Exclusive Track Premiere: Kneel’s “Watchful”
Gojira fans: if you don’t already know Kneel, now is the time to get acquainted. The solo project from multi-instrumentalist and producer Pedro Mau (ex-Kneeldown, Wells Valley) is going to be your next great obsession.
As demonstrated by “Watchful,” the track we’re stoked to be debuting today on MetalSucks, Kneel play a groove-laden, expansive form of death metal, punctuated by riffs that gallop and sputter and stomp and slither. It’s certain to appeal to fans of the lauded French band.
Which is not to say that Kneel is simply Gojira Jr. “Watchful” has the fiery edge of metallic hardcore bands like Burnt by the Sun and Coalesce and the charred atmospherics of blackened death metal acts such as Belphegor and Panzerchrist. The resulting music is muscular, mesmeric, and absolutely pulverizing.
Check out “Watchful” below! The track will appear on Kneel’s new album, Ailment, which comes out October 16 via Raging Planet and Planet K. Pre-order it here!!!
