DESPITE EXILE Official Bio
One of the fastest growing bands in 2012, Italy’s DESPITE EXILE continues to impress with their unique brand of progressive deathcore. After the fast success of their 2011 debut, Scarlet Reverie, the band wasted no time to get back in the studio to create the absolutely stunning release, Re-Evolve!
While it’s quite a tease for only being a 3 song EP, each respective song packs its own mega punch. The lead track “Oscillate” was exclusively premiered via Got-Djent.com, and received much praise for DESPITE EXILE’s unique onslaught of progressive/technical metal with memorable melodies. The 2nd track, “Perfection Neutralized”, saw its exclusive debut in form of a music video via BlankTV, which has already seen 21,000+ views and counting. Some dub the video as the best BlankTV upload in months. Last but not least is the album closer “Mechanical”, which is one of the most melodic songs the band has written, but don’t let the prettiness fool you as there are still plenty of razor sharp riffs, crushing breakdowns, and blast beats galore. Re-Evolve surely shows DESPITE EXILE up there with the big dogs.
DESPITE EXILE are keeping their momentum at high, and expect these Italians to be one of the big name stories of 2012 and beyond…
