On February 10th, 2023, Distant, the multinational Down-Tempo/Deathcore band from Rotterdam in The Netherlands and the Slovak Republic will release their third full-length album, Heritage, via Century Media Records. It will arrive in various vinyl variants as well as digitally.
Previously released album tracks include “Exofilth” and “Human Scum” and a new single has also been released, “Orphan Of Blight”. The video for “Orphan Of Blight”, directed by Bart Sperling (Rock Steady Visual) has also been revealed.
Distant comments on the new track:
If there ever was to be a song that encapsulates everything Distant is, then it’s ‘Orphan of Blight’ from our upcoming album, ‘Heritage‘. With our signature mix of theatrical and energetic delivery, ‘Orphan of Blight’ also includes an opera singer as the wonderful icing on a devastating deathcore cake!
Heritage is Distant’s Century Media debut and the album continues on the “thematic, sci-fi-leaning lyrical cycle” which the band transposed to the page with vocalist Alan Grnja’s and bassist Elmer Maurits’ first novel, The Rise of Tyrannotophia.
