Crushing Death/Thrash/Core from Des Moines, Iowa (USA)

Formed in 2018, Heir of Sorrow is proud to represent the Midwest metal scene from their home base in Des Moines, Iowa. The band's music takes its roots from late 80's thrash, early 90's death metal, 2010's metal/deathcore, with some doom and groove elements mixed in for good measure.
