Wormholedeath has announced they have signed Czech melodic death metal band Passion For Sorrow and will release their debut full length Rotting Immortality on August 19th. The song “Dark Seed” is currently available to preview, which you can listen to below. While melodic death metal has become one of those genres where a lot of the material tends to sound the same, this band managed to really leave an impression on me. They have some of the familiar sweeping melodies, but incorporate gothic elements and switch up the guitar work regularly to keep things feeling different. I’m interested in checking out the rest, and think Wormholedeath might have a real winner on their hands.

We are extremely proud to announce the signing of Czech Melodic Death Metal combo Passion For Sorrow.

The band just completed the long work behind the scenes to produce, record and create their debut album “Rotting Immortality” which will be released via The Orchard on August the 19th through the worldwide digital market.

The record that has been produced, recorded and mixed by Jonathan Mazzeo and mastered by Dan Swanö will feature the following tracks:

Secrets Of The Dark
The Phantom
Dark Seed
Lost
My Inspiration
World At The Abyss
Dying
The Day Death Left The Grave
Rotting Immortality

 

To celebrate this special day the band have uploaded a full song preview that can be streamed.

 

About the band:

It’s not that long when Passion For Sorrow has started invading Prague’s underground music clubs, making local metal fans surprised by its contrastful synergy of death power, gothic beauty and doom sadness. Despite a “new in the town” band, Passion For Sorrow has been immediately recognized and invited to gig with some of the leading local bands like Assessor, Unborn or Nocturnal Pestilence. Recently has also supported the tour of Czech gothic rock legend Greedy Invalid.

The roots of the band’s production are inspired by Scandinavian death metal hailing Dark Tranquility, In Flames, Amon Amarth or Opeth. In contradiction to the death metal vocal barking and heavy riffing, there’s simultaneously spice of emotional melodies supported by classical orchestra instruments.

In January 2014 Passion For Sorrow hit Mathlab Recording Studio in Italy to record its debut album “Rotting Immortality”. In the album, Passion For Sorrow presents their own version of how the living death classics has started, taking us to the time before the death infection has taken over the world as we know it from the movies. The story is rather filled with mysticism, occultism and gothic romance then sci-fi.

The band stated: “We are truly happy and proud to send our baby “Rotting Immortality” out into the world through Worm Hole Death. We have left a piece of our hearts in this album and on the top we have gifted it with an exciting concept. Nine songs puzzles together a mystical story behind the living death classics. As a language for that we have used death and doom metal with a bit of gothic influences, orchestra and ambient sounds to match the right atmosphere!

We are thankful to WHD team for giving us an opportunity to join the family. We are sure it was the best decision so far in the band’s history. Working with you guys is just easy and pleasant! Passion For Sorrow is looking forward to our upcoming future together!”

 

Worm stated: “The first time I met these guys I had a great feeling … That feeling that you enjoy when you look in someone’s eyes and you understand that you can trust deeply that person. Passion For Sorrow are pure, they really believe in what they are doing and the whole band works so hard. As a label we tend to push our artists to their limits and that’s what we have done with them. They have proven themselves to be ready for an album release on the battle field so here we go, finally, with the announcement of their signing with our label! Please check their awesome music and concept out and spread their name specially if you believe that music should be played with the most heartfelt motivation…Just like Passion For Sorrow do.”

Stay tuned as the cd release will be announced soon!

 

The album’s release party is scheduled for September the 20th in Prague at Fall Metal Attack.
