Edmonton-based progressive death thrash metal band Tessitura have been livening up the Western Canadian underground metal scene since 2008. They released their most recent EP Unearth the Underworld in June of last year, and now you can see drummer Gord Alexander in all his glory as he drums his way through “Wounds of The Righteous” in this exclusive playthrough video, only right here, on Gear Gods!
If you’re a fan of bands like Revocation and Skeletonwitch, these guys are definitely gonna be up your alley. With the trashy rhythms that Gord lays down in this track, it’s clear to see that these dudes know what’s up when it comes to writing this kind of music.
In the words of the band:
“Wounds of the Righteous’ opens the record in a frenzy of bombastic rage, preaching against the hypocrisy of organized religion. We have captured a refined and polished take on the band that our fans see live. Capturing the essence of our live show was our primary objective in the production of the record.”
