UK metallic sludge unit Mastiff has revealed "Void," the latest single from their upcoming album, Deprecipice, due out on March 22nd via MNRK Heavy

Says vocalist Jim Hodge:

We've gone quite a lot towards a hardcore sound. Where the last one was more death metal, this one's a lot more staccato: a lot more defined, riff-wise.

The album's called Deprecipice, and that pretty much sums up where me and James were when we wrote it. We were both standing back on the edge of a depressive void.

"Void," the second single from Deprecipice, is described as an intense hybrid of hardcore, punk and metal, the soundtrack to Neurosis, Converge, and Cursed battling in a Roman Coliseum.

Guitarist/vocalist James Lee Ross offers: 

'Void' might not fall in the literal middle of Deprecipice, but in many ways it acts as a thematic centerpiece, both musically and lyrically. There's a strong Converge influence in the guitars for sure, and we wanted it to have a ragged, almost punk sound that gradually evolves into this monstrous, lurching breakdown. [Bassist] Dan [Dolby] and [producer] Joe [Clayton] then worked on washing the song over with some nasty, unsettling electronic noise that gives it this really queasy vibe.
