Today the fine metal miscreants at Decibel offer up an exclusive premiere of “Naraka” from German death metal moguls DEFEATED SANITY. The tune comes by way of the band’s forthcomingslab ofiniquity — Passages Into Deformity. Scheduled for release on February 5, 2013 through Willowtip Records, Passages Into Deformity was recorded at Soundlodge Studios in Germany and includes guest vocal appearances by Frank Rini (Internal Bleeding), AJ Magana (ex-DEFEATED SANITY, Disgorge US), and Brian Forgue (Syphilic, Gutrot) as well as sound effects by Jon Engman (ex-Brodequin).
In an early review of the record, MetalRunsInMyVeins gushes: “…don’t be surprised if DEFEATED SANITY’s Passages Into Deformity is still reigning atop the brutal death metal crest,” while the The Metal Observer, in a 9/10 rating, commends the band for their “intensity and unbridled imagination,” likening the nine-track monster to “the very heaviest Vile and Cryptopsy have had to offer.”
Says bassist Jacob Schmidt of “Naraka;” “Here we have the first mid-tempo-only song we’ve written in years! It’s probably the slowest and grooviest on Passages. Enjoy!”
