OUTER HEAVEN + Invisible Oranges

Invisible Oranges has premiered the newest Outer Heaven track, "That Which Was Taken," off the band's Melotov Records debut, Diabolus Vobiscum. 

Stream the track, here.

Diabolus Vobiscum comes out on Melotov on February 10th, kicking off the year for the label and furthering the hot streak that included new releases in 2014 by ACxDC, Tiger Flowers, Seizures, and more.

Outer Heaven rocks a totally evil doom-death sound that finds a home within today's hardcore scene thanks to its rock-solid rhythms and ability to elicit maximum smiles/violence from any crowd. Unearthly vocals, mournful doom riffs, and caveman death-grooves add up to something wonderful. As Invisible Oranges' Kelly Kettering writes, "Outer Heaven have managed to mesh the genres in a sparse yet doomy way..."

Decibel Magazine recently compared the young Pennsylvanians to bands like Incantation and Coffins and premiered another track off the upcoming EP, here.

"While hardcore and thrash often have a symbiotic relationship, it isn't as often that you see death metal align itself with its breakdown companions. However, Outer Heaven have managed to mesh the genres in a sparse yet doomy way that keeps the EP interesting..."
–Invisible Oranges

"Similarities to Mitochondrian and Decibel favorites Incantation. These are promising comparisons for extreme metal... It's new school death metal with an old school feel without the shelf dust."
–Decibel

"Outer Heaven let nuances of their influences bleed into their dirty death concoction... Mixing old school death metal with doom, hardcore, and a pinch of black metal makes for an interesting (and heavy) sound..."
–American Aftermath
