Sacramento, Ca death metal shredders ALTERBEAST will release their sophomore album Feast via Unique Leader Records on February 23rd. The nine track effort, featuring founding guitarist Andrew Lamb, new vocalist Michael Alvarez, and drummer Alex Bent (of Trivium) showcases the band’s most technical and exciting material to date.
In advance of the album’s release, Alterbeast has premiered a lyric video for the song “Apex Night Eclipse” saying “The track showcases an amalgam of modern death metal hallmarks; dazzling technical wizardry, unstoppable groove, and giant-sized hooks (both vocal and guitar)…”
Guitarist Andrew Lamb says of the track, “”We are excited to give you our first single off our new album FEAST! We wanted to recreate that magic of growing up and having to hide certain records under your bed. And with songs like Apex Night Eclipse, we think we achieved that goal. Hard hitting, relentless riffing, and vocals that will leave every church in flames. Alterbeast denies Christ with every note of Apex Night Eclipse. Toss your Ouija Boards in the garbage, because this blasphemous hymn is guaranteed to summon the Devil! Get your first glimpse of Michael Alvarez’s brute vocals as well as Alex Bent’s crushing drums! End piano piece written and performed by our good friend Ryan McNatt of the very talented Enigma! We hope you dig it!”
Feast was recorded by Zach Ohren (Immolation, Carnifex) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, Ca and mastered by John Scrip at Massive Mastering. Cover art by Megan Mushi.
Sacramento, Ca based tech death powerhouse ALTERBEAST have returned with their highly anticipated sophomore album Feast, which will see a February 23rd release date via Unique Leader Records. The nine track offering was engineered and mixed by Zach Ohren (Immolation, Fallujah, Carnifex) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, Ca and mastered by John Scrip at Massive Mastering.
Feast showcases ALTERBEAST’s most interesting material to date. With their distinctive mix of old school melodic shred and blistering, modern death metal the band has unleashed an album that will keep fans headbanging from start to finish. With a newfound confidence and songwriting prowess honed through years of touring, Feast is the sound of a band truly coming into their own.
Says founding guitarist Andrew Lamb of the effort, “I’ve never been more proud of a record then I am with Feast. We poured our hearts, souls, hate, and malice into this album, and I think it really shows. With the addition of Michael’s ‘take no prisoners’ vocals, and Alex Bent’s ‘Beast-Mode’ style drumming; Feast is hands down our best album yet, and it will remind everyone that Wolftang Clan ain’t nothin’ to fuck with.”
Vocalist Michael Alvarez adds, “When listening to the rough pre production I was immediately blown away at the how awesome the songs were! Both Andrew and Alex really killed it, inspiring me to deliver some of the best vocal tracks I have ever recorded!” I’m truly honored to have taken part on this record and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed writing and recording it!”
Feast pre-orders + lyric video to be announced in the coming weeks.
