Wormholedeath have announced 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
- My Inspiration
- World At The Abyss
- The Day Death Left The Grave
- Rotting Immortality
It’s not been that long since Passion For Sorrow started invading Prague’s underground music clubs, making local metal fans surprised by its contrasting 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 they 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 album’s release party is scheduled for September the 20th in Prague at Fall Metal Attack.
