Danish metal combo, RISING, has reformed with a new full-time studio and live lineup, and will return to the scene in 2015 with new live performances and the recording of their third LP.

Since the band’s formation in 2008 and the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2009, RISING has been an incredibly promising and uncompromising act on the metal scene, both locally and internationally. After two DIY EPs, the band displayed their relentless, crushing sound, fierce musicianship and a strong sense for melody and songwriting on two full-length albums, To Solemn Ash (2011) and Abominor (2013).

RISING backed the initial EPs and the debut album with several tours in Denmark and mainland Europe, along with festival appearances such as Roskilde, Copenhell and Hultsfred. Yet, as momentum was building, so was also tension within the band and just after the recording of Abominor, the trio disbanded, leaving the future of RISING and the new album uncertain. Abominor subsequently saw its release on guitarist Jacob Krogholt’s newly founded label Indisciplinarian, but no shows we’re played in connection with the release.

Unwillingly seeing the band dissolved, main composer Krogholt quickly teamed up with original drummer Martin Niemann, a member between 2008 and 2010, with the intention of carrying on the band, if the original chemistry of the two founding members remained intact. The initial jams in the fall of 2013 proved that the spark was indeed present and over the next year and a half the duo wrote a wide variety of material, which was to be the backbone of the next album. Along the way, several musicians were tried out, in December 2014 new members started to enter the band. Now, after two years of writing, demoing and trying out new musicians for the band, the new RISING lineup is finally complete.

RISING has written eleven new songs planned for the band’s third album, which is to be recorded in August with producer Jacob Bredahl (By The Patient, The Kandidate, etc.) at his Dead Rat Studios in Aarhus, Denmark. The album will be mixed by notable American metal producer Sanford Parker (Woven Hand, Minsk, Indian, etc.) and mastered by the Brad Boatright (Sleep, Nails, Beastmilk) at Audiosiege.

The new material is undeniably RISING‘s core sound, filled with the crushing heaviness and melodic sensibilities inherited in Jacob Krogholt’s riffing and songwriting fiercely pushed onwards by Martin Niemann’s aggressive and dynamic drumming, yet fresh sonic elements are introduced by the new members of the band. Firstly, the most notable change to the sound is new lead singer Morten Grønnegaard and his melodic, yet still raw and powerful approach, handing the band and the forthcoming album a broader appeal and a more diverse expression. Carl Peter’s entrance as guitarist marks an expansion of the RISING sound, adding strength, more textures and classic twin guitar work, and along with Bjarke Lassen’s organic and heavy bass work, RISING of today is a band with an intact crushing energy, yet with bigger variation and dynamics.

RISING‘s as-yet-untitled third album is expected to be released in the spring of 2016, backed by touring in Denmark and abroad. As for now, the band is hard at work finalizing the album pre-production, and is planning a few Danish comeback shows in November after the album recordings, which will mark the first live appearances from the band in two-and-a-half years.

To Solemn Ash LP Streaming In Its Entirety

Danish Sludge Metallers RISING are preparing for a tour across Ireland and Northern Ireland, on their way to tackle festivals in Denmark and Sweden later this month.

Set to embark on June 6th, RISING will storm four Irish cities before their performances at Copenhell Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark with the likes of Slayer, Mastodon, Anthrax, Immortal, Meshuggah and tons more, followed immediately by Hultsfred Festival in Hultsfred, Sweden with an eclectic lineup including The Cure, The Stone Roses, The XX, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators and countless others.

The crushing trio will present material from their acclaimed To Solemn Ash LP, released via Exile on Mainstream in Europe in late 2011 and on North American soil in January of this year. Recorded with producer Jakob Reichert Nielsen (Lack, Trust, Obstacles, etc.), the ten-track beast To Solemn Ash is fueled by a rigorous energy, replete with monstrous, hook-laden riffs, savage vocals and organic analog tones. RISING present their infectious sounds with an urgency and originality that warrants repeated listens and most definitely needs to be witnessed live!

Stream To Solemn Ash in its entirety now via the Exile On Mainstream website.
