The Skinny: The almighty Dethlehem has unleashed a brand new song titled “”Earthforger”” online via YouTube. Constantly on a quest to achieve maximum XP while delivering their signature brand of RPG melodic death metal, the pulverizing track is a taste of the heavy metal warrior’s new album, Destroyers Of The Realm (out on January 6, 2015). Stream “the song “Earthforger”” just below.

The five warriors of Dethlehem first joined forces years ago when their home realm of Ghorusalem (better known to human civilization as Pittsburgh, PA) fell to an ancient evil. Fueled by melodic metal, maidens in distress with supple bosoms, epic shredding, and loads of delicious ale, this group of heroic barbarians rose to the challenge to fight the malevolent under the cursed sky. Their successful battles against the wicked have led to sharing stages with the likes of GWAR and Gojira, performances at events likes Orlando’s Nerdapalooza 2013 and the Pittsburgh Zombie Fest, and even being declared the Best Metal Band by leading alt weekly Pittsburgh City Paper.

Destroyers Of The Realm will be made available via all digital platforms. Dethlehem will also be making its grand return to the MAGFest in in National Harbor, MD, playing its mainstage on January 25. More info about the group’s forthcoming plans for world domination can be found via the band’s Facebook page.
