Beaten To Death’s upcoming album “Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis” embodies their relentless pursuit of sonic innovation and unapologetic rebellion, proving that age is no barrier to musical mayhem.

Norwegian outfit Beaten To Death is ready to unleash their latest auditory onslaught with the upcoming release of "Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis." Aging, they claim, has not softened their edge; if anything, it's sharpened it. The band's sixth full-length album, set for release on May 31st via Mas-Kina Recordings, showcases their signature blend of grindcore aggression and melodic discord with unabashed ferocity.

Since bursting onto the grindcore scene in 2011, Beaten To Death has defied genre expectations and embraced creative chaos. From their debut "Xes and Strokes" to the acclaimed "Last Maar, Ik Verhuis Naar Het Bos," the band has consistently challenged conventions and gleefully dismantled trends. "Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis" is no exception, delivering a relentless barrage of sonic mayhem that refuses to conform.

Recorded live and mixed by guitarist Tommy Hjelm, the album's expressive artwork by William Hay sets the stage for a riotous display of musical mischief. Lead single "My Hair Will Be Long Until Death" offers a taste of the album's irreverent energy, inviting listeners on a rampage of corrosive fury and expectation-shattering adventure.

With vocalist Anders Bakke at the helm, supported by Martin Rygge and Tommy Hjelm on guitars, Mika Martinussen on bass, and Christian “Bartender” Svendsen on drums, Beaten To Death proves that age is no barrier to sonic savagery. "Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis" is a testament to their unyielding commitment to pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo.

In a genre often associated with youthful rebellion, Beaten To Death stands as a defiant reminder that maturity and creativity are not mutually exclusive. With their latest offering, they continue to redefine what it means to be a grindcore band in the 21st century, injecting a much-needed dose of chaos and vitality into the scene.

As time marches on, Beaten To Death finds themselves embracing the passage of years not as a hindrance, but as a wellspring of creativity. Their latest album, "Sunrise Over Rigor Mortis," stands as evidence of their unyielding passion for pushing musical boundaries and defying expectations.
