Calgary’s THIRD CHAMBER Premiere First Single Off Politically Charged EP “Harvesting Our Decay”
Written by JayRock on 12th October 2019
Third Chamber has been lurking around the Calgary metal scene for years, biding their time and working tirelessly to bring to you their debut EP “Harvesting Our Decay” on November 22, 2019.
The greasy and chugging death metal is a myriad of genre flavours taking into account the styles and influences of the five musicians who have been gracing stages for decades in their other projects and bands.
Now they have come together to produce a mechanical blackened sound with lyrical content that is not for the faint of heart.
The band explains:
“Lyrically the songs are based on the current politicized state of the world. Environmentally, economically and socially everything is used by the beating drums of those in power to maintain control and their position. Musically we are aiming to help you cope with said issues by providing an aggressive yet melodic 25 minutes of blackened death metal sure to make you drive faster and work out harder and maybe even help people realize that a 1st world problem is the least of their problems.”
The five-song EP is introduced with the title track as a single which takes a look at how humanity is destroying the environment with constant wars, exploitation of natural resources and endless pollution.
As the band quips:
“We’re f*cked and won’t survive the earth once the healing truly begins.”
With influences primarily being old school death metal, Third Chamber adds a spatter of modern death metal aesthetics to the tune of Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, At the Gates, Misery Index and a touch of Napalm Death.
Third Chamber will be playing live in Alberta in November and December. Don’t forget your earplugs.

Comprised of several musicians with a long history in Calgary’s metal scene, Third Chamber is cooking up a new, yet familiar death metal sound that will nourish even the pickiest of metal enthusiasts.
With death being the main ingredient in their metal melting pot, hints of grindcore and hardcore also stand out amidst flavours of politically charged lyrics. Third Chamber is not music for the soft, besides being musically ferocious, the lyrical content is a brutal reflection of the current state of the world. From negative motivations of religious organizations, the effects of social media on mental distress, the ever-growing pride of ignorance, the exploitation of our natural resources for the profit of the wealthy and the manipulation and lack of actual truth in most media consumed by the ever-growing bewildered herd.
In 2019, Third Chamber is releasing their debut five-track EP “Harvesting Our Decay”.
