Long-running blackened noise outfit T.O.M.B. have released the official video for their new track, “Abysmal Channeling”.

Welsh death metal quintet Venom Prison have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Animus, over at Team Rock. Titled “Abysmal Agony”, the new track unleashes hellacious and unforgiving blood-splattered riffs and razor-sharp licks in abundance. Vocalist Larissa Stupar comments on the track:
““Animus focuses on the many oppressive forces that, in our view, attempt to control what we say, what we do and what we believe. Lyrically, Abysmal Agony challenges the norms and values that underpin contemporary society. It is very apparent that our preconceptions of mental health for example are governed by what society deems to be madness in the first place. Abysmal Agony sets out to question the parameters and that pre-determination between what is madness and what is sanity. That isn’t a question that too many people want to ask, but it is a determination that governs our everyday existence.”
Stream the track after the break.
Animus will be released on October 14 via Prosthetic Records.
