TITHE is a Portland, Oregon based trio that constructs an unorthodox amalgamation of death metal, black metal, and grind without straying too far from the fundamentals of aggressiveness and depravity. Conceived in 2017 by vocalist/guitarist Matt Eiseman and drummer Kevin Swartz, the band spent its first years writing and releasing a self-titled EP before finding bassist Alex Huddleston at the end of 2018. This lineup went on to release the debut LP “Penance” in May 2020, which despite the challenge of releasing in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, was well-received. The album explores the themes of psychedelics, mental illness and the human condition.
TITHE’s sophomore LP “Inverse Rapture” evolves upon the themes of Penance and morphs into a more angry, raw, and disharmonious embodiment. The trio’s most incendiary material to date, “Inverse Rapture” maintains the blazing tempos TITHE is known for with dreary, lowering passages strewn throughout. Produced/mixed by Fester, mastered by Adam Gonsalves and featuring the macabre art of Abomination Hammer, “Inverse Rapture” is a complete sonic exhibition of cold-blooded savagery and anguish from beginning to end.
