Your Chance to Die is a melodic death metal band from Columbia, South Carolina. Playing together since 2007, YCTD has created a sound blending death metal with hauntingly beautiful melodies to develop music that is truly unique. YCTD has a great live show that employs passion and a brutal sound that will leave you breathless and begging for more.

In 2009 YCTD self-released their first full length album and since that time has been working with renowned producer Jamie King (Through the Eyes of the Dead, The Human Abstract, Between the Buried and Me) on their second full length album ‘Suscitatio Somnus’. Teaser tracks for this album are now available on MySpace and Facebook.

Here’s what’s been said about them:

“This Columbia-based band specializes in a style of melodic death metal that comes on just as intense as fans of the genre have come to expect.” ListenUpMyrtleBeach

“Radiate brain busting yet melodic guitar riffs. This is accompanied by machine-like drums that exude adrenaline and speed that leaves listeners no choice but to get their headbangs on!” SHOUT EZINE

“This female-fronted death metal quintet reigns in blood, bringing brutality like nobody’s business.” Free Times, Columbia SC


Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
