Chicago metallers POLYPTYCH have released “Defying the Metastasis”, their 3rd full length album. The album was recorded at Bricktop Recording in Chicago, IL by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats), and was mixed/mastered by by V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress) at Woodshed Studios in Landshut, Germany. This new album comes two years after the band’s second album, “Illusorium.”
Polyptych fuses styles ranging from black metal to death and doom metal, and seeks to both challenge and absorb their listeners through layers of unique riffs and melodies. Polyptych’s debut record Panels Engraved was released in May 2012; the band was initially conceived as a studio project, however, following the recording of their sophomore record, Illusorium, Polyptych has become a more active band, playing an inaugural show in 2014 alongside Ulcerate. Polyptych has also shared the stage with touring acts such as Multilation Rites and Leprous, and Chicago local acts Sioum and Austaras.
The album is available digitally on all major outlets including, Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, Deezer and Bandcamp.
