Bay Area death metal/punk trio NECROT today unleashes “Asleep Forever,” the latest sampling of their long-anticipated new full-length, Mortal.
Set for release on August 28th via Tankcrimes, 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.
Comments bassist/vocalist Luca Indrio of the latest single, “‘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.”
