Alterbeast announce album, debut new song
Official press release: Sacramento technical death metal militia, Alterbeast, is pleased to unleash their full-length debut via Unique Leader Records this Spring. Titled Immortal, the eight track monster offering was meticulously assembled in several locals throughout 2013. With guitars and bass recorded at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan "Bart" Williams, vocals arranged at Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento by Bob Swanson (Rings Of Saturn, Plague Window et al) and drums tracked at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, First Blood, Cattle Decapitation, Warbringer et al), who also mixed and mastered the release, Immortal promises to deliver some of the most dynamic, instrumentally adept and plainly crushing material of the year. Elaborates vocalist Cam Rogers of the outcome: "Immortal is what was spawned from hard work, dedication, and downright brutal musicianship. It has intricate solos, absolutely crushing interludes and brutal circle-pit anthems. Alterbeast sets the scene with grievous piano preceding the onset of 'Flesh Bound Text' which comes in with blistering drums and guitars effortlessly making their way around the fret board. Every piece truly has its own personality on this record, whether it's the apocalyptic soundscapes of 'Ancient's Retribution,' the devastating aggression of 'Vile Remnants' or the unmerciful grooves in 'Throne of Maggots.' This album has something for every listener and comes together seamlessly to form as a breathtaking whole. Immortal is exactly what we intended it to be: a gripping and intense death metal album." Liquefy your brain with the sounds of opening track "Flesh Bound Text" below: Immortal Track Listing: 1. Flesh Bound Text 2. Of Decimus Divine 3. Vile Remnants 4. Ancient's Retribution 5.
