“I don’t know what’s with Quebec and great quality Technical Death Metal but we have another winner on our hands…. I needed to catch my breath because it was some pretty relentless blast beast and technical wizardry. I was glad to have a bit of a break before their unleashed some more crushing songs… they really hit a home run with this album and I wish them unrivaled success in the coming future.”

“They’re straight up death metal with no rules or gimmicks. They’re super groovy, great vocals you can understand, and dirty riffs with lots of tremolo mixed in for good measure.”

THE FLAYING, death metal from Quebec City, Canada will be unleashing their second album “Angry, Undead” on March 22, 2019, via PRC Music. Working with Christian Donaldson (Cryptopsy) at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the band has manifested pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date.
Teaming up with NoCleanSinging, the band is ready to skin and skew their fans alive with the full stream of ‘Angry, Undead’ at the following link: https://www.nocleansinging.com/2019/03/21/an-ncs-album-premiere-and-a-review-the-flaying-angry-undead/
The concept of “Angry, Undead” is an intricate one with each of the eight songs falling under a distinct axis: Chaos (social manifestations); Madness (individual manifestations); and Void (existential manifestations). It is brutal, instinctive, unique, and wicked, and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Archspire, Suffocation, and Deicide.
The band explains the release:
“Like our previous release ‘Unhope’ and probably the next albums as well, ‘Angry, Undead’ has its own concept and each song is related to each other by a main theme, which can be expressed as a symbol of global decay in the “undead”. Each song is a representative of this idea and which follows three main points :
Chaos Axis (social manifestations)
– Disloqué (loss, confusion, disruption, despair)
– Place du Parvis (fail of authorities, racism/religion, indifference, deprivation)
– Genuflect (alienation, class war/domination)
Madness Axis (individual manifestations)
– Angry, Unleashed (confinement, psychopathy, delirium/loss of self)
– Angry, Undead (confinement, rage)
Void Axis (existential manifestations)
– Elegy of Emptiness (void in expectations)
– Valse du Scorpion (emotional devastation)”

And it all began with the rope dancer….
Formed in July 2010, The Flaying is a death metal band based in Quebec City, Canada that focuses on fluid melodic construction of songs featuring brutal sections which are further complemented by vocals with both low end growls and hateful high pitches.
Since their first release Unhope (2014), Seb, Did, Wil and Mike are forging ahead in order to adopt a more brutal approach: adding new grooves, a greater velocity, and creating a wider ambiance as well as keeping breakdowns and progressive parts with counterpoints constructing a main theme of anger and a general hate of humanity.
Soldiering on with the philosophy of one band, four individuals, four personalities to collide, the writing process is a team effort initially seeing the band collaborate on riffs and groove ideas, adding a flourish of low-end colors, and blending the whole thing together with flying vocals that create a manifest of pure mayhem. This product of this steadfast diablerie will be realized on March 22, 2019, when the second album “Angry, Undead” is unleashed on PRC Music.

“Solid and thoroughly enjoyable, The Flaying make a name for themselves on their second album. Angry, Undead is never at a loss for momentum and rage, and still manages to tickle your ears with its massive grooves and musical prowess.” – Dead Rhetoric
“It is a savage, brutish and barbaric death metal album emphasized by the nasty groove of Elegy of Emptiness and the booming Angry, Unleashed. A fine addition to any death metal fan’s collection.” – Games, Brrrains & A Head-Banging Life
Angry, Undead est satisfaisant car des breakdowns ont été insérés et les compositions sont loin d’être monotones. Honnêtement, toutes les fois que l’album se conclue je le réécoute car je n’arrive pas à m’en lasser.
