Tithe – Penance
Emerging from the rain-soaked grey of Portland, Oregon, TITHE is leaving its mark of pummeling auditory exploration. Drawing influence from all over the musical spectrum, TITHE offers a truly unique blend of extreme metal. The trio comes together with their debut full-length album "Penance" to explore the psychedelic experience and the depravity of human nature. Strange and unorthodox but unapologetically so, TITHE create warped dirges of death metal deviated further by stabs of raw grindcore and undertones of swampy sludge/doom. Often gloomy and ambiguous, there's nevertheless a haunting undercurrent of stifled violence across all tracks of the band's new album, smothering the listener with density and spaciousness simultaneously. Featuring Matt Eiseman on guitar, Alex Huddleston on bass and Kevin Swartz on drums, TITHE embarks on a new level of extreme metal while never losing their old school-inspired roots. This band is a force to be reckoned with on the metal circuit and shows no signs of holding back.
