American death/sludge metal outfit Yatra has signed to Prosthetic Records for the release of their new studio album.

Yatra is a brutally heavy death sludge trio from Maryland, consisting of Dana Helmuth on guitar and vocals, Maria Geisbert on bass, and Sean Lafferty on drums. Since their origin in 2018, Yatra has released three full-length albums, with much critical acclaim, including the 2019 »Death Ritual«, 2020 »Blood Of The Night«, and the 2020 »All Is Lost«.

From Prosthetic Records:

Prosthetic Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Maryland trio, Yatra. The band has recently been in the studio working on their debut release under the Prosthetic banner, the follow up to 2020’s »All Is Lost« long player – which took a turn away from doom and dived headlong into an old school death metal vibe. Yatra will hit the road later this week for a run of dates – including a string of shows with High Reeper – full dates are below.

Of the signing to Prosthetic the band commented: “We are very happy to be working with Prosthetic Records, and super excited about this new album that we have just recorded. It is our best album yet, and a crucial step for us in the evolution of Yatra as a band, in the darkness of this changing world we are living in.”

Since their inception, just four short years ago, Yatra have released three full-length albums; their appetite for quantity may be voracious but they haven’t compromised on quality. Their take on sludgy death metal is served up blackened around the edges. Stay tuned for more Yatra news in the coming months.
