This will be quick: those titanic Tasmanians in Psycroptic have released a new song for streaming. It’s called “Carriers of the Plague”. It’s from their forthcoming album, The Inherited Repression (the artwork for which you can see above), which will hit stores on February 7th in North America and February 10, 2012 in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records.

I like it. You will like it, too.  That’s both a prediction and an order.

Listen after the jump, and then leave comments telling us how much you like it.  I also have another new song you WILL also like (in the next post).

  1. D:


  2. That tickled my jiggly bits in all the right places

  3. You’re psychic. I liked it, particularly the 2nd half of the song.

  4. Nice. If Spawn of Possession also gets their album out next year, then 2012 is looking promising for technical death metal.

  5. I am instantly erect with anticipation.

  6. I think I just punched a hole in my desk.

  7. Always wanted to like these guys, but wished the Haley’s stayed in The Amenta and made it the powerhouse it should have become. The past releases were just too tech wankery for my tastes.

    Is this the same vocalist as past releases? Sounds different to me (too lazy to investigate right now. LOL)

    • Seconded. Psycroptic should be up my street, being technical as all hell, but I’ve never got on with them as much as The Amenta.

      Having said that, this is a pretty damn good track and that riff at 3:09 is amazing. I will check out the album in due course.

  8. Meh, I really liked this band and think Observant was probably their best and most focused release to date. But to me, this song sounds like an unreleased b-side that wasn’t good enough to go on the previously mentioned album. I’ve been looking forward to this release for the better part of a year. Let’s hope the rest of it is a step up.
