Dying Wish

Symptoms Of Survival: Vinyl LP


Release Date: 3 November, 2023

DYING WISH is the unrelenting and unforgiving sound of struggle, an extreme metallic hardcore band infused with a punk spirit. With little more than a demo and a split 7” to their name, the Portland, Oregon outfit earned a Best International Band nomination at the UK’s Heavy Music Awards. Fragments of a Bitter Memory, their full-length debut on SharpTone, lived up to the hype.
The blistering hardcore band’s passionate music fuses the New Wave of American Heavy Metal with chaotic punk dissonance. The diverse group forged a musical and activist identity in the DIY scene. Even as they’ve graduated to bigger tours with more prominent metalcore bands, they continue to uphold those ethics, espousing the values of equality, justice, and self-determination.
The musical weapon brandished by guitarists Pedro Carrillo and Sam Reynolds, bassist and powerhouse drummer Jeff Yambra laid beneath Emma Boster’s distinctive and diverse vocals.
On the strength of that furious demo’s maelstrom of Hatebreed, Bleeding Through, and early Converge-inspired riffage, coupled with a split EP with Canada’s Serration, DYING WISH secured a coveted spot inBrooklyn Vegan’s Metal Albums We’re Anticipating.
Produced, mixed, and mastered by Randy LeBoeuf (The Acacia Strain, Kublai Khan, Sentinels),Symptoms of Survival is 11 songs of savage, pummeling assault against personal trauma and society at large. The album is focused, explosive, and powerful.
DYING WISH aligns with the continuing battle for liberation, encompassing the issues affecting BIPOC, the environment, and more intersectional causes while dealing in personal struggle and trauma in equal measure. They make music aimed at unity but without compromise.
Revolution and liberation, in spirit and song, is the heart of DYING WISH.
