umbra vitae 2024

Metal supergroup Umbra Vitae has premiered the first single, "Belief is Obsolete", from their upcoming album, Light of Death, out June 7th via Deathwish Inc

The group features vocalist Jacob Bannon (Converge), guitarist Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord), guitarist Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues), bassist Greg Weeks (The Red Chord) and drummer Jon Rice (ex-Job for a Cowboy)

Pre-orders available here.

Martin shared the following:

This song came from a demo I recorded at ye olde home studio although, as with all of the songs on this record, we managed to make it sound even more disgusting in the best possible way! I like Swedish Death Metal and Thrash, can you tell?  Big, mean, hairy end riff to carry you out.

Bannon added:

Musically, 'Belief Is Obsolete' is signature Sean Martin Bay Area Thrash worship. The performances from all of us on this one are completely redlined from beginning to end. Lyrically I explore the idea that 'belief' in the traditional sense is obsolete in the modern age we live in. It is abused as a shield and weapon socially, politically, and spiritually, ultimately becoming a burden for all.
