RELEASE THE RIVER is a blackened death metal power trio founded late 2019 hailing from Leiden, The Netherlands. Devastating grooves and blasting riffs pave the way for a new era of brutality, where psychedelic atmospheres meet powerful metal. The three core members of the dismantled band Illusionless have risen from the ashes to continue the path to create Leiden’s finest metal.
Early 2022 saw the unveiling of Spirit Corrupt, the first EP of RELEASE THE RIVER. Spirit Corrupt takes the listener on a journey past ruins, cults, history and dark forests in the search of mankind’s corruptive nature.
The band’s sound is characterized by the fusing of deep diving groove riffs with the atmospheric tendencies of black metal. Drenched with a healthy dose of death metal RELEASE THE RIVER seeks to create intense heavy music with hidden meaning.
