Groovin’ & Slammin’: Dethrone The Sovereign Holds Back Nothing In New Drum Playthrough

(April 9th, 2018) – The progressive technical deathcore heathens in Dethrone The Sovereign are putting the name “Harbingers of Pestilence” on the map in their brand new playthrough of their 2017 album’s title track. Composed of a series of quick shots of unbelievable footwork and intense brasswork, the video showcases drummer Derrik Schroeder’s technical prowess. Loss of limb is a near guarantee, with Schroeder’s mind-bending expertise taking form in ligament-popping physicality that is certain to impress the eyes of all who behold it.

We are stoked to present the official drum playthrough for the title track from our full length record, Harbingers of Pestilence. This is one of my favorites to play from the album- it just has a unique structure that was really fun to write to. Some of the grooves and the kick patterns near the end were a challenge for me at this tempo initially, but it ended up being one of the more technical patterns we’ve written, so learning it was worth it.” – Derrik Schroeder

In a genre where many artists become pigeonholed in their body of works, Dethrone the Sovereign chooses to defy conventions via experimentation. Based out of Salt Lake City, UT, Dethrone The Sovereign have been blessing our ears with an infectious plague composed of sharp riffage and symphonic structures since 2008, culminating in their 2017 release of Harbingers Of Pestilence. The full-length, released by Famined Records, is an exquisite masterpiece- a symposium of synchrosity and synergy in harmonious hellraising that is sincerely spell-binding.

…learning it was worth it.”
