As 2020 begins, the new year brings a familiar feeling of cyclical rebirth with it as a rush of new music and new talented acts make their presence known to larger audiences for the first time. Having recently signed to The Artisan Era at the end of 2019, technical melodic death metallers Symbolik are proud to announce their upcoming debut album, Emergence. The album is set to drop on Friday, April 10th via The Artisan Era. It is the follow up to their highly-praised 2011 effort, Pathogenesis.
Now in 2020, Symbolik is eager to unleash their magnum opus of neo-classically inspired, hyper-melodic, black metal and symphonic tinged technical death metal music with Emergence. Several years in the making, Emergence is an explosive and mature effort bound to be counted among the strongest death metal releases of the year.
Emergence is strongly recommended for fans of groups such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Inferi, and Alterbeast.
The band partnered with Metal Injection today to premiere “Invoking Oblivion”. The first single to be released from Emergence.

Metal Injection comments on the premiere of “Invoking Oblivion”
“It’s not very common you can call tech-death catchy, but the riffs in “Invoking Oblivion” are the closest you’ll get to an “earworm” in this genre. Nothing overly difficult, nothing overly intense, quite close to the perfect song to show someone trying to get into tech-death actually. The riffs are catchy, and to someone as bad at guitar as myself, seem difficult, but not for the sake of it. Everyone knows those songs that sound like they’re made harder just because they can and not because they should.”
