Mysterious atmospheric death metal unit Jade is now streaming their new single "Dragged Fears & Drowned Bones." Equal parts pulverizing riffs and spacious passages big enough to hide horrors in dark corners, "Dragged Fears & Drowned Bones" is one hell of a track.
“While the album title calls a metaphor of a hidden fate to be pacified, mostly through rituals and spiritual journeys, the second single here premiered deals with one of the most unique natural scenes to develop the pacification," said Jade. "From all those fears, Mayan people considered the natural pools called Cenotes, portals to enter the underworld, and so, mortuary deposits, receptacles for offerings and also, for human / animal sacrifices.
"This is the second track of the album, and probably the most balanced in terms of showing the different faces of Jade's music all together. The music heaviness is magnified with a way more epic approach in terms of arrangements, but definitely loyal to the mix of brutal, dense and dynamic spirit we aim Jade's music to transmit."
Jade will release The Pacification of Death on November 25, adorned with artwork by Adam Burke (Sólstafir, Evoken, Hooded Menace). Pre-orders are available here via Pulverised Records, here via the band, and here via Cudgel Vertrieb.
