Having shattered legs and various other limbs with their pioneering style of slam since the early ‘90s, New York death metal legends, INTERNAL BLEEDING, are preparing to initiate their latest offensive with the release of Imperium — their first new-full length in close to a decade.
Set for release next month via Unique Leader Records, INTERNAL BLEEDING’s Imperium was produced by the band alongside Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studio (Suffocation, Dehumanized, Mortal Decay) in Ronkonkoma, New York. The opus – engineered by Cincotta and Derek Boyer – serves as the band’s heaviest, most slam-fueled manifestation of their grisly catalog.
As a precursor to its unveiling, today the gate keepers at Metal Injection premiere the new video for Imperium’s closing bruiser, “Castigo Corpus Meum.” Loosely meaning “I punish my body,” this smoldering clip serves as the band’s first official music video in their twenty-plus year career. Comments drummer Bill Tolley, “We chose ‘Castigo’ because it contains everything you’d expect from us — the spine crushing slams, the dramatic tempo changes and heavy grooves — plus it has a bit of a surprise twist at the end that we think makes the song interesting and a bit different than what you’d expect from us.”
Fray your eyes and ears to “Castigo Corpus Meum,” now playing at Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.
Coinciding with the release of Imperium, INTERNAL BLEEDING will level stages across North America as part of this year’s crushing Carnival Of Death tour. Set to commence on October 3rd, 2014 in New York City, the tour will leave nearly two-dozen cities in ruin, coming to a close on November 3rd, 2014, in Montreal. The band will be joined by Suffocation, Kataklysm, Jungle Rot and Pyrexia.
