Track Premiere: Cast the Stone, “As the Dead Lie”
We sure hope you like elephants marching riffs, because “As the Dead Lie,” the first single from Cast the Stone’s forthcoming new album Empyrean Atrophy, starts off with an absolutely MONSTROUS one sure to invoke images of a herd of scaly, gray, majestic beasts rolling across the plains. We hope you like ripping melodeath riffs also, because this track’s got those too. Oh, you just like catchy death metal jams? Lucky for you, Cast the Stone got you covered here as well. There is absolutely nothing not to like about this track or band, which features members of Misery Index, Scour and ex-Cattle Decapitation.
Empyrean Atrophy comes out August 31st via Agonia Records; pre-order here. The EP marks the band’s first release since their debut full-length in 2005, Dark Winds Descending.
