Your Chance to Die was formed in 2007 by original members Coca and Missi Avila. Over the last 8 years, the band has morphed into the current lineup of powerhouse musicians Ron Dalton and Coca Avila (guitar), Thomas White (drums), and Missi Avila and Som Pluijmers (vocals). The band which began as a 4 piece metalcore act has now progressed into a melodic death metal machine, featuring powerful vocals by Missi and Som (ex-vocalist for Cerebral Bore).
YCTD has produced 2 full length records (Suscitacio Somnus 2011; The American Dream 2013) and are now currently working on their third. This new record is sated to be a masterpiece, with the first 2 tracks available as a preproduction upon request. It will be the first record to feature Thomas White and Ron Dalton, as well as the first with the dual vocals of both Missi and Som. Fans are highly anticipating this release, due out in Winter 2016.
YCTD has a long touring record, including opening national tours for bands like Origin, Wednesday 13, King Parrot, Arsonists Get all The Girls, and Beyond Creation. They have also toured as a headlining act to Central America and Mexico, as well as several national tours.
YCTD brings energy and passion to the stage and is gaining world wide momentum as they gain exposure. Curious fans always stay to hear this dual female fronted death metal band, and always leave impressed and begging for more. YCTD has been featured on several local, national and international radio stations, national magazines and websites. As Outburn magazine stated ‘this band is one to look out for, for years to come!’
Here is what reviewers have to say about Your Chance to Die:
‘Their songwriting and musicianship are excellent, and I thoroughly enjoyed The American Dream.’ Chad Bower About.com Heavy Metal Reviews
’Guitarists Crouch and Coca Avila shift nimbly from low, bludgeoning riffs to light and triumphant solos. White drives the band with an artillery of muscular beats, never sacrificing agility for blunt force. But Missi Avila remains the band’s centerpiece, her vocals managing clear elocution amid guttural eruptions. ‘ The Free Times
‘What you have here is a band…a band that makes it work. The vocals are straight. When listening, you forget the whole female aspect and just listen to the music for what it is. And what it is, is a brutal assault of melodic death metal.’ Buried Sound
‘This album is filled with rapid drum blasts, nitrous fuelled, atomic powered guitar playing, and a vocal power that leaves you in awe. It was a truly fun listen from beginning to end, no doubt.’ The Metal Resource
‘ All the earmarks of good technical death metal are here. Impressive drumming and virtuoso guitar playing all executed with robot precision from the first song to the last’ SMN News
