The Flaying Reveals New Album “Angry, Undead” Details

The Flaying, death metal from Quebec City, Canada will release their second album “Angry, Undead” on March?22,?2019, via PRC Music. Working with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the band has manifested pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date.

Their first single off this devastating sophomore album is “La Valse du Scorpion” which is described by the band as:

“Poetry of obsessive dependence stranded in duplicity and evil; the will to confront the same Einstein sentence about trying to get different results by doing the same things on and on and avoiding insanity BUT the power within to sublimate absolute evil by the will and preservation of a pure heart, it’s a love song as well.”

The concept of “Angry, Undead” is an intricate one with each of the eight songs falling under a distinct axis: Chaos (social manifestations); Madness (individual manifestations); and Void (existential manifestations). It is brutal, instinctive, unique, and wicked, and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Archspire, Suffocation, and Deicide.

Track Listing:
1. Ouverture Écarlate
2. Disloqué
3. Place du Parvis
4. Genuflect
5. Egocentric Predicament
6. Elegy of Emptiness
7. La Valse du Scorpion
8. Angry, Unleashed
9. Angry, Undead

A new Ensiferum live clip, recorded in Pratteln, Switzerland on May 12, 2018, can also be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=r98dPpp1Tkg

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”
