Renowned Belgian progressive thrash metal band PatriarcH is proud to announce their signing with Wormholedeath for their upcoming album, “Demonic Heart,” set to be released on September 15th, 2023. After a seven-year hiatus, PatriarcH is back and ready to unleash their heaviest and most ambitious work to date. “Demonic Heart” marks the band’s triumphant return, showcasing a revitalized sound that pushes the boundaries of Thrash and Progressive Metal. With nine dynamic and powerful tracks, PatriarcH is poised to captivate both their loyal fan base and a new audience with this highly anticipated release. The decision to collaborate with Wormholedeath was an easy one for the band, as they recognized the label’s extensive network and impressive in-house expertise. PatriarcH is confident that this partnership will elevate their music to a global audience. “When we read the proposal, we were immediately impressed with the massive in-house expertise the label can offer and its extensive network. We did not hesitate for one moment to sign with them,” the band expressed. The production of “Demonic Heart” was a labor of love for PatriarcH, as they navigated the challenges posed by the worldwide pandemic. The band utilized the unexpected downtime to take full control of the album’s production, meticulously crafting their signature sound. After three years of dedicated work at the “All the Way Down” studio, PatriarcH is thrilled to present their fans with a polished and powerful sonic experience. Founded in 1983 by Freddy Mylemans, the sole original band member, PatriarcH has solidified their lineup over the years with the additions of bass player Tweeva, guitar player Stijn Claessen, drummer Luc Seeuws, and vocalist Mario Cesar. Each member brings a wealth of experience and expertise from the metal scene, resulting in a harmonious and captivating synergy that shines through on “Demonic Heart.” The band describes their sound as a “fresh breath of air, a dynamic exhilarating sound that really is our own and stands out from the crowd.” PatriarcH’s rich history dates back to its formation in February 1983 as Pariah. Due to conflicts with other groups sharing the same name, they rebranded themselves as PatriarcH in March 1988. The band signed a deal with Shark Records and released their debut album, “Prophecy,” in December 1990. Throughout the years, PatriarcH experienced lineup changes while recording demos and singles. In 2019, they welcomed Mario Cesar as their new vocalist, and together, they released a demo featuring three new songs. Despite the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, PatriarcH persevered and completed the recording of their highly anticipated album, “Demonic Heart,” which led to their partnership with Wormholedeath Records for its worldwide release.
