Greetings tech fiends, it's that time of the week again. Before we dive into today's column, here's the usual weekly reminder that if you're looking to find even more sick bands, you can do so here.
For this week's column, I've got the premiere of "Yersinia Pestis" from Australian mechanical-sounding brutalists Sensory Amusia. The song comes from the group's upcoming second album, Breed Death. Set for release on May 27 through Lacerated Enemy Records.
Unfortunately, I got reinfected with Covid again last week due to helping family members who ended up having it. So this will be a shorter column as a result, whereas I'd otherwise have a lot more to say. At any rate, "Yersinia Pestis" is, as touched on above, a cybernetic and brutality-focused song that's a real treat to behold.
"Yersinia Pestis" is the kind of heavy-hitting technical death metal material that fans of Beneath The Massacre will fucking go apeshit over. As a big fan of that band, I agree this is the real deal shit. The addition of updated ideas from modern tech-death, deathcore, djent, and mathcore to varying degrees helps ensure that the song is no mere clone worship type material to boot.
Sensory Amusia shared with us that "'Yersinia Pestis' is about the death of mankind, consumed by disease. A single bacterium here to abolish all, breeding death and carnage across the world."
Having heard three early singles and based on the group's solid evolution over time, I'm confident this release will be damn good. I'd urge you to check out Breeding Death when it comes out. If you like what you're hearing today and feel so inclined, pre-orders can be placed here and here. You can follow the band over on the Sensory Amusia Facebook Page and Instagram Page.
