Canada's MEDEVIL Shares New Guitar Playthrough For "Dead Before Birth"

Vancouver, Canada's Medevil unleashed their latest album “Mirror in the Darkness” this past April 7th. The record is a big step up from their debut full-length “Conductor of Storms”, with a more progressive and ambitious direction than before. The album is also a tribute to drummer Chris Malcolmson who passed away after its recording. The songs on this new album have much more variety, and a lot more to offer, which should accommodate a wider array of music tastes from metal fans or fans of music in general.

Today, the band's guitarists Gary Cordsen and Brett Gibbs are unveiling their latest playthrough video for the track "Dead Before Birth" which can be seen above.

The band adds about the album's opening track:

"Kicking things off is Dead Before Birth, a hard-hitting opening track that begins with a drum-only intro. Featuring complex arrangements, precise timings, and vicious guitar riffs. Between the many different time signatures, dense guitar layers, and menacing chorus, Dead Before Birth’s goal is to be catchy while also challenging the listener. The lyrics are kept abstract, dealing in a metaphorical sense with the feelings of depression."

Intended to be listened to in a single sitting from front to back, Medevil spent a lot of time considering the flow of the album for “Mirror in the Darkness”, from fast and energetic to dark and brooding, there is a lot of variety that will come from a fully engaged listen. Recommended for fans of Metal Church, Accept, and Baroness, listen to ​​“Mirror in the Darkness” at, and Spotify.

Eric Willmott will be singing for us at all live performances, and is expected to sing as the lead vocalist on the upcoming studio albums as well." adds the band.
