Technical death-metal band The Eating Cave, hailed by The Haunted's Ola Englund as "top notch tech-death at its finest," is now streaming their new single "Aggregate Vanity I: Heretical Hypotheses." Englund's assessment is dead on – this is guttural, disgusting death metal played with such precision and finesse that it's basically impossible to dislike.
"This song is part of a two-part message that illustrates the situation the world has always faced in exploitation and inhumanity. Science being dismissed and demonized in favour of ideological stubbornness. The lyrics describe things like a religion and tribalism as a living beast, feeding on the minds of the populace and tainting our own freewill with misinformation.
"Our debut record was recorded over the course of late 2020 and early 2021. We made an effort to combine everything we love about the extreme metal sub-genres and combine them into one relentless assault on the senses. What started as a creative compromise blossomed into a philosophy, and from this Ingurgitate was born. This album is about all of the horrors we as a species have faced from the beginning of time that have been amplified over these past few years. We have been paying attention, and we are pissed-off."
Ingurgitate is out June 10. Pre-orders are available here.
