Danish metal four piece Rising just completed work on a forthcoming third album to be released in April of 2016 as the band gears up for a string of first shows in over two years.
Formed in 2008, Rising released two DIY EPs, building momentum with the “To Solemn Ash” debut LP in 2011 and the follow-up “Abominor” in 2013. Following the recordings of “Abominor,” the trio dissolved, and as the sole remaining member guitarist Jacob Krogholt has since then rebuilt the band with original drummer Martin Niemann, bass player Bjarke Kofoed and singer Morten Grønnegaard.
The new Rising lineup entered the studio in August and September to record the band’s third album with producer Jacob Bredahl (By The Patient, The Kandidate, etc.), who also mixed the effort, while Brad Boatright (Nails, Converge, etc.) has overseen the mastering.
The yet-untitled album consists of ten songs, still undeniably Rising in its crushing heaviness, firm songwriting and intricate arrangements, while Grønnegaard with his more melodic vocals lends a classic metal vibe to the band. The album will be released via Indisciplinarian in April and will be backed by touring in the group’s native Denmark and abroad. Currently announced dates include:
11/13/2015 Stengade – Copenhagen, DK w/ Galvano
11/27/2015 Radar – Aarhus, DK w/ By The Patient
11/28/2015 Ved Amagerbanen 9 – Copenhagen, DK w/ By The Patient
11/19/2015 Templet – Lyngby DK @ Black Christmas w/ Redwood Hill
