UK death/doom band The Drowning are playing crushing death/doom metal with the melodies and structure intact. Their upcoming full length promises to be the best one of their career and fans of both death and doom metal should be all over it. It’s rare to see a band straddle it without compromising on either the heaviness or the atmosphere. They’re in good company alongside other death/doom bands such as Officium Triste, Illimitable Dolor, Esogenesi, Towards Atlantis Lights, Et Moriemur, etc.

Label owner Kunal Choksi states, “I’m thrilled to come across yet another talented UK band in The Drowning. They’ve been around for a while and it’s time they get the attention that they deserve. Their brand of hard-hitting death/doom metal is of the kind that stays with you long after the album is over and I’m excited to work with them. The UK scene has been kind to our label and here’s hoping this proves to be a fine experience for everyone involved. Special thanks to Chris Kee for letting me on to this band and sorting things out.”

The Drowning members comment, “2018 has been an exciting time in The Drowning camp. It has seen the completion of our fifth full length album, which we worked on long and hard to get the best from the new material. We believe it’s our best work to date and signing to the mighty Transcending Obscurity Records puts our work into the hands of one of the best new labels around. They’ve been signing major artists from around the world and this is a massive step for The Drowning. We are very, very proud to be a part of Transcending Obscurity’s incredible roster of bands.”
