Harvested have a heavy death metal debut EP coming out and to showcase the thunder that drives them, they are releasing a drum playthrough video of the single “Bereavement”. The track involves themes of extreme depression and suicidal tendencies, pummeled into you with triplets, blast beats, and chromatic runs, which lead up to an enigmatic solo and razor-sharp tremolo picking that end with slamming chugs. The band shares their thoughts on the song:

“It is one of our strongest songs. It’s heavy and filled with dark lyrics that really fit the vibe of the song. It’s the last song we wrote to finish off the 5 track release and it’s our most mature song. It also more closely resembles our newer unreleased songs. We chose bereavement as one of our drum play through videos for it highlights different aspects of Jacob’s skills. Filled with blast beats and double bass, it’s got everything an extreme metal drummer would want.”

Harvested bring lots of energy and pay homage to the classics, which they make clear in their videos. They rely on their performance and delivery rather than on cutting-edge technology. They don’t perform digitally or with backing tracks/IEM, just lots of windmilling and the aggression delivered by their frontman that will surely frighten the audience.

Inspired by so many different styles of metal from old school death metal to black metal to slam, they combine all the elements into one cohesive unit. They are trying to keep that old school death metal vibe alive to keep the old school fans excited while utilizing and embracing new genres, styles, and production that will capture the ears of the newer generations as well as open a whole new world to the old school fans.

Death metal fans from all walks of life should check out Harvested, especially those who enjoy Suffocation, Dying Fetus, and Hate Eternal.

“Viciously Brutal, Goes well with my morning coffee” – Paul Collins

“Non-stop heaviness from start to finish. Every song has a different experience yet they all have memorable and catchy riffs that engage the listener” – Eric Morotti (Drummer of Suffocation)

“The EP is quite awesome and I’ll find myself listening over and over again! They sound like Cannibal Corpse/Dying Fetus and many more. The day Harvested has a show in Montreal you can expect to see me in the pit.” – William Biron

“Presenting Harvested: Hailing from Ottawa is one of Canada’s finest emerging death metal bands. Their debut E.P. brings that good ol’ churning feeling in your stomach like you just chugged a 40 of malt liquor and fell down a hill! Dangerous, disorienting brutal fun. The way death metal should be. If you’re into Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, and Morbid Angel or just having an all-around good time, look no further.” – Brandon Aitchison
