At this site we focus our attentions on a broad range of metal, but if there is a common thread to all the music, it’s that it exerts a powerful pull on the emotions — and/or the viscera. The subject of this post is a band from Germany named Infecting the Swarm, whose debut album Pathogenesis will be released by Lacerated Enemy Records on May 5. And as you will learn from the new song we’re about to premiere, Infecting the Swarm is coming for your viscera.
The name of the song is “Aberrated Antibiosis”. Your first clue to what it holds lies before you in the album cover by Federico Musetti. Those creatures are humanoid, but not human. They look hungry. They look violent. They yearn for something that may be better left unsaid. All that is true of the song as well.
“Aberrated Antibiosis” is a brutal death metal assault, loaded with hammering, slashing riffs and a snare-heavy drum attack. Gruesome guttural gurgling bubbles up through all that instrumental obliteration, and there’s an extraterrestrial guitar solo in here, too — though maybe not in the place you would expect to find it.
Pathogenesis will contain nine tracks in all, with a sci-fi themed focus, and it can be pre-ordered via the Lacerated Enemy Bandcamp link below. Listen to “Aberrated Antibiosis” in the Bandcamp player we’ve embedded here, and after that check out the previously released track, “Cellular Shifting”.
