No Clean Singing Premieres New Affliction Gate (France) Track

One of the most anticipated releases from Transcending Obscurity, that of the French death metal band Affliction Gate, is called 'Dying Alone' and is scheduled for release on January 5th, 2016. No Clean Singing from US has just premiered the first song which is titled "Devising Our Own Chains". It is STREAMING HERE

The response so far has been overwhelming. The Killchain (UK) wrote this about 'Dying Alone' - "Affliction Gate are likely to have one of 2016’s best death metal EPs. I know that may seem premature, but it’ll take a lot to outmatch ‘Dying Alone’."

Metal Altar gave it a very high rating of 9/10 and mentioned this in its review -"Unleashed, Paradise Lost, Bolt Thrower… That’s a lot of name-dropping, isn’t it? It’s all well-deserved, though, as Affliction Gate meld elements from three of those very different bands together into a damn fine listening experience."

The masters of pain-evoking death metal are back with a new epic. This is the band's most evolved output by far, delving into deeply stirring, poignant leads, dark shades of melancholy, while remaining stoic and powerful, as one should, in their outer demeanor. The vocalist Herostratos narrates the truth of life with a bleeding voice, for all to hear and learn, as the music enacts its harsh dramatization. For ultimately, you are accountable for your own sins and you have to die yourself, alone, to enter either heaven or hell. 'Dying Alone' is an epoch in death metal circa 2016, one that witnesses a convergence of tangible, real life emotions, portraying once again and more elaborately, extreme music with pure anguish, struggle and bitter truth.

Musically, this can be likened to GruesomeDeathAsphyxHail of BulletsBolt Thrower,UnleashedMercyless and Obituary.
