With it being November, many metal publications are preparing to share their “end of the year lists,” which will also include their picks for “Album Of The Year.” Our friends over at Decibel Magazine just published their top 40 albums of 2022 (and they named some amazing records). But, of all the records this year, they awarded their “Album Of The Year” to the new Undeath album, It’s Time… To Rise from the Grave!

This news also arrives in time with the announcement of a brand new release from Undeath – that being a live album titled Live… From The Grave. Speaking to this new live album and It’s Time… To Rise from the Grave being awarded Album Of The Year by Decibel, band vocalist Alexander Jones shares the following comment:

“Stoked as fuck to announce our first ever LIVE ALBUM, ‘LIVE…FROM THE GRAVE’! We’ve been huge fans of killer live albums like ‘Live Cannibalism’ and ‘Unleashed in the East’ forever and considering the fact that we’ve been touring consistently for the past year and a half, we figured there’s no time like the present to drop one of our own! The album is taken from our tour supporting Dying Fetus this past spring and highlights a bunch of tracks off of ‘It’s Time…to Rise From the Grave’. If you can’t catch us live, this is the next best option for you. It’s like we’re right there stinking up your car/living room/cousin’s wedding/wherever you choose to throw this bad boy on…

“We’re also beyond honored to not only be on the cover of the year-end issue of Decibel, but to also have ‘It’s Time…To Rise from the Grave’ take the number one spot on their Top 40 Albums of the Year list! Insanity.

“We’ve been fans of Decibel for years and, as sappy as it sounds, we used to daydream about stuff like this happening at our very first practices. It honestly still doesn’t feel real, but this shit is as real as it gets! Seriously can’t begin to thank Decibel and everyone who’s supported us this year enough. Shoutout to FUCKING DEATH METAL.”

Congratulations to all the guys in Undeath! We adore It’s Time… To Rise from the Grave and will be including it on our end-of-the-year list year as well. Live… From The Grave is out today digitally, and a physical release will be available in 2023.
