Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Green Bay, WI based death metallers Micawber have joined forces with Prosthetic Records for the release of their third album, Beyond The Reach of Flame. Recorded at Carp Town Studios in Two Rivers, WI by Nick Weyers and Marc Birr, Beyond The Reach of Flame is a diverse chunk of modern US death metal. Growling vocals, slamming riffs, twin harmonious guitar solos and blast beat drums are the base of all the tracks, but each cut has a sprinkling of other metal elements; sludge, black, prog and tech for example, to make Micawber stand head and shoulders above their peers. "We drew from a wider spectrum of the metal and other music that inspires us," elaborates vocalist/guitarist Leighton Thompson. "We wanted to introduce more melodic and structured qualities to our sound, while maintaining and polishing the heaviness of previous releases." Mastered by Ryan Williams (Black Dahlia Murder) was the icing on the cake for the release, as Thompson states, "Ryan topped everything off with a loud, clean and pummeling master that we could not be happier with!"
