Blood From the Soul (Napalm Death, Megadeth, Converge, Nasum) Debut a Pair of New Songs

  • Axl Rosenberg

Blood From the Soul, one of Shane Embury’s 7,866,792 projects (Napalm Death, Brujeria, Lock Up, Venomous Concept, Born to Murder the World, Tronos, etc.), have released a new single, “Calcified Youth,” via Decibel. You can check it out below.

(There was another track, “Debris of Dreams,” released a couple of weeks back, but it somehow escaped our attention. I’ll include that below as well.)

“Calcified Youth” heralds the arrival of Blood From the Soul 2.0’s new album, DSM-5, which is a droll title: the DSM-5 is shorthand for the fifth edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which is the book shrinks use to diagnosis people.

Here’s the track list:

  1. “Fang Tooth Claw “
  2. “Ascend the Spine”
  3. “Calcified Youth”
  4. “Debris of Dreams”
  5. “Dismantle the Titan”
  6. “Encephalon Escape”
  7. “Subtle Fragment”
  8. “Terminal Truth”
  9. “Sharpened Heart”
  10. “Self Deletion”
  11. “Lurch of Loss”
  12. “DSM-5”

This is, technically speaking, the band’s first new album in 27 years, since 1993’s To Spite the Gland That Breeds. But other than Embury and the name, this iteration of the project has nothing to do with the old one. Back then, Sick of It All’s Lou Keller handled vocals; this time out, Embury has enlisted Converge’s Jacob Bannon. The new line-up is rounded by out Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren and Jesper Liveröd, formerly of Nasum and Burst.

When Bannon initially revealed the existence of this project back in June, he said that the project “might have some live elements at some point.” Obviously that won’t be any time soon, though.

DSM-5 will be out November 13 on Deathwish, and can be pre-ordered here.
