Roughly 18 months ago we premiered a video for a track called “Evidence of Tyranny” by the Italian death metal band Psychotomy, which was a precursor to a new album that was expected later that year. The album didn’t arrive quite as soon as we had hoped, given how good that first teaser was, but now it is nearly upon us: It will be released on September 28th by Everlasting Spew Records. The album includes “Evidence of Tyranny” in “a brand new and fully improved guise”, along with eight other ravaging tracks, one of which we have for you today.
“Witness of Void” is a masterful achievement, a song whose immediately strong impression becomes even more impressive with further listening. And the song both induces and demands further listening because it’s such a twisted, continually changing nightmare, and so insidiously effective at worming its way into the listener’s head for a long, haunting occupancy.
