On February 10th, 2023, Distant – the multinational down-tempo/deathcore juggernaut from Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and the Slovak Republic – will release their third full-length studio album, “Heritage”, via Century Media Records.
The previously released album tracks – “Exofilth” and “Human Scum” – can be streamed online now, with new single, “Orphan of Blight”, also available on all digital platforms here.
The video for “Orphan of Blight” [directed by Bart Sperling (Rock Steady Visual)] can be seen below.
Distant comments: “If there ever was to be a song that encapsulates everything Distant is, then it’s ‘Orphan of Blight’ from our upcoming album, ‘Heritage’. With our signature mix of theatrical and energetic delivery, ‘Orphan of Blight’ also includes an opera singer as the wonderful icing on a devastating deathcore cake”!
“Heritage” is available in the following formats:
• Ltd. CD Digipak
• Black LP
• Transp. red LP available from CM Distro Wholesale EU, CMdistro.de and USA outlets (limited to 500 copies)
• White LP available from CM Distro Wholesale EU and CMdistro.de (limited to 300 copies)

• Digital album

With an impressive discography of two highly regarded LPs plus a number of singles and EPs behind them, Distant is poised to become the face of European deathcore. Heritage – Distant’s Century Media debut – sees the five-piece take things to a new level, with a musical and lyrical reckoning: the album continues on the thematic, sci-fi-leaning lyrical cycle which the band transposed from aural intensity to the published page with vocalist Alan Grnja’s and bassist Elmer Maurits’ first novel, “The Rise of Tyrannotophia”. Already seen and heard across stages worldwide (including 2022’s Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault, as well as North America’s “Chaos & Carnage” tour with labelmates Lorna Shore and Suicide Silence), the tracks found on “Heritage” once again deliver Distant’s signature brand of down-tuned and downtempo heaviness. This is the sound of deathcore rising…
