Video Premiere: Disentomb, “The Decaying Light”

0

Press copy is so often filled with worthless fluff but occasionally hits the mark, and one phrase in particular from the writeup accompanying Disentomb’s new album The Decaying Light, the title track of which we’re premiering on MetalSucks today, stuck out as wonderfully apt: “doomed out brutality.”

One listen to “The Decaying Light” and you’ll know exactly what the band meant with that phrase. Yes, Disentomb play death metal — some might even say brutal death metal — but it’s slower and more deliberate than your average growly-faced bear, the mid-paced grooves giving ample space for the intricate guitar and bass work, chromatically inspired by Sabbath and their ilk (as well as traditional DM torchbearers like Gorguts), to fully shine through. Like the guys said, doomed out brutality.

The Decaying Light comes out July 12th via Unique Leader and can be pre-ordered here: physical / digital / EU/UK. Catch the band live in Australia later this summer and in North America on the Bloodletting Tour this fall. All dates underneath the embed.
