Within Destruction Surprise Release ‘Elden Ring’-Inspired Mini-Album “Rebirth”


Slovenian nü-deathcore band Within Destruction have surprise released a new mini-album/EP titled “Rebirth“. That effort consists of six songs and boasts guest appearances from Signs Of The Swarm‘s David Simonich and Distant‘s Alan Grnja.

Speaking of how the effort came to be, the band’s drummer Luka Vezzosi commented:

“We had free time to do sort of a pet project for ourselves with no set deadlines or goals. We were basically just having fun with this release. There’s only a handful of deathcore bands that are doing something unique at the moment and we felt like it’s the perfect timing for our return to show everyone we still got it.”

Guitarist Howard Fang added:

“The main focus was on bringing back an era of the band that was raw, aggressive, and in your face. The ‘Void’ and ‘Deathwish’ eras were a significant chapter in the band’s history and we wanted to do a throwback with a new perspective and approach. We drew heavily from our influences and wrote the mini album with the intent of bringing the OG slamcore excitement and heaviness.”

The outing draws inspiration lyrically from the hit action role-playing video game ‘Elden Ring“, with each song being inspired by the game’s antagonists. Vocalist Rok Pristov explained, “I was fascinated by the game’s atmosphere, character, design and the incredible depths of its storytelling.”
