Wanna hear something fucking awesome?
Then head to the very end of this post, where — in honor of the band’s tour kicking off tonight — we’re streaming a brand new track from Locusta.
The Ohio-based technical grinding death metal outfit is currently putting the finishing touches on a full-length album to be released later this year, but the following tune is a preview of the new stuff, really.
It’s called “Contaminant Remains” and will appear on the band’s forthcoming, four-track Dendromorphosis EP which also includes a molten rendition of Death’s “See Through Dreams.”
Dendromorphosis will be available for purchase at all upcoming tour dates.
Comments the band of their forthcoming live offensive:
“We’re looking forward to hitting the road again after such an agonizingly long break from touring and to what we’re anticipating will be some of the best shows we’ve ever played, both in respect to the caliber of the bands we’re billed with and the fact that our live sets sound tighter than they ever have before. Our set lists will mostly contain songs from the new album, including the first track we’ve ever written that extends past the nine-minute mark, which is easily the darkest and most epic piece of music we’ve written so far.
“There is more grinding technicality than before, but the songs are also much more mature from a songwriting point of view than what you hear on our first album. We’re excited to be sharing this time in the band with all of our new and old friends on the road, but…no survivors.”
