Official Press Information :
Hailing from Lyon (Fr), DeathAwaits was created in 2002. After humble Death/Thrash beginnings, the band also tries to incorporate hardcore and grindcore elements into their sound. They released two demos Dark Breath (2003) and Reborn (2007) and a split with Bounty Hunter in 2009, before their long-awaited debut Out Of Adversity (2011). Already well-known within the Rhône-Alpes underground scene, DeathAwaits chose to record their second album at Convulsound studio (Lyon). This second effort entitled The Abominable came out in February 2014 via Send The Wood Records, with the title track featured in the soundtrack for French blockbuster Joséphine s’arrondit (2016). For their 3rd album, which is entitled Solve Coagula, out via Sliptrick Records, the band has collaborated with Vamacara studio (Nantes) for the mix and mastering. DeathAwaits’ music becomes increasingly aggressive with “razor-sharp riffs and powerful groovy sections”. The five-piece intensively toured France, Belgium and Spain, with 38 shows, and opened for internationally renowned acts such as ABORTED , NAPALM DEATH, SEPULTURA, EXODUS, MISERY INDEX, DESTRUCTION, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BENIGHTED, NO RETURN, DAGOBA, LOUDBLAST, etc. Also produced at Vamacara studios, the 4th album Rapture Smites (2019) sees the band step up their sound, with 11 intense, colourful and catchy new tracks with a lyrical concept revolving around a contemporary take on the biblical myth of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
