California metal crew, Spite, delighted their ever-growing, dedicated following last month when they announced their third full-length The Root of All Evil would be released this Fall. Today, the band further stoked the flames of anticipation with the revelation of their third single “The Offering” alongside an accompanying video. Spite takes another step over the top with their most in your face track yet. The band continues to push the boundaries of metal by using influences of all heavy genres to create a sound like no other. A combination of anger and horror, embrace, “The Offering.” It’s that willingness to navigate and master the dark and unknown that has fans on guard as they await the October 4th release of The Root of All Evil. The band will also be hitting the road with Chelsea Grin and The Acacia Strain this fall in support of the new album. You can stream the new single “The Offering” and pre-order the record here.
Having established themselves as one of the angriest bands in the scene, Spite attract outsiders together by way of a hypnotic, heavy vengeance bordering on thrash intricacy and deathcore intimacy. As a result, the Northern California quintet—Darius Tehrani [vocals], Lucas Garirrigues [guitar], Alex Tehrani [guitar], Ben Bamford [bass], and Cody Fuentes [drums]—engender a level of devout fandom known as the “Spite Cult” that can only be categorized in canonical terms. The group’s willingness to push the envelope quietly transformed them into one of modern heavy music’s most intense forces without losing any of the intricacies that make their output so appealing. Following 2016’s self-titled debut Spite, the band registered shockwaves on the Richter Scale with Nothing is Beautiful a year later. Tallying over 5 million-plus cumulative on-demand streams, “Kill or Be Killed” notably racked up over 1 million Spotify streams and over 1 million YouTube views. The band destroyed stages coast-to-coast alongside everyone from Dying Fetus, Attila and Oceano to Carnifex, Whitechapel, and Winds of Plague. Along the way, four-piece prepared their most incisive statement to date in the form of their third full-length, The Root of All Evil.
