Finally, after putting on iron and fire at the local clubs in Denmark, melodic death/thrash
metal band AVARICE is ready to release their highly
anticipated self-titled debut album in 2023. The record includes ten hard-hitting tracks that
are themed around the antiquity’s mythological tales of punishment and extreme greed -
hence the band and album name 'Avarice'.
For the recording and production of the album, the band teamed up with the successful
Danish producer Chris Kreutzfeldt (CABAL, Ghost Iris and Møl - just to name a few). The
record pins down in a perfect manner the status of Avarice as a front-runner of the oldschool death/thrash sound of the 2000s - however, with a new and powerful take on the
genre. The album captures Avarice’s brutal, intense and raw live energy and takes inspiration
from pioneers such as Slayer, Sepultura, HateSphere and Power Trip.
Avarice was formed by a bunch of teenagers in 2007, the same year in which the collective
also won the Aarhus Metal Contest and played shows and festivals with bands such as
Kreator, Soilwork, Volbeat, Mnemic, Dawn of Demise and Mercenary. After laying low for
several years, Avarice was restarted in 2021, in which year the EP 'Reborn in Blood' was
released. The EP was amazingly well received by fans as well as reviewers, which led them
on their way to UPRISING! Records.
