Immortal Bird Release Face-Smashing Single “Anger Breeds Contempt” from Upcoming LP
If Immortal Bird aren’t on your radar, much like they weren’t on mine since I’m a plebe, it’s time to put down whatever you’re doing and get that thumb (or index finger) clicking on their newest single, “Anger Breeds Contempt,” because this is some monumental stuff.
This song grabbed my head from the very first second and smashed it on the ground repeatedly asking, “YOU LIKE THAT?!” And like the musical sadist I am, I indeed loved it. The track is an organized glob comprised of multiple layers of grind, blackened death metal and hardcore, delivering a sound that sends out both order through progressive riffs and destructive chaos through raging blast beasts and haphazard patterns, all underneath Rae Amitay’s growls to weave those seemingly disparate elements together.
“Anger Breeds Contempt” comes off Immortal Bird’s upcoming second LP entitled Thrive On Neglect. Produced by Dave Otero (Archspire, Cattle Decapitation, Khemmis), the album’s heavy production is ideally suited for Immortal Bird’s orchestrated chaos.
Thrive On Neglect won’t come out until July 5 via 20 Buck Spin, but in the meantime you can stream the newest single below. Digital preorders are available here; stay tuned for physical preorders in the coming weeks. You can also catch Immortal Bird on tour, with dates found below the embed.
