NEWS: Beyond Extinction announce deluxe version of “Nothing More Wretched”!

When it reaches its first anniversary on 29th March 2024, “Nothing More Wretched” by Essex Death Metallers Beyond Extinction will be given the honour of a deluxe edition release as a box set. Included in the bundle are not one but two new singles, the first of which has premiered with the news and is already a staple of the bands live set. Featuring a guest vocal appearance from Dilan Alves of Harbinger fame, “Reverse Life Support” was engineered, mixed and mastered by Charlie Wilson at Monolith Studios. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s conjoined to a music video shot and edited by Josh Wagner at Gallow Wood Studio with one more single set to arrive before the box set does. Pre-orders are available here.

On the new single, vocalist Jasper Harmer comments: Collaborating with two big-hitters in UK heavy music – Dilan Alves of Harbinger for a feature and Charlie Wilson at Monolith Studios for production – we are very excited to release the first of two very raw and visceral death metal tracks as part of the Nothing More Wretched anniversary edition – celebrating one year of our most successful release to date. ‘Reverse Life Support’ allows the unrelenting weight of the band’s double-drop-D tuning to blend with an intensity reminiscent of Swedish-chainsaw style death metal. ‘Reverse Life Support’s themes call upon the memories of a hospitalisation in 2022 caused by a sudden and intense allergic reaction to medicine, only weeks before heading out on the band’s first ever UK tour. Notably, this is our first release since founding guitarist Zach Scott passed away, we are grateful to be releasing music which benefited from his influence and writing and bringing him along with us.”

On the long-time coming collaboration, Harbinger vocalist Dilan Alves states: Very stoked that Jasper and the boys let me put my stamp on such a gruesome track, and I can imagine the carnage when we get to share the stage for this tune. I am very proud of these guys and have a lot of faith that this is just the beginning for them.”

Beyond Extinction also recently announced a poignant tribute show to their late guitarist, Zach Scott, who passed away in August 2023. Raising awareness for the alarming rate of male suicide in the UK, this heartfelt event takes place on 17th August 2024 at Camden Underworld in the heart of London and sees a line-up consisting of bands that Zach toured and worked closely with over the years join the band on stage:
