Metal Injection Premiere THE FLAYING’s Animated Music Video “La Valse du Scorpion”
New Album ‘Angry, Undead’ Out Now! via PRC Music
L to R: Seb – Bass, Wil – Vocals, Mike – Drums, Did – Guitar
Quebec City’s THE FLAYING recently unleashed their assaulting sophomore album “Angry, Undead” via PRC Music this past March. Working with Christian Donaldson of Cryptopsy at The Grid in Montreal, QC, the album is pure mayhem for their fastest and most brutal debauchery to date. 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.
Teaming up with MetalInjection, the band continues their brutalism with their new animated video for “La Valse du Scorpion”. The track is a brutal tech hymn that is relentless and devastating. For the video the quartet hired Dwi Nugraha from Genocide Artwork in Indonesia to do the animation with direction from the band and give life to the story of their mascot, “Ronnie The Rope Dancer”, the 5th member of the band that has been hanging upside down in venues for years and has always been representing the letter “I” in The Flaying’s logo. Now the time has come for the band to put Ronnie at the forefront and show the fans how this flayed alive anti-hero became to be… the rope dancer.

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.

“Le guitariste Didier Samson se fait déjà appeler «Maître» dans sa profession d’avocat criminaliste, mais c’est au titre de «maîtres du métal» que lui et ses trois acolytes du groupe death metal The Flaying aspirent avec leur deuxième album Angry, Undead qui paraît le 22 mars sur l’étiquette émergente PRC Music.The guitarist Didier Samson is already called “Master” in his profession of criminal lawyer, but it is under the title of “masters of the metal” that he and his three acolytes of the death metal band The Flaying aspire with their second album Angry, Undead which appears March 22 on the emerging label PRC Music.”
“True to the band’s name, the music of The Flaying will slash the skin from your face in paroxysms of blood-spraying savagery. But it does more than that. It will also suck the air from your lungs, boil the brain, and hammer your bones into fragments fine enough to blow away in the wind.” – No Clean Singing
“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
