San Francisco atmospheric death metal unit, FALLUJAH, is very pleased to hurl forth new track, “Sapphire.”
The latest number, which is currently wreaking audio havoc at MetalSucks, comes by way of the band’s forthcoming new full-length, The Flesh Prevails. The follow-up to 2011’s critically adored The Harvest Wombs and 2013’s subsequent Nomadic EP was mixed, mastered and engineered by Zack Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California over the course of a few months and features guest appearances from guitarist Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Necrophagist) and the voice of Roniit Alkayam. The cover artwork was a collaborative effort between Poland’s Tomasz Alen Kopera and FALLUJAH vocalist, Alex Hofmann.
Notes MetalSucks, “The Flesh Prevails comes with great anticipation: can FALLUJAH take what they did on Nomadic and extrapolate it into an entire album? Will they continue their evolution into modern proggy death metal heroes? If ‘Sapphire’ is any indication, the answer is a hearty ‘yes’ to all of the above. There’s so much going on here that it’ll take a few listens to really sink in; ambient keyboards, layered background vocals, meaty riffs, expertly crafted leads, and incredibly strong melodies all mashed into one dynamic, absolute beast of a song.”
