After releasing high-profile widely loved 2018 death metal albums from Augury and Inferi, rising label The Artisan Era is ready to unleash even more quality death metal upon the masses. Enter recent signees Mordant Rapture, a San Jose, California-based group delivering powerful symphonic heavy technical death metal with a strong black metal influence coursing through it.

‘The Abnegation’ EP is a five-song whirlwind of symphonic and blackened technical death metal influenced by the grandiose nature of film scores and also by groups such as Spawn of Possession, Emperor, Necrophagist, and Dissection.

Today the band partnered with Gear Gods to launch an exclusive dual-guitar play-through video of their song Withered. Which comes from their new five-song EP ‘The Abnegation’ that saw release on July 13th through The Artisan Era.
