The four members of local outfit Immortal Bird have their fingers in a lot of pies. Front woman Rae Amitay can often be heard playing drums for Eight Bells, Castle, and the very underrated Thrawsunblat, while others spend time in Roman Ring, Air Raid, and Wilderun. That’s a diverse list, and Immortal Bird have never been easy to pin down either—sure, you could say “crusty blackened deathgrind,” but what does that really mean? In the case of last year’s debut full-length Empress/Abscess (Broken Limbs), it means the ability to move from surprisingly anthemic punk-inflected numbers like “The Sycophant” into droney ten-minute morasses of despair like “And Send Fire.” According to a recent interview with Metal Insider, guitarist Evan Berry will be less involved in songwriting moving forward, instead focusing more on his folk-metal outfit Wilderun. The new material should reflect that along with the year the band has spent honing its sound during a grueling schedule of tours and festivals that’s frankly impressive.
