In their relatively short existence, a lot has happened to Danish metal outfit Rising. The Copenhagen act self-released an EP and 7″ single in 2009 and 2010 respectively, whose material would pave the way for their monolithic 2011 full-length debut, To Solemn Ash. The band’s crushing blend of sludge, doom and old school metal stylings would be refined even further on their bludgeoning sophomore effort, Abominor. Rising was beginning to genuinely sound like a force to be reckoned with, yet the band unfortunately dissolved shortly after recording that record. But the dissolution was only temporary as guitarist and main composer Jacob Krogholt quickly reassembled the band with new players. Now with a revamped lineup, Rising returns in 2016 fresh as ever with Oceans Into Their Graves. It would seem that the tumultuous times the band experienced only strengthened their craft and resulted in what is, arguably, their best work to date.
