Alienated Despair


International grindcore / death metal monsters IMPLORE have been around since 2013. They've put out two albums, "Depopulation" (2015) and their Century Media debut "Subjugate" (2017), and a number of singles and split releases. Just like its members are spread all across Europe, never really settling down anywhere, IMPLORE have literally played a thousand shows all over the globe, a good number of which they've booked themselves - always staying true to the DIY spirit inherent in the underground niches of extreme metal and hardcore punk, which goes hand in hand with their unapologetic political and socio-critical direction. Germany-based frontman and only remaining founding member Gabriel "Gabbo" Dubko states: "The lyrics are about issues caused by modern society. Living life enslaved to a system and a low salary knowing that it's not taking us anywhere and time is passing expecting or hoping things will get better one day, but everything's just getting worse.This makes us anxious, dependent, drug addicts, fearful and lonesome." And he adds: "Even though this is a socio-political topic as on the previous albums, this one is focused on a first person view, a 'protagonist' and makes it in a way more personal cause I gave more reflection from my thoughts and some philosophers. It's about the effect on us, rather than about the perpetrator"After going through another line-up change before the recording sessions to their upcoming third studio album "Alienated Despair" they are back even stronger and angrier than before, never giving the listener time to recover from the constant onslaught of heavy death metal riffage, grinding blasts, punkish d-beat attacks and inhuman breakdowns. Their raw energy and in-your-face attitude coupled with an incontestably skillful execution will appeal to both the die-hard fans of old school death metal and grindcore like Entombed, Carcass or Napalm Death as well as appreciators of contemporary extreme metal and hardcore bands like Converge, Trap Them or Full Of Hell."This album wa
