It’s been three years since North Carolina’s Young And In The Way released its hardcore-meets-black-metal debut, I Am Not What I Am. Now slightly less young YAITW has unleashed a new full-length, When Life Comes To Death, on Deathwish Inc., the label cofounded by Converge’s Jacob Bannon. It’s even more vicious and visceral than its predecessor, as evidenced by the crust-caked, gore-smeared video for “Final Dose,” which is being debuted here. There’s no guarantee that the band’s upcoming set on July 23 at the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, Massachusetts—as part of this year’s inaugural Deathwish Fest—will be as bloody. But it might not be much of a stretch.
When Life Comes To Death is available now via Deathwish Inc.
