Unsigned & Streamed: Thanatotic Desire

Posted by on May 3, 2013

Why should major label bands be the only ones who get love? Unsigned & Streamed is a column where we stream a song from an unsigned band we at Metal Insider really dig.

This week, we’re excited to bring you New Jersey’s Thanatotic Desire. Though first launching in 2007, this quartet started to gain strength following the release of their 2011 full-length debut Deathwish. That same year, Thanatotic Desire played the Summer Slaughter Tour’s stop at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. The group would go on in 2012 to win the “Headbang for the Highway” battle of the bands, earning the chance to play at Mayhem Fest’s Camden, NJ stop. Last year also saw them release the EP Silence To Violence, which has seen lots of love from Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal. If Children Of Bodom incorporated more old-school thrash riffs to its music, then you essentially have Thanatotic Desire. Take a listen to the group’s current single off of Silence To Violence called “Final Breath” below.


Thanatotic Desire aims to finish recording their second full-length, With Murder In Mind, this coming summer and fall. The band will be hitting the road soon for North American dates, including California dates with Whiplash this July. Check out Thanatotic Desire’s upcoming dates below (with more to come). Stay up to date on the band’s upcoming plans via Facebook, and purchase their music and merchandise on Big Cartel.
