MATRICIDE - Walk into the Flames

Matricide drops single 'Walk Into The Flames' - The first 2022 release for the Tel-Aviv Groove Metal quartet. The band's previous cover single was released and distributed by Universal Music.
“Going for a unique and fresh type of sound, the band sets off to explore new grounds, throwing some interesting elements into the mix. The idea was to send the listener into a new kind of journey; something heavy and groovy, but at the same time a spiritual, thought-provoking listening experience,” explains guitarist Auria Sapir. “The title of our new single fits perfectly, it’s about walking into the unknown, looking for a way out of our comfort zone, both in music and in life as a whole.”
The single is taken from the band’s upcoming second full-length album, a follow-up to their highly acclaimed “When Random Turns to Fate”. It sounds just how the band described it: Heavy and progressive, with powerful melodic hooks.
2022 marks a new era for Matricide - as they continue marching forward, establishing themselves as a powerful heavy quartet.
Bursting from the depths of the Middle East, Matricide is an eclectic band influenced by various elements within the heavy metal genre. Combining the speed and aggression of Death Metal, the attitude and aesthetics of Hardcore with the powerful groove and epic melodies you would hear within Nu-metal. Lyrically speaking, the band’s songs are comprised of profound and thought provoking philosophical and spiritual matters allowing fans to be drawn in through their ears, eyes and soul.
The word Matricide is derived from Latin meaning ''Mother Murder''.
(Matri = Mother; Cide = Murder)
Matricide is a metaphor for what is happening on our planet earth. Our mother is Gaia, Mother Earth. She is responsible for the purity and wonders of creation. Murder is reflected in the way that mankind takes these wonders for granted, and systematically destroys them and the planet's natural resources. All these different parts sum up to create Matricide's unique style, sound and image.
In 2008, Matricide released their debut EP titled “We Are Alive” which received great praise. The band executed a well-planned grass roots release that heavily impacted their regional status giving them a strong foothold within Israel, while also allowing Matricide to expand their presence globally. “We Are Alive” received positive reviews from online magazine all over the world priming the band for their sophomore release.
In 2013 Matricide released their follow up and first full-length titled “When Random Turns to Fate”. Matricide took this album to the next level in exploring new musical elements and lyrical direction while remaining true to their roots. The LP was mixed by Daniel Strosberg at the Keoss Studios in Tel Aviv and mastered in California by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Judas Priest and more). Once released, “When Random Turns to Fate” attributed to extensive touring and tremendous reviews for the band exposing them to much wider audiences worldwide.
Matricide is well known for their intense live show, energetic stage presence and over the top charismatic performance that quickly strike a bond with their audience.
Matricide has played extensively, sharing the stage in Israel with bands like Behemoth, Down and others. Matricide has also graciously had the opportunity to play throughout European festivals supporting bands like Orphaned Land, Cryptopsy, Disgorge, Jungle Rot, Klone and more.
Matricide later signed to Kame’s Music, a distributor in Israel to help push the bands efforts even further. The band also raised the attention of Schecter guitars that extended an endorsement and support to the band.
In 2016, Matricide sparked the attention of the well-known Extreme Management Group in New York, which put the band on an elite roster alongside reputable names such as Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Origin, Cryptopsy, Decrepit Birth, Atheist, Rings of Saturn and more.
​In 2022 Matricide release their new and highly anticipated single "Walk into the Flames". It is the first track written as a 4 piece band and it portrays the direction MTRCD is heading in. Stay Tuned.
