Binary Code Release “Immersion,” First New Song in Six Years
One year and one month ago, Binary Code released a 44-second teaser of a new song called “Immersion” promising a full video for the track “soon.” Four years and several months prior to that, they released the Priest EP. And that, my friends, was the last time we heard a full, brand new original song from these New Jersey progressive death metal gentlemen. This, of course, after the band released their debut full-length Suspension of Disbelief right here on MetalSucks in 2009.
“Soon” didn’t come nearly soon enough, but it’s finally here: the band just dropped all of “Immersion” via Bandcamp (although sans video), and boy does it sound fucking massive.
Those who started following the band on Priest or Suspension (or even earlier) will find that they’ve moved away from their tech-death roots in favor of something more atmospheric, nuanced and dynamic, although no less expertly crafted. They’ll also find clean vocals courtesy of Oded Weinstock, who’s been singing with the band live for some time but makes his recorded debut here, and those vocals suit the band’s new direction incredibly well. It’s great to have these guys back, and it’s encouraging to hear them still in top form (though guitarist/founder/mastermind Jesse Zuretti is the only remaining member from the Priest era) and kicking ass.
Jam “Immersion” below and pre-order new album Moonsblood here. The album was recorded and mixed by Eyal Levi, and comes out on May 24th.
