Exclusive Track Premiere: Underling, “Downpour” (Members of Fallujah, Battlecross, Arkaik)
When MetalSucks received an email about Underling, a new band featuring members of Fallujah, Battlecross and Arkaik, our curiosity was instantly piqued by association.
Thankfully the three tracks the band let us hear from their debut album Bloodworship more than lived up to expectations based on their cast of characters. Best of all, Underling sound remarkably little like any of the members’ other bands; they are entirely their own beast, a lumbering mammoth-like mix of death metal, black metal, post-hardcore and post-everything.
“Downpour” was our favorite of the bunch. We could use flowery language to describe what it sounds like, but the truth is there are no easy touchstones to which to compare it, and music is best experienced by, ya know, LISTENING.
So check it out below and see what you think. Pre-order Bloodworship here.
