10-String Avant-Garde Death Metal Band Coma Cluster Void Release New Single “Drowning Into Sorrow”
In The Great Strings Arms Race of 2014, one band reigned supreme: Coma Cluster Void, an avant garde death metal band helmed by guitarist John Schneider, who uses a 10-string guitar, and bassist Sylvia Hinz. The multi-national band’s brand of death metal is skronky, visceral, churning and groovy: think the best parts of Gorguts, Ulcerate, Portal and Meshuggah all blended into one.
Now Coma Cluster Void return with a brand new song, “Drowning Into Sorrow,” via ItDjents.com (don’t worry — it doesn’t djent). If you like any of the above bands there’s a good chance you’ll dig on this; if it makes you feel queasy on the insides… well, it’s doing its job. This is not easy music to listen to, but that’s kinda the point.
Ex-Cryptopsy vocalist Mike DiSalvo and Dimensionless vocalist Austin Taylor trade off on most of the album, while Lord Worm (also ex-Cryptopsy) and Will Smith (Artificial Brain) contribute as well.
