Beaten to Death – Norwegian Grindcore Outfit Reveal Video For New Song “Dalbane” 

Norwegian grindcore innovators Beaten to Death have just revealed a music video for a brand new track off the band’s forthcoming sixth full-length studio album “Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis”, which is scheduled to be released on May 31st via Mas-Kina Recordings.

Titled “Dalbane”, this new video has premiered at Decibel Magazine, who commented “This is a band that employs barely-distorted guitars, discordant/diminished noise/indie rock chord structures, a straight-edge drummer whose nickname is ‘Bartender’ and a wickedly sardonic sense of humor all crammed into 90-120 second-long songs with titles like “Don’t You Dare to Call Us Heavy Metal,” “True Norwegian Internet Metal Warrior…”

The band had this to say about the new video: “The Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis album was recorded by our guitar player Tommy at one of our favourite venues, Parkteatret Scene. They were kind enough to let us use it over a few summer days in 2022. The video for ‘Dalbane’ is basically just a few iPhone-snippets of the band getting ready to push that record button. And having pizza. Thanks, Parkteatret! The lyrics to ‘Dalbane’ are about riding a roller coaster that only goes down. No hills on this joy ride.”

As always, the record was recorded live and mixed by guitarist Tommy Hjelm, and just like the previous two releases, William Hay signs the amazing illustration that adorns its cover. Pre-orders are now available at this location.

The Oslo-based five-piece claim that they have all “aged horribly” since the band’s acclaimed last album, “Last Maar, Ik Verhuis Naar Het Bos”, was released in 2021 and have embraced that natural process and its theme within this new effort, but dismiss any thoughts of a band slowing down and settling into a more relaxed acceptance of things though for Beaten to Death are as uncompromising and voracious as ever and “Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis” ensures no one will have any doubts. Unleashing their familiar and fiercely individual torrents of grindcore dispute with melodic discord, the new offering is Beaten to Death at their most physically merciless, creatively ravenous and gleefully mischievous.

Unleashed on the grindcore scene back in 2011, Beaten To Death has quarrelled with and dismissed expectations of the genre and the boundaries of any hardcore fury from day one. It has seen their five full-lengths from debut “Xes and Strokes” through to “Last Maar, Ik Verhuis Naar Het Bos” greedily welcomed and frequently acclaimed. Of course their sixth full-length holds nothing back in its dismissal of trends and expected processed procedures in its making either, broadly grinning at both and having fun with the themes it takes apart.
