Portugal’s Downfall Of Mankind are a modern metal powerhouse that incorporates a myriad of eclectic influences to create a propulsive metallic beast. Co-produced by Matthew Kiichi Heafy (Trivium), their highly anticipated new album Purgatory is out today, which features the brand new single, 'Weard Ov Hell'. This song perfectly showcases the new, unique dynamics added into their song-writing, which results in an aggressive, yet memorable banger.

Matthew Kiichi Heafy commented: "Downfall Of Mankind will be juggernauts of the heavy music scene in no time."

Downfall Of Mankind commented: “Our new single, ‘Weard ov Hell,’ was a concept created in order to bridge the gap between our realm and purgatory. From a musical perspective, we collectively (with our co-producer Matt Heafy) decided to explore as much as we could when it comes to the elements used on the track itself.

"We already consider our music very interesting and diverse, but we wanted to push ourselves even more this time. That’s how it should be. We are all very creative and have wide varieties of influences. The writing process of this new record also had a very strong influence from Matthew Heafy, who brought different elements to the table, such as incorporating different instruments from around the world. It really brought a different essence into the song-writing process.

“Our sound is always evolving and we strive to keep it diverse and exciting. We have groove, lots of melody, heavy breakdowns, gnarly vocals, complex song structures, orchestral sections, etc. What sets us apart from the rest is the fact that we are able to take that bevy of influences and make it absolutely beautiful and unique, without being overwhelming. There’s a moment for everything, so it’s not an amalgamation of things. Think of it as a 10K puzzle. Scrambled it might not make sense, but when you assemble everything and see the picture as it is intended, it’s just amazing and satisfying. We’re not reinventing the genre, but we certainly think we offer something different and our sound will resonate across the world!"
