Rural Pennsylvania death metal unit Outer Heaven will release a new EP this fall on which they cover several legendary extreme metal bands, including Death and Morbid Angel.
Featuring artwork from Matthew Stikker, the five-song outing has been titled In Tribute... and will officially be released on October 8 via Relapse Records. A full stream is available below.
The band comments: "In the very uncertain and depressing times during the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted to find a way to keep ourselves occupied as a band. With shows falling to the wayside for the foreseeable future, we decided to push our efforts into celebrating our label, Relapse Records, in their 30th year. We scoured the timeless discography of the label and chose a handful of tracks that meant alot to us, and decided to record covers of them as an offering of tribute to the label and all the fans who have supported us all this time. We also recorded an extra 5th track from outside the RR discography that we just couldn’t resist including with this release. We hope this will do the job of holding everyone over as we complete work on our 2nd full length album! Death metal forever!"
