Track Premiere: Muldrotha (Fallujah, The Zenith Passage, Decrepit Birth) Unveil Scorching New Track, “Lungs of the Mother”


It’s been over two years since we’ve heard former Fallujah frontman Alex Hofmann roar into a microphone, and more than three since he’s done it on record. We’ve missed him! And, as it turns out, he’s missed you, too.

Hofmann returns today with a new outfit, Muldrotha, together with his former Fallujah bandmate Andrew Baird on drums, Rob Maramonte of The Zenith Passage on guitars, and Decrepit Birth’s Sean Martinez on bass. And here’s what he tells MetalSucks about his time away from death metal and subsequent return to the fold with some old pals:

“It had been over two and a half years since I’d been anywhere near a microphone when I got a text from Rob asking if i’d like to get back in the game. Getting into the studio and working with with Cody Fuentes at Rapture Recordings reminded me how much I still love singing death metal and how much fun I have doing it with friends Rob, Sean, and Andrew. ‘Lungs of the Mother’ is stripped down, focused, and relentless; a song channeling the rage over our impassivity, as mother earth is murdered in front of us.”

Gotta love that message. And you gotta love the music, too, way more aggressive and traditional, as far as death metal goes, than Fallujah or The Zenith Passage (but closer to Decrepit Birth). Give it a spin below and wait for more from Muldrotha in 2020.

“Lungs of the Mother” is available on Bandcamp, where you can also stream the outfit’s recent EP release, Where Terror Thrives. Follow the band on Facebook and Instagram.
