Edmonton’s TESSITURA Release Thrashy Drum Playthrough Video For “Wounds of The Righteous” via GearGods
Released in June 2018, “Unearth The Underworld” is a 5 track EP from Edmonton, Canada’s death/thrashers, TESSITURA. Featuring five of the band’s strongest efforts to date, it takes the listener on the rollercoaster of TESSITURA’s evolution as each song drives forward into a whirlwind of themes and expressions.
Now, drummers and all fans of the band can see the masterwork of Gord Alexander as he pummels away to “Wounds of The Righteous” in his latest playthrough video via GearGods,net.
“’Wounds of the Righteous’ opens the record in a frenzy of bombastic rage, preaching against the hypocrisy of organized religion. We have captured a refined and polished take on the band that our fans see live. Capturing the essence of our live show was our primary objective in the production of the record.”
Suitable for death and thrash fans of all sorts, but especially those with an interest in Goatwhore, Revocation, and Skeletonwitch can pick up “Unearth The Underworld” or catch TESSITURA at one of their live performances (dates listed below).

Since 2008, Edmonton-based Tessitura has been taunting the Western Canadian underground metal scene with their eclectic blend of melodic death metal, progressive music, and classic thrash. They meticulously craft their unique sound by layering the edge-of-your-seat, earth-shaking guitar work of Stephan Ceña, backing it up with Leillyn McColman’s uplifting bass lines and the driving drum patterns of Gord Alexander, and refining the sound with the dual-vocal freight train of Ceña and lead vocalist Cyn Mercredi’s powerful screams and haunting growls.
Leaving behind the more technical borderline progressive style found on the first two albums, ‘Battle to Eternity’ (2010) and ‘Savage Embrace’(2013), they embrace their grittier side with ‘Unearth the Underworld’ (2018). The unmatched energy they inject into their fans can be experienced at one of their thunderous live shows or on any of their releases.
