter’s comments on their debut album:
“Our debut album ‘Veins’ consists of ten songs that are darker, heavier and more aggressive than anything we’ve released before. We feel that the compositions are quite diverse, but form a very consistent album as a whole. There are definitely more black metal influences on this album than before, and we’ve tuned down the hardcore elements a bit. The main focus is still on death metal in its darkest form.
The lyrics on the album are centered around the inevitable death of innocence, which is a universal part of the human experience. Surrounded by all the dismal byproducts of our social existence, no matter how we choose to try to lead our lives there is no escaping unjust suffering. In fact, it often ends up becoming the very chisel shaping us as human beings. Between where we come from and where we end up, there is bound to be a brush with tragedy. The songs on ‘Veins’ focus on different forms of this suffering and the imprints it can leave.
Veins is an extremely heavy and relentless album both musically and lyrically. It’s probably not the easiest listen, but we think it might be a very rewarding one.”
