Coming off their performance this past weekend at Metallion Festival in BC, Edmonton, AB’s Death Toll Rising has teamed up with MetalInjection.netfor the premiere of their new video ‘Scorched Earth Policy’ in support of their latest album ‘Infection Legacy’.
“We are beyond excited to be releasing our first ever music video! This is one of the thrashers off our most recent album, ‘Infection Legacy’ and always proved to be a fan favorite, so it was a no brainer to do this track. We were lucky enough to work with our good friend and director Lindsay Robinson on this project and he pretty much nailed everything we had in mind, it looks sick! It was great experience and we were able to have a ton of our friends out to party and be in the video, which made it all the more motivating for us. It was cold, it was late, and it was exhausting, but in the end completely worth every minute!” comments guitarist Drew Copland.

About: Featuring a combination of death and thrash metal, the Edmonton-based band are known to devastate their audiences with their high octane performances that has lead them to share the stage over the years with high profile names such as Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, The Haunted, and Aborted (to name a few).
Originally formed in 2003 in Stony Plain, AB, Canada, the award nominated (Metal Recording of The Year – Edmonton Music Awards 2014) Death Toll Rising have been grinding the Western Canadian metal scene steadily, gaining huge momentum over the last 3 years. New addition Tylor Dory on guitars has introduced a technical and progressive element to the band they have not had in the past. Add in the intense and relentless drumming provided by Bryan Newbury (recently recruited by Canadian prog/death powerhouse INTO ETERNITY), as well as the well-rounded rhythm provided by Drew Copland on guitar and Mike Puff on bass, and you get a monster that is only now being unleashed upon the masses with vocalist Jesse Berube topping things off with a combination of brutal death growls and Tomas Lindberg-esqe high shrieks, which will be plenty noticeable on their new album ‘Infection Legacy’.

Infection Legacy – #8 on Top 20 of 2013 Albums – Metal Made In Canada
“Some very good things are happening in Western Canadian metal these days, and Edmonton’s Death Toll Rising have come through with a very impressive second album. While rooted in death metal, they occasionally dip into thrash groove and progressive metal technicality, which you don’t see very often, and which gives the music a good, dynamic quality. Savage one minute, intricate the next, the quality on this record is well above your average self-released album, a true diamond in the rough. Don’t miss out on it.” DeciBlog / Decibel Magazine
“A Canadian powerhouse that have been perfecting their destructive arts for a decade now. ‘Infection Legacy’ demonstrates all the poise and proficiency you’d expect from such an experienced outfit, with each song being a perfectly constructed weapon of mass destruction. Death and thrash metal have welded into nine fearsome tracks, peppered with some superb guitar-work and devastating drumming throughout. ‘Scorched Earth Policy’ sums up all the band’s attributes nicely, but there are no weaknesses to be found anywhere. Cannibal Corpse and Slayer blended with individual vision and delivered with ruthless precision.’ – Zero Tolerance Magazine
“The production is expectedly clean and punishing, with battering double kick running like a stampede through the album, which kicks off with the title track. The guitar sound is a razor-sharp, jagged to the point of causing aural lacerations, and my thoughts shifted quite quickly to the likes of US act Revocation, with a focus on bouncing riffs and thundering melodies. ‘Scorched Earth Policy’ is a striking riff fest, with hook after hook inundating the listener like a boulder avalanche, making this a very guitar friendly album for those preferring multiple riffs, though it is not a tech death metal release by any means. ‘Crack Open A Cold One’ has scorching lead that fits so snugly into the song dynamics, you hardly notice, as this song, and the album as a whole, flows so smoothly, despite being heavier than the gravity pull of black hole.” – Powerplay Magazine
“I love this album, it is forty-five minutes of full tilt death/thrash excitement.” 5/5 – Metal Talk
“Infection Legacy sticks out from the pack for its meticulous riffing, well crafted hooks, and elements of thrash and progressive metal.” – Edmonton Sun
“Charging riffs, intense growling vocals, chaotic soloing and hard-hitting blast beats. Seems it’s all here. And the legends that came before them would be proud. Sounds like: Devin Townsend hitting up a jam with the late, great Chuck Schuldiner. ” – Scott Jones – Alan Cross : Professional Music Geek: A Journal of Musical Things
“Death Toll Rising is the lone death metal album making the cut, displaying a strong grasp of what the brutal brothers enjoy without the widdly fluff or boring bork-downs.” – Invisible Oranges
