...till the dead


Rise Above Dead was formed back in 2009.
In june 2010, they unleashed without the help of any label their first EP called “Human Disintegration” on 12inches vinyl.

This 4 songs EP was a darkened blend of post hardcore, crust and sludge metal, with heavy guitars and haunting vocals that made this record sound like an electric funeral pyre.

The music was complimented by the visual darkness captured on a superlative artwork done by californian artist Justin Bartlett which already worked with Sunn O))), Trap Them, The Secret,
“Human Disintegration” got a lot of good feedbacks from the press and it was distributed worldwide with the help of the several indipendent labels such as Denovali Records (DE), MusicFearSatan (FR), Halo Of Flies (USA), Shove records (IT). After the release of “Human Disintegration”, Rise Above Dead played lots of shows in support of the record and got the chance to share the stage with several international acts such as Kylesa, Eyehategod, Russian Circles, Voivod Tombs, Darkest hour, Black Breath, Celeste, Envy Napalm Death and more.

In February 2012 the band started the recording of their first full lenght album called “Stellar Filth” together with sound engineer Lorenzo Stecconi, best known for being the man behind the mixer on the latest albums from Lento (Denovali) and Ufomammut (Neurot Records). It was released on june 2012 by Moment Of Collapse Records (DE), Shove Records (IT) , Forever True Records (IT)
“Stellar Filth” consists of 7 new songs from Rise Above Dead where down-tempo sludge meets post/metal and psychedelia, for an amount of 48 minutes of music.


The band is constantly working hard to promote their debut full length album.
The record got many positive reviews from the international press and it has often been compared to the early works of the bands isis, Cult Of Luna and Neurosis.
