We don’t often devote our premieres to mere teasers of new music — in fact, today may be the first time we have ever done it. But in this case we couldn’t resist. What you’re about to see is a video that reveals details about an exciting new band as well as a taste of the explosive and electrifyingly brutalizing sounds they are concocting in the unusual recording process that has now become a necessity in these times of viral plague.
The name of the band is Instigate, and it first drew our excited attention because of the people who are in the line-up. As the video explains, the idea for Instigate sprang from the mind of guitarist Stefano Rossi Ciucci, who is a member of the Italian death metal band Bloodtruth, whose music we have featured more than one at NCS, most recently in our December 2019 premiere of a video for a track off their ravaging 2018 album Martyrium, released by Unique Leader Records.
Rounding out the Instigate line-up are Bloodtruth bassist Riccardo Rogari, vocalist Stefano Borciani from Demiurgon, and drummer extraordinaire Kevin Talley, who has performed with the likes of Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Misery Index, and Chimaira.
Instigate‘s forthcoming promo album, Echoes of Dying World, is being recorded by this line-up in their separate home studios, and the results are being re-amped and mixed by the maestro Stefano Morabito at his famed 16th Cellar Studio in Rome. It will be adorned by artwork created by Vladimir “Smerdulak” Chebakov.
As for the music, Stefano describes Instigate as “a death metal band with grindcore and hardcore running in its veins”. You’ll get a fine adrenaline-triggering taste of what that sounds like in the video — just a taste of high-speed, skull-cracking, ripping and tearing ferocity.
Stay tuned to these channels for further news about Instigate‘s activities and the new music they’re creating while under lock and key.
