Overtoun signing statement: “We are truly honored and happy to sign this distribution deal with Wormholedeath. ‘This Darkness Feels Alive’ is an honest album that navigates through complex concepts of mental health, isolation, depression, etc; that came from the deepest part of ourselves. We invite everyone to listen to the record from start to finish, so hopefully you can connect with the sensations we had while writing it. All the work we did on the album was trying to achieve the best quality we could provide, thanks to the guidance of Pancho Arenas who produced and mixed it, the knowledge of Flemming Rasmussen who mastered the songs, and the incredible artwork of Paolo Girardi. The result we had as a team made us really proud, and we are excited to share this music to even more people.This partnership with Wormholedeath will help us elevate our career without a doubt. Everything we’ve done in music has been by our own and independently, so having the support of the label is important to us. We will do our best to keep spreading Latin American Metal to the rest of the world.”
Bringing back the brutal force and sounds of Old School Death Metal mixed with Latin American music, the revolutionary young band from Santiago/Boston has been spreading their talent, passion and energy all over the world, characterized with their outstanding musical quality and powerful social commentaries.
The group was born in the hands of Agustin Lobo (drums) and Matias Bahamondes (guitars) in early 2014, but they were not complete until the addition of Mexican vocalist Yoav Ruiz-Feingold, who joined in late 2017. They’ve not stopped working since the release of their debut album Centuries of Lies (2018), which originated from a demo tape called Eyes Wide Open (2016), that establishes a strong social commentary blended by the rage of Progressive Thrash. Going through various lineup changes, their toured their home country twice, getting a lot of recognition in national and international media.
Just in the past year, the renowned bassist Felipe Leyton joined them, finishing their search for an established lineup. Their hard-working attitude led them to write and record their sophomore album in a matter of months since the release of their first LP. They took their perfectionism to another level, searching for the best production quality in every aspect. Their second album ‘This Darkness Feels Alive’ is a record that goes inside the hell of the human mind, alongside a crushing attack of pure and organic Death Metal and It will be reissued via Wormholedeath worldwide.
