Italian post-metal outfit Postvorta recently premiered a new track from their forthcoming third full-length album, Carmentis, via Echoes and Dust. Titled “Patau”, the nearly 12-minute behemoth drags the listener into a blackened abyss populated by dense, foreboding atmosphere, leviathanic riffs and soul-crushing groove. Black Table vocalist/guitarist Mers Sumida also lends her acidic screams to the track’s climatic second half. Check out the track now.
Carmentis will be released on May 14 via Third I Rex.
While the majority of the Svbterranean team covered mathcore albums that were released 10 years ago or more, I opted for a record that came out a mere 3 years ago for my final post for March Madness. The record in question is Warsawwasraw‘s debut full-length, Sensitizer; an album that pays tribute to the mathcore and metallic hardcore greats, while giving the genre a vicious kick in the ass. If you enjoy all things fast and chaotic, then please read on.
