Icelandic death metallers Beneath have premiered a new track/lyric video from their forthcoming album, Ephemeris, via Decibel. Titled “Eyecatcher”, the new two-minute bruiser is chock-full of throttling grooves and technicality. Guitarist Unnar Sigurðsson issued the following comments regarding the impending release:
“Ephemeris is our very best release so far. We wanted to do an album more dynamic and natural than those before and we are extremely proud of the outcome. It has elements from all of us combined into something very different from the other releases.”
Guitarist Jóhann Ingi Sigurðsson adds:
“Ephemeris has been a demanding album for us personally and in many ways, it represents a turning point for the band. We’ve always pushed ourselves in ways that keep us invested and engaged in our music, and on this album, that meant making big changes to our overall sound. There are songs that are a marriage of pure heaviness and brutality, while on the other spectrum there are some very challenging technical arrangements pushing the limits of our playing abilities. In the end, we ended up with an album that feels musically multidimensional and that we are extremely proud of.”

Ephemeris will be released on August 18 via Unique Leader Records. Pre-order here.
