Dying Wish - Symptoms of Survival (New CD)
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. Symptoms of Survival, the band's 2023 sophomore album, is 11 songs of savage, pummeling assault against personal trauma and society at large. 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.
