Bay Area death metal/punk threesome Necrot have unleashed their new single titled “Asleep Forever,” which you can stream below. The new song appears on the band’s upcoming full-length album on Tankcrimes, ‘Mortal’ (due out August 28th – pre-order: Physical + Digital).
Here’s more info on the upcoming LP via the official announcement:
Mortal was recorded by Grammy award winning engineer Greg Wilkinson (High On Fire, Autopsy) and mastered by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Cattle Decapitation, Mastodon) at West West Side. The followup to the band’s critically adored Blood Offerings full-length is at once earth rupturing and memorable. Easily their most precise performance to date, Mortal foams at its mouth with destructive rhythms, intricate guitar leads, and guttural domination.
Regarding the new single, bassist/vocalist Luca Indrio adds:
‘Asleep Forever’ talks about knowing that you’re going to die and about discovering and embracing that state of consciousness to find relief. In death, you will finally be allowed to leave behind all that made you suffer and all that tormented you. Everything will be just and equal at the end when we’ll be asleep forever. It’s one of our heaviest and most melodic songs so far and I’m very curious to see how our fans will receive it. It’s one of my favorites.
