“Whether it’s writing with wailing solos, slithering with sinuous synth lines, or awash with waves of riptide riffs, Whythre’s latest is without remorse. They came to lay waste and write solid album titles — and they’re all out of album titles. Consequently, Impregnate My Hate opens with the single Scorchbreath, an onslaught of solos, slamming breakdowns, subtle orchestration, and a sing-along chorus that embodies Whythre’s deft formulation of melodic death metal singed with a blackened edge. Having been fixtures in the Seattle metal scene since 2016, band members Shon Petrey, Adam Chambers, Eric Close, and Steve Fournier know their way around both riff craft and laying down a tight performance. But Whythre’s latest expulsion of fury seethes like a band that’s only getting started, from the first violent lick to the final double-bass kick. Follow along to standout tracks like Immanence, which thunders along with the certainty of slow death and offers little in the way of forgiveness, or to Scorpions of Sinai, which has a groove guaranteed to move any circle pit. The fury of Whythre’s writing is real, but fury is rarely this much fun: expect to get your ass kicked, and to enjoy it.” – Whythre

“The drums snap and boom; the nimble, pulsing bass work amplifies the song’s surging, head-moving rhythms; the guitarists deliver jabs and jolts, fiery soloing, and fluid melody; and Tachell’s vocals [previous vocalist] are scalding in their intensity. You put all that together, and you get music that sends the blood rushing and proves to be highly addictive as well” – NO CLEAN SINGING ‘Savage’single review “The songs on this EP turn out to be damned addictive. It’s very easy, at the end, to just go back to the beginning and ride this lightning again… and again” StillBorn World EP Review – NO CLEAN SINGING

[Adam] – ‘Impregnate My Hate’, as a phrase really sums it up….Modern times… Most folks are jumping down each other’s throats, willing vessels to the online projection of what modern entertainment and communication should be. Society is fragmenting into niche groups & how each individual deals with this is literally making or breaking their existence.

Shon and I talk at great lengths about exploring the shattered and celebrating the depravity used to nurture ourselves at the moment. It all comes with consequences…Personally, it’s fun to creatively dive into how this all plays out for each individual on an extended timeline.

[Shon] – Musically we wanted to explore writing ranging from aggressive mindlessness to slow and somber moments…with some catchy hooks!

Whythre is a melodic death metal band from Seattle, blending hints of black metal and thrash into their hook-driven songwriting. The band was started in 2015 with the release of their debut full-length ‘Hel’s Hollows’ followed by their 2019 EP ‘Stillborn World’. The lineup has undergone numerous changes and now consists of Shon Petrey (Guitars, Synths), Adam Chambers (Vocals, Guitars, Synths), Eric Close (Bass), and Steve Fournier (Drums).

The new album “Impregnate My Hate”, due out in 2023, is a move toward a wide variety of moods on each track. It is packed with heavy grooves, blistering riffs, and huge symphonic waves.

Their live shows have spanned the northwest including two appearances at Washington Deathfest and opening for acts like Obscura, Pain, Archspire, Orphaned Land, Beyond Creation, Ghost Bath, Astronoid, and the upcoming Hypocrisy/Fleshgod tour. On stage, they put on a raw thrashy show with face-melting leads and fist-pumping riffs. Whythre is a growing force with a distinctive sound that is not to be missed!
