The band has also unveiled the first single from the album, “Observed/Observer,” and it’s unsurprisingly killer. It’s a creative, seamless amalgamation of death metal, mathcore, and melodic post-metal. If the whole album is this good, the long wait for new Zao music will have been well worth it

Check out “Observed/Observer” below, courtesy of RevolverThe Well-Intentioned Virus will be out December 9 on the band’s own label, which just so happens to be called Observed/Observer Recordings. Pre-order it here.
